Passed away unexpectedly and peacefully on Feb 3, 2005 at the age of 81.

Beloved wife of Edgar Featherstone. Pre-deceased by her brother John, sister Sadie Lothian and dear Aunt Queenie, all of Scotland. Loving mother to sons John (Laura Jean) of Toronto and Paul (Kathey Anne) of Calgary. Devoted Grandmother to Devin Thomas, of Prince George and Marin Leah, of Calgary. Will be sadly missed by her sister Jean Hannay (Dan), niece Jane Brown (Edward), nephew John Hannay (Michelle) and families in England. Will be fondly remembered by her cousins Anne McNaughton and Hicks Goldie (Hugh) in Toronto, her many Featherstone nieces and nephews in Australia and New Zealand and all of her friends across Canada.

Born in Wishaw, Scotland, Mary trained as a nurse and midwife in Glasgow, eventually moving to Hull, England as a Queen’s Nurse.

 Personal Notes


Hi Edgar;
I am so sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I have many fond thoughts of both of you...the letters and clippings you would mail to me. The visits to your apartment at tax time. The lovely conversations.
I have thought about you both often over the past couple of years, and lamented how I haven't kept up in touch with you.
I hope you are doing well, Edgar. I send you my love in this terrible time of sorrow.
Love, Cathy Mombourquette
