Mary Patricia Cole

May 21, 1913 - January 14, 2013

Mary Patricia Cole, 99, of Vancouver passed away peacefully on January 14. She will be sadly missed. Mary was born in Dublin, Ireland and emigrated to Canada with her husband George and 5 children, Maire, Bronach, Emer, Brendan and Colm. In the later years of her professional career she taught at St. Ann's Academy and Cariboo College in Kamloops. She retired to Vancouver so she could be near the ocean and spent many contented hours at Kits Beach and Spanish Banks and watching the sunsets from her balcony. She loved to travel and enjoyed reading, word puzzles, bridge and music. She is survived by her five children, 9 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. The family wishes to thank all those who cared for her with dignity and kindness, especially the staff at Honoria Conway House, Dr. Margaret Moss, Dr. Nancy Van Laeken, and Stella Ruffa. In lieu of flowers, donations to the St. Augustine Parish School Building Fund and ESK-OMI Missions would be appreciated. A Celebration of Her Life will be held on Saturday, February 9 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Vancouver Lawn and Tennis Club. Online condolences can be sent to
