Mary Ann MacPherson, age 65 of Stratford, passed away peacefully at University Hospital, London on March 8, 2019. Born in Embro, Mary was the daughter of the late Alexander and Alice MacPherson.
Mary is survived by her brother George and sister-in-law Nancy MacPherson (nee Diegel). She will be deeply missed by her niece Megan and nephews Gregory and Michael (Jessie) whom she treasured.
Mary was fun loving, cheerful and thoughtful. She taught Grade One at Hamlet Public School for over 30 years. She was passionate in her role as an educator, determined to build a foundation on which her students could ultimately reach their full potential. To her former students ….. please know that she cherished you, your energy and your receptive young minds. It was always immensely satisfying when she would see you in your post public school years, knowing that in some small way she had helped pave your way in life. You were a gift to her, just as she was a gift to you.
