We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our beautiful, kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Mary Wilkie. She is survived by the love of her life, Tom with whom she just celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary.
Besides her husband Tom, left to cherish Mary’s memory are her son John (Deanne); daughters Linda (Ron), Dianne (Shaun), and Carol (Don); brother Neil (Laurel and family in Alberta); as well as her brothers, sister and extended family still in Scotland. Mary was a cherished Nana to her precious grandchildren and many great grandchildren; They really were her pride and joy.
Mary was born in Perth, Scotland and married her beloved Tom on March 24, 1956. In July of 1966, Mary, Tom and their children boarded the Empress of Canada and embarked on a new life in Canada. After working for many years, Mary retired from the Province of Manitoba, Department of Tourism, Master Angler Program. Our parents had a wonderful retirement at Victoria Beach. She was a great cook, loved knitting, cake decorating, bingo, line dancing and carpet bowling. All the grandchildren have the greatest, happy memories spending time with Nana and Pop at Victoria Beach.
We are all so grateful for all the wonderful memories of a life well lived, including a family trip back to Scotland six years ago.
A truly classy lady, Mary was always dressed to the nines. No matter where she was, she would always have her lipstick applied immaculately and her high heels upon her feet. She was one in a million and will be missed by all who knew her.
In accordance with Mary’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
