MARY MACLEAN March 26, 1941 – November 15, 2020 Peacefully, on Sunday, November 15th, 2020, Mary passed away with her family by her side. She is survived by her beloved daughter Ruth and favourite son-in-law Ronald, her twin sister Kathy and nieces Susan (Gerry), Trish (Russ, children Ryden and Teagan) and Val (Steve). Mary was born on March 26, 1941, in Winnipeg along with her twin sister and soulmate Kathy. She was predeceased by her parents, Anna and William Melnyk and her brother-in-law Tony Leochko. Mary spent a large part of her working life at WestRock (formerly McMillan Bloedel) and retired after 30 years, only to begin her second career, as a casual employee with Carpathia Credit Union for approximately 14 years. Faith and St. Joseph’s church were very important to Mary. She was a member of both the church and the UCWLC since the mid-1970s. Mary was a very devoted, loyal, reliable and loving soul who worked full time while raising her daughter as a single parent. During this time, Mary also completed night school, played golf regularly and nurtured her many friendships. Mary enjoyed many friendships from all aspects of her life, some of which lasted over 50 years. Our family extends our heartfelt gratitude to Holy Family Nursing Home, Dr. T. Babick and Dr. A. Babick, blessed Sisters, the nurses, aides and all staff that helped take care of Mom during this difficult time. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a small family service will take place on Tuesday November 24, 2020 at 1:00pm. Live streaming will be available through the Cropo Website. A reception will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Holy Family Nursing Home or Canadian Cancer Society in Mary’s memory.
