Mary was born in Poland on February 7, 1932. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1934. Mary lived in Kapuskasing, ON, where she grew up. She worked as a nursing assistant at the local hospital and in the cafeteria at the local pulp mill where she met Tony. They married in 1953 and in 1956, they moved west to Hinton, AB, for Tony’s job opportunity at the new Pulp Mill. They quickly became members of a thriving, exciting new community. In 2017, Mary and Tony moved to Calgary to enjoy their senior years in a beautiful retirement lodge.
Mary was a proud wife, mother and Baba. She was “Master” of the house, was proud of her cooking skills and made the best perogies, cabbage rolls and beet soup!
