at the age of 95 years
DARMOKID, MARY (nee Blosky) on March 22, 2012 in Vernon, BC at the age of 95 years. Born in Poland on November 18, 1916.
Mary was predeceased by her husband Mike in 1970 and son Roger in 1966. She is survived by her loving family: daughter Sonja (Wil) Van Der Meer of Salmon Arm, BC; grandchildren; Craig (Bridgette) Van Der Meer of Ft. St. John, Curtis (Cherie) Van Der Meer of Whitecourt, AB and Chris Van Der Meer of Whitecourt, Alberta; also four great grandchildren; Bailey, Trinity, Landis and Ryann as well as numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Mary always lived for her family, especially her grandsons and their families. She spoke of them every day; she had an influence in bringing them up to be the wonderful men they are today. She was proud of them and also loved her son in law and thought he was “the best guy in the world”, with the respect and love he showed her. He especially loved her cooking: the stir-frys, which she called “Hash”, Borscht, Perogies and cabbage rolls.
She always had a big garden and lived in her home until she moved to Coldstream in her late 92nd year. She made new friends easily and was happy and healthy. Mary worked as a Dietary Aid at the Delview Hospital until she retired.
The family would like to thank, Dr. Lemiski, the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Staff of 3 North, Coldstream Meadows staff where she spent the last three years and all the Interior Health Care Aids.
A graveside service will be held on Thursday, March 29th, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in Pleasant Valley Cemetery, 4303 Pleasant Valley Road, Vernon, BC, with Pastor Larry Dyck officiating. A time of fellowship will follow at Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Mary’s name may be made to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, 2101 32nd Street,Vernon,BC,V1T 5L2.
I was young when we used to go to Uncle Mike and Aunty Marys’ house in Vernon, but I will always remember the garden and backyard.Good food as well! Rest in Peace my Dear.JZ.
