Mary Balsor - 76, of Glenmont, Kings County, died peacefully, Monday, January 7, 2013 at the Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville, Nova Scotia after a brief battle with cancer. She is predeceased by her parents, Clarence and Estella Connors; three brothers, David, Ralph and Alison (Bunny) and her husband, Sheldon Balsor. Surviving are her two children, Michael Balsor of Centreville and Michele James of Dartmouth; one granddaughter, Sara of Dartmouth; one sister, Linda of Canning, Nova Scotia. Mary was one of a kind; with a dry wit and unique sense of humour, she made an immediate and lasting impression on anyone she met. She will not be forgotten. She lived her life to the fullest, raising and loving her family, taking care of her many pets, and crocheting. In later years she could always be found accompanied by her treasured friend, Marilyn Harris. A special “thank you” to Marilyn, Audrey and the staff at Valley Regional Hospital for their wonderful care. Cremation has been arranged with the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Kentville. Mary requested that no memorial service or funeral be held in her memory. Memorial contributions may be made to the NS SPCA or a local animal shelter. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.whitefamilyfuneralhome.com.
