Mary Louise Follett (nee Golden)


Mary Louise Follett (nee Golden)


Passed peacefully away at Glenbrook Lodge in St. John’s, Newfoundland on Saturday, May 4, 2019, Mary (Minnie) Louise Follett (nee Golden) in her ninetieth year. Predeceased by her devoted husband of 48 years, Eli Garfield Follett, parents Mary and George Golden of Whiteway, sister Rita Veley (brother-in-law Len), brother Maxwell Golden and infant sister Velma Golden. 
Mary leaves on this earth who will be comforted with many warm and loving memories, her daughters Janette Loveless (granddaughter Janell and husband Mark, great granddaughters Victoria and Lily) and Linda Ryan (son-in-law Majella), brother William Golden, sister Eleanor Wells, sister-in-law Eva Eddy, and her beloved nieces Eva (Ed), Brenda (Ron), Donna (Bob), Joyce (Lloyd), Sharon, Deanne, Debbie (Bob), Christine, Eileen, Charlene, Wilma; nephews Clarence, Wayne, Fred, Roy and their families, as well as a valued circle of relatives and cherished friends near and far. She will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered always.
With heartfelt thanks to the caring and supportive staff at Meadow Creek Retirement Centre in Paradise where Mary called home for the past eight years (she loved it there and the wonderful people who became family to us); and to the staff at St. Clare's Mercy Hospital (6th Floor West) and Glenbrook Lodge where she recently spent her last days. 

Family and friends are invited to Maher's Funeral Home, Placentia where Mary will be resting on Monday, May 6, 2019 (2 PM - 5PM), followed by a funeral service at Grace United Church, Dunville on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 (2:30 PM).  Donations are gratefully accepted in Mary's memory to the Canadian Cancer Society - Newfoundland and Labrador (Daffodil Place).  
A beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and forever friend, she will never be forgotten and loved for all eternity.  "What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose.  All that we love deeply becomes part of us." -Helen Keller 
I Wish You Enough
I wish you enough to keep your attitude bright, 
no matter how grey the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive 
and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest joys 
in life appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through 
the final good-bye.
