Mary Yarrow

May 14, 1929 - June 26, 2021


It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Mary Yarrow (Kohorst) on June 26th at the age of 92. She was surrounded by family at The Residence in Mission in her final days after a brief illness.

Mary will be lovingly remembered by her husband of nearly 60 years, Henry. Daughters: Darlene, Angie, and Kathy. Grandchildren: Cheri, Christine, Michael, Courtney, and Tyler. Great Grandchildren: William, Robert, Willow, and Everett. As well as numerous family and friends.

Mary was predeceased by her parents, Henry and Hazel. Brothers: Bruce, Charlie, William, Walter, and Robert. Sisters: Ivy and Olive.

Mary was born in the beautiful Columbia Valley, a place she affectionately called home and would frequently visit throughout her life. Eventually, she moved to the Fraser Valley where she met her husband Henry, started her family, and lived the remainder of her life.

Mary worked an assortment of jobs, but fondly recalled delivering papers for the Vancouver Sun. She took pride in her independence. However, her true devotion was to her family and friends. She was affectionately called mom/grandma not only by her own children/grandchildren, but by their friends and anyone who had the pleasure to be taken under the wing of this extraordinary woman. She could be stubborn at times, but her heart was big and full of generosity. Her home was always open, and she always had room for a passenger (especially for a road trip). If you needed anything (e.g., a hot lunch, a new pair of shoes), Mary would make sure you got it and often kept her change for those in need. She also enjoyed bowling and playing Yahtzee.

The family would like to thank Dr. Bhatt as well as the staff at The Residence in Mission for your care and compassion.

A celebration of life will be held at a future date by family in the Columbia Valley where she (at her own request) will be laid to rest with her parents.
