Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I grew up in Rosenhof. I looked up to and admired my older cousin Mary. Our family sometimes needed a babysitter and Mary was one of our favourites! We would make a large bowl of popcorn with her and then settle in for story time. Mary told the best stories and I still remember sitting in rapt attention as she told the story of Aladdin and other fairytales. In those days, with few books in our household, our imaginations exploded, with pictures in our minds, as she vividly portrayed the setting and the plot! She was always positive and happy. - Posted by: Alviera Plett (Cousin) on: Apr 03, 2020

  • Our condolences to the Dyck family. Met Mary when my husband was a patient in HSC. Very obvious that Mary was very well loved by her family and friends that visited her often. - Posted by: Fred and Judy Walder (Room mate in hospital ) on: Mar 30, 2020
