Mary was born July 5, 1921 at Parkerview, SK, second eldest of 13 children of Metro and Anastasia Fedak. After completing high school and teacher training, she began her career at Etoimamie Valley in the Sturgis School Division. She soon met and married a handsome farmer, Raymond. Settling on the farm north of Preeceville, they were blessed with 6 children. Her love of teaching returned her to classrooms at Robinson Creek, Gold Bank, South Porcupine, Endeavour and finally Preeceville.
Family was center in her life. She taught by word and example. Always a hard worker, she kept her family well cared for and loved, her garden abundant and her yard beautiful. She planted flowers everywhere to be enjoyed and shared.
Faith in God and prayer were important. She read the Bible and prayed daily. She supported children’s ministries and gospel missions and gladly volunteered in the church and community, both in Preeceville and Circle Drive Place in Saskatoon which she enjoyed for 21 years before becoming a resident of Circle Drive Special Care Home.
She will be cherished and remembered by her children: Margaret (Brendan) Brown, Joanne Bye, Evelyn Robson, Walter, Karen Gunn, and Sharon (Dwayne) Kramer; her grandchildren: Geoffrey, Daniel and Paul Brown; Kirsten McCullagh and Michael Robson; Victor, Rebecca and Joshua Gunn; and Erik, Phillip and Shawna Hislaw; 18 great-grandchildren and 7 great-great-grandchildren; siblings Anna Kirstuik, Ted (Stella), Morris (Grace), Brian(Merle),and Jean(Bob) Perry; sisters-in-law Marge, Betty, Ursula and Sarah; nieces, nephews and friends.
Mary was predeceased by her beloved husband Raymond in 1986; her parents Metro and Anastasia Fedak; brothers William, Steve, Walter, Boris, George, and John; sister Rose Johnson; granddaughter Erin Hislaw; grandson Gary Gunn; sons-in-law Harlan Bye and Dennis Robson; sisters-in-law Carol and Patricia; brothers-in-law Loring Johnson and Bill Kirstuik.
We are grateful to God for Mary’s life and her legacy of faith and hope.
