The Canadian print industry veteran and trailblazer passed away on July 5, 2019, at 80 years of age. For more than 40 years, she was a champion of the industry as well as an inspirational leader, role model, mentor and friend to many.
“People who haven’t seen each other for a long time got reunited through Mary’s spirit,” says Martin Habekost of Ryerson University, adding that Mary’s daughters thanked everyone for coming to the event and how Mary is still a force in the industry even after her passing away.
During the event, the GCM boardroom was renamed to the Mary Black boardroom in her honour.
“Without Mary, the Heidelberg Centre would not be there and GCM would not have its own building,” Habekost explains.
