The smile on her face would instantly put one on yours. Through life’s ups and downs Mary‘s concerns always seemed to be about everyone else: her family, her nurses, her social workers and all of their families. She was wise beyond her years: after four years of treatments she knew as much about AML as her doctors. They considered her less of a patient, more of a soldier in the fight. But when at home she was a normal teenager, hitting you with one of her funny quips and a quirky smile. She didn’t need a whole lot of summer to be happy; perhaps as little as five seconds. Make-a-Wish arranged for her to meet the band. It wasn’t their looks that she liked so much: Mary was just into the music.
She is survived by her parents, Anthony and Debbie; her brother, Anthony; maternal grandfather, Leonard Cohen; and paternal grandmother, Mary Lou Paschall.
