Monica Ann Mara (Bray), December 30, 1939 to July 22, 2019


It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Mother, Nana, Great Nana; Monica Ann Mara (Bray) at Bluewater Health Palliative Care Unit on July 22, 2019.  Beloved Wife of the late Jerry William Mara (1998).  Monica leaves behind her 7 boys; John (Cindy), Alan (Teri), Bill (Cheryl), Jerry Jr, David (Lucy), Jim (Laura), Mike (Jenn) along with her 17 grandchildren; Floyd (Jessica), Stephanie, Katie (Dustin), AJ , Morgan, Karly, Devin, Joslyn, Cody, TJ (Jessica), Mackenzie, Marissa, Cassandra, Jordan, Jaymie, Noah and Tayler, plus 5 great grandchildren; Zach, Brodey, Hayden, Claire and Lyla.  She is survived by her brother Owen (Theresa), brother in law Peter (Linda), sisters in law, Nancy (Bob), Julie as well as many nieces and nephews.  Monica worked as a cook at the local 914, Point Edward Community Hall and the Huron Boys Home.  She also enjoyed her time as "the Point Edward crossing guard".  Point Edward was always home to Monica, where her and Jerry raised their boys and was a big contributor to Point Edward Minor Hockey.  Monica loved being with her boys and her daughters in law, but most of all she love being Nana and Great Nana.  Monica was a tough woman, who put up a great fight right until the end.   Resting at the D.
