Mary Hammond Carlson (nee Smith)
August 9, 1920 – August 17, 2014
Mary passed away peacefully in Fort Langley, B.C. surrounded by family. She will be missed by her daughters Sue and Lynda (John), son Richard (Kim), grandson Ben (Yvonne), great grandchildren Isabelle and Samuel.
She was predeceased by her husband Walter in 1999.
Mary and Walter moved with their family to Saltspring in 1963, and stayed in their summer cottage for 45 years. Mary enjoyed golfing, playing bridge, and rambling with the Trail and Nature group. She volunteered weekly in the library and at the Lady Minto Auxiliary Thrift Shop for years and years.
A woman of great wit, Mary loved working in her garden, building rock walls, and fighting off the deer.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimers Society of B.C. would be gratefully appreciated.
