Mary was born at Champion Creek, B. C., on February 22, l925 to William Andrew Kavaloff and Molly (Malekow) Kavaloff. She went to school there and met the love of her life, her future husband Sam who would carry her school books for her. They grew up together and were later married at Champion Creek, on October 28, 1944. They started their family there and eventually moved to Blueberry Creek, where they put their heart and soul into raising Sam, Marie and Jim. The family benefited from the large garden Mary and Sam always planted.

Mary was a very feisty lady whose generosity, love and kindness touched all of us. Her love for her family and friends was evident in how she treated people. Mary was meticulous in her habits, she had a place for everything and everything was always in its place. Mary loved the time spent having coffee with friends and family at A&W. She also greatly enjoyed the bus trips she took to various places. Watching game shows on tv were one of her favorite past times, especially the “Wheel”, she was very good at solving the puzzles.

Mary was predeceased by her parents, her loving husband Sam and infant son Harry.

Mary is survived by her much loved children Sam (Carrol), Marie (Joe) and Jim (Marnita). Also survived by her brothers Bill (Flo), John (Emma), Paul (June). Left behind also are her much adored grandchildren and great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral Services were officiated by pastor Dwight Soleski at the Pentecostal New Life Assembly on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 followed by interment at Brilliant Cemetery.

Arrangements were in care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel.
