Mary passed away peacefully in her home on October 18, 2020. Born in Vancouver she was married to her lifelong partner and friend Glenn for 57 years. They had 2 children Vandy (Phillip) and Robert (Karen), and 3 grandchildren, Cordelia, Benjamin and William. She is survived by her sister Isobel and predeceased by her parents Rachel and Arthur Helps.
Mary had a sense of adventure shown by her travels throughout Canada (and the U.S.). She had a great sense of humor, and was a creative spirt who loved music. While unreleased, her song "Yukon, oh Yukon" will always bring a smile to her children's face. Later in life she gained a love of dogs and left behind her beloved companion Max.
In lieu of other tributes, donations to the Penticton Food bank can made.
