She was a loving companion to her partner, Joey, for over three years as well as a caring friend, willing to help anyone and everyone in need. Mary was an animal lover, an artist, a poet, a loving aunt. She was never one to mince words or soften her blunt tongue, but her kindness and honesty drew many to her. She was loved, and will be missed, by many. This gift is Mary’s last act of kindness in a life full of support and love for others”.
