Mary Stevens Obituary

Mary L Stevens, born in Kindersley to Charles and Beatrice McQuarrie (nee Knight) passed away at the age of 97 on August 12th at Eatonia Sk.  Mary was predeceased by husband John Stevens, second husband Tom Keslick, daughter Susan Stevens and great-granddaughter Taylor Specht. Mary was a loving mother to four children, Judy (Rick), Jeffrey (Coralynne), Susan (Harold), and Veronica (David).

Mary also leaves behind grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and in-laws

who remember her fondly. The Gross, Keslick, Klarenbach, McQuarrie, Roger and Wingerak families were held close. Mary was predeceased by many immediate family, in-laws and others she cared for.

Mary grew up south of Fairmont (near Kindersley) and attended Prince Edward School with her brothers Bill and Allan McQuarrie. Mary completed a business course after high school and worked in “banking” in nearby towns.

For more than forty years after her marriage to John in 1949, Mary lived just south of Laporte.

She led a busy family, farm, and community life, before she and John acquired their retirement home in Kindersley. John sadly passed away soon after in December 1992 at age 65. Mary married Tom Keslick in April 1996. They had several happy years together.

Mary was a long-standing member of the United Church and the Order of the Eastern Star. Her passions were dancing, especially square dancing, and cards, especially bridge. She took pride in looking her best, and frequently promoted exercise to anyone who would listen. Mary was a lifelong learner, taking various local and distance education classes and a “special care aide” course at age 58. She stayed a farmer at heart who enjoyed annual combine outings with family until harvest 2022. While riding on the combine, she would offer friendly farming advice and closely observe the yield monitors.

Mary moved to “Caleb Kindersley” in May 2014. She had an active life there for eight-plus years before moving to Eatonia Oasis Living.

Mary lived a generous full life well into her golden years. She had an independent spirit, a life filled with love, laughter, and friendship.
