It is with deep sadness to share the passing of our Sister Mary Bloomfield. Mary was a dedicated Union member working as a Mental Health nurse for almost three decades. She was a compassionate, kind soul who impacted everyone who came across her path. Mary has always gone above and beyond the call of duty and has mentored many members throughout her career with her expertise and knowledge being a true asset.
Mary has been a labour activist with OPSEU Local 331 for many years. She was a picket captain during our strikes, attended and actively participated in OPSEU rallies, co-facilitated at Regional Educationals, was on the executive team for several years, the Co-chair of Joint Heath and Safety Committee and was a staple on the Pay Equity committee.
Mary was a selfless, caring, and fierce advocate for her family, friends, members, and strangers. She brightened the room with her kindness, caring nature and was loved by so many.
During this time, we offer deepest condolences to her family, friends and colleagues. Mary will truly be missed by all.
A funeral service will take place at Lakeland Funeral Centre on July 13, 2023 at 11:00 AM followed by a reception and private burial at Little Britain Christian Cemetery.
