She was born to the late Leon and Janina Mauer, March 14, 1958, in Toronto, Ont. Mary attended Ryserson University where she studied Journalism. She was an avid reader and managed a bookstore for most of her life.
Mary was a kind loving person, her family meant everything to her. She enjoyed gardening, walking in the park and was a huge lover of animals including her cats. She was often referred to affectionately as the crazy cat lady which evoked her big laugh. She had a uniquely direct sense of humor that made her even more endearing to her family and friends.
Mary is survived by her husband Frank, brother Alex (Pat Mauer), Nephew Chris (Leah) Mauer, niece Lindsay (Ian) Mauer, Mother-in-law Gladys (John) Axworthy brother-in-law John (Marian) Axworthy and 5 great nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her late brother-in-law Reg Axworthy.
