Our home was a gathering spot on the Green Road and, while it could get pretty crowded on occasion, there was always room for one more. It was Mary's way of keeping a tight rein on her seven children. Nannie Burke was a fierce card player and loved to play with her grandchildren, who respectfully say "she never liked to lose." Mary also enjoyed a life of volunteerism and gave freely of her time to the CNIB, Meals on Wheels, and her church. She was an avid knitter and donated many of her crafts to a variety of charities or to anyone who was in need of mittens, hats or scarves. Mom was our pillar of strength and while we grieve her loss, we celebrate the rich legacy she leaves behind. That family is our greatest asset, that we can accomplish anything with hard work and determination, and giving unconditionally to others has long lasting rewards. We were blessed by her gifts and will carry her in our hearts forever.
Mary is survived by her children, Robert (Kathy), Brenda (Frank Frison), Donna (Gareth Rowe), Bonnie (Len Verhaeghe), Marie (Wendell Aucoin), Marlene (Charlie Bond), Gail (Leo McDonnell); grandchildren, Tanya, Curtis, Amanda, Darrell, Jocelyn, Lynette, Shea, Janine, Mandy, Kerrianne, Andrew, Rochelle, Jeff, Shauna, David, Karla, Ryan, Charissa, Liam, Cory; 15 great-grandchildren; a brother, George Hickman and sisters-in-law, Agnes Burke, Mary Hickman, Joan Hickman, Eileen Hickman and many nieces and nephews. Mary was predeceased by her husband, Walter "Buddy" Burke in 1979, along with brothers, Randall, Wallace, Herbert, Jabez, Curtis, James, Norman and sister, Hester Hanson.
The family would like to extend sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Archibald and the caring and compassionate staff of Levattes Lane, Harbourstone for the past five years.
