Mary Sue Boldt of Chilliwack, B.C. passed away peacefully Tuesday, July 3, 2012 at Chilliwack General Hospital after a short fight against cancer.
Born in Nakomas Saskatchewan, April 23,1937 to David and Helen Reger.
She is survived by her daughter Sandy (Don) and her son Terry (Vanessa), grandchildren Darcy, Tarra, Colby and Tyler, as well as her great grandchildren Devin and Amber. Also survived by sister Helen (Ron) and brothers John (Helen), Hank (Edith), and Corny (Willeen). She was predeceased by her husband Peter and brother Bill.
Mary’s family moved from Nakomas, Saskatchewan to Drake, Saskatchewan to a fruit farm in Yarrow B.C., where she met and married the love of her life, Peter Boldt. She raised two children and developed her love for flowers while working at Country Gardens. Afterwards, she spent time at Eaton’s as a sales clerk. Radium Hot Springs definitely benefited when Pete and Mary bought a corner grocery store and became an integral part of the community for 15 years. Mary moved to Salmon Arm and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the Shuswap. Peter passed away while they resided in Salmon Arm. Mary spent her final years in Chilliwack where she developed many special friends all of which she cherished. Mary always embraced life with her sense of humour and no nonsense ways. Family was her priority and she cared for and loved us all. She brought a smile and had a story for everyone. Mary was a master at stained glass, a painter and an avid gardener. Her seat at the table will never be filled and we’ll always love our Mom, Nana and friend.
