BURDEN, Mary Jo

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Mary Jo Burden, beloved wife of Michael Crowe, on Saturday, March 30, 2013 at the age of 59 years. Mary Jo, or MJ as she was affectionately known, had a very generous heart. She loved animals both large and small. MJ was devoted to her animals, Kelly, Shara and Roo. Her favourite place and time was taking her dogs for long walks in Fish Creek Park and exploring the area with her trusted companions. MJ graduated from the University of Toronto in nursing. She worked for the sick children's hospital in Toronto, where her passion truly lied. MJ will be lovingly remembered by her husband Michael Crowe; her mother Josephine; sister Nancy; brothers Jim and Brad; stepdaughter Arielle; and son Patrick; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY'S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
