Mahon. She was predeceased by both her parents, her husband William Miles Shaen (Bill), and siblings Dorothy, Marjorie,

She was a wonderful, kind, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Mary’s greatest love in life was her
family and you would always find her with a smile on her face and a hugely positive attitude on life.
As well she was very active for over 25 years in the hospital auxiliary & quilting group and truly enjoyed her weekly get togethers
with the girls in her knitting and bridge clubs.
She is survived by her brother Arthur Mahon, children Deborah (Jim), James (Linda), and Margaret, grandchildren Kathryn, Kyle
(Melanie), Christopher (Shana), Adam (Karlie), and Erin, as well as great grandchildren , Anderson, Laila, Eliza, and Kingston.

special thanks to Dr. Bill McCready for his care which was always above and beyond.
As per Mary’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
