Mary Drummond

Mary Campbell (nee Mowat). Peacefully in her 83rd year (1921) Mary passed away in the early morning of Thursday, April 1, 2004 at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, B.C.

Cherished wife of almost 59 years of Clare Drummond. Devoted mother of Jim (Edith), Doug (Cheryl), Bob (Adele) and Darlene (Mike). Proud Nana of Reid (Tonja), Derek (Tara), Kelley, Kyle, Jerilyn, Michelle and Chad. Loving great-grandmother to Caillie and truest friend and fond aunt to Jo-Ann, Lynda and Nancy.

She was an inspiration to her family and friends and will be deeply missed by all.

Mary enjoyed a rich and fulfilling long life even though she arrived into this world at only 1 1/2 lbs. Born in Fort Rouge, WInnipeg, her parents Alex and Margaret Mowat provided a Scottish background.

In Winnipeg, she attended Riverview, Lord Roberts and Kelvin High Schools. Young People’s Club became an important part of her life and it was here that she met Clare and married on July 4, 1945.

While she was in White Rock, Mary was a Lioness for over 15 years.

Our heartfelt thanks go to Dr. Connie Ruffo and the staff at Peace Arch Hospital, especially the nurses of the Palliative Care Ward.
