Mary Walsh

A Place to Remember 


Mary Walsh works at Alumni Affairs at the University of Guelph, and being on campus allows her to visit her father’s dedication in the Memorial Grove on a regular basis. Having this place to talk to her father and reflect on her memories of him has encouraged her to speak to others about memorializing their loved ones in this way, so that they too can feel the peace and serenity the Arboretum brings.
