A Thank You from Mallory Tonner's Family
Mallory's death on March 4, 2021 due to an aneurysm has left us heartbroken. Feelings of sadness and loss, especially for Tim and their two young children, Nina and Tom, continue. However, our grief has been made bearable by the kindness of friends and acquaintances who have reached out to us with beautiful notes, gentle visits, comforting words and thoughtful gifts.
Many have asked if there is a particular charity for donations in memory of Mallory. Mallory was a Speech Language Pathologist working with young children on Haida Gwaii. She loved the written and spoken word and made frequent use of libraries. So we suggest that donations in memory of Mallory be to a Library. Donations to libraries can be made through canadahelps.org, selecting a preferred library and specifying in memory of Mallory Tonner. For donations to the Masset Library on Haida Gwaii, where Mallory lived, choose Vancouver Island Regional Library and specify "for the Masset Library" in the box called "send a message to this charity".
Thank you, we are truly grateful for all the love and support our family has received.
Paul & Carol Tonner - Deep River, ON.
