Born on March 23, 1936, in Sydney, Mary was the daughter of the late Frank and Clothilda ‘Tillie’ MacPhee of Sydney River. She was an exceptionally caring and sweet person who never forgot a birthday, or a kind word. An avid gardener, she enjoyed cultivating many beautiful flower gardens. Mary will be missed by all who knew her.

Besides her parents, Mary was predeceased by brothers, Daniel and John; sisters, Florence and Sr. Helen, and her beloved daughter-in-law, Melanie MacLennan-Fraser.

Mary will also be missed dearly by her sister-in-law, Joan and nephew, Mark who provided her with much support. Additionally, she will be missed by her niece, Beth and neighbour, Donna, as well as many nieces and nephews.
