Mary Hendy (nee Coulter)

Feb 15, 1927 – Mar 31, 2018
Mary passed away peacefully at East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook at the age of 91. She was born in Saskatoon, SK and lived a long, happy and healthy life. She was predeceased by her husband Lorne Coulter.

She is survived by her son Stewart Coulter (wife Deborah), daughter Maridee Rodrigues (husband Shayne), grandchildren Paige Coulter (husband Brad), Camden Coulter (wife Hsiao Chien), Jenel Melnyk (husband Clayton), and Nicholas Rodrigues, great-grandchildren, Emmett, Charlie, Zodi, Edie and Chase.

Mary grew up in Saskatoon and moved to Prince Albert to do her nurses training at Holy Family Hospital. After nursing in Saskatchewan for a few years she married Lorne Coulter. Their lives, careers and children, were mainly in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Her life was filled with fun and adventure through square dancing, curling, Sweet Adelines and golf.

She lost her husband at an early age and life took her to the West Coast. The last 22 years of her life were in Kimberley, BC. While in Kimberley she volunteered for many causes, joined the Mustard Cutters Singers, played floor curling and golf. Mary felt so fortunate to have such a loving family and to have made so many wonderful friends during her life time.

There will be a celebration of life for Mary in September 2018.
