I posted a memory but am not sure that it went through so am doing it again.
I just want to say that Mary will be missed by all of us at Granville Courts. She was always kind to everyone and very much a lady.
Since she lived right next to the front door it was not unusual for some one to knock on her door and ask to come in and rest because they were exhausted after a long walk or needed to sit down while doing laundry across the hall.
We all enjoyed her piano music and missed it when it dismissed with her loss of memory.
Even with memory loss she maintained an extraordinary sense of humor and a calm demeanor .
We will all miss her.
