Mary Brown Obituary

It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Mary Brown, of Tofield, Alberta shortly after celebrating her 104th birthday.  She had a long and well lived life and is survived by her three children, Lynn Gates, of Tofield, Allan Brown (Marg) of Duncan, BC and Judy Walde (Cliff) of Fort Macleod, AB.

She was predeceased by her husband Roy in 1994, and also outlived all of her siblings by over 30 years.

She leaves behind 9 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, and 1 great, great grandchild. She also leaves to mourn many nieces and nephews in Canada, as well as numerous cousins in England.

Mary was born in Govan, Saskatchewan in 1920 followed by four other siblings soon after.  The family then relocated to Calgary.  Misfortune occurred in 1928 when father Geoff was killed in a refinery explosion.  Mom, as the eldest of five was called upon to help care for her younger siblings.  It was tough through the depression.

She and Roy were married in 1940 and built a life together in Calgary.  In 1968, they moved to the Okanogan settling in Kelowna.  Roy passed away in 1994 and shortly thereafter, mom, wanting to be closer to family, decided to relocate to Tofield.  The first few years were spent in an apartment at the old hospital and then she made the decision to apply to the Tofield Lodge.  In 2022, as she needed more assistance, she moved into The Tofield Continuing Care facility and stayed until her passing on March 20, 30 years and 1 day after dad passed.

Mary enjoyed many social activities including bowling, dancing, curling and floor curling, making many friends along the way. She won many cribbage tournaments while in the lodge.

Mary will be fondly remembered as a beautiful person.

A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, April 7, 2024 at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 91 in Tofield, Alberta, 4909-52 Ave.
