 Mary Platt 1950 – 2018 — A Ball hockey Legend

 

Hello to our ball hockey community,

It is with great sadness that i announce the passing of my mother Mary Platt.

After a very brief but courageous battle with stomach cancer, she was taken off life support on Friday Jan 12th with her family by her side,  She was diagnosed with late stage, aggressive stomach cancer on December 22nd .We entered the hospital on Tuesday Jan 9th for our first visit with the cancer centre, to discuss treatment plans moving forward, things took a dramatic turn very quickly and we did not leave the hospital, Our family is very devastated, she was a very special person,

Our ballhockey community is small but strong. My parents were inducted into the OBHA Hall of Fame in 2010 as Builders of the Sport, something they were very proud of and was well deserved, and well over due.

They started the Oshawa Minor Ball Hockey Association 35 years ago.  With just a few kids of various ages, in a small community gym.  Today the league has had thousands of boys, girls, men and women, referees and coaches pass thru and continue on.  What started with just a few teams with colored t-shirts is now a league taking over multiple arenas during the seasons in Oshawa and other towns and cities throughout Ontario for Provincials competition.

My Mom’s focus the past few years was on the girls and women’s teams.  Helping girls of all ages have fun, and provide opportunities,  to compete in Provincial, National and International competitions,

The ball hockey community has lost a valuable member, but her legacy will live on.  As the upcoming ballhockey season is about to approach, there will be one valuable volunteer, convenor and  executive missing, but she will be looking down from above cheering everyone on.

Thank you
Chevy Platt
