Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Our condolences to Vivian and Alvin and your families. "Aunt" Mary and "Uncle" Alvin were always very nice and a lot of fun when they visited. I always loved the white in her otherwise dark hair, she was a trend setter with that style. Lots of love, hold on tight to the memories. ♥ (Karl & Carol youngest daughter) - Posted by: Valdine Penner (nee Snydal) (relative) on: Aug 17, 2022

  • Condolences to Mary's family. I worked with Mary for many years at the VON. Mary was such a lovely person, she was our Grandma and was always so kind to us young folk, she had a beautiful heart and the sweetest laugh, just thinking of her makes me smile. She absolutely adored her family to pieces. May you rest in Peace Mary. - Posted by: Tara (former coworker at VON) on: Aug 16, 2022

  • Mary was a dear friend over the last almost 50 years. We had a lot of good times with Charleswood Ladies Auxiliary - over 40 years a member and other community events that we worked together. Her and Al had many wonderful years with the Red River EX and Church times. They were warm and inviting to make people comfortable. We will remember them. - Posted by: Carol Hadley (Friend) on: Aug 15, 2022
