Mary (Mamie) Boyd Rae
Mamie, born August 1, 1926 in Glasgow, Scotland, passed away in her home on Thursday, June 13, 2013. She was predeceased by the love of her life, Harry Fraser; her brother, William Rae; and sister, Betty Grant.
The Fraser family immigrated to Canada in 1952 and resided in Kitchener, Ontario for many years. Mamie devoted her life to raising 6 children. She was a wonderful wife and mother, who took great pride in her appearance and made a happy loving home. Everyone was always welcome. Summer pool parties and winter vacations in Florida were highlights for Mamie.
In the early 90’s, they moved to Red Deer and reconnected with their daughters and grandchildren. Grandma attended many a sport event and special occasion. She never forgot a birthday and was always willing to play a game. When Harry passed away, Mamie became an independent woman and moved out on her own. She made many good friends at Wedgewood and then Parkland Gardens. Mamie traveled to Mexico, Alaska and B.C. Everyone enjoyed her sense of humor and most of all her company.
Mamie always said,
“If I go tomorrow, I know I’ve had a great life”
You sure did and you were a great lady.
Mamie will forever remain in the hearts of her children: daughter, Irene Fraser; son, George Fraser;, daughter, Linda (Wayne) Eastcott; daughter, Carol Fraser; daughter, Diane (Patrick) Blinkhorn; son, Scott (Sheryl) Fraser; and her grandchildren: Brad Rominger, Shaun Rominger, Stephanie McFarlane, Alanna Eastcott, Jenna Collard, Jacob Collard, Marshall Blinkhorn, Wes (Rhonda) Blinkhorn, Jamieson (Kayla) Blinkhorn, Shannon Fraser and Liam Fraser.
A Celebration of Mamie’s Life will be held on Friday, June 28, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at Red Deer Funeral Home, 6150 – 67 Street, Red Deer, Alberta.
