Not sure what to say?

I was a graduate student with Mary Ann at UofT, and then we discovered that we both lived on Gilmour St. in Peterborough. We studied 18th century poetry together. Whenever she spoke in seminars, I always knew I would learn something interesting and meaningful. After that I used to see her on Gilmour St. with Grace--what a beautiful name she gave her daughter. I'm so sorry to learn of her death.

Working at Trent I saw first hand how many students Mary Ann touched. She left a lasting impression with those that benefitted from her wisdom.

I worked with Mary Ann at Trent. I so much appreciated her professionalism, her care, her intelligence and thoughtfulness in all matters. She leaves a rich legacy among students and instructors who benefitted from her knowledge and kindness.
