<div itemprop="description">ATKINSON, Mary <br>1930 - 2017 <br> <br>With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Mary Atkinson on January 5, 2017 at the age of 86. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones. Raised with good old rural Saskatchewan values, Mary radiated kindness, generosity and commitment to family and friends. After years of parenting 5 children, and later a whirlwind of world travel, she had a full and rich life, accumulating close connections at home and around the world. Her dedication to family has left us all with not only warm memories, but with the experience of what it means to be truly loved by a woman of great compassion, commitment and integrity. The highlight of her life was her 66 year marriage to her loving husband Fred Atkinson, who will miss her dearly. Their love will be a lasting inspiration to us all. <br> <br>Mary was predeceased by her mother, Mary Mcleary, daughter Barbara Atkinson, grandson Spencer Atkinson and granddaughter Crystal DenBeste. She leaves behind her loving husband Fred Atkinson, her four children Lynn DenBeste (Jim), Judy Atkinson, Gary Atkinson (Kathy) and Gail Poffenroth (Brian), eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Mary is now in perfect peace resting in the arms of Jesus and experiencing the glory of Heaven. <br> <br>The family would like to thank the caregivers from the AHS Palliative Care Team (Angel) and the Manor at Rocky Ridge for their compassionate care. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, February 10, 2017 at the Cochrane Bow Valley Baptist Church (54 West Arsby Road, Cochrane) at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, we request donations be sent to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, (, Toll Free 1-866-353-1847 or mail donation to 200, 119 - 14 Street NW Calgary AB T2N 1Z6, make note in memory of Mary Atkinson) or to the Cochrane Alliance Church Building Fund, (403-932-6100 ext 0 for Reception, or email <br> <br></div>
