Mary Sue was my boss many years ago when I worked as a dietitian at the Calgary General Hospital. I remember her love of food, nutrition and family, and her generosity in sharing that passion with all of us.I wasn't surprised to learn she had also become a chef. Having lost touch, I was surprised to hear of her passing. My heart goes out to her family and friends, especially David and their children.
When I think about my visits to the family home, I recall that Mary Sue was a very caring person. She was always so welcoming. She is surely missed by all who knew her. My condolences to Mary Sue's family and friends.
My condolences to Mary Sue's family and friends and peers. It was because of Mary Sue I was encouraged to become more involved with the profession; she was a great mentor, peer, and inspiration. I was fortunate to enjoy her amazing cooking, and I feel priveleged to have even a glimpse of her passion for everything she did in life - with her family, with her profession, in the kitchen, in the classroom, in front of a crowd. A fond memory was to have her explain her amazing walls of cookbooks that lined her kitchen, and I continue to enjoy those she created. Just like her recipes, she had a zest that gave spice to life! It is just so sad she had to leave us so soon. Her life has touched so many of us! Mary Sue, may your spirit live on, may memories of your beautiful person help those at this sad time of loss.
Our condolences and sympathy for Mary Sue's immediate family, loved ones and friends. We use her cook books and were inspired by her courage and zest for life and will to live. Though we didn't se her often, she will be fondly remembered in our thoughts and prayers.
