Born: July 28th, 1954

Passed on: February 7th, 2013

Mary McKay passed away suddenly on February 07, 2013 at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC at the young age of 58.

She is survived by her husband John, daughter Gwen, sons Colin (Lucy) and Sean, granddaughter Missy, grandsons Adam and Maxwell, great-granddaughter Rose, and many other loving family members and friends.

Mary loved family and making sure everyone was always together and happy. She was a true kin keeper. She loved every moment she could spend with her family and grandchildren. Mary truly had a heart of gold and was always putting others ahead of herself no matter how much pain she was in. She was the best cook and loved to be in the kitchen, always baking or making something for the family. She shined so brightly when she smiled, watching her face light up and seeing her happy is a memory we will all cherish.

Her love has spread through us all
and become a part of us forever.

Born in Curling, Newfoundland on July 28, 1954, Mary eventually made her way across Canada to B.C. where she raised the most beautiful family, always doing the best she could. It is hard to describe how strong a woman Mary was. She loved everyone so much. We will all miss our dear beautiful mother, wife, grandma, friend, mentor, daughter and sister. She was everything to us all. We can rest assured knowing she is no longer in pain and is watching us all.
