December 19, 2020
It is with great sadness to announce our Mom, Mary, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2020.
Mom was born in Brandon, Manitoba and moved to Richmond , B.C. in 1940 with her parents Harry, Tillie and sister Jean.
Mary and Albert met while playing for a junior orchestra where she played 1st mandolin. She continued to play through the years.
In 1985, soon to start retirement, they moved to South Surrey. Mom’s many passions included gardening, baking, cooking, knitting, music, dancing and sports (lacrosse, Canucks and Blue-Jays), but her greatest passion of all was her family.
Active in the community, she was a member of B.C. Historical Foundation, White Rock Lawn Bowling Club and Kent Street Activity Centre. In the 1970s, Mary and Al’s love of travel began, with their favourites Hawaii, Barbados and Cruising.
Mary was predeceased by Albert (husband), Linda (daughter), Robert and Franklin (son-in-laws). Lovingly remembered by children- Claudia, Patricia (Barry), Michael (Lorrie), grandchildren- Stephanie, Joshua (Luisa), Chelsea (Ben) and great-grandchildren- Dominic , Rylan.
Mom, forever in our hearts
