It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful loving wife, mother, and grandmother Mary, at the age of 86 years. She will be missed by her husband Joseph–semicolon– her 5 children, Madonna McLafferty of Burnaby, Joseph (Edna) McLafferty of Edmonton, Shannon (Phillip) Fry of Osoyoos, Rebecca (John) deRuiter of North Vancouver, Patrick (Sandra) McLafferty of Edmonton–semicolon– as well as 6 grandchildren, Bryce, Elisa, Jacqueline, Justin, Alanna, and Timothy–semicolon– extended family and friends.
Mary was born and raised in Edmonton. She worked at the Bay downtown in the Cosmetics department for 30 plus years. Mary enjoyed gardening, her cats, listening to music, singing in the church choir, and spending time with her grandchildren.
Special thanks to the wonderful staff at St. Michael’s Long Term Care Centre for their loving care.
