REID, Mary. March 13, 1920 – July 28, 2014. Mary Reid passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at Fraser Canyon Hospital on Monday, July 28, 2014. Mary was predeceased by her husband Jack, her daughter Lynda, her son Bryan and her sister-in-law Mary Reid. She is survived by daughters Sharon (Gerry), Wendy (Metro) and Donna (Jack) and grandchildren Gary, Kerry, Theresa, Tara, Dana and Kye and 9 great grandchildren. Mary was born in Perce, Quebec but lived most of her life in Hope, BC, the town she so loved. She was a talented seamstress, an amazing cook and, most of all, a masterful gardener. Her beautiful yard was her pride and joy and was known to many as mini-Minters. A graveside service was held at Mountainview Cemetery on Thursday July 31, 2014 where Mary was laid to rest next to her beloved husband Jack.
For Our Mother…with Love who taught us to appreciate the beauty around us, and the ability a garden has to give joy, tranquility, and to heal a soul.
Our sincere thanks to Dr. Greggain, to Linda Yearwood and to the nursing staff at Fraser Canyon Hospital for the compassionate care they provided Mary in the last days of her life. Thanks also to Dr. Botha for the kindness and humour he shared with Mom over the years.
