October 31 to Jan 16
Mary passed away suddenly and peacefully on January 30th to be with the Lord. She was 84 years old and often stated that she had already been blessed with a “good life” and was ready to go whenever she was called.
She is survived by her children, Larry (Carol) Kozuback of Qualicum Beach and Cathy (Tom) Scott from the BC interior, and Five grandchildren, Jason, Daniel, David, Paul and Dale. She is predeceased by her husband, Rolf Tollefsen and brother John Putio.
Mary was very active in her time in the Comox Valley being involved in the hiking and dance clubs, golfing and volunteering with Senior Peer Counseling and Hospice. She also loved to garden, cook (especially for family) and cross country ski. Mary took up painting in her later years and was a consummate scrabble player. She will be missed deeply.
Graveside service was held in Qualicum Beach on Feb 4th.
Donations in Mary’s memory may be made to the Hospice Society.
