It is with heavy hearts that the family and friends of Mary Harris must announce her passing on November 26, 2014. Mary was born on April 5, 1927, in Kiev, Ukraine and came to Canada in 1939. Mary was predeceased by her husband, Adam in 1988, her son Barry also in 1988, granddaughters Denice in 1974 and Melinda in 2012. Mary leaves behind her daughters Barbara Heroux (Phillip), Beverley Jennings (Raymond), Bernice Hermanson (Mark), Brenda McCaul (Eamon), sons Bobby and Benny, her grandchildren Michael, Jodi, Shane, Corey, Kyle, Kevin, Sheena, Jessica, Ryan, Steven, Rhianna and her great-grandchildren Haylee, Sierra, Alex, River, Talon, Ashley and Tyson.
Mary was an active member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and Hall in Mission for many years. Mary will be sorely missed by her friends and all those who enjoyed her cooking. The family would like to thank those staff members at TRIM (The Residence in Mission) who worked so hard to make Mary’s final days as comfortable as possible. A service was held at the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Mission on December 2, 2014 and Mary was then laid to rest beside her late husband at the Mission Cemetery.
