Obituary of Mary Aurelie Labonte

Mary passed away peacefully at her home with her loving husband by her side on March 29th, 2020 at the age of 79. She will be deeply missed by her husband Leonard "Len" Labonte. Cherished mother of Kim and Brad (Veronica) Silverthorn. Loving grandmother of Jake, Amanda (Sean), Natalie, Eryn (Josh), Alyana and great-grandson Rowan. Predeceased by her parents Adam and Mary (nee Murphy) Tolmie. She is survived by her sister Patricia Harnden. Mary will be fondly remembered by her nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends. A special thank you to Father Rod McNeil who had taken the time to check on Mary and Len and who continues to offer support to Len. We would also like to thank Dr. Boudewijn "Bob" Van Noppen for all of his care and warmth - your compassion with Mary was greatly appreciated. Due to the current restrictions, the service will be held privately.  If desired, memorial donations may be made to a charity very close to Mary's heart, The Covenant House.  


Miss Me But Let Me Go


When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

I want no rites in a gloom-filled room

Why cry for a soul set free?


Miss me a little-but not too long

And not with your head bowed low

Remember the love that we once shared

Miss me-but let me go


For this is a journey that we all must take

And each must go alone.

It's all part of the Master's plan

A step on the road to home


When you are lonely and sick of heart

Go to the friends we know

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds

Miss me but let me go.
