Mardy grew up in Yarrow, B.C. She accepted Jesus as Saviour and was baptized at 16. Her relationship to Jesus was her cornerstone. Mardy attended East Chilliwack, (B.C.) Bible School, then nurse’s training at Vancouver General Hospital. After graduating in 1962, she worked in B.C., Manitoba and California before settling in Calgary. Mardy enjoyed making family memories in campgrounds, at hotels, and on cruises across Canada, the U.S., Europe and Bali. She loved volunteering at MCC and Dalhousie Church. She sang in the choir, crocheted afghans, scrapbooked, did puzzles, baked and spent time with grandchildren. Even when she learned her cancer had returned, Mardy continued to live her faith and share her hope of heaven with everyone she met.
