Obituary of Mary Lougheed
Mary Baird Lougheed was born October 31st, 1925. She passed away peacefully at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital early morning May 29, 2019. Loving wife of Jack Lougheed for almost 67 years. Loving mother to Richard (Margaret), Peter (Jan), Kathy (Jim) and Barb (Dave) and grandmother of 9 special grandchildren and 11 wonderful great-grandchildren. During World War II Mary served as a WREN in the Canadian Navy. Later, she trained as a nurse at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Following that, she nursed at the Toronto Sick Kids Hospital, Vancouver General and Arnprior Hospital. After marriage in 1952, she served with her husband, Jack, who was a United Church minister in Pelly, Saskatchewan. She and Jack served as missionaries in India from 1954 to 1959. Then they had pastorates in Kirkland Lake and Shawinigan, Quebec. They lived in Oshawa from 1968 to 1980 and then had a final pastorate in Almonte from 1980 to 1988. In 1988, they retired to the Kedey Baird House in Fitzroy Harbour where she was born beside her beloved Ottawa River. She was a talented artist, knitter, sewer and gardener, and brought her keen sense of design and colour to every project she took on. She was also an historian who wrote a wonderful history of her family and Fitzroy Harbour. She had a whimsical sense of humour and a young spirit that never grew old. We will miss her deeply.
