Mary Isobel Cooper (nee Walker) May 9, 1924 – August 6, 2020 (96 years)

On May 9, 1924, the Galt, Ontario doctor, who delivered Mary Isobel Walker, told the wee tyke’s parents she likely wouldn’t live through the night. That was 96 years and 88 days ago – give or take a few either way for leap years – and Mary, Mary Quite Contrary has stubbornly refused to do what she’s been told ever since. And even after emergency surgery, performed July 2, to ease severe pain from a shattered hip, she kept her family, her friends and her exemplary team of Wellington Terrace caregivers, headed by her beloved Doctor John Stickney, in suspense for nearly five weeks.

On August 6, just in time for supper, she decided she was ready to go home, where her husband, Bob, has been waiting since 2008 (he’s been used to waiting for her). By now, she will have been reunited with her Mom and Dad, her sister, Bunny, her son-in-law, Joe Pearson, a huge extended family and many dear friends.

And in God’s good time, she will welcome her three children, Linda, Bob and Jim, her daughter-in-law, Jane, who held her hand and spoke words of love to her as she left, her grandkids Matthew (Jessica), Tim (Sheri), Stacey (Andrew) , Heather (Luke), Andrew and Ally, and her great grandkids Erin, Jack, Brayden, Macy, Grace, Cameron, Rachel, William and Corinne.

Every one of us who was blessed to have had this wonderful little imp in our lives is grateful. And though we’re feeling the sting of separation, we know she’s where she has always wanted to go. We just hope somebody had the foresight to warn Saint Peter.

We where sorry to hear of Mary's passing. We have enjoyed Mary over the years. Mary was a faithful lovable fan of the "It is What It Is " Band on Saturday mornings at The Terrace..You could be sure Mary would be there. She will be missed by many. Jim and Vi and the "It is What It is " Band members.

Myself and my golden doodle Luna had the privilege and gift of getting to know Mary at Wellington Terrace. Luna started her Therapy Dog "career" at The Terrace and she instantly bonded with Mary.
I was so deeply saddened to learn of her passing . I loved that sweet little lady . When we would visit her, even if Mary was napping, Luna would peak in to her room, Mary's eyes would open and the twinkle in her eyes would get Luna's tail wagging! The mutual joy that she, Luna & I shared on our visits was immeasurable she was giddy with happiness to see Luna, who always so joyfully snuggled up to Mary, placing her head gently on Mary’s lap or curling at her feet on the floor. Mary would softly pat Luna & she would tell us stories of her life and her beloved husband and family. Mary always enthusiastically engaged in stories of Luna’s and my adventures. Honestly, I broke into tears when I heard she was no longer with us. During this Pandemic I feared I may not see her again. She was such a sociable person and thrived on human/animal connections, that have sadly, been so absent from our lives these past months. May the grace of her spirit and love of life always guide you.
My heart & Luna’s💕go out to all of you.
Take good care
😊💕 Mary Grigsby-Lehmann & Luna🐕❤️

Dear Bob, Jane and Family
Please accept our heartfelt condolences in the passing of Mary. May your memories bring you peace and sustain you during these difficult days. Also the knowledge of knowing she is now at home with her heavenly Father and reunited with those she loved who have gone before her.
God bless and may the peace of Christ be with you all, Sandy and Alvin Giles

I work at the Wellington Terrace and I had the honor to take care of Mary.
Mary was a lovely and happy lady, she was the one who made my day every time I needed a smile. Mary and I used to dance and sing " has anybody seen my gal" while I was doing her cares before at the end of the day.
I will miss her dearly.
