Mary Grey

March 29, 1929 – February 14, 2022

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Mary Grey on February 14, 2022 at McKinney Place, Oliver, BC at the age of 92.

Mary was predeceased by her parents, John and Anna Proniuk, husbands Alvin Brown, Marvin Grey, best friend Bill Stannard and grandson Monty Brown.

Mary will be lovingly remembered by sister, Jenny McElroy; sons, Stan (Doris), Ron (Judy), Craig (Zsuzsanna), Rob (Diana); daughter, Janice Magee (Rocky); stepchildren, Deb Keet (Larry) and Rod Grey; grandchildren, Levi, Luke, Jason, Tiffany, Jenn, Brian, Doug, Mitch, Adam, Alex, Stefan, Jessica; great- grandchildren, Eli, Kade, Teagan and Leah and nieces and nephews.

Mary was born in Lethbridge and spent her childhood years in Shaughnessy. Mary and Alvin met in Lethbridge where they married and started their family. Mary and Alvin were active square dancers, travelling to square dance competitions in Penticton and elsewhere. Mary lost her loving husband, Alvin, at an early age, leaving her alone to raise her family of five. She started work with Canada Safeway where she quickly advanced to the level of Head Cashier. In 1971, Mary met and married Marvin Grey. Mary and Marvin loved to golf and travel, visiting family and friends in Alberta and BC and often escaping winter to the US. Mary also visited her parents’ homeland, travelling to the Ukraine and Russia. After many years with Safeway, Mary retired and moved to Oliver. She continued to travel, was very active in the golf community, line danced and did aqua size until age 90.

Mary was very outgoing, easily chatting with others wherever she went. She made friends easily and kept in touch throughout the years. Mary was a very vibrant, witty and caring person.

The family send their heartfelt appreciation to her dear friend, George Debenham and all the staff of McKinney Place for their care and support.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Lethbridge at a later date.

HARAGA

John (Johnny) passed away peacefully at St. Michael’s Health Center on Thursday, February 24, 2022 at the age of 94.

Dad was born in Velka Lubela, Czechoslovakia in 1927. At the age of 3 weeks old, Dad’s father, Izidor immigrated to Canada to work in the coal mines and for the CPR. In 1935 Dad and his mother, Zuzana immigrated to Canada to be reunited with his Father. Dad took his schooling in Skiff and in 1950 attended S.A.I.T. in Calgary to take a welding course. Following that he continued to farm until he retired and moved to Lethbridge in 1999.

A man of simple pleasures with a touch of mischief thrown in. Dad was not a flashy man, and didn’t care to travel. He enjoyed fishing, but most of all he loved farming and driving his favourite 835 Versatile tractor to go summer fallowing with the radio off and a bag of sunflower seeds beside him. Dad loved playing with his grandkids and great-grandkids, which brought a twinkle to his eye and a smirk on his face. Dad will be sadly missed, but fondly remembered.

John is survived by his lovely wife of 69 years, Alice and sister, Helen Whittaker. He is predeceased by his parents Izidor & Zuzana Haraga and brothers Rudy and Arnold.

Father to Joyce Ito (Roy), Brenda Sorge (Tom), Ken Haraga (Trish) and Bob Haraga (Deb); grandfather to Brody, Aubree (Brennon), Cayle (Colleen), Devon (Brock), Erin (Kodie), Carmen (Matt), Linsay (Jason), Tyler (Nancy), Adam, Amanda (Danny) and Austin; great-grandfather to Mila, Ryley, Koji, Tanner, Gavin, Nash, Tate, Tommy, Lucas, Aiden, Ava, Bril, Willah, Gus, Liam and Palmer.

A private family funeral service will be held on Thursday, March 3, 2022 at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME. Dad will be laid to rest at Archmount Cemetery. In lieu of flowers memorial tributes can be made in John’s name to Diabetes Canada (crm2.diabetes.ca) or the Alzheimer Society of Alberta (alzheimer.ca).
