Mary Bruce Carson

Mary Bruce Carson passed away peacefully on January 24, 2013 at Durand Manor, Golden, BC, at age 84. She will be sadly missed by her family: Sharon Glass Calgary AB, Mervyn Schacher (Audrey) Lantzville BC, Rick Schacher (Anna) Parson BC, Val Roberts (Orval) Spillimacheen BC, Brenda Schuck (Ray) Golden BC, step-son John Carson (Vivian) Nanaimo BC, step-son Ed Carson Windermere BC, step-daughter Patsy Godlien Wilmer BC, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her parents Mary and Joseph Bissett, sister Joyce Robertson, husband Jack (2003), son Dean (1992) and grandson Ryan (1997).

Born in East End SK, and receiving her schooling there, she then moved to BC and then ended up settling in Parson BC. Mary lived in Parson for 50 odd years with her husband and raising her children. After her family was grown and left home, she was proud of her accomplishments getting her GED and her driver’s license. After getting her driver’s license she bought herself a car and got a job, working a number of years before retiring. Music was a large part of her life, playing guitar, singing and yodelling. The Parson farm was notoriously known for great house parties.

The family would like to thank the staff at Durand Manor, her special friends who would stop by every Sunday to visit her, and Bowers Funeral Home. Cremation and graveside memorial to be held April 27, 2013.
