Nov 18, 1931 – Nov 30, 2011
It is with great sorrow we announce the
passing of Mary Serwa on November 30, 2011.
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.

Ernie Serwa, Eddie Serwa (Marj), Irene Serwa, Aunt Helen Serwa, Mike & Mary Syrnyk,

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.
