It is with great sadness that we announce Mary’s passing. Mary was a cancer survivor who passed away unexpectedly following complications from a stroke in February. She will be remembered as a courageous and passionate wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma and friend to many. Mary will be forever missed by her loving husband of 57 years Ted Wilson; her daughter Cherie Turner; grandchildren Calvin (Tara) Turner, Michelle (Sean) Turner, Andrea (Pete) Lyon and Natalie (Mark) Santacatterina; great-grandchildren Calum,Hannah, Colton, Camryn and Raven; brother-in-law Norm (Ellie) Wilson; the Wilson clan; many nieces and nephews; her swimming ladies; Paulette, Loretta and the gang from SMH; neighbours old and new; and her special friends from Menno Hospital. The family is eternally grateful for the wonderful care and support Mary received while at the Menno Hospital. There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Mary’s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the BC Cancer Foundation.

You can shed tears that she is gone

or you can smile because she has lived.
