We, the loving family of Mary Ann Buffett (Morrison), are so very sad to announce her passing Monday, Aug. 20, 2012, in Baddeck where she resided for the last 13 years.
Mary was a lifelong resident of North Sydney until 1999 when she and her husband Archie moved to Baddeck with their loving daughter and son-in-law Rhyburn, to live out their remaining years. She died peacefully in her home, surrounded by her family.
Born in North Sydney, she was the daughter of the late John and Annabelle (Dunphy) Morrison.
Mary was very active in the North Sydney community, a lifelong member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 19 and the Ladies Auxiliary. She spent many years catering for the North Sydney Rotary Club and also was a member with the Senior Citizens & Pensioners Club. In her spare time, she enjoyed playing darts and of course her beloved bingo.
Mary was well loved by many and had endless love to spare for her huge network of family, friends and pets, namely Midge, Max, Buffy and a long line of Joe’s. Not a Christmas passed that she didn’t make or supervise the making of her famous plum puddings for friends and family far and wide.
Mary was a member of St. Joseph Church, North Sydney, and recently a member of St. Michael Church in Baddeck.
