Mary Naismith (Mae) Glass (nee Offord)

Mae was born on January 30, 1917 in Midland, Ontario. She married the late Donald Harvey Glass in 1939, and graciously supported him with all his community endeavours. They lived in Aurora until his death in 1998 and she continued to live there until she died peacefully at Sunrise of Aurora on June 24, 2020. Throughout her rich and full life, she enjoyed travelling, baking, curling, and golf; but mostly, spending time with her family. She truly had a wonderful life.

She was pre-deceased by her son Donnie and daughter-in-law Kathy. She is survived by her daughter Nancy (Phil). She is also survived by her grandchildren Robert (Line), Cheryl (John), Jennie (Rob), and Amanda, and by her great-grandchildren Brittney, Davis, RJ, Courtney, Rachel, Jocelyn, and Megan. Mom – Grandma – Great-Grandma will be sadly missed, but we know she is at peace and re-united with Don.

The family would like to thank the staff at Sunrise of Aurora for the loving care they have provided for her during her stay there. The affection they showed to her was most heartwarming. It allowed her to complete her life in dignity, especially through these difficult times.

Donations in Mae’s name are welcome to Trinity Anglican Church - Aurora, www.trinityaurora.ca or Southlake Regional - Stronach Cancer Centre, www.southlake.ca

'Grandma' Mary was a truly wonderful person. One of the rare few you will meet in life who truly leave a legacy in the hearts of all who knew her.
She was kind, gentle and graceful and I have had the privilage of knowing her through Jenn, for many years.
May you find comfort at this time, in the beautiful memories you have of Mary.
Our best wishes, Jody, Chris and Amelia Bowskill.

Aunt Mae and Uncle Don were always special . Jim would often talk about fun times when he was young, visiting their home in Aurora. We enjoyed our visit with Mae and family a few years ago. So sorry for your loss, she will be dearly missed .
