Mary B. Plewes
Mary passed away on February 5, 2012 at Nanaimo Seniors Village. She was predeceased by her husband, Ken of 62 years in 2004, and her four brothers and sisters–in-law. Mary is survived by Bob (Margaret) of Prince George and Kathy (Sean) McKierahan of Nanaimo; grandchildren: Janna, Gord, Connor (Jessica), Ian; great granddaughter, Tegan and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mary was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on July 19, 1919 living through the dirty 30’s and WWII when Ken served overseas.
In 1963 Ken and Mary moved to Victoria. She enjoyed playing golf at Royal Colwood, travelling with Ken, playing bridge, reading, crossword puzzles and cheering for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. She moved to Nanaimo after Ken’s death, living at Berwick until her health deteriorated.
Mary’s lasting gift was her expression of unconditional love for family and loyalty to valued friends. Many thanks go to the caring staff of Nanaimo Seniors Village, especially in her last days. A gathering to share memories will take place on April 7th at two o’clock at First Memorial, 4725 Falaise Rd., Victoria. Donations may be made, in her name, to the Parkinson Society or the charity of choice.
