Mallorie had many interests, one being history. She organized two different celebrations both of which took place in the summer of 2005. One celebration was for the Land Titles 100th Anniversary and the other was in honour of the unveiling of the cairn for the Sinclairville School. Mallorie was also on The Beautiful Plains Story history book committee from 2006-2008. Mallorie loved photography, gardening, needlepoint, travelling and spending time with friends and family. The family have many fond memories of their years on the farm where they enjoyed skating on the dugout, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, quadding, biking, hiking and so much more.
