There are also 23 great-grandchildren & 1 great-great grandchild & respective spouses. Mary was born at Liebenthal Sk, Tuesday, Dec 28, 1915. She started her education at a country school in the Leader area and was about 13 when her family moved to Wilkie and she finished her schooling there. She earned her living cleaning houses for other people and gained a reputation as a good & hard worker. Earning .12/hr, she earned enough to buy all her necessary furnishings to set up home before she got married. She married Emil Frey June 21, 1937 and they farmed in the Starview (Wilkie) area until 1954 when they moved to their own farm in the Kerrobert area. Mary was very well known for her huge & prolific gardens as well as her fabulous cooking/baking. She was well known here for her kindness & compassion. Once her family was grown & gone, she retired & fostered her passion for flowers & gardening even more. Family was her greatest passion & she was happiest when surrounded by her family. In 1985, Mary moved to Saskatoon with her husband due to his failing health but she quickly became immersed in the social life of her seniors’ apartment block and made many new friends. Her subsequent moves to Caleb Manor Assisted Living and Extendicare also brought about more friends.
