MOTTUS, Mae I give you this one thought to keep
I am with you still – I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on the snow
Mae Dossie Mottus of Leslieville passed away peacefully in the Rocky Hospital, after 2_ years of her courageous, silent battle with cancer, with her family and 3 dear friends by her side at the age of 78 years. Mae was born in Climax, Saskatchewan on September 28, 1926. Mae grew up and went to school in Markerville, Alberta. Mae trained as a nurse at Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton from 1945 -1948; then moved on to work in the Eckville, Innisfail and Rocky Hospitals. She lived in Leslieville until her death. Mae is survived by her husband of 52 years, Scotty of Leslieville; one daughter, Sandy of Leslieville; one son Allan (Karen) of Eckville; one grandson, Tanner; three granddaughters, Alexis (Brad), Brittny, and Megan; four great-grandchildren, Satcha, Cebastian, Madaline and Gabrille; one daughter-in-law Sarah; one sister, Helen (Howard) Maki of Red Deer; and three sister-in-laws, Vicky Mottus, Laura McGowan, and Adele Herbert. She was predeceased by her son Murray, parents, 2 sisters and one brother. Dossie took great pleasure in all her family, especially her grandkids and great grandkids and even though her eyesight failed in her later years she had a keen sense of who was around her at all times. She had a great love of the outdoors and took great pleasure in working amongst her flowers and in her garden. Birds, especially humming birds, were a favorite and the yard was always full of birds at the feeders year round. One of our fondness memories was of Dossie adopting a Canada Goose chick years ago and when Dossie thought “Lucy” was at the age she thought she should be learning to fly she had Lucy out on the hill behind the house and she would be running down the hill flapping her arms with Lucy running by her side. At Mae’s request there will be no funeral or service held and a private interment will follow at a later date.
