Mary worked for an optometrist in Los Altos for over 15 years. Also dedicating her time to raising her two children, Kathy and John, along with enjoying life with so many close friends. Mary dearly loved spending time with her three grandchildren, Joseph, MacLean and Daryl, along with visiting her large family in Vancouver and Scotland.
