It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Mary Marlene Graham (Radcliffe) of Owen Sound at the age of 83. Peacefully with family by her side on March 7, 2020 at Lee Manor in Owen Sound. Mary was born in Wiarton, Ontario on July 14th, 1936 and lived most of her life in Owen Sound. She married the love of her life, Douglas Evans Graham on April Fool’s Day, 1961 and they enjoyed 45 years together until he passed in 2007. She will be greatly missed by her two children, Ian Douglas Graham and Mary Lynn Trask (Graham) and her husband Paul William Trask and sister-in-law Linda Radcliffe. Predeceased by her father Harry V. Radcliffe and mother Doreen Margaret Radcliffe (Buckland) of Owen Sound. Mary was the youngest of three children and predeceased by her siblings, Douglas V. Radcliffe and Joan Doreen Rimmer (Radcliffe). Cherished by her grandchildren, Sean Douglas Graham, Sarah Lynn Trask, and Evan Paul Trask, two great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Mary was a kind, generous and hardworking person with sparkling blue eyes, who dearly loved her family, friends, her cottage and many special pets. A special thank you to Dr. Van Zyl and to the staff at Lee Manor for the past years of compassionate care given to Mary.
