Mary Fretz (Montague)
Born in Willoughby, Ontario to James and Katherine Montague (Predeceased). Mary married her husband Vernon (Bud) Fretz on August 20, 1943 (predeceased June 6, 2016). Mary is survived by her six daughters: Judith (Ian) Robertson, Marion Fretz, Patricia (Leslie) Doey, Lynda (Keith) Collins, Margaret (Randall) Orr and Janice (Kareem) Kadhim. She is also proudly survived by her 18 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren (2 more to arrive), and 4 great-great-grandchildren (1 more to arrive). Her legacy lives on and may they all have happy, healthy lives. Mary is also survived by her brother Donald (Iris) Montague, her sister Shirley (Walt) Doey, her brother-in-law Peter Chupa and her sister-in-law Lorna Montague. She was predeceased by her brothers; William, Arnold, John and Joseph and her sister Marion, Margaret, Gladys and Ruby. She also leaves behind many other relatives and her many church friends, who were an integral part of her life. Mary was a stay-at-home mom until she trained as a RPN at the age of 54 and worked at the Golden Manor for several years. The family would also like to take this opportunity to thank the many caregivers over the last three months for their compassion and care that enabled her to remain in her home as she wanted.
Respecting her wishes, cremation has taken place. Funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the Covenant United Church followed by a reception at the church. In lieu of flowers, remembrance donations to the Covenant United Church or Timmins and District Hospital would be greatly appreciated.
