Maria JOLLYMOUR

(nee Pluzak)

March 26, 1951 – March 16, 2013

It is with profound sadness that Maria Krystyna Jollymour has left this physical world on Saturday, March 16, 2013. She was predeceased by her mother and father Krystyna and Stanley Pluzak and beloved sister and brother Anita Bangay and Richard Pluzak. She is survived by her loving husband David Jollymour, daughters Tanya Blair and husband Chris Blair, Sabrina Vandale and Joy Morrison, her sister and best friend Barbara Pluzak and husband Richard, brother Stanley Pluzak and family and brother in law Laurence Bangay and family. Her precious and treasured grandchildren, Alicia and Sean Blair, Kaiden Vandale and Brittany Morrison. Krystyna, known as “Krys”, “Krissy” or “Kryshia” by most, was a devoted, loving and catering wife, a mother that instilled value, principal and compassion in each of her children and a grandma that spoiled and valued every precious moment she shared with her grandchildren. She spent a great deal of time in Chilliwack with her daughter Tanya, grandchildren Alicia and Sean, and beloved son in law Chris. She was a kind, fun loving and youthful woman that was like a ray of sunshine in every persons’ life she came into contact with. She developed great friendships everywhere she went and held a very close space in her heart for her Chilliwack friends Daisy-Anne and Michael Simpson, Sheryl Sharpe and Barry and Lois English. She cherished family, friends and life and would be the first to jump in a cold lake, play basketball with her granchildren or want to hike to the top of a mountain.

She had a special passion for fishing and cooking, she loved knitting, gardening, her cat Smudge and dog Brandy, crafts, gardening, writing and always staying in touch with her children and grandchildren. She was the glue that held her and her husband’s family together. She enjoyed traveling to Ontario to spend time with her daughter Sabrina and grandson Kaiden and especially enjoyed her time at the cottage playing cards, drinking wine, playing with the cats and trekking through the back country with Barb and Richard. She enjoyed working with her husband doing taxes, the long drives they would take sightseeing, the warmth comfort and stability of the life they built together and just spending time together with a man she loved, admired and was grateful for. All that knew her were blessed with her radiant smile, kind and inspiring attitude and mostly her heart of gold and cheerful attitude that brightened anyone’s day who ran into her. Krys was far too young a spirit to leave this world but has left with footprints on every life she touched with her humor, spontaneity, wit, charm and love. She has left a void in lives but more importantly, memories of fond and unforgettable moments that each and every one she knew was able to share with her.

Although dearly missed she carries on in hearts, memories and spirit.

A heart of gold stopped beating today, two willing hands at rest God broke our hearts to prove to us, he takes nothing but the best. I love you mom ~ Tanya and Sabrina. I love you wife ~ Dave.
