It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mary Louise Carmichael (nee Gordon) on Friday July 18, 2014. Mary died peacefully, surrounded by her family at Royal Inland Hospital. She will be lovingly remembered and missed by her husband of 45 years, Brian, and her children Colin (Heather) and Mathew. Mary was born in Cranbrook BC in 1944, to James and Ann Gordon. Along with five brothers (Dennis, Jack, Alan, Ian, Jim) and one sister (Noreen), Mary was raised in a loving family full of faith, friendship, and support. She leaves her sister, Noreen Kennedy, brothers Dennis (Mary Anne), Jack (Beth), and Alan (Karen), and sisters-in-law Catherine Gordon and Sandi Gordon. She also leaves behind beloved nephews and nieces, cousins, and friends.
Nothing made Mary happier than spending time with her family. She both loved to hear a good story and to spin one herself. She will always be remembered for her generosity, her warmth, her wonderful sense of humour, and her fantastic laugh. A celebration of Mary’s life will take place Saturday, July 26, 2014 at Schoening Funeral Home in Kamloops, B.C. at 2 p.m., followed by a reception.
