Mary Berscheid



It is with sadness that the family of Mary Josephine Berscheid announces her peaceful passing on December 29, 2017 in Edmonton, Alberta at 98 years of age. Mom was born on the Geenen homestead near Muenster, Saskatchewan to the late Joseph & Mary Geenen on May 29, 1919. She was predeceased by her 5 brothers & sisters, Anna, Joseph, Theodore, Agnes & Martha. Mary married Mathias Joseph Berscheid in 1944 and they raised 8 children, Terrance, Donna Mae, Rodney, Gordon, Aeriol, Darlene, Darcy, and Melody.

Mary was a woman of deep faith who lived her entire life in the pursuit of religious principles. Her lifelong thirst for learning led her in many directions, as a registered nurse, artist, gardener and as a florist creating floral arrangements in her flower shop, Rosetown Florists, to name a few.

Mary was predeceased by her husband, Mathias on May 21, 1974; son, Rodney Thomas Berscheid on January 11, 1971 and son-in-law, William Russell Stinson on October 10, 2015.
