Mary Lillian GRIMSHAW

Mary Lillian Grimshaw, nee Murray, passed away peacefully May 20, 2005. Mary was born September 29, 1915, youngest daughter of David and Mary Murray, the first settlers to homestead the Lauderdale District of Castor, Alta.

Mary was a precious mother, wife, grandmother, and friend. She leaves us with wonderful memories of pioneering stories, time spent with her amongst her flower beds and on hiking trails along the Vedder River and surrounding mountains. She adored her five handsome grandsons, Bradley, Colin and Ian Verschuur, and Brian and Phillip Grimshaw. Mary was such a special person, so unselfish and full of kindness.

Mom leaves behind her dear husband, Clifford; son Michael; daughter Elizabeth; and son-in-law John.

Mary will be returned to the farm in Castor she loved so much.
