Mary Bollong

July 24, 1929 - November 17, 2015


Mary passed quietly on November 17, having been a resident of Osoyoos for 53 years, a place dearly loved by her and her recently deceased husband Cy.

She grew up in Michichi, AB during the depression. Her well educated Father left a formative impression for a love of reading and passion for learning. Educated as a nurse, she moved to Vancouver to discover her life.

A beautiful, strong and loving woman, she was active in curling, golf and community center activities in her youthful years. In her later years she enjoyed emptying the pockets of casino owners, blew smoke in Death’s face and helped stimulate the growing local wine industry by her weekly wine.

Strong and proud to the end, she challenged the EMT’s and staff of S.O. General Hospital to a living contest, only to realize that Death would eventually win.

She is survived by her children Shelley, Brent, his wife Karen, and grandchildren Lauren, Rafael and Haley.

She will be missed.
