Mary Alice Friesen

October 5, 1936 - August 18, 2013


It is with very heavy hearts we announce Mary's passing in Powell River, BC. Mary was predeceased by her parents, Donald and Jessie, her soul-mate Gary Foley as well as Bill Friesen, the father of her children. She leaves to mourn her children Lydia Richards, Lisa Friesen, Billy Friesen, Linda (Stacey) Friesen, Laura (Doug) Friesen, her “adopted son” Richard (Darcy) Shute and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also leaves brothers Donald (Shirley) and Kenneth (Jolanta), nephews, nieces and many other family and friends. Mary was born in Selkirk, Manitoba and lived in Winnipeg, where she and Bill raised their children. She relocated to Langley, BC and resided in Powell River until her passing. The family expresses their deepest gratitude to: Richard and Darcy for their tireless love, care and compassion for Mary, especially during her illness. To her dear friend Ruby and all of her extended family including Bill and Pat also Shelagh and Don who were always there for her. To the amazing Doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers on the fourth floor of the Powell River General Hospital. Mary requests that you tip a glass of your favorite beverage and toast to the good life shared with loved ones.

“If, instead of a gem or even a flower, we could cast the gift of a lovely thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.” – G. MacDonald

Goodbye Mom. We love you!
