Mary was the first person I saw on on Monday morning at Canton. Her cheery disposition literally made my day. She truly cared about our patients, especially the children. It was a privilege to work with her.

As she always told me, " Have a great week, Mary"

I had the pleasure of working with Mary for 3 years. She was actually the first person I ever spoke to at Canton when coming in for my interview. She was so kind I just knew it would be a good fit. My favorite memory of Mary was around Christmas last year, we were discussing Christmas music and what our favorites were. When I mentioned Trans Siberian Orchestra's Carol of the Bells she immediately broke out into song. She even started playing the air drums while doing it! We laughed so much after that. She was always a person who would listen to you even when you were rambling. Mary was so dedicated to her job here at Canton. Rain or snow could not stop her from showing up here every morning with a smile ready to start the day. Heaven gained an angel.

My deepest sympathies to Bob, Heather and family. Mary was the first person I hired as a supervisor at UofM. When she left for a job closer to home we both cried. When she called me to return I was so very happy. When I retired 2 years ago, again we both cried. Mary was my friend and confidant and what many may not have known about Mary is how very wise she was. Today I cry alone, missing my dear friend. Jokingly I called her Mary Cori most of the time, so I love you Mary Cori! May you Rest In Peace my friend.

Still saddened by the news of your passing, hoping that I will walk around the corning and see you smiling at the front desk. Although, I know your physical presence is no longer, your memory still echos in my head. Your smile, positive attitude and willingness to help others are only a few of the wonderful things that you will be remembered for. My prayers for comfort & peace are for the loved ones left behind missing a piece of their heart.

We are so deeply saddened to hear of Mary's passing. It was a pleasure being her neighbors for the past 11 years. Its hard to believe we will not be seeing her smiling face anymore. Mary was always very kind and caring to our Ella, Laila, and Dakota. Our thoughts and Prayers to Bob, Heather, and the family.

I'll miss my sweet friend Mary we always loved sharing a laugh together! I honestly can't ever recall seeing Mary in a bad mood or not smiling in all the time we worked together at the canton health center.
May warm memories Comfort your family in the days ahead

Mary had a special place in the Pediatric Pod at CHC where she served as our Pod Clerk for a time a little over ten years ago. In this role she was responsible for helping the providers with their schedule changes and other needs. As the Physician Pod Lead at the time, I worked closely with Mary on solving problems in our pod. I recall getting frustrated a few times and Mary saying with a bright smile on her face “Don’t’ worry Dr. Andreae. Things have a way of working out.” While she went out of her way to help the providers, it was clear she missed her true passion of helping patients and when the opportunity arose, she returned to the front desk position where she remained until her passing. Even after she left the Pediatric Pod, she remained close to many of us in the Pod frequently going out of her way to stop in and say hello and ask about our families and telling us about hers. We will miss her cheerful smile and reassurance that no matter how bad things seem, they work themselves out. I feel blessed that she touched my life.

Mary I will truly miss your lovely smile. Every time I walked passed your desk you made sure you said Hello to me. You always took the time to ask how my day was going. Never once did I heard you complain you were a real trouper and a great PSA. I will always remember your kindness I will miss you dearly my friend. You've earned your wings.
