STEUART, Mary Evelyn
STEUART, Mary Evelyn of Summerland passed away quietly in her sleep on May 5, 2014 at the age of 85 years. She was born January 7, 1929 to James Alan & Eva Rose Steuart. A mischievous grin and an infectious giggle always preceded the first words from Mary. Never a harsh word spoken about another, Mary was eternally happy all her life. She lived each moment to the fullest and never looked back. Forever curious Mary travelled the world but never found any other place she would rather be than Summerland. She was sadly predeceased by her sister Peggy in 2008. Mary is survived by her brother in law Al McKillop, niece Marian (Ross) Plewman and her nephew Jim (Patricia) McKillop as well as great niece Jayme (Justin) McKillop/Therien, Joey (Sandy) McKillop, Patrick McKillop & Peter McKillop and great, great nephews Cyrus McKillop and Nico McKillop. Mary will be fondly remembered by her extended family, many lifelong friends, and numerous others who passed through the doctor’s office during her years spent at the front desk. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Summerland Seniors Village for the great care and respect that they always showed towards Mary. She often spoke of how happy she was and how much she appreciated living there. An informal memorial for Mary will take place later this year for those who wish to say good bye. Always a cat lover and not much for ceremony, please make any donations to the SPCA in Mary’s name.
