May 14, 1927 – Oct. 28, 2016

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Mary was born and raised on a small farm in Southern Saskatchewan. Mary met her husband, John, while working as a nurse’s aide in the Wakaw hospital. After five children and two moves, Mary and John settled in Red deer. Mary was married 40 years to her husband John when he passed away. Mary’s joy came from watching her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow. Mary will be sadly missed by her children, Pat (Bernie), John, Jim, Ken (Susan) and Kathy (Darryl); grandchildren, Curtis (Shantel), Michael (Sarah), Ryan (Holly), Lucas, Karson, Samuel and Zachary; Great-grandchildren, Kylie, Brock, Wyatt and Weston; as well as numerous family and friends that Mary touched along the way. A service will be held in Red Deer at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 5508 48a Ave on Saturday, Nov 5, 2016 at 11am.
