Mary Petersen (nee Gordey)

~ A Life Well Lived ~

June 30th, 1931 – October 14th, 2014

October 14, 2014 was a sad day, saying goodbye to our loving devoted mother. She fought a long hard fight with her health in the last few months, is no longer suffering and is at peace. Predeceased by her beloved husband Buster (IB) Petersen

Dearly loved mother, Mary leaves behind her 4 children, Carol (Petersen) Bassett, (Todd) Karl Petersen, Anna-Marie (Petersen) Brednow, And Michael Petersen (Melissa). Mary is also survived by her 7 wonderful Grandchildren which she adored. Dallen, Danny (Carol) Candice, Brock, Alieshia, (Anna-Marie) Jessica and Rebecca (Michael)

Mary was born in Vilna Alberta, the eldest daughter of Mother, Pearl Gordey ( 1944) and Father, John Gordey,( 1988). Brothers, Bill and Peter, Sisters, Irene, Ruth Lena and Vicky. (Predeceased by Ruth and Irene.)

Mary was a hard working, funny, always thinking, caring lady who loved to have fun, “feel with her fingers” and be involved with her children and grandchildren.

Most importantly she was a loving mother and always there for us… now always in our hearts. Mary (and her Children) wished to thank all of the staff at Eagle Ridge Manor for the extra care and support they gave. Dr. Douglas, for all the challenges he had and Tracy Lamming of the Port Hardy Medical clinic for helping and listening and Dr Armagam for his dedicated years of patience.

A tea will be held at the Baptist Church November 15th at 1:00 pm to celebrate Mary’s wonderful Life.

Mary is now reunited with her loved one Buster.

Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean we will miss you until we meet again.
