Mary T. Canfield (57) of 869 8th Ave NE, Largo, FL died Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013 at her home.

Born in Hornell, NY, she was the daughter of Anthony & Phyllis (Altieri) Parlave, and was a graduate of Hornell High School and received her R.N. from the Saint James School of Nursing.

Mary moved to Florida in 1988 living in Jacksonville, Orlando and Largo. She was employed at West Bay Surgery Center as a Registered Nurse and volunteering at the Food Bank until over taken by her illness. She had hoped to be part of a helicopter rescue team but derived the most satisfaction from helping and working with others in the medical field.

With many interests, Mary had a great love of flowers, enjoyed watching and attending baseball and football games as well as long rides in the countryside and quiet walks along the water's edge or through the park.
Mary was a great home maker and she loved her family and many friends. She enjoyed children, and had a special bond with her Great Nephew Spencer Lucas.

Most of all, Mary was a caring and loving wife as well as a partner in life to her husband, who will always love and remember her dearly.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents as well as her brother Anthony Parlave and sister Linda Caruso.
She is survived by her husband Don Canfield of Largo, FL, as well as her sisters Rosalie Lucas of Largo, FL, Phyllis Conway-Giglio of Hornell, NY, and Gloria Cone of Hornell, NY.
A Christian service will be conducted by Father Dermot Dunne of St Cecelia's Church in Clearwater on Dec. 18, at 7:00pm at 13401 Indian Rocks Rd, Largo, FL 33774 (727-562-2080) for those wishing to attend.
