Mary Harper

This book has been created in memory of Mary Harper from all of her friends and colleagues at Aviva.


Mary was a bright spark. She was an intelligent, courageous, passionate and inpirational leader who will be deeply missed by all. 


Please share your memories of Mary and allow us to celebrate the life of a great woman.


Many people have asked Mary’s family about sending flowers to show support but they have asked people to raise money for a charity Mary cared about and used to give to regularly. If you wish to make a donation, please find the link here:
