Kate Schober has been providing care and support for George and Mary for many years.
Kate advised me this morning that Mary passed away peacefully in her sleep overnight. Mary celebrated her 95th birthday 5 weeks ago.
Her son, Chris Maltby, will be making funeral arrangements in coming days and will communicate them either directly or through Kate and I will pass them on to our membership. COVID restrictions will probably hamper attendance but most funeral directors provide for online attendance or video streaming of the service.
Mary has been in poor health for the past 4 years and she is now at peace.
George and Mary were such a great couple. They supported each other in every facet of their lives and it must have been a huge loss for her when George passed.
May she rest in peace.
DATE: Friday 28th August
WHERE: South Chapel
Botany Cemetery (same one as for George’s funeral service)
12 Military Road, Matraville NSW
After the service, a celebration of Mary’s life will be held at George and Mary’s home with light refreshments being served.:
I had a number of dealings with George at Wagga and, of course, met Mary.
They were a lovely couple who took time to engage with all the OTC staff, and believe in her own right she was very engaged with her own community.
Lots of good memories of them both and a sad day for the OTC family.
Sincere condolences to Chris and the rest of Mary’s family
