It is with great sorrow we announce the

Mary was predeceased by her loving husband

of 49 years, Albert, in 2001, as well as

her brother, Mark Taylor and sisters

Liz Taylor and Lil Titanich.

Mary is survived by her son, David and his sons Ryan, Derrick (Christine) and Levi as well as her daughters Darlene Laramie and Yvonne Svensson and Darlene’s children Taylor

Laramie (Tanie) and Jaime Edmondson (Shaun) and by her close friend Jerry Sandhu. She will be sorely missed by

her many granddogs.

Mary’s adventurous spirit took her from Roblin, Manitoba in the early 1950’s to Kelowna where she met and married Albert, the love of her life.  Long-time Glenmore residents, Mary and Albert ran the family farm and many other businesses over the years.  Mary was dedicated to her

community and served four terms as a city

alderman from 1973 to 1982.  She also served

on the Regional District, the Glenmore Irrigation

District and was a founding member of the

Grape Growers Association.
