Mary Louise Procter (née Cameron)
Mary Louise (née Cameron) Procter passed away Jan. 19, 2017.
She was the beloved wife of Ross Procter, Brussels and loving mother of Cam (Laurie), Louise (Tony), Don (MJ), Christopher and Anne. Mary Louise is survived by her 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents Rachel (Rogers) and Ewart (Tex) Cameron.
Mary Louise was born and raised in Walkerton. She graduated from MacDonald Hall at the University of Guelph. She obtained her Registered Nurse’s training at Guelph General Hospital. Nursing was Mary’s life-long passion. Guelph was a fertile, healthy zone where she met Ross on a blind date. Their loving partnership was a never-ending trip. Mary and Ross planted deep roots in Burlington.
She continued nursing at Hamilton Henderson Hospital in the obstetrical department. Nature took its course as their children grew. Mary was heavily involved with the Burlington Girl Guides as District Commissioner, again nursing many children at guide camps.
After 16 busy years of city life, Mary and Ross moved. Mary packed, moved house and crew to the countryside of Huron County.
Naturally their boisterous crew matured under Mary Louise’s supreme organizational skills and drives of fresh air. During this time, Mary Louise returned to her passion of nursing at the Wingham and District Hospital.
As usual, Mary excelled with the Girl Guides Huron County, was co-president of the Wingham and District Hospital Auxiliary and a member of the Eastern Star Lodge. She worked tirelessly with the Huron County Children’s Aid and Ontario Housing committees.
Mary’s family was of the utmost importance and she was well aware of her children’s activities and their location at all times without the use of a GPS tracking device.
Funeral arrangements are with the McBurney Funeral Home Ltd., Wingham. Donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
