August 18, 1929 - February 16, 2013
Mary was loved by all who knew her. She was unique in many ways, not the least of which, she was one of the few people in Calgary to be born and raised here. Memories of Mary will be forever cherished by her husband of sixty-five years, Bob; by her daughter Linda Cairns (Brock) and their children, Cade and Paige; by daughter, Sharilyn and companion, Bob; by daughter Bonnie Germain (George); and by her son Reid (Kim) and their children, Nia and Liam; sister Margaret Michalko (Al); brother Hank; and many nieces and nephews. Mary was a member of Beta Sigma Phi for forty-nine years where she made a lifetime of friends. She introduced her three daughters to Beta Sigma Phi, where they, too, cultivated many lasting friendships. The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to: June and the staff of Alberta Home Care for their efficiency and caring attitude; the staff at the Sarcee Hospice for their compassion and support; Dr. Angela MacArthur and Donna for their many years of care and friendship; and to Dr. Howarth, Maria, and the staff of the Cardiac Function Clinic at the Foothills Hospital. A celebration of Mary's life will be held on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. in the Chapel at Eden Brook Funeral Home (corner of 17 Avenue SW and Lower Springbank Road). Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.edenbrookcemetery.ca. Arrangements entrusted to Eden Brook Funeral Home 24223 Township Road 242, Calgary AB T3Z 3K2.
