Mary was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and moved to Canada with her parents at the age of 2. She married Leonard in 1963. Together they raised their six children on a farm north of Mayerthorpe. Mary had many jobs throughout the years with her most important ones being a mother, wife, and farmer. After Leonard passed away in 2000, Mary stayed on the farm until health issues forced her to move to town in 2016. Mary spent the last four years in the Mayerthorpe Auxiliary Hospital. Her children wish to thank the staff for the respect and dignity shown to the residents and their families. You were there for Mom when we could not be there.
