In Loving Memory

Mary Catherine Hurley (Keeping)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mom Mary Catherine Hurley (Keeping) on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at Twin Town Manor, Grand Falls-Windsor, NL.  Known to so many as  Mom, Nan, Nanny, Gran Nan, Aunt Mary Kate, she will be profoundly missed by a huge circle of family and friends.  She left us as she had lived among us, with grace, humility and a heart full of love for all.  She never missed an opportunity to make you laugh or smile or to say I love you.  Mom’s life will live on in her 16 children, 67 grandchildren and 64 great-grandchildren as well as several great-great grandchildren and may we never forget we were blessed beyond measure.

Sisters: Josephine.  Brothers:  William, Peter, Alphonsus. Son-in-law Ronald Kelly.  Mom, we can imagine the reunion and how happy they will be in your loving arms.  Your work here is done.
