With great sadness we wish to announce that Mary Ann (Hačková) Doucette went to her eternal reward on November 20, 2019 in Ottawa.
A former Treasurer and three-term President of the Canadian Slovak League (2007-2016), Mary Ann successfully transformed the League from a fraternal-benefit society to a not-for-profit organization.
A native of Winnipeg, she worked most of her adult life for Revenue Canada in Ottawa.
Mary Ann was the granddaughter of Andrej Kučera, who founded the League in 1932. She is survived by her husband Ed, her son Pierre, daughter-in-law Susan, and grandson Ewan.
Eternal rest grant unto her o Lord!
M. Mark Stolarik,
President, Canadian Slovak League
