BEATTIE, CAIB, MARY LOUISA Peacefully, on Monday, November 4, 2019, age 65, in Markham, ON, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by parents Elizabeth (Beth) Agnes Mary (nee Tremayne) and Allan Leslie Beattie. Greatly mourned by husband Tony D'Ambrosio, children Heather and Mark Plath, and sisters Elizabeth (James Greenshields), Barbara (Frank Aiello) and Leslie (David Prescott). Ex-wife of Harold Plath.

Fondly remembered by many cousins and other members of her extended family.

Fond memories of campfires under the stars will always be treasured. Heartfelt thanks to all the dedicated and compassionate staff who cared for both Mary and her family caregivers in the Southlake Regional Health Centre and Markham Stouffville Hospital, especially Doctors Trinkaus and Dai, and the nurses in the Palliative Care Units of both hospitals.
