It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Mary Stuckey of Pincher Creek who was called home to God’s Kingdom on January 13, 2020.
Mary was preceded in death by her mother, Emily (Millie), her father, Frank, her husband, Midge, and her son, Evan. She is survived by her daughter, Susan, her grandchildren, Daniel, Meaghan, and Nicole, and her great grandchildren, Kylie, Leah, Troy, Jaxson, and Knox, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Mary was born in Taber and spent the first 10 years of her life in Turin. Her family eventually moved east to Pincher Creek. Mary spent the remainder of her years here with her family. After many years of being a homemaker, she decided to buy a local courier company in town. She drove the mail, parcels, people and pets for 27 years between Pincher Creek and Waterton National Park. Over the years, Mary developed many friendships through her work that continued long after retirement. Following the death of her husband in 2006, Mary decided to hang up the keys to her trusty blue van.
Mary had a passion for travel and a zest for life. She travelled to Europe many times with her husband Midge and continued her solo adventures in later years, making lifelong friends along the way. She particularly loved her travels to visit her dear friend, Beate Herrmann, in Switzerland and Germany. Mary sought out adventure and revelled in pushing her nerves as far as she could while travelling 13 times to Mexico with her daughter. During a recent holiday in Puerto Vallarta, Mary was suspended high above the Pacific Ocean, parasailing by herself, all while her daughter watched from the beach in awe. If she wasn't parasailing she was ziplining through the canopy of the jungle. This is just who Mary was.
We know you are planning your next adventure in heaven while you watch over us. Until we meet again.
“Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality”. – Emily Dickinson
