Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory

“Good night, dear heart,
Goodnight goodnight”
- Mark Twain

Mary Roberta Price will be remembered as a woman of grace, elegance, gentleness, and faithfulness. She was predeceased by her husband Mel Price, her parents David and Alice Forbes, and her five siblings Leonard, Ruby, David, Ian, and Wayne. She leaves behind a loving extended family, chosen family, and church family. Growing up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Mary worked for over 25 years for Eatons and transferred with them to Victoria, B.C where she met her husband Mel. Mary and Mel enjoyed flying together in his airplane and lived in the countryside together before his passing. Although Mary had no children of her own, she was a beloved auntie and grandmother figure to many. Sweet like the smell of fresh flowers, soft like her precious feline companions, classic and timeless like her exquisite handwriting - her life leaves a lasting mark on our hearts. We hold her memory dear, but rejoice in her resting peace. Thank-you to all those that cared for her in her final years.

Well done, good and faithful servant… Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” MAT. XXV. 21

I will always cherish those once a week luncheons that I had with Aunt Mary, Aunt Ruby and my dad, Dave. They would always make me laugh and I always had a story to tell at the end of the day. Love you forever. Rest in peace. Janet

The first time I met Mary was in May of 1971, in Colwood, BC, at her home she shared with her parents. Her niece Roberta and I were married recently at the time. That was the first time I met so many new in-laws. Mary was a tall, slim, kind looking lady. She was affable and made me feel at ease, and she quickly offered me a glass of wine. She then proudly said "I made this wine myself". Our many meetings, including many times with her husband Mel, were always warm and loving. When our baby daughter Leona arrived a few years later, Aunt Mary would always play with her with kindness and affection.
