May 31, 1926 – July 30, 2023
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mary Sawatsky at the age of 97.
In Heaven, she joins her beloved husband, Frank, who preceded her in 2004.
Mary was born in Andrew, Alberta, and grew up on the family farm. She attended Secretarial College in Edmonton where she met Frank who was in the Canadian Armed Forces. They married and lived in Alberta, BC, Ontario, and France.
Mary was a member of Chilliwack Alliance Church and retired as a Court Registrar of the Chilliwack Court House. She was an avid reader, loved gardening, cooking, and playing card games. She was devoted to family and accepting of all who crossed her path. The family will remember her fantastic Ukrainian meals, including her pies and homemade ‘grandma buns’.
Mary leaves behind 4 children: Lorne (Carol), Wendy (Len), Kerry (pre-deceased, Lois), Randy (Lorri) 9 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff and caregivers at Baillie House in Maple Ridge for taking exceptional care of our mom over the past two and a half years.
With joyful hearts we are happy that she is with her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
