Obituary

Mary was born Maria Anna Kilar on March 16, 1934 in Frains, Alberta of Jozef and Emilia Kilar. To her siblings and parents, she was fondly referred to as Marishonek. Raised in a farm house full of deep love and faith in Christ, her early years were spent in school, work, prayer, and in the company of her beloved siblings, Frances, Cecilia, Joseph, Rose, Avita, Lucy and Angie.

Nursing as a vocation called Mary in time to Inuvik, NWT where she met the love of her life, Lyle Lavender. They were married on August 1, 1964 and prospered through hard work, determination, love and faith. As time passed, the years brought the addition of brothers and sisters-in-law, and many cherished nephews and nieces.

Through Gods grace, Mary and Lyle were granted three children: Lucille, Patricia and Theresa. In time they also welcomed their sons-in-law, Patrick (Harrower) and James (Faraday), and another gift of God, her grandchildren: Nathaniel, Rebecca and Aaron.

Mary loved us all with an open heart and loving embrace, “for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
