May 27, 1916 – April 3, 2012
Mary passed away suddenly and peacefully surrounded by her daughters, Della Henderson (John) and Judi Morier (Pierre), and her wonderful friends at KinVillage. Mary was predeceased by her husband Albert, son Darrol and her siblings, Anne, Michael, William and Della.
Mary was born in Fairlight, Saskatchewan and spent her early years filled with music and sports in Plumas, Manitoba. She married in Esquimalt where she and Ab started their family at Naden.
Mary was a very active mother, involved with her children in music, dance and swimming. She became an Area Commissioner in Girl Guides, organizing years of camps at the Sooke Potholes. Mary also worked in the Bay's china department.
Ab and Mary were avid ballroom dancers in Victoria and entertained a wide circle of friends at their home on Shawnigan Lake. They spent their winters in Hawaii.
Mary will be missed by her friends and family for her sharp wit, great sense of humour and boundless energy. Mary's sparkling presence and piano skills endeared her to her Tsawwassen friends where she lived after Ab passed away. Everyone remembers her closet of amazing clothes and megawatt smile.
At nearly 96, Mary was still a strong advocate for the current garden redesigning at Kin Court. She spent many hours fulfilling her passion for gardening. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to: Kin Village Association (for the garden fund), 5410 – 10th Avenue, Delta, BC, V4M 3Y9.
By request, no service will be held.
