Mary earned her RN degree at Galt School of Nursing, in Lethbridge, Alta., where she met Ken. She worked as an RN in Dawson Creek, B.C., for 3 years, before moving to Caronport, Sask., for Ken’s studies at Briercrest Bible College. In 1979, she continued her nursing career at Herbert (Sask.) Nursing Home, where she remained until retirement in June 2014. Mary’s compassion was shaped by her faith in Jesus. She loved music, gardening and being with friends and family. Mary and Ken drove, flew and cruised to adventure all over the world. Mary spent her last days under the superlative care of her former colleagues at Herbert Hospital.
