To my beautiful sister Mary. I cannot believe you are not here with us, God took you away from us too soon. I will always remember the great memories we shared together. You were the most caring, loving, and funny sister anyone can have, and the most loving aunt to my three daughters. We will miss your smile and positive energy.

Mary you were such a great cook, you made the best rice balls, pizza, lasagna, and the list could go on forever. Your homemade cookies were the best, especially your italian peach cookies!

Heaven is so lucky to have gained an angel as sweet as you. May you, mom, and dad watch over us all. I love and miss you so much!
Rest in peace Mary. You will forever be in our hearts. Until we meet again.

Love you!

Your little sister,
Franca DiNuzzo

I was blessed to work with our beloved friend Mary Borelli. I would have so many great memories to share with her. The love and the legacy she left to her family, friends and community was so special and will never end. But one particular recent memory that really touched me was on the afternoon of November 27th at York University. Me and another few colleagues were walking around when we saw the tree we use to hang out and chat at with Mary. After we heard a bird singing but didn’t know where it was coming from. We looked at the tree and there was a beautiful red cardinal singing. For all of you who don’t know what it means to see or encounter a cardinal please take the time to look it up it will really touch you. I believe that, that cardinal was beautiful Mary saying goodbye to her dear friends for the last time at York University or as she would say her second family

Mary you were the kindest most loyal friend ever. I will miss you forever.
My condolences and prayers go to Mary’s family
