With sad hearts
we announce the
Mary (Reimer) Loxterkamp on December 9, 2007 at G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital.
Mary was born on February 12, 1925 at Great Deer, Sask. She was the 6th of 12 children born to Peter and Edith Reimer.
She met Ossie Loxterkamp in New Westminster and they were married on February 12, 1946. For two years they had a service station in Chilliwack and then moved to Quesnel. They ran a milling business until they could buy the land to create a farm.
In 1976 they retired on 10 acres of the farm where Mary remained until going into hospital.
Mary was a loving, kind and gentle woman. She loved to garden, knit, crochet, sew, travel and go for walks. She, along with Ossie raised six children, had 16 grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Her love and friendship will be sorely missed.
She was predeceased by her husband Ossie in 2000 and her son Earl in 1968. She was also predeceased by her parents and nine of her siblings.
She is survived by her son Alvin (Arlene), grandchildren Lloyd and Amanda, daughter Connie (Terry) Borowsky, grandchildren Curtis (Lynette), Mary, Alisa (Boy), Paul, great grandchildren Elizabeth, Connor, Morgan and Ashley, daughter Irene Whitmore (Kent Smith), grandchildren Jeff Hall (Courtney), Gerry, great grandchild Ryder, son Wayne, grandchildren Dustin, Ossie, Kyle, Ian and Jessica, daughter Ruby Derksen, grandchildren Emily, Janelle and Vanessa, sisters Helen Newman and Wilma Unrau.
