The death occurred peacefully on Thursday, February 15, 2018, in the arms of her loving family, of Mary Jeanette (Rossiter) Driscoll of Charlottetown, aged 95, at the Mount Continuing Care Community. Mary was the dear wife of Wilfred and beloved mother of Ellen, Monica (Mark Ledwell), Mary (Bill Simmons), Christine (Russ Mallard) and Madelyn (Alan Pickard). Mary (Nanny) will be lovingly remembered by her cherished grandchildren: Lauren Ledwell (Nathan Snowie), Kathryn Ledwell; Emily Mallard (Kevin Robinson), Jonathan Mallard, Ellen Mallard and Anna Mallard; by her sister Genevieve (Toddy) Ryan (Aquinas, deceased); by brother-in-law Lawrence Driscoll (Libby); sisters-in-law Joan Driscoll (Bob, deceased), Bernadette Driscoll (Fred, deceased), and by many beloved nieces and nephews.
