Mary MITCHELL (nee Polowich)

October 28, 1934 - April 16, 2020

Mary Mitchell passed away on April 16, 2020 at the age of 85. She was born the fifth child to Pauline and Steve Polowich in Arabella District, Saskatchewan.

Mary is survived by her daughters Toni (Steven) and Kelly (Mike), granddaughter Madison (Tony), brothers Paul (Agnes) and Edward (Linda), and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Mary is predeceased by her parents Pauline and Steve and brothers Bill, Metro, John (Gloria), Ernie (Darcia), Mike (Alice), Eugene (Colleen) and Stanley (Heather).

Mary loved to garden, bake and make preserves. She gladly shared her recipes to all who asked.
Nothing pleased her more than hosting meals for family and friends. There was always room for another at Mary's dining table.

The family would like to thank Doctor B. Millar and all the dedicated staff at Hilltop House for Mom's excellent care.

Due to the current emergency in BC there will be private service by request and a public Celebration of Mary's Life will take place at a future date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Mary's name to the Hilltop House Support Society or a charity of you choice.

When we moved to Squamish in 1977, we stayed at the August Jack. Mary made us feel so welcome from our first meeting. We shared many laughs and happy times together. My deepest sympathy to her entire family. Louise Dillabough

I will always remember Grandma Mary’s love, kindness, generosity and energy. Although not a grandmother by blood, she is a grandma of my heart. She will be greatly missed, sending lots of love to you Auntie and Uncle Steven 💕

Dear Toni, Steven, Kelly and Madison, We are sending our deepest condolences to you all at this difficult time. As you know, Mary and my mother Betty worked together for many years and became the best of friends. I have many memories of the girls getting together and having so many laughs. We all remember well your moms baked bread, cabbage rolls, pickles and the vegetables from her garden. A more loving, generous and hard working woman there never was. She will always be remembered with so much love by all of our family. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, and loving memories of your mom and grandmother, to forever hold in your heart.
With love, Betty, Bill, Brenda, Kristin and Courtney and family

My daughter Raven has been a vegetarian for more than a decade. Only once has she with knowledge and her own volition eaten meat in that time: a roast turkey dinner lovingly cooked by ‘Gramma Mary’, such were her culinary skills.

My daughter Summer still recalls a strawberry picking expedition years ago with me and her Uncle Steven, when the sun blazed and the three of us picked past the point of exhaustion, anxious to bring back to Mary enough of the juicy red fruit to be transformed into the jam we all so loved.

I will always remember Mary’s limitless hospitality, her commitment to an honest day’s work, and her fierce love of family.

God speed you, Mary. You will be missed.

With love from Julie, Richard, Raven and Summer 💕💕💕
