MARY PALLETT

MARY PALLETT 1916 - 2013 Peacefully on January 11, 2013, Mary Pallett, beloved mother of Pru and Lance and grandmother of Robyn and Karen, passed away at the age of 96. Mary was born on November 30, 1916 to Elsie Clara and Frederick Ellwood of Alderly Edge, Cheshire, England. She served her country during the Second World War, first in the Land Army and then as a radar operator. After the war, she married Norman Pallett of Winnipeg. They came to Canada and settled in the Riverview neighbourhood. Pru and Lance were born soon after. Norman died in 1964. Mary worked for many years at the Dafoe Library at the University of Manitoba, where she made many friends. During retirement, she enjoyed travelling, including many visits to England. The family would like to thank the staff of Riverview Health Centre CD-1 for making Mary's last years so comfortable. Thank you. A service celebrating Mary's life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 8 in the Riverview Health Centre Worship Centre.

  • Mary was a much loved auntie who came over regularly to England. She loved her family both in Canada and England. She was so interesting to converse with and we loved to hear about her exciting life. She will be missed greatly. She was the last of the Ellwood family, who were well known in Cheshire.
