It is with heavy hearts and loving memories that the family announce the peaceful passing of Mary Luty. Mary will reunite with her loving husband Andy (2016) of 66 years, who will be waiting for her with open arms and dance once again to ‘Besame Mucho’, the first song that began their love story. Cherished and forever remembered in their hearts by children Jackie (Charlie), Diane, Connie (Pat), Marlene (Darrell), and Christopher (Deborah).  Affectionately remembered by grandchildren Colin, Elyse, Ryan, Chelsea, Brett, Ben, Breanna, Michael, Claire and Ethan.  Fondly remembered by great-grandchildren Avery, Olive, Quinn, Andrew, Catherine, and Chase.  Dearly remembered by her relatives across North America.

A very special and heartfelt thank you for the kindness, gentle, compassionate and professional health care provided by the entire Dorchester Terrace team during her 4+ year stay.  She loved you all so very much and truly appreciated all that you provided for her comfort.  For the past year, our family wishes to thank Dr. Maria Parent and the Palliative Care Outreach Team, the dedicated PSW’s from South West Home and Community Care Support Services, the special care taken by the nurses of the VON, and the wonderful environment provided by the staff and facilities at St. Joseph’s Hospice.  This was a community of support to our Mom and our family, and expertly guided us through some difficult decisions with best interest and outcomes in mind.  We thank you.

I met your beautiful mom through my mom, Victoria Kaluschny, who loved Mary and the whole family. My mom kept me updated on special events in your family. I just wanted to pass on my condolences and good thoughts on behalf of my mom who passed away in 2020. I’m sure my wonderful mother is welcoming your wonderful mother in heaven. I am sorry for your loss.
