On August 29,
2014, beloved matriarch, sister, mentor, and friend passed away
peacefully surrounded by family. She was 93. Surviving her are son
Daniel (Barbara) of Middletown, MD; daughters Rae (Richard Skinner)
of Charlottesville, VA; and Heidi (Roger Brenholtz) of Beallsville,
MD, and grandchildren Eva, Jason, and Matthew (Alie Murphy) Rosvold;
Christopher Skinner; Ben, Mack, and Quinn Brenholtz; and great-granddaughters
Naomi Englebach and Maple Rosvold; and numerous nieces and nephews
in the U.S. and Canada. Also surviving is her sister, Teresa M.

Prairie, Alberta. Mary's cherished husband of 51 years, neuropsychologist
Haldor "Hal" Rosvold, died in 1997; brother Bernie McKinnon,
and sisters Virginia Hughes and Jean McKinnon also predeceased her.
Mary McKinnon was born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. After graduating
from the Nova Scotia Hospital School of Nursing, Mary responded
to the call for medical support for troops injured in the D-Day
invasion and enlisted as an officer in the Royal Canadian Army Medical
Corps. Stationed in England from 1944 to 1946, she nursed wounded
soldiers, danced at officer parties, began a life-long passion for
psychiatric nursing, and met her future husband. Their wartime romance
became a lifelong love. Mary pursued her nursing career while raising
their three children. She was a head nurse at Chestnut Lodge, a
renowned psychoanalytic hospital in Rockville, MD. Mary was known
as a firm but compassionate supervisor who cared deeply about her
patients, mentored staff, and enjoyed enduring friendships with
her colleagues. Mary relished travel and family vacations on the
Chesapeake Bay and in Canada. She loved the ocean's salty breeze
and crashing surf. In retirement, Mary was an active volunteer and
cared for Hal, together battling his Parkinson's disease. Mary is
remembered for her sense of humor and fun; her spirit of adventure;
her strength, independence, and wisdom; her love for children, dogs,
and books; her interest in world affairs; her pride and love for
her family; and her absolute respect for personal dignity. Family
and close friends will gather in Beallsville, MD, to celebrate Mary's
life. Donations may be made in memory of Mary Rosvold to Montgomery
