December 21, 1919 – June 21, 2012

Mary went to be with her Lord and Saviour on June 21st, 2012 at the age of 92. Mary was born in Ponte San Pietro, Italy, to Riccardo & Ilda Legler-Tschudi, both of Swiss origin from the canton of Glarus. She was predeceased by her husband Sergio and her brothers Ricco and Fredy. She is survived by brother Franco, sister-in-laws Claude and Anna, and her children Folco, Elena, Guja, June and son-in laws Jack and Costante and daughter-in-law Sharon. She is also survived by her grandchildren Jed, Shiloh, Rachel, David, Marina, Eric, Silvia & Vanessa. Mary loved her flowers, fruit, vegetables and trees in her garden and her horses and pure bred Holsteins. She loved her art and even as a child always had a pad and a pencil nearby. She attended art school in Florence before getting married, took art classes at UFV in the seventies, and was an active member of her church and the Mission Arts Council and the Federation of Canadian Artists. Mary travelled the world. Thank you to her care givers at Ebenezer Home, Bevan Lodge and more recently with the family at Mission Memorial Hospital, Helen Juntilla and Dorothy Fraser. The funeral service will held Friday June 29th at 11 A.M. at Northside Community Church 33507 Dewdney Trunk Road Mission, BC. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Mission Arts Council.
