On August 5th, 2018, we lost Mary Olive Horn (Wharry), beloved wife of John Horn for over 60 years. Together, they created a loving family with their four children Kathy (Bob) Wallace, Rusty (Marj) Horn, Patty (Allan) Case, and Joan (Andy) Black. A proud grandmother to her grandchildren; Kristen (Brad), Andrew (Julie), Wendy (predeceased), Stephanie (Al), Marsha, Liz (Greg), Ben, Alana, Sammy, Laurin, and Connor, as well as an adored Great Grandmother (GG) to her ten great grandchildren. Her lasting interest in all life pursuits illustrate her constant support of her family. Her values of education, contributing to the community, and love of friendships and family above all set a great precedent for her family which we take pride in upholding. Mary would often give back to those around her through participating in the Home and School Association, various church groups, and contributing to the senior community including her involvement with the VON. When she wasn’t giving back to those in need, she could often be found shopping, traveling, baking, knitting, reading, checking in with friends and family, or scheduling her next hair appointment. While Mary and John have a circle of friends too numerous to list, their time in Exeter and London, as well as at the farm, will always hold a special place. Whether it be through lawn bowling, euchre, shuffleboard, or nickel bingo, they were never short on meaningful connections. Mary is survived by her sister, Jean Martin, and brother, Jim Wharry. Predeceased by her parents John and Olive Wharry (Laraway), and her brothers Lawrence, Lloyd, Clarence and Joe. Fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews, as well as her cousins and extended family. We would like to sincerely thank those who aided in her care.
