It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mary J. Brettell. Mary was born on April 1, 1931 in Lancashire England and came to Canada with her husband Tom and 3 sons Martin, Paul and Mark. After a few years in Vancouver the family moved to Toronto where another son, Andrew was born.
The family moved back to Vancouver to the west coast where her husband and eldest Martin unfortunately pre deceased her in the early 1970’s. She lived for many of the past 35 years in the Langley and White Rock area. She loved to travel, read and at various times was an enthusiastic member of the Coronation street club.
In her last years she suffered from Parkinsons and was cared for at Morgan Place. We thank all of her care givers and the staff of Morgan for their understanding and support. She is survived by her sons Paul, Mark, and Andrew, and brothers Terry and Stephen, and sister Kathleen. Wishing her final peace in God’s hands.
A mass will be performed in her memory at Star of Sea Catholic Church in White Rock on August 13th at 11 am. All who knew Mary are welcome to the Mass.
