Mary Reich


On July 07 2011 Mary Reich left us and joyfully entered her heavenly home. She was born on May 30 1917 near

Yorkton Sask. She had the privilege of growing up on a farm, developing a love for animals and working outdoors. In her last year of high school she won the women’s’ track and field championship. Later she attended Yorkton collegiate college to become a hairdresser. She met John Reich just as WWII began and had to wait until the war was over to marry her sweetheart. In 1962 they arrived in Kelowna and later built their dream home, it was a busy place as Mary loved to visit, the house always seemed to be full of friends and family and food. In 1996 they celebrated their 53rd

wedding anniversary, shortly after John passed away. From an early age she was overwhelmed with the sense of her

indebtedness to Jesus Christ, she spent her life to

expressing it. She passionately nurtured her family, friends and flowers. She is survived by her sons Brock [Audrey] and Mitchell [Yvonne], grandchildren, Hannah, Ruth and Noah. Special thanks to all the staff at Sutherland hills, particularly those who worked in Roselane, all of you treated mom so kindly, you guys are awesome!
