STRONG, Mary Viola

Age 90, we are deeply saddened by the passing of our muchloved mother, grandmother, and greatgrandmother, Mary Viola (Langlois) Strong, on November 16, 2023. Born in Montreal, Quebec on May 6, 1933, to the late Alfred and Mary Langlois (nee Abraham). Mary worked for Sears Canada for many years. She loved and embraced the relationships she developed with her colleagues, especially her close friend, Shirley Whalen. Later in life days were spent taking walks with Bill and enjoying her close relationships with her children. She dedicated many hours to volunteering at her parish, St. Michaels, and several other local charities. Mary was always warm and affectionate with her grandchildren and loved her sisters deeply. In this time of sorrow, we find strength in the beautiful memories we shared with Mary. We honor her legacy by emulating the values she held dear: love, compassion, and kindness. Though she may no longer walk beside us, her spirit will forever reside in our hearts. The family would like to express their appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding care provided by the staff at Melville Lodge. Mary was a nurturing and devoted mother who showered her two sons and three daughters and their families with unwavering affection. She leaves to mourn her sons, Stephen (Sue), and William (Jennifer); daughters, Nancy (Roch) and, Lisa (Joe); grandchildren, Trevor, Tashia, Danielle, Christian, Lindsay, Justin, Michelle, and David; great-grandchildren, Sierra, Rylin, Andrew, Meaghan, and Lilly; sister, Yvonne Mason.
