It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Mary Patricia Currie (McGinn), loving wife of John Currie (deceased) and beloved mother of Mary Kate and Michael on Saturday, July 31, 2021. Mary died peacefully at Sunnybrook Hospital after a sudden illness.
Mary was born in 1937 and was a lifelong Torontonian. Mary attended St Peter’s and St Anselm’s grade schools, followed by Loretto Abbey. She graduated from St Michael’s School of Nursing in 1959 as a Registered Nurse and had a long and fulfilling career in healthcare. Mary worked at St Michael’s hospital, the Canadian Cancer Society, St Elizabeth Visiting Nurses, completed a long-term care certificate at Ryerson and established her own eldercare company. Mom loved being a nurse, and it showed.
Mary’s greatest joy however was her family. Mary married her husband Jack in 1961 and moved to Leaside soon after, where they raised their two children and attended St Anselm’s parish. In 2000 they moved to Blessed Trinity Parish where they made many more wonderful friends. Mary and Jack also enjoyed being Florida snowbirds for many years.
Mom was a tall, elegant lady, who loved music, dancing, fashion, travelling, meeting new people and spending time with family & old friends. She had a big, kind heart, a ready smile and loved to have fun.
The family will receive friends at the Holy Cross Funeral Home, 8361 Yonge Street, Thornhill, on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 from 5-8 p.m. and at Blessed Trinity Parish (3220 Bayview Ave, North York) from 10-11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 4th. A funeral mass will follow at 11 a.m. at Blessed Trinity Parish. If you wish to stream the Funeral Mass, please click the link below
