Mary Patricia Park (Bryant)

July 13, 1942 – February 19, 2019
Mary Patricia (nee Bryant) Park, also known as “Mary from the Dairy”, “She Who Must be Obeyed” and “Don’t mess with Mary”, born 13 July 1942 in Johannesburg, South Africa and died 19 February 2019 in Chilliwack,  B.C., Canada, wife of the late (Samuel) Graham Park (deceased 19 June 2018).

Mary will be missed by all her art students, friends and family, both two- and four-legged.

Who knows what forests in heaven she will be running through enjoying the  company of elephants, rhinoceros, owls and all the other wild things. You may hear her calling in the wilds “Bellinis anyone?”

If you wish, you can make a donation  in her name “Mary  P. Park” to WWF, which will be put towards their elephant campaign (one of Mary’s favourite four-legged friends): https://wwf.donorportal.ca/tributeim/Donation/InMemory.aspx?L=en-%20CA&G=14&F=519&T=INMEM”

She will be deeply missed by her children John, Richard and Trish, and her surviving sisters Barbara and Norah.
