She is survived by her beloved husband of 70 years Fred, daughter Janine (Jim) Chambers, sons Ron (Susan) and Ken (Arlene), all of Kamloops, and son Jim (Joan) of West Vancouver, 9 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Mary was born on the farm 7 miles south of Revelstoke. She spent her formative years there until she married Fred in 1939 at which time they settled in Revelstoke. In 1997 Mary and Fred relocated to Kamloops to be close to their family. Her life was a wonderful

Ukrainian cooking and pies.
