December 2 ,1930 - July 19, 2020
With heart felt sadness I’m sorry to announce the passing of my dear sister and friend Mary Enns on July 19, 2020.
Mary was born near Sarto, Manitoba on December 2, 1930 and moved to Winnipeg in her late teens where a friend introduced her to the love of her life Albert John (Al). Mary and Al were married in 1961.
Mary enjoyed travelling and was fortunate to see most of Canada while Al’s bowling team represented Manitoba and Canada in many Canadian and World 5-Pin Bowling competitions.
Mary enjoyed cooking and oﬀering good advice and to everyone even when you may not be looking for it! Throughout her life Mary enjoyed clothes and fashion. Mary’s closet, drawers and storage bins were always well stocked (overﬂowing) as a tribute to her being a fashionista!
Mary had may careers including a stance as a candy maker at the Nutty Club Candy Factory. Ultimately she obtained a job as a waste inspector at the Kimberly Clark Plant. Mary was an employee of the company for over 25 years until the plant was closed amid cries for all Manitobans to boycott all Kimberly Clark products. Throughout her life Mary had the courage and strength to endure many setbacks and disappointments.
Mary lost the love of her life in 1985 and I’m sure she has a smile on her face knowing she will now be able to join Al in heaven.
Mary was predeceased by her parents (Barbara & Fred Minsky), her brother Mike (Jean) and leaves to mourn her brother Garry, her sister-in-law Etta and many friends & family.
Mary I especially enjoyed our get togethers each week and I will miss going grocery shopping and running errands for you. But I will also miss watching Lets Make a Deal with you with a cup of instant coﬀee and a donut the most! (I’ll take curtain 3…)
Mary we love you and miss you already.
At Mary’s request, her cremation has taken place and Mary will be laid to rest with her best friend Al at Brookside Cemetery. A private Celebration of Mary’s Life will follow at a later date.
In lieu of ﬂowers a donation can be made to a charity of your choice.
