So sorry for your loss. Mavis and I were classmates in grade school at SS#9 and at high school. Mavis was a great life long friend. Until a year ago June, we enjoyed our friendship skating together. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Ed and Family:
My deepest condolences on the passing of Mavis. I so appreciated the many years she would leave a birthday card and a flower in my mail box from her gardens.
Rest in paradise Mavis.

Mavis - My Dearest Friend,

Where do I begin. We met about 50 years ago watching our sons playing Little League baseball. From there we became very close friends.

I will miss you, especially our weekly tours of our gardens. Luncheon outings would sometimes end visiting a flower centre. At some point in just about every conversation talk would turn to our children. You were proud of every one of them and the lives they have created for themselves.

We were part of each others support systems, you were always just a phone call away. Whether walking 4 to 5 miles every day as part of my breast cancer recovery or providing a shoulder to cry on during Ken's illness and passing you were there.

I'm sure you had good and bad days during the last year and a half of your life but you didn't just put on a brave face, you maintained a positive outlook.

I'll miss you. My condolences to Ed and family,
Anne Cripps

I will truly miss our periodic get togethers , more often than not in the screened in patio, drinking wine and talking. I will also miss going over on Halloween in my costume, after all the little ones had gone on their way , and trick or treating for a glass of wine. We had a lot of fun. She was an incredible person who's energy was never-ending it seemed. She was lovely inside and out and loved talking about all of her family. Mavis was a terrific neighbor and she will be missed by so very many of us.

Our sincere condolences to Ed and all of her family.
Sam and Sharon Cornett
