January 18, 1916 – October 29, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear sweet mother and grandmother at the remarkable age of 97. She passed away in her garden, doing what she loved.
Mary was born in Hairy Hill, Alberta and came to Vernon as a young bride. She will be missed by many, including her children: Elmer of Armstrong, Lorraine (Harry) Misura of Calgary, Melvin (Jacquie) of Vernon, Doug of Vancouver, and special nephew, Kelly (Roberta) Pinske of Vernon. Her delicious cabbage rolls and baking will be missed by Mary’s five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Mary was pre-deceased by: her husband John, her sisters Pearl Pinske, and Dorothy Mowat, brothers George and John Kachuk, and daughter in law Gerry Cucheron.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Mary at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, 4303 Pleasant Valley Road, Vernon BC on Friday November 8, 2013 at 10:30 am. Condolences may be offered at www.pleasantvalleyfh.com
