August 3, 1922 – November 7, 2020
Mary was Promoted to Glory on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at Cawthra Gardens Long Term Care Residence in Mississauga, Ontario at the age of 98.
She is survived by her brother George Stott (Mabel) of Stratford, son Ken (Myrna) and daughter Dianne (Blair), step-son Doug Lewis (Betty Ann) and step-daughter Barbara Giles. She was predeceased by her parents, George and Eliza Stott, her sister Doris and husbands Kenneth Rix and Charles Lewis and step-son in law Borden Giles. There were 13 Grandchildren, 25 Great Grandchildren and 2 Great Great Grandchildren.
Mary had a passion of caring for other people and was a dedicated employee for many years at the Salvation Army Grace Hospital in Toronto.
Mary was always thinking of how she could help and assist others, whether it be for her family, church, neighbourhood or wherever she saw a need. Her life was a living example of her favourite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
Mary adored her large extended family whom she loved dearly and thoroughly enjoyed their many visits and time together.
After retirement, Mary and Charlie took many trips taking them to many destinations. They wintered for a number of years in Florida, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Mary will be missed by her family and friends.
Special thanks to the entire staff of Cawthra Gardens Long Term Care Residence for the love and support that was extended to Mary. We salute all our “Frontline Heroes” at Cawthra Gardens.
Due to COVID guidelines, there will be a private family graveside service at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
Donations in Mary’s memory may be made to The Salvation Army Mississauga Community & Family Services, 3167 Cawthra Rd, Mississauga, ON L5A 2X4. Online condolences and information can be found at; www.andrewscommunityfuneralcentre.com

Mary was a special friend and we have had so many wonderful visits over the past five years. We have laughed together, cried together and shared photos, devotional thoughts, music, and personal experiences from both our lives. she gave me inspiration when I was down and I got her giggling when she was down.
I am going to miss her so much but I am thankful that we both shared the same faith and she is now in that beautiful home that we all look forward to experiencing. Blessings Mary, I love you
