Mary Armstrong (Mollie) McArthur passed away suddenly on June 12, two weeks short of l02 years. Mollie immigrated as a baby from Derbyshire, UK to Edmonton where she spent her first 25 years. She moved with her parents to Greenwood for her next 50 years and retired to Victoria for another quarter century. She lived her last year closer to family in Burnaby. Mollie was predeceased by her husband Teddy, daughter Lynda, grand-daughter Danielle, and son-in-law Herb Latreille. She is survived by her children Sandra Latreille, Ross (Sue), Lynn (Jan), Neil and son-in-law Lyle Chiasson. Also left to grieve are her 7 grandchildren, their spouses and 13 great-grandchildren, three nephews and their families, and many extended family members in England and the United States. Mollie’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life and she enjoyed all visits, their photographs and many drawings and letters which she collected over the years. She never forgot a special occasion for family or close friends as she loved to send cards and letters.
