January 17, 1932 – February 25, 2010

Mary Reddekopp of Calgary passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 25, 2010 at the age of 78 years, after a courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Mary was born and raised in Altona, MB. In 1949, she married George Reddekopp and moved to Alberta shortly thereafter. Here she spent the rest of her years. Mary was a very kind and giving person, who touched the lives of many. Her love for music encouraged others as she gently shared her knowledge with her piano students. She enjoyed baking and working in her garden, and also loved spending time with her family, especially the grandchildren and, more lately, the great-grandchildren.

Left behind, always to love and remember, are her son Wayne; daughters and sons-in-law, Gail and Stan Bold, and Sharon and Peter Schaber; grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Christina, Sheldon and Brooklyn Fehr, Matthew, Beth and Keegan Bold, Joshua and Daniel Bold, Benjamin, Nicolas and Jacob Schaber, Darren and Leighann Bold, Steffany Colvinns and Mike Fischer. Also mourning her loss are her sister and brother-in-law Helen and Bill Funk, and sister Susie Loewen, as well as many other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her husband George Reddekopp; parents, Henry and Helen Thiessen; brother Abe; and step mom Marie Thiessen.

We have the blessed assurance that Mary knew where she was going and is now in the presence of the Living God.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Fish Creek Chapel (14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through

    The residents of Sundance on the Green and Bethany Care Society have you in our thoughts and prayers.

    What I remember most was how Mary was always so worried abut being late for any appointments. You can be sure she was never late, unless someone else made her late.

    She was so very proud to be a great grandmother. She could hardly wait to show her pictures of the babies.

    Mary was always smiling. She never asked for help but was willing to help others.

    May she rest in peace.

  4. Pius and Patty Rolheiser :

    Mary was a very special person and it has always been a priviledge to know her.
    She was a very good friend to our father Homer. It was nice for us to have her with us when he was ill. I don’t think I have met a more selfless and giving person. She was an amazing example to us all.
    I am so sorry we can not be with you today. We will get in touch soon.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Sincerely, Pius and Patty Rolheiser.
