Mary  Fry


Mary Fry, age 60, passed away peacefully Wednesday, April 24th, 2019, at her home on Cumberland Head in Plattsburgh, N.Y., surrounded by her family and close friends.
Mary grew up in Montreal, Canada, where she attended Bishop High School and McMaster University. Montreal is still home to some of her family and was a true love of hers where she frequently (and loudly) attended the Montreal Canadiens hockey games while enjoying a smoked meat sandwich.
Mary followed her first passion of golf to Plattsburgh with her business involvement as resident golf pro with Bluff Point Golf Resort. There she established lifelong wonderful friendships with the locals while beating most of them in the tournaments! Her second passion became real estate where she committed the past two decades to serving her community alongside her business partner and friend Sherwood Keyser.
Mary was a fervent lover of all things - her work, her friends, her family, local community and home on the lake. She always preferred to give to others before she considered receiving. Her giving became profound when she supported and created charitable organizations such as the Pelley Open, in honor of her brother-in-law, heading up the Hospice of the North Country Auction, and most recently creating the Wish Fund in partnership with CVPH, a grant that provides last wishes to adult individuals with terminal illnesses. Mary herself was able to partake of a wish to spend this past Easter weekend with family and friends in Lake Placid where she
basked in the warmth of those she loved most and laughed watching everyone play a family soccer game.
Mary is survived by her parents Robert and Julie Hunkin; her favorite person in the world and son Dan Fry, son-in-law Matthew Mommer, her sister Christina Hunkin along with her loving nieces, Julie (Andrew), Amanda, and Lindsay and her great-nephews Ben and Noah. Mary was predeceased by her beloved sister Pat and long-time companion in everything, Bob Ryan. Mary's wish for a service will be a celebration of life gathering that will take place in the coming weeks.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the CVPH Wish Fund or the Hospice of the North Country.

We will miss you Mary, but know you are in a better place. The many dinners, the hospice auction, and the Lido deck will never be the same. Thankful for an end to your suffering- rest in peace.
