Obituary of Mary E. Arthur

Mary E. Arthur, eldest daughter of the late Bob (Robert) Arthur and the late Jean (Brown) Arthur, passed away peacefully January 16, 2024 at Wildwood Care Centre in her 86th year.

Mary is survived by her siblings, David Arthur (Evelyn), Nancy Arthur-Ische (late Al Ische), Catherine Bruce (late Ian), John Arthur (Elaine) and Peggy Arthur (Diane Boulanger) along with nieces and nephews, Steve Arthur (Tina), Karen Arthur (Neil Little), Andrea Spicer (Chris), Patrick McCormack (Jane), Mark Stevens (Darlene Stewart) and Michal Lowthorpe (Steve)

Mary had a keen interest in caring for others and getting to know them. She had a particular fondness for children , who always brought joy to her life. Whenever a child entered the room, all the adults disappeared from her focus.

Mary worked for 40 years in different roles, including as a telephone switchboard operator in Medina, working with young children in Hazelton, B.C., at a seniors’ residence at Alma College and finally, in home care in the local community.

Mary was also passionate about photography, especially capturing the architectural details of St Marys. She enjoyed road trips, spending time with family and friends, singing in choirs and playing her keyboard at various functions.

The family extends their deep appreciation to all the staff at Wildwood Care Centre for their compassionate and professional care of our sister, Mary.

A private celebration for immediate family will be held at a future date.

Memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choosing.
