It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of Mary Elizabeth Robinson (McNabb) on January 12, 2021.

Mary fought a long 9-month battle to beat cancer and succeeded in 5 months, only to suffer with many challenges of health problems, but could not in the end win the battle that kept re occurring.  In the end her liver was attacked to the point of being incurable, sadly the cancer had also returned to an un repairable area that Mary could not beat, only because she was so weak and the fight was all but gone.  To the very last she never gave up!  She still had hope and a smile still the same.  God Bless Mary now and for ever.

Mary was predeceased by her brother Delton, sister Lana, father Bert, mother Doris and her brother Gary.

Mary will be loving remembered and cherished by grandchildren: Carrie (Mitch), Bj (Gina), Amanda, Christine, Carmen, Becky (Sebastian)  and Bruce; as well as her great grandchildren: Colby, Taylor, Kaydence, Alexa, James, Matty, Sophie, Mya and Ryland


Messages from the Family


The first night we met

A bunch of us were going to town, I said out the window "no more places to sit", Mary said "open the door", sat on my lap and said "there I got my place"......  61 years, 7 months,12 days later, came to an end.  Till we meet again..  my lap will be available.

Till we meet again

Dear Mary losing you has been like losing my legs.  I can’t explain the feeling but numbness comes to mind.  I tell you I love you as if you are still here and  in spirit you are with me.  Life with you for 62 years could not feel any better no matter what.  I have tears in my eyes more than not, just saying your name the flood gates open.  I hope in time we can be as one again, so deep in love as always love does not change it just gets better.

Love you to pieces and bits, me to you and you to me always.  We never said goodbye, just see you..

Love Dick


I am so truly blessed and honored that you were my Mom. I am the women I am today because you showed me how to be kind and loving and strong.  You were unselfish and loving and always thinking of everyone before your self.  You saw the beauty in all of us and always made me feel special. When all the grand-kids were born they had a special place in your heart. Your eyes would light up with love when you saw them.

I will miss your smile and your soft spoken voice. You will always have a piece of my heart.
I wish you were here today but i know that you are flying with the angles today. I will love you forever.

Your loving daughter

My memories of Mom

I will always remember Mom to be kind, gentle, patient and giving of herself to help others. She was a beautiful person inside and out Always thinking of others before herself. She was soft spoken and always made me feel special which I found to be very comforting.
Mom was a great cook and her meals were always delicious no matter what she made. She enjoyed giving me leftovers for my lunch on Monday’s which meant I had two helpings of her food. All her meals were made with a lot of love as she enjoyed cooking for her family.
Family was the most important thing to mom. She loved all babies whether human or animal. I could tell how much joy they gave her.
I will always miss her teasing me about which cloth I never remembered to use when drying her cast iron pot her delicious meals were cooked in! Her gravy was the best and will never be duplicated. Always one of the best part of the meal and mom would tease me to leave some for everyone else.

I will always miss mom who was one of my best friends.
I hope I can be a good of a mom as she in a million.

Love you Mom and miss you so much!

Joanne (Berend)


My Mom

The most beautiful soul, Mom’s smiles, hugs, laughter, guitar playing awesome.  All my memories of Mom never will forget.  Mom was there for me always and I believe still is.  Mom would listen and give good advice and say “don’t tell your dad” ha ha.  Every day I miss Mom more and more.  Heaven is better to have her there once again to show us the way.

Forever in my heart, Love you Mom



To mom. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother than you were. You always made me feel better if I was sad or feeling down about anything. I’m going to miss your loving ways and how you never judged me for things I did that you may not have agreed with. I’ll especially miss all your home cooked meals especially your turkey dinners and your sweet and sour meatballs and the light hearted conversations we had as a family at the dining room table.We will both miss your smile and laughter when I did something silly around you. I also really enjoyed tuning your guitar for you as I know how happy that made you feel. Most of All I miss you mom!

Love from Gerald and Christiline




  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Mary several years ago and although we only visited off and on during that time, I felt welcomed into her heart. She was so kind and gentle and I could tell she cared deeply for everyone and everything she did. I feel blessed to have known her if only for a short time. This world was a better place for having had her in it. May you be dancing with your angels where you are free from pain. You leave wonderful memories behind for your family whom you loved so dearly. May these memories give them strength and help them rejoice in the life they had with you. Blessings and deep condolences to Dick and your family.

    • Yes Maryann so sad and hard to grasp just what took place Mary is sadly missed for sure and the house and my heart are sadly empty thanks for your kind words

  2. Grandma

    Your path on earth is coming to a close but your journey is just about to start, you have inspired, cared for and loved so many people you will always be in our hearts and minds, you life was full of the best qualities you loved no matter the consequences, you inspired no matter how little of things it was about from the damn lemon squares to the meatballs I still can’t figure out, you touched every heart you came in contact with no matter if it was when working at the hospital or people you met for the first time at the annual BBQ you are loved by everyone, we will miss the witty comments and the time you slapped gina. However in the words of the great John Denver; Perhaps love is like a resting place, a shelter from the storm. It exists to give you comfort, it is there to keep you warm, and in those times of trouble when you are most alone, the memory of love will bring you home
    We love you and good bye
    This is the last thing I was able to say to you before you left, and it is just as true today as it was then. We will love you always and curse you every time we make the meatballs. You will have to help me now you can be there.

  3. Grandma,
    you and Grandpa helped to take care of me whenever I would come and visit Dad, and you took me in while I needed a place to stay while I moved from Grande Prairie to Edmonton.
    You always took care of us and made sure we have had delicious food, and clean socks 🙂 I always felt special when you made me my own caramel popcorn WITHOUT peanuts, and my children and I now enjoy making the chocolate teddy bear cookies.
    I am so grateful for the time we had together and that my children got to know their GREAT Grandmother. I pray you are now at peace in heaven, fully healed and more alive than ever.

    May all of us that are left to mourn your loss and celebrate your life, find peace and hope in God.

    Psalm 147:3
    New International Version
    3 He heals the brokenhearted
    and binds up their wounds.

    Psalm 34:18
    New International Version
    18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

    Romans 15:13
    New International Version
    13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

    Love your granddaughter and great-grandchildren, Becky (Sebastien), Sophie, Mya and Rylan.

      • Dear grandma,

        I will always remember the birthday cards, Christmas cards, and gifts you and grandpa sent down for us. It always made us feel very loved. Although I didnt get to see you much the times I did were always so special and I will keep them close to my heart. You were a hard working, lovely, and bright woman who took great care of those around you. I know you’re in a better place watching all those you loved and who loved you. ♥ We love you!
        Love Christine, Mark, and the kids.
