Mary (Mae) Flynn (nee Parsons)
Born: September 24th, 1927
Passed on: March 22nd, 2016
A gentle, kind, loving heart stopped beating 12:07, March 22, 2016. It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our dear mom. She slipped away at Placentia Health Centre in the presence of her loving daughter. She is predeceased by her husband Nick, son Gary, parents Cornelius and Adelaide Parsons, and friend Mike Critch. Left with broken hearts, daughter Ann Marie McGrath (Jerome); sons Derm (Dianne), Ray (Sandy), Terry (Carole), Don (Lois), Danny (Donna), Les (Audrey), Ken (Linda), Rod (Sandie), and Keith (Tracey); daughter-in-law Judy (Denis); brothers and sisters Lar (Anne), Con (Mary), Walter (Ann), Gerry (Evelyn), Martin (Donna), Al (Annie), Genny Follett (Johnny, deceased), Chris Furlotte (Omer), and Veronica King (Michael, deceased); 18 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, whom she adored; and many other relatives and friends. Mom spent her lifetime volunteering and helping others from ministering to the sick and shut-ins, to Scout Leader, 4-H, teaching dancing to school children (which she excelled in), Senior Citizens Clubs, Star of the Sea Ladies Auxiliary, St. Anne's Sodality, and her daily visits to Lions Manor Nursing Home, just to name a few. She was never one to mince her words, but there was love and concern behind every word. She will be remembered as a hard worker with a heart of gold, and a very giving, caring soul. Her wit and humour will be remembered in years to come, and will bring smiles to all who knew her. Special thank you to Dr. Mangat and the staff at the Placentia Health Centre, and to her life long friend Dr. Ross Penney. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Maher's Funeral Home. Visitation to take place on Thursday from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm, and Friday from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Funeral Service to take place 11 am on Saturday, March 26th at Sacred Heart Church, Placentia. Interment to follow at Dermot McGettigan Memorial Cemetery, Southeast Placentia. Flowers greatly accepted or donations may be made to the Janeway Telethon.
"Her life on earth was a personification of her love of God, her family and her friends. In turn she will be ever remembered and ever loved."
