March 2, 1930 – Nov. 2, 2009
Mary was a mother, grandma, great-grandma, oma and a friend. Sadly she passed away at the age of 79 after a lengthy battle with cancer at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack, leaving behind a loving family – 5 children; Frank (Sharon), Hans (Betty), Harry (Terry), Marianne (Albert), and Linda (Gary) – grandchildren Michael (Shelley), Cherie (Greg), Kevin, Lisa (Kyle), Stephanie, Kyle, Michelle, and Jason (Corrina) – great-grandchildren; Jocelyn, Ashley, Cody, Owen and Jenna. She was predeceased by her granddaughter, Candace (1979).
We would like to thank all our friends for their continued support and prayers during this time and the caring staff at Cascade Hospice.
As per our mom’s request, she wished to be cremated and asked that there be no Memorial Service. Family will have their own private gathering.
We will miss you mom, grandma, great-grandma, oma and friend.
God looked around His garden
And found an empty space.
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw her tired face.
He put his arm around her
And lifted her to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
He knew that she was suffering
He knew she was in pain.
He knew she might never get well
Upon this earth again.
He says the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed her weary eyelids,
Whispered peace be thine.
