With strength and grace Mary passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May, 11, 2022 in her 97th year. Born in St.Thomas, Ontario, November 23, 1925. Alma College Alumni. Beloved wife of Howard Neil Finkbeiner (2000). Survived by her four children, Richard (Joanne), David (Kelly), Craig (Sherri) and Carol (Deighton), and by 11 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Avid traveller, newspaper reader, supportive and loving Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and friend. Mary was always up for an adventure, a wee glass of wine or dessert. She was ahead of her time in her thinking and thought it was important to try to learn everyone’s name. She was a strong, supportive woman and we will all miss her dearly. Thank you to all of the Residents and Staff of Richmond Woods, Dr. Andy Thompson, Arva Clinic, and the wonderful staff at University Hospital.
As per Mary’s request cremation has taken place. The family will hold a private memorial at a later date. In lieu of flowers please do a kind deed in Mary’s honour.
