elevated l7zHC Born in Toronto on July 26, 1931 to Angelina and Francesco. Mary grew up surrounded by her 12 siblings and a large extended family of relatives, neighbours and friends. Throughout her life, her compassion shone most brightly when she was hosting, always extending herself so that everyone would feel like they were at home. She enjoyed many adventures in her world travels with her husband and their band of close-knit friends, never more than when she found herself in the warm sun on a white sandy beach. She will be greatly missed by her siblings Florie, Mafalda (Duke), Josie (Nino), Junie (Larry) and Dominic (Josephine).
