Loving mother of Marge (Bob) Talosi and Peter (Virginia) Rivney. Cherished Grandmother of Robert (Betty) Talosi, Lynn (Matt) Gripentrog, Dexter and Danielle Rivney.

Predeceased by her parents George and Victoria Balion, brother Andrew Balion, sister Elizabeth Curtin,  infant sisters Rose and Tina granddaughter Leanne (fiance Carlo Nero) Talosi.

Mary was born in Montreal Quebec in 1918. She was a longstanding member of the Port Colborne Legion, Branch #56. She resided at Royal Rose Place in Welland since July 2016. She participated in many activities and always had the staff laughing with her quick sense of humour. She was well loved by all there and loved them all dearly.

A special thank you and sincere appreciation to the staff of Royal Rose Place for their care, compassion and especially the Honour Guard as Mary left for the last time.

In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place with arrangements entrusted to the ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 179 Clarence Street, Port Colborne.  There will be a private family burial at a later date.

If so desired, memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice.
