Mary was truly a LADY, caring and compassionate. I knew her from our involvement with the Care & Concern Committee of the St. Marys Church. We are blessed with having known her.

The world of many children was a brighter and more loving place because of Mary. A teacher, a friend, a mother, devoted daughter and wife….the list goes on; the world was blessed to have this wonderful woman on earth! Your family is in our prayers….

Wai Fan and I were informed last night (June 15) by Sally and John Mumford, that Mary had passed away. We’re very sorry. I am grateful that our two children, Alex and Lauren were able to meet Mary at the Ehrensberger reunion a few years back and that I had the opportunity to embrace her again after having spent so many years away. I had so wished that we would all have been able to get together again. If the family should do so, it is with great sadness that Mary will only be able to be there in spirit, but her memory and life will live on in us. Very sincerely. Wayne & Wai Fan Ehrensberger and Family

We are so sorry about your loss. Mary was a beautiful person both inside and out. We were sad to hear when she was ill and sorry we did not learn about her passing until long after; we would have come. God grant you love & peace & joy in knowing she is without sufferings.
