It is with great affection I remember Sr Mary. I did my placement with her at Calvary Hospital whilst studying CPE in the 1990s I valued her Wisdom, Gentleness, and great support over many years. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend Sr Mary's Funeral Mass, as travelling. With gratitude for a true example of what Pastoral and Spiritual Care is meant to be . God Bless you Mary, and my thoughts are with the Calvary Community whom she walked with for so many years. Blessings Jane Marshall

I worked with her at Calvary Hospital and thought very highly of her. She was a joy to talk to and had a very kind gentle manner about her. I kept in touch with her each Christmas for many years and valued her friendship and kindness. Treasured memories.

Our deepest condolences to Sr Mary’s family. Sr. Mary always had a kind heart and sweet smile. She would visit me whenever I would have treatment at Calvary and always assured me of her prayers for me and my little baby. She gave us strength and reminded us to have faith in God. Rest In Peace, Sr Mary and we are with you in prayer.

Condolences to the extended Glowrey family and sisters of Little Company of Mary. Sr Mary was a wonderful supporter of the legacy of her aunt, the medical missionary Dr Sr Mary Glowrey JMJ, her Cause for canonisation and the work to share her story. Meeting Sr Mary and sharing many conversations by phone was a privilege. I will miss her wise counsel, insight and wit, as well as her prayerful witness to faith and care. Prayers for her repose, and for all who loved her from all of us at the Mary Glowrey Museum in Melbourne.
