Mary loved looking after her two granddaughters while they were growing up, then also enjoyed seeing them both marry and have children of their own.
Mary enjoyed researching her family tree, with the help of a researcher in England. She was also an avid coin and stamp collector. She knitted various items most of her life until arthritis stopped her in her 90’s. A few of her hobbies were watching birds and growing a garden and amazing flowers. Mary also enjoyed music by Don Messer, Tommy Hunter and others of that generation.
In earlier times, Mary was a member of the Leross Goodtimers (a senior citizens centre) where she enjoyed playing cards, shuffleboard and doing jigsaw puzzles. Jigsaw puzzles were something she enjoyed doing at Echo Lodge right up until the end.
