Leaving the farm after grade 8, she worked in Winnipeg for several years before marrying Peter Bellows of Hyas, Saskatchewan in 1937. Together they were blessed with four children, David, Sharon, Beverley and Barbara. Farming alongside Peter was a great joy for Mary, and they worked together as partners on their farm. Finally, illness brought a sad separation for them last September. Their marriage of 72 years was a happy union characterized by love and forgiveness. Mary's family was very important to her and each member felt her love and acceptance. She loved her extended family, and her brothers and sisters in faith. All who sat at her table enjoyed her delicious food, and often were sent away with the fruits of her labours, a jar of her delicious jam or produce from her garden. Mary was a gracious homemaker, inviting any who came into the yard, for coffee or a meal. She cultivated beautiful flower beds and raised a large, productive garden. She taught her children an orderly way to live especially in regard to keeping a neat and tidy house and yard, and role modelled for them the giving of selfless love to others. Mary was a woman with a servant's heart. She served selflessly, never complaining about hard work, unending farm chores or household tasks. She loved God and always served Him in her daily life and in the Church community. Mary leaves behind her beloved husband, Peter; her son, David (Sharon) and their children, Brad (Karen) and Curt (Cia); her daughter, Sharon (Len) and their children, Treena, Tim (Celia) and Matt (Jill); her daughter, Beverley (deceased) (Dan) and their children, Kim (deceased), Renee (Al), and Daniel (Nikita); and her daughter, Barbara (Chesley) and their children, Adam (Lindsay), James (Erin); and six great grandchildren, Runa, Aidan, Noah, Rowen, Quinn or Orion; and many other family members and friends.
