Mary Ross LINK

It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Mary Ross Link on November 9, 2011. Mary was born on October 15, 1920 near Innisfail, Alberta to Thomas Archibald Ross and Elsie Cook Ross. She was the youngest daughter in a family of nine. As a young woman she worked at the Burns Meat plant in Calgary and later moved to Vancouver, BC where she met and married a transplanted prairie boy, her husband, David Link. Mary was a respectful and quiet private person whose greatest qualities were shown by her devotion and support of her immediate and extended family. She enjoyed her involvement with the Order of the Eastern Star and modelled her life around its principles of living life based on the virtues of fidelity, constancy, loyalty, faith, love and charity. She had a close relationship with her only sister, Evelyn Ross Whitelock and kept correspondence and provided love and encouragement to her seven brothers and their families. Left to mourn is her step-daughter, Ginger Reimer of Ferndale, WA, (Steven, Jim, and Julie and families); her brother, Thomas Carey Ross, of Vernon, BC and many beloved nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews. We will miss Mary’s quiet, calm demeanor and her strikingly beautiful, clear, bright blue “Ross” eyes. Mary was predeceased by her husband, David Link, and seven siblings: Evelyn Ross Whitelock, Perry, Don, Gordon, Irvyn, Harry and Eugene Ross. A memorial tea will be held in celebration of Mary’s life on Sunday, November 27th from 2-4pm at #34-8881 Walters Street, Chilliwack, the home of her nephew, James Ross. Interment of cremains will be in the family plot at the Chilliwack Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to donate in Mary’s memory may do so to the BC MS Society.
