ARDELLI
FERN MARY ARDELLI (nee Gullacher), October 10, 1926 -July 19, 2014 seventh child of eight born to Petra
and Wilbur Gullacher, at Govan, Saskatchewan. Mary received her early education at Constance School while
living on the family farm. Later she took two years high school at Simpson then graduated from City Park
Cellegiate in Saskatoon. Twice she attempted nursing school but, after injuries to her back, had to give
up her dream of helping others. After raising her three sons, she returned to school and graduated from
Lethbridge Community College with a certificate in General Secretairal Science. Mary counted her moving
to be over 60 times in Ontario, Sakatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. Mary was predeceased by her
mother in 1937, father 1974 sisters, Fay 1973, Laurine 1983, Alva 2003, brothers, Earl 1985, Wilfred
1994, Orville 1998 and Curtis 1999.
She leaves to mourn her sons Dr. Gerard (Kathryn) McLane of Portland, Oregon, Jay (Darlene) McLane of
Lethbridge and Michael (Jill) McLane of Calgary, four grandchildren Melissa (Trent) Horst of Honeybrook,
Pennsylvania, Stephen (Casey) McLane of Johnson City, Tennessee, Jonathan McLane of Berrien Springs,
Michigan and Diane Legault (Brendan Nalder) of Lethbridge, AB and three great grandchildren; Kaleigh and
Mason Horst, Kaitlyn Nalder and another soon to be born great-granddaughter.
Fern Mary spent her life trying to help others and must have helped furnish a dozen homes for people. If
she had something in her home and someone needed it, they got it. She loved to travel and went across
Canada, United States, Mexico, Europe, Singapore and Malaysia. In later years she disliked flying and
travelled wherever her car would take her. Sometimes her car was known to be flying but only once was
told to slow down by an RCMP officer, however many times by her children. She would say she could never
see the sense of taking an hour to get somewhere when she could do it in much less time.
She was a long time faithful member of the Catholic Women’s League of Canada and always enjoyed working
with this group whenever possible. She also enjoyed working with the Mission and development group at her
church and for some years instigated the making of quilts for the missions. She also organized the
collection of the gifts for Harbor House at Christmas.
She hopes to be remembered as a prayerful, loving mother and grandmother, as being a loving faithful
friend who tried to love all.

“Jesus has been visiting my house for many years, now I think it is time I visited His house. Amen”
