Mae was a wonderful woman whom I had the pleasure of meeting while I worked as concierge at Rideau retirement residence.
We had many late night talks and laughs as she was a nighthawk! I learned about her life, her many jobs and mischievous nature. She loved her family very much and talked lovingly about her daughters, Marilyn and April. She showed me pictures of her grandchildren and told me all about them. I appreciated the time I spent getting to know Mae and will remember her fondly. My sincere condolences to all her family and friends. Mae is smiling down on all of us holding hands with her loving husband Dick by her side.
