It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Mary Godwin on July 7th, 2020. She passed away peacefully at the Rockyview General Hospital at the age of 86 years old.
Mary was always lovingly devoted to her children; Casey, Gay (Dwain), Mark (Gail), and Randy. She was a loving grandmother to Lee, Kristel, Doug, Randy JR, Patricia, Mel, Kayley, Alexandra, Keanu, Celena, Mitchell, Alisha, Brooke, Jenna Lynn and Rachelle, and a wonderful great-grandmother to Dominic, Charlie, Elle, Sam, Kenzie, Ryder and Beau.
Mary married Mike Sorckoff later in life and had extended family out east, whom she loved dearly for many years; Cathleen Sorckoff, Susan Steeves (Michael), Cindy Legault (Joseph), and Patricia Albert (Daniel).
From humble beginnings to working at Safeway for many years, owning her jewelry store, and becoming Ladies Auxiliary President at the Royal Canadian Legion 285, Mary lived a full and generous life always making time for others and donating to numerous charities. She lived life to the fullest. When you met her, she made an impression. Mary was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman that had many friends.
We will miss her every day. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Condolences from family and friends

So saddened to read about Mary’s passing. She was my mom’s best friend growing up. I always loved her laugh! She never once forgot to send us Christmas cards and birthday cards one for myself, my husband, our son and our daughter. They were always looked forward to the way she decorated the envelope with stickers ! 💖
