Skura, Mary

Our mother, Mary Skura (nee: Kochan) passed away quietly on August 29, 2020 in Kitchener, at the age of 100. Predeceased by her husband Michael (1998) and siblings Pearl, Anne, Nick, Kay, Alex and Bill. Mary leaves behind siblings, Joe, Helen, Elizabeth and Eddy as well as son Jim (Sally), grandson Chris (Shelley), great-grandchildren Jessica, Nicholas and Brittany, grandson David (Ingrid), great-grandchildren Benjamin, Calvin, Julianne (Marcus) great-great-grandson Malcom, granddaughter Natasha (Dale), great-grandchildren Abigail, Josh, granddaughter Allana and her daughter Maddy; son Harry (Beatrice) grandson Michael and his daughter Juliete, granddaughter Eva, granddaughter Anna (Thomas) along with great grandson Max, plus grandson Marcel (Rebecca); son Bob (Sharon) and daughter Joan. 

Mom was fortunate enough to enjoy excellent health until her final day. In fact, two days before passing she baked bread and made perogies without assistance in her own home. 

As a practical woman, Mom would have said "What good are flowers to me now?" so in lieu of sending flowers we suggest you make a donation to the charity of your choice or perform an act of kindness for an unsuspecting soul. 

Mary's family will receive relatives and friends from 6:00pm-8:00pm on Tuesday, September 1st at the Henry Walser Funeral Home (507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467). A Celebration of Life will be held in the funeral home chapel on Wednesday, September 2nd at 1:00 pm followed by a burial at Parkview Cemetery (Waterloo, ON). The Celebration of Life service may be viewed at 1 pm Wednesday via the following link: https://www.henrywalser.com/live-streaming
From September 4 to September 30, the service may be viewed through Mary's webpage on the funeral home site.

If you plan to attend the visitation or service, please note that masks are mandatory and guests must RSVP at the link below.

Mrs. Skura was a wonderful neighbour to my parents over the years, and I always enjoyed chatting with her or simply waving "hi" whenever I would come home for a visit and see her outside in her garden. My deepest sympathies to the family - she will be missed!

Elizabeth Kochan McKenzie - Mary my oldest sister. Mary made beautiful clothes; pretty little dresses for us to go to school and wear at home. As soon as she came home to the farm , the sewing machine came out, and she started sewing dresses for us. We always had very pretty clothes from Mary. She and Mike brought the first car home to the farm for Mom and Dad. We were the first ones in Poplarfield to have a vehicle. Mary was also the ONLY sister to have a man come to the farm on white horse and propose marriage to wisk her away, but Mary decided she was going to go to Toronto instead; and met her true love Mike and started a beautiful life in Ontario. Mary was a wonderful person, and sister. We miss her. We will always miss her. For the Skura family , my nieces and nephews. I’m thinking of you and I’m sorry for your loss.

Aunty Mary will be greatly missed. A matriarch for our family not only to her immediate family; but as the oldest sibling that always brought home many gifts for her 10 younger brothers and sisters. Aunty Mary was a real inspiration. At 44, I’m inspired to accomplish half as much as she in 1 day at her 100 years of age. Aunty Mary lived life well, right up until her final day. I’m sure Baba & Guido are very proud of Aunty Mary and all she achieved. Although we are saddened, what a beautiful reunion full of hugs, laughter and joy on the other side. I imagine the celebrations, roaring laughter and clinking of plates and dishes with family. Aunty Mary, it’s not goodbye , but see you later . Until we meet again. I love you .
