She was 39 plus tax. Mary moved with her family from Manitoba to Nova Scotia when she was young. Mary married Percy Priest on August 5, 1950, and they were married for 67 wonderful years. After they married, they moved to Ontario to make a better life for themselves. They lived in Etobicoke for over 30 years and Mary waited for the day when they could return home to Nova Scotia. They traveled for a few years and visited a lot of friends and family across Canada. Mary loved the beach and everything to do with the farm. She loved fishing, cribbage, bingo and music. Mary is survived by her husband, Percy and her children, Linda (Chris) of Brampton, ON., David (Shirley) of Hillsborough, N.B., Teresa (Jack) Bowmanville, ON., Alan (Jody) of Huntsville, ON.; many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
