We mourn the loss of Mary McLean, who was a long-time member of our club and a dear friend to many of our members. She was an elegant and graceful woman who epitomized the ideals of Rotary. Here is her obituary and photo as it appeared in the Edmonton Journal.

Mary McLean passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 in Burlington, Ontario, with her son by her side, at age 86 years. Mary leaves behind her son, Barton (Brenda); and three grandchildren, Carson, Cierra and Savannah. Mary was the eldest of six and leaves her sisters, Hilma and Lillia; her sister-in-law, Yvonne; as well as nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Norris; sisters, Emma and Anne; her brother, Gary; as well as her life-long best friend, Grace Allen. Mary was born in Prince George, B.C. on November 2, 1932 and moved to Edmonton in 1962. After working for Shell Canada she found her true passion in Real Estate. She was a Rotarian (Edmonton Riverview), a member of Beta Sigma Phi and active in her church, Robertson Wesley United. She touched the lives of so many and she will be missed by everyone who knew her.
