Mary Patenaude

1921 ~ 2013

With both sadness and joy we announce the passing of this sweet lady on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at her home in Enderby. Mary was a longtime resident of the Horsefly/Black Creek area where she and her husband raised most of their seven children.

Mary was predeceased by her loving husband Harold in 1995 and her brother Paul Johnson of Richmond in 2010. She leaves to cherish her memory: her children – Harold (Karen), Fraser Lake, BC; Arthur; Geoffrey; and Helen (Bob) Sullivan all of Horsefly, BC; Maureen (Duncan) Walker, Enderby, BC; Sherry Gates (Rick Romman), Redwater, AB; and Shane (Sylvia Ketterer), Enderby, BC; 17 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild plus several step-grandchildren. She also leaves behind a very special friend Karen Desimone of Enderby with whom she shared a very special bond.

A service will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Williams Lake, BC at 10 am on Saturday, March 2 with interment in the Horsefly Community Cemetery to follow. A family gathering is planned to celebrate her life at the home of her son Geoff in Horsefly following the interment.
