Young (nee Hayes), Mary Joyce

July 24th, 2017

"Merrie" passed away on Monday, July 24, 2017, at London's Victoria Hospital, at the age of 86. Beloved aunt of Glenn and Lois Hayes, Diane Hayes, Janet Hunter, and John Barnes.  Lovingly remembered by great-nieces and great-nephew Heather, Anna and Jason, and many other great-nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her sister, Verna, and her brother, John.  Mary will also be fondly remembered by her many friends here and in Florida.  Mary was awarded a life membership in The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs by her peers.  She will also be remembered for her work with disadvantaged children in the Florida school systems and in London.  Mary was a tireless and selfless volunteer.  She was a dedicated member of the Metropolitan United Church's Knit Wits, whose knitting raised funds for various missions.  She directed the church's annual Christmas pageant for many years.  In her later years, Mary faced her many medical challenges with courage, determination, and optimism. Special thanks to CCAC, all the PSW's, nurses, doctors, and friends who made it possible for Mary to stay in her apartment with her beloved cat, Chloe. At Mary's request there will be no memorial service.  Private interment at Lakeview Cemetery, Sarnia.

Book of Condolences

Georgeanne and Robert GrandMary was an amazing person who always had a cheerful smile and attitude to everyone she saw at Metropolitan United. In her last few days in the apartment we enjoyed some Tim Bits that I brought to each visit.Mary would select several then want to pay for them, but of course I didn't accept. I introduced her several years ago to Chloe at the Humane Society and it was love at first sight between the two of them. Chloe was her faithful companion over the past many years. We were all made better people having known Mary. Bob
