It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Mary “Suze” Hallahan (nee Abbotts), on Friday, September 15, 2023 at Errinrung Long Term Care in Thornbury in her 99th year.
Born in Thornbury on March 12, 1925, she was a daughter of the late Joseph Abbotts and Isabelle Abbotts (nee Nixon).
Mary was predeceased by her husband, Joseph “Joe” Hallahan.
She was also predeceased by her siblings Clara Lackie, Russell, Clifford “Jake”, Alfred “Ted”, Harold “Skin”, Ken, Helyn McColman, Bessie Luker and Florence Tyndale. She will be missed by many nieces and nephews and their families.
Mary was raised in Thornbury, later leaving to spend many years in Barrie with husband Joe, where she was a well-known employee of the IGA. She and Joe enjoyed summer days on their houseboat. Mary was an avid walker and could be regularly seen around Thornbury on her return to her hometown many years ago. She was a WWII Veteran, for which she received the War Medal 1939-45. The family would like to thank Dr Naomi Klages and the staff at Errinrung for their care of Mary.
There will be no visitation or service at Mary’s request.
