Forever in our thoughts, always in our hearts.
It is with great sadness we regret the passing of Mary Stebbing at Bastion Palliative Care in Salmon Arm BC on June 13 2013 at the age of 84,
Beloved wife of Jim Stebbing, mother of Doug Stebbing (Vancouver), Donna Durham (Don) (Blind Bay), grandchildren, Jason Durham (Corinne) , Nicole Durham , great grandchildren Jessica Durham, Cali Durham and Payten Durham , sisters, Alice, Rosie, Doris, Anna, brothers Albert and Emery and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Arthur and Suzanne O’Brien as well as her brother Eddie.
We will miss her smile and the way her eyes would light at the sight of her grandchildren and great granddaughters. She was a strong minded woman and would always say what was on her mind.
This summer she would have been celebrating her 62 wedding anniversary with the love of her life Jim.
Mom raised two children and instilled in them strong family values, respect for others and to be strong.
Mom loved to cook and we will miss all the great family gatherings. She loved to play bingo and to go fishing. We would often seeing mom out in the boat trying to catch the big one. Her grandson Jason is still trying to catch the big one. Nicole and Mom had a bond like no other. There was not a day went by that they did not talk to each other. They will always have her in there hearts.
She will be missed by all whose lives she touched. She is now in the hands of The Lord.
We love you mom with all our hearts. Rest in peace
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other that we are still ….
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval.
Somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
