Your mother was a wonderful friend to my mother, Barbara Keith, at Liberty Commons. I was lucky enough to meet Mary several times and always thought how lovely she looked dressed to the nines and filled with energy.
Mary would give my mom excellent recommendations on PBS specials to catch, bring her magazines, and share fun treats like pizza and cookies from Chrissy. What a beautiful friendship they had, and it made quarantine bearable. My mom loved Mary and misses her, she's is so thankful that she got to know her. My siblings and I were so saddened to hear that she had passed. What a special person she was. Our heartfelt condolences to your family.
Best,
Sarah Keith

Mary was one of a kind..always looking beautiful and the most stylishly elegant lady on Cape Cod. I have many happy memories of time spent with Mary.,and I was so gratified to know that she was happy and cheerful at the end of her life. The Cannata family is now gone, I loved hearing Mary’s stories of growing up in Dorchester in a family with 10 children. I send my condolences to Kenny, Chrissy, and Kevin. My thoughts are with you.

My husband and I used to enjoy visits with Auntie Mary when we were in Chatham. She was so thoughtful when I had my transplant. She called often and sent gifts. She was the last of the Originals (the 10 Cannatas). She was a grand old gal. ❤️
