MARY DELORES KELLY It is with heavy hearts but restful souls we say our farewells to our beloved mother, best friend and mentor. Our Mom would like to speak of her passing as her Graduation Day. Such befitting words for a life well lived, purposeful and anchored by faith. Predeceased by her two husbands, Albert and Arnold. Loving mother of Susan (Jean-Claude Cadieux), Michael, Rosemary, Sean (Linda), Kim (the late Jim Malcolm) and Shannon (Andy Holba). Proud grandmother of Michelle, Kelly, Emma, Patrick, Damien, Lindsey, Meaghan, Charleen and Mary Beth. Dear cousin of Helen and Bruce Brown and sister-in-law of Claire Noonan. Mary will also be missed by her many nieces, nephews, family and friends. Everyone that had the privilege to know our Mom knew her extraordinary journey and the legacy she will leave behind. She had a remarkable outlook on life. Her attitude was one of gratitude and every day was a precious gift to behold. Her faith was her strength and her armour and believed God's will would be done through all trials and tribulations. Our Mom was an ambassador for the souls of the faithful departed and would have countless people to pray for during the course of her day. Our loving Mom, Mommy, Ma, Mersie, Nana, Noonan, Little Grandma; May heaven be everything you had anticipated it to be and may your mother be waiting for you with open arms. Go with our blessings and peace and until we meet at heaven's gate, know we will always love you and miss you until that day. We thank you God for this thy gift. Our heartfelt gratitude and thanks for the extraordinary care from the Trillium Health Centre team.
