Obituary for Mary Lou Carr (Hayes)

Mary Lou  Carr (Hayes)
CARR, MARY LOU L. (HAYES) – The death of Mrs. Mary Lou L. Carr of Mississauga, ON, beloved wife of Sherman Carr, occurred on Saturday May 9, 2020 at the Village of Erin Meadows LTC Residence in Mississauga. Born in St. John, NB on December 29, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Edna Margaret Hayes (Amero) and the late (William) Harold Hayes. Mary Lou was a graduate of Mount Carmel Academy of St. John, NB (1954) and shortly thereafter moved to Toronto, ON to work for C.P.R. as Biller and Advisor for eight years. After marrying Sherman in the summer of 1962, they moved to Mississauga where Mary Lou held a variety of bookkeeping and administrative positions at organizations such as: E.J. Stockfish JP, Coulter Electronics, Arndt-Palmer International, Nice-Pak Products, Peel Region, Thibodeau Finch, and Garland Commercial Ranges. Mary Lou loved a competitive game of Auction 45, Euchre or Poker; enjoyed dancing, knitting, baking; would go to the horse races any and every time she was asked; was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan; needed to pet any dog that ventured near; had the best penmanship on the planet. Above all else, Mary Lou was fiercely loyal, protective, and supportive of her family and close friends and would make any sacrifice to ensure they prospered. Mary Lou is survived by husband of 58 years, Sherman, son, Michael, daughter, Elizabeth (Jim), grandsons Bradley of Milton and Ryan of Brantford, daughter-in-law Allison of Brantford, and many cousins, nieces, nephews in both Canada and the United States. Besides her parents, she is pre-deceased by brother, Melvin Amero, and sisters M. Irene Hulme (Amero), Arlene M. Nolan (Amero), and Theresa Belanger. The family would like to acknowledge the incredible professionalism and dedication of the Erin Meadows LTC staff and support workers; particularly those in Howland Neighbourhood where Mary Lou was a resident for the past 22 months. Resting at Skinner & Middlebrook Funeral Home, 128 Lakeshore Road E, Mississauga, ON, L5G 1E4, there will be a private family memorial on May 15, 2020 with a celebration of life to be held at a later date. By request, there will be no visitation. Remembrances to Trillium Health Partners, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the William Schlegel Hope Fund Pandemic Relief, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
