We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our sweet loving mother on October 25, 2016. We were so fortunate to have been with her on her journey back to God and to be reunited with her beloved son John and husband Bernie. Loving mother of Mary Kit (Bill) McGrath, the late John (Renee) Malette, Marc Malette, and Michelle (Mark) Manders. Dear step-mother of the late Bob (Leone) McKrow, the late Gary (Donna) McKrow, Maureen (Rob) Hagman, Marilyn (Dave) Holwell, and Brian McKrow. Grandma to Shannon, Erin, and Matthew McGrath; Jackie (Rob Biswas), Rachelle (Kevin Christensen), John Paul, and Gabrielle Malette; Conor, Eoin, and Claire Barry; Harrison and Hunter Manders; Nicole McKrow; Kerrigan (Eric) Nealson, and Matthew (Lyndsi) McKrow; Stephanie and Craig Hagman; Kristin (Chris) Nagle, Jeffrey, Caitlin (Jared) O’Hara; and Kevin and Erin McKrow. Great-grandma to Rachel Biswas; Eva and Jack Nealson; Madison and Colton McKrow; Logan Nagle; and Owen O’Hara. Survived by her brother Bill (Annette) Bridgeman and sister-in-law Sister Suzanne Malette. Aunt Mary will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. She graduated from the Hotel-Dieu Nursing Program in 1953, where she was class president. A nurse by profession, and a true caregiver at heart, her mission in life was to make those around her feel loved, even to her last days. Her warmth and engaging spirit will be missed by all.
