CARON (Klassen); Mary
July 3, 1932 – June 12, 2016
Our beloved Mary passed peacefully, surrounded by
family, at the age of 83. She referred to nearly everyone she met as “one of her babies”, and never let anyone leave her home without a bite to eat, or a jar of jam. She poured love into everything she did – especially her garden. Mary was one of 14 children, raised a family of 7, and spent 32 glorious years with her sweetie Jerry. After 7 years apart, they are together again. Mary is survived by her siblings Anne (Harry), Ike, Les (Carol), Willie, Lyle, Mert (Cheryl), Gary (Lorraine), Buzz (Brenda), Len (Lynn), Rich (Linda), and sister in law Shirley; her daughters Corinne (Tom) and Laura (Dow), and her sons Dave (Joceline), Guy, Evan (Cheryl), and Edward (Danielle). Mary also leaves behind numerous grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and an enormous amount of others that love and admire her. Predeceased by her brothers Neil & Deed; sister Sid; sister-in-laws Jean, Dorothy, & Em; son Alan; and 3 grandbabies. Our family wishes to thank Dr. Bos and Loraine (RN) at MMH; Dr. Byrne, Dr. Jeffries, the nurses on Baker 3, and the incredible care team in the ICU at ARHCC; and Dr. Paton, Dr. Perold, & staff at WRMA for providing Mary with the utmost level of care. The Service will be at 2:00 pm on Saturday June 18 at Henderson’s Funeral Home: 20786 Fraser Highway, Langley, BC; with a public viewing at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local food bank.
