POWELL , Mary Isabelle (Yelland) 1919 - 2009 It was early on Friday morning, July 17, that Mary Powell died following a short illness and we miss her terribly. She leaves to mourn her passing two daughters: Marilyn (and David) Marven of Oshawa, Ontario and Evelyn (and Doug) Powell of Okotoks, Alberta and one son Tom (and Betty) Powell of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, twelve grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Mary was predeceased by Dwight, her husband of sixty-five years, her brother Sherm and her sisters Elizabeth Yelland and Flora Pinder. Mary was born in Mountain Park, Alberta and grew up in Cadomin. She attended Grade 12 and Normal School in Edmonton. She collected many memories teaching in a one room school near Faucette, AB. After marrying Dwight she continued her lifelong journey of volunteering with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, delivering Meals-on-Wheels and leading exercises for seniors. In the past fifteen years she knit in excess of 1500 toques for newborns at the High River Hospital. Mary worked tirelessly in United Churches in Cadomin, Acme, Calgary, Nanton, Edmonton and Banff. The family wish to offer our sincere thanks for the care our mother received while a resident at the Father Lacombe Care Centre, Calgary, at the Silver Willow Lodge and Madison Manor in Nanton. A Celebration of Mary's Life will take place in the Nanton-Parkland United Church, Saturday, July 25, at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations to The United Church Mission and Service Fund or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. To email condolences to the family please visit . Arrangements have been entrusted to SNODGRASS FUNERAL HOMES (Okotoks). Telephone: 403-938-3111. Published in the Calgary Herald on 7/20/2009
