Maria ‘Mary’ Makosiej

April 7, 1927 – December 17, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother and Babcia, Mary Makosiej at age 94. She will be dearly missed by her children Halina, Andy (Patti), and Mark (Lori); daughter-in-law Ania; grandchildren Lucas, Mark, Felicia, Christina, Julian, Angela, Adam, Andrew, and Brianne; great grandchildren Dylan and Matthew. Mary was predeceased by her husband of 65 years Joe, and son Kazmir in 2021.  
Mary was born in Wierzawice, Poland where she met her husband, Joe. They immigrated to Canada in 1955 to the Lenvale district in Saskatchewan. Raising their family, they later moved to Melfort Saskatchewan. In 1993 Joe and Mary retired to Campbell River BC.
Family was everything to Mary and she embraced being a homemaker. She enjoyed gardening (especially her passion for flowers), canning, sewing; and she loved to cook, bake and entertain. She was the ultimate hostess, and always had an open door. She had a strong work ethic and liked to help others. Mary loved her faith and was a member of the CWL in Saskatchewan. In her later years, she enjoyed the companionship found at Adult Care.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Robert Ramsey for his exceptional care; all the staff at Adult Care, homemakers, homecare nurses and hospital staff.
Prayers will be held on Dec. 30 at 6 pm and Funeral Mass on Friday, Dec. 31 at 11 am at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church.
