COWIE, Mary Elizabeth (nee Nicol)
August 8, 1926-July 27, 2012

Mary passed away peacefully at age 85 at Surrey Memorial Hospital on Friday, July 27, 2012.
She was born in Forest Lawn, Alberta on August 8, 1926. She was predeceased by her parents, Stephen and Hazel Nicol, her brothers, Fred and Alex, her nieces, Pat and Lori, and her nephew Jim. She was a cherished Mother to her 4 children, Rick (Betty), Janet (George), Ken, and Rob (Kim) and was an adored grandmother to her 7 grandchildren. Mary most enjoyed spending time with family and friends. She especially loved to cheer her children and grandchildren at sporting events. She had a generous, warm heart and a willingness to help others. Mary was greatly loved and will be missed by all. Our family would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the staff and all her friends at ‘Elim’ where she enjoyed living her past 6 years.
A Celebration of Life will be held on August 25, 2012 at 2pm at Elim Village in the ‘Oasis Building’ at 9008 158 Street, Surrey (enter off 160th St. and 90th Ave)

Sad to hear this news. Mary was a dear friend and neighbour to my sister Marie Graham Ades. Remembered fondly.

From: Liane (Ades) Beattie
Relation: Friend

Rick, Janet,Ken & Rob: We were so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. As neighbours in Surrey, Mary became such a dear friend to my mom and dad, Glen and Marie Ades, and continued to be so throughout the years, even after we moved around the province. She was such a kind and generous woman, taking in all the neighbourhood kids as one of her own whenever we needed a bandaid or glass of kool-aid as the gang tore around the neighbourhood. We especially appreciated her making the trip to Victoria for my dad’s 80th birthday celebration just five years ago. Our thoughts are with you as we fondly remember your mom and a life well lived. She will be missed.

place in my heart. I am just out of hospital and unable to attend today.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
