Mary Ginter

Mary Ginter was born

in Blumehof, a small town in

Saskatchewan, to John and

Maria Klassen on March 19,

1933. She was predeceased

by brother John in 1955,

father in 1979, husband

Jake in 1991 and mother in

1997. The Klassen family

moved to B.C. in 1942, this is

where Mary spent all of her

childhood years and most of

her adult life. She worked as a

nurses aid at St. John Hospital

for a number of years, living in

a small cabin near the hospital.

Mary then moved to Manitoba in the late 1950’s where she met and married Jake Ginter. They had a son Kenneth Peter born in Dryden Ont. Mary and Jake and Kenneth moved to B.C. in 1960. After many fi shing and hunting trips and buying a small

farm Sharon, Donald, Darlene and Elisa were born. The kids in return blessed them with 18 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.

In March of 2007 Mary had a slight stroke that impaired the use of her left leg. Getting around was diffi cult, so a wheelchair was introduced, taking away her independence that she enjoyed

all her life. Her kids and grand kids pitched in to help. To make life easier for Mary and everyone around her Mary and Buddy the bird moved into Elisa and Brad’s house where someone was

always on hand to help with any and everything.

In the early morning hours of August 11,

2007 Mary passed away quietly at St. John
