PORTER, Mary March 13, 1922 – November 5 2020

It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Mary Porter in her 99th year at her long-term care facility, Fairhaven, in Peterborough, ON.

Mother of Dave Porter, and daughter-in-law Sheila Porter. Grandmother to Jay Porter and Tamara (Porter) McKinnon, Jay McKinnon (spouse to Tamara) Great grandmother to Hayden and Allie. She will be missed by all who loved her.

She was a retiree from DE Haviland Aircraft and her favourite pastime was singing with the Toronto Accolades for many years. Another favourite was spending time at Porter cottage on Stoney Lake. As well as a doting Grandma (GP as the kids called her), she was thrilled to be a Great-grandmother.

A private family service will be held November 14, 2020.

This is a picture of Mary at the cottage on Stoney Lake from an unusual cool day in July 2007. We had just eaten ice cream bars from the marina. Mary was well-travelled and well-spoken and a delight to be around. She will be missed.

We are neighbors to Dave and Sheila at their cottage. We have very fond memories of Mary. She would sometimes stay at the cottage for a week while Dave and Sheila were working. She always greeted us with a warm smile and had time for a lovely chat. I remember being surprised to learn that she was an avid dancer, dancing at least once a week with her friends well into her 80s. One day, about 15 years ago, Mary joined me and my 2 children on a day trip to see the Petroglyph's Provincial Park nearby. We had a wonderful time highlighted by a First Nations gentleman spending time with us explaining what many of the petroglyphs meant. We both felt honored that he shared so many stories with us, and I felt so fortunate that Mary was able to join us for the day. We had so many great interactions with Mary over the years. She was a truly wonderful person.
