Mary Christine Hall
Peacefully at home on January 14, 2021 at age 72, surrounded by her loving family. Beloved wife of Glen Campbell, her devoted husband of 42 years. Proud and adoring mother of Jamie, Christopher and Callum Campbell and loving mother-in-law of Susan Tory, Renae Farough and Jessica Ash. Sister-inlaw to Valerie and Ray Clark. Daughter of the late Edwin and Edith Hall of
Georgetown, Ontario and sister of Michael, who predeceased her by only a few months. The most loving and generous grandmother to granddaughters Piper, Reese, Abigail and Harper and to her only grandson Jacob, who sadly also predeceased her. Lovingly cared for by Joel Bolos, devoted housekeeper to the family for over 25 years.
Mary's career was in law with the international firm Baker & McKenzie, where she was admitted as its first female partner in Canada - an achievement she wore humbly and rarely spoke of. Initially her practice was civil litigation but in the early 1980's she studied and embraced the emerging law related became environmental issues, a nascent practice at the time that Mary quickly excelled in.
Mary's love for travel was nourished by her law firm's annual meetings, which were held in the country of one of the firm's many offices throughout the world. While she enjoyed destinations in Asia and South America, Europe was always her favourite and Paris became her most travelled to city and Italy, her favourite country to visit.
Retired from full-time practice, Mary's greatest pleasures became her garden and the time spent with her grandchildren for whom she shopped constantly. It filled her with great satisfaction to find "just the right outfit," especially that "Christmas dress." They all loved story-time with Grandma and she never turned away from an opportunity to read to them. She made Sunday night dinners a family event and on many an occasion would experiment with a new dish she had just read about.
Mary will be greatly missed, not only by her family but the many friends she had made over the years.
Following cremation, a family graveside service will be held in the near future.
Donations can be made to The Toronto Humane Society or the Yonge Street Mission.
