On April 7, 2019, the heavens came calling and a new angel was granted her wings. MaryLee was the first born to Giuseppe and Liliana Posteraro. Family was huge to MaryLee, from the visits with her cousins, to the big Italian dinners with her family. MaryLee was the oldest of three. She always showed great dictatorship and a true leader. She loved everyone and was always trying to help crack a smile. Hard work was instilled to MaryLee at a young age and she took pride in all her jobs. McDonalds during her teenage years, then Beaver Lumber and finally one of the originals at Zellers. She loved to work, meet new people and make many friends along the way. She had many accomplishments in her life, ones to be proud of. For the past seven years MaryLee had lived at The Hamlets. Even faced with the challenges she made the best of her days. Helping others and working at the tuck stop, she loved to gab and make people smile. She made a numerous amount of friends there, that she called her family also. MaryLee always said her best accomplishment in life was being a mother. She did everything for her kids from the many sleepless nights to the many trips with her son to the Children’s Hospital. Even after her illness she would do whatever it took to see them happy, from watching Three’s Company, doing crafts, learning a new videogame or even being the make-up queen for her daughter to practice on. Her kids were her world, her 2 most precious gifts. MaryLee leaves behind her children Nickolas and Mackenzie (Shannon), her mother Liliana Posteraro, her sister Melisa (Shaun) Dyck, her brother Michael (Lindsay) Posteraro, her many nephews, Thomas, Derian, Elias and Felix and her only niece Milana Posteraro. She also leaves behind many uncles, aunties and cousins both in Canada and Italy. She is predeceased by her father Giuseppe, her Nonno Michele and Giovanni and her Nanna Maria Nina and Milana. The family would like to thank the staff on 4N RIH for all their kind help, also to The Hamlets for all their help making MaryLee’s stay the last few years as happy as it could be. We were truly blessed to have the best nurse to help with her care, even on her stubborn days. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday April 17, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the Holy Family Catholic Church, 2797 Sunset Drive. Private family interment will follow at Hillside Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Diabetes Association in memory of MaryLee.

"God Looked Around His Garden"

God looked around His garden
And found an empty space;
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest;
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain
He knew you might never
Get well upon this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, “Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you never went alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

"The Lord’s Prayer"

Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen


"Psalm 23"

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green
pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for his names sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me
all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the
Lord forever
