Mary Teresa Dashney (Hanniman)

September 1, 1948 - September 28, 2020


Mary Teresa Dashney (Hanniman)
1948 – 2020

Mary passed peacefully on September 28, 2020 in the loving care of her family and the team at Greenwoods Eldercare on Salt Spring Island, B.C. Born September 1, 1948 to Lorne and Teresa Hanniman (Kelly) of Shamrock, Ontario, sister of Martin (Cindy), Gerald (Annette), Katherine (Alan Blimkie) and Gordon (Kelly) Hanniman. Mother to Christopher and Jenna (Maxim Ridorossi) Dashney. Beloved wife of Ronald Miville for 26 years. She is predeceased by her parents and her brothers Michael (Audrey) and Daniel (Julie). Mary is survived by her husband Ron, her children, her many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews and her former spouse, Ralph Dashney (Linda Clifford).

Mary began her career in the Automotive Industry through accounting. She earned her CGA degree and worked her way to becoming GM and the first female Dealer Principal with Chrysler and then Nissan in Ottawa. Mary had a reputation for being tough but fair and always claimed her seat at the table. Mary loved to travel and visited Europe, Japan and her favourite, Hawaii. On one of her trips she fell in love with the West Coast. Mary and Ron left Ottawa in 1998, and lived for a year on Pender before choosing Salt Spring Island as their home. Winters were often spent in Palm Springs with good friends and many long summer days were enjoyed on their sailboat, always with their dear dogs along for the adventure.

Her family is forever grateful for the loving and attentive care she received from the staff at Greenwoods and the support from Salt Spring Hospice Society that helped us through this difficult time.

A celebration of Mary’s life will be held in the spring of 2021 at her home in the gardens that she loved. An interment will be held next spring at the Holy Well Cemetery in Mt. St. Patrick, Ontario. 
As an expression of sympathy the family asks for donations to Greenwoods Eldercare Society or the Parkinson’s Society of BC in lieu of flowers.
