It is with great sadness that the Hanlon family announces the passing of our dear Mary Minnie. She was a tender and loving wife, mom, grandma, great grandma, friend and nurse. She was a maritimer at heart, born in Aulac, New Brunswick in 1934. She loved an afternoon of bridge with her friends, music, and berry picking. She loved time at the cottage in the Cypress Hills; watching the wrens and looking for bluebirds. She loved a good joke, a good story, a good time and heart to heart visits with friends and family. She and Dad; the love of her life, Roy, always had an open door policy at their home and loved it when friends popped by for an “elbows on the table” visit. Mom loved to help people she knew and those she did not. She was honest with her words and kind. She loved to laugh. Those who met her always remembered her spirit and smile. She never forgot a name or a face. She was an amazing woman who we were blessed to have in our lives. She valued her friends; present and past. She was strong in faith. She will be dearly missed and fondly remembered. She was our anchor. She is loved beyond words.
We would like to thank Dr. Anselm, Dr. Lintott and Mrs. Lintott, and all the the staff at St. Joseph’s, for the care and compassion given to Mom and our family.
At this time, no formal funeral service will be held.
