TSC Volunteer – Mary Deane

IMG_1159We would like to take this opportunity to honour extraordinary TSC Volunteer, Mary Deane, who sadly passed away on Wednesday July 15th, 2020.

If you visited the Cafe on Friday mornings or attended our lunches, Cafe events or BBQs, you’ve likely had the pleasure of meeting Mary on Volunteer duty.  Known affectionately as the “Energizer Bunny” (she keeps going, and going..), Mary has been an immense help to the Club since it’s opening over 15 years ago.  Always willing to jump in and help – whether serving hot dogs in the sweltering heat of summer, staying late to clean up after a big event or walking through a snow storm for her morning Cafe shift when she couldn’t get her car out of the driveway…she did it all with a smile.  Her positivity was contagious and her hard work and dedication unmatched.  Among so many things, we will miss her distinctive laugh and wicked sense of humour 🙂  She was a ray of sunshine on a dark day and an inspiration to us all.

Mary will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by her many friends at TSC.   A gathering at the Club will be arranged once we have safely reopened.
