After bravely fighting heart disease for many years, Mary Pawlitsky passed away on Friday, June 14, 2013 at Delta BC, at the age of 90.
Mary was born in Sclater, MB on October 22nd, 1922. She was predeceased by her parents, and her four older brothers, and a son and daughter at birth.
Mary’s husband, Leon passed away in 1998, her grandson Jared in 1989 and her son Mark in 2009.
Mom is lovingly survived by her son, Larry (Nancy), grandson Chris (Annette), great-grandson True, Chris’ mom Joanne, all of Revelstoke, granddaughter, Ryah , great-grandson Leo, of Calgary, daughter Susan ( Frank), grandsons Jeff, Scott and Justin, and great-granddaughter Talia, of Delta and Langley, daughter Shelley (Kevin) of Burnaby, and daughter-in-law Tammy and grandson Mitchell and granddaughter Erin of Port Moody. Also missing mom are a wonderful array of family and friends. Mom had a group of five ladies that visited her at her care home every Monday for the 3 years that she resided there. The family wishes to thank the staff at Northcrest Care Centre for their tender, loving care.
Mom had a very deep love for God and was comforted by her belief in the resurrection to life on paradise earth.
Our “Gran” as she was called by many, even if not related – had a wonderful sense of humour, loved hockey, going hunting with Dad, and spending time with her family. The grandchildren remember with love, her ‘granny parties’ when they were young. She would organize games, gifts and lots of fun for everyone. Mom was an amazing cook. Living in Revelstoke, many travelers stopped in at short notice and mom always was able to put on a beautiful meal for everyone. She kept a huge garden, raised her family, and even got her driver’s license at the age of 52! Mom was so amazing and will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Mom came to live in Delta with Susan & Frank in 2003, we were so blessed to have her close.
