Mary was one of the most special people that I knew from the Park Pentecostal church. She always had a ready hug and a beautiful smile and I will always remember her fondly.

Dear Cousin Linda, Lee, and Leslie, and Families
I am so sorry you have lost your Mum, she was a very nice lady. No doubt her faith and the life she lived made her who she was . It was great to see her at the 2012 family reunion and for me, I got to carry her 90th Birthday cake to her. Who better than her oldest and most favorite nephew. Just kidding…maybe.
I had asked Aunt Mary for her (Shalapata) recipes for perogies and homemade noodles with chicken soup, which she brought for me to Nokomis. When I get to make those dishes, It’ll be your Mum I’ll be thinking of.
Please know that I will be thinking of you Ladies, and your loved ones, and of course your Mother, your Father and your brother. They are now all together.
Take care of yourselves.
Love Always, Greg Skelly and my wife Jody


She was a very nice lady,with a huge heart. I was very blessed to have her in my life, even if it was for a short time. May she watch over all of you in this difficult time. You are all in my thoughts!! Rest in peace.
