Mary Catherine Walsh Reid, 73, passed away September 15, 2013, at her home in Central Point, Ore. Mary was born May 8, 1940, to Timothy and Catherine Walsh and spent her earliest years in the south side of Chicago, developing many friendships that still exist today.
After marrying Robert Reid, they moved to Oregon with their daughter, Kelly. She was employed for many years at Providence Hospital, serving in the capacities of Medical Staff Coordination and Rehab until her retirement. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed both knitting and quilting, giving away many of her creations to friends and those in need. When not reading her Nook, she enjoyed throwing the ball for Jade, exercising at the Cardiac Gym at RVMC, and was just beginning to branch out into Zumba.
She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant son. The family acknowledges the many years of care given to her by Dr. Traul and Dr. Shonerd. At her request, no service will be held although memorials are planned in the future in both Chicago and Ireland. Contributions may be made to either the Southern Oregon Humane Society or St. Jude Children's Hospital.
