In memory of
Mary Morbeck December 20, 1921 – February 10, 2017 Mary leaves to mourn her son Bernie Morbeck (Karen) and daughter Donna Adair (Bill), grandchildren Steve Adair (great- grandchildren Colton and Lane), Curtis Adair (great-grandchildren Carly and Parker) and Kim Adair. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Mary was predeceased by husband Charles and granddaughter Janet Morbeck. She was also predeceased by brothers Alf and Frank Garner and sister Myra Husband and their spouses. She was the last of her generation in both the Garner and Morbeck families. Mary was born in Saskatoon and raised in the Bents district and graduated from the Olympic school in the Bear Hills. She went to hairdressing school in Saskatoon and met Charles Morbeck at a dance while he trained with the RCAF. After the war ended and he returned from overseas they were married in 1946 and moved to Bluesky, Alberta where they farmed for 7 years. They moved back to the Bents area in 1953. Bernie was born that some year and Donna two years later. The farm was a mixed farm. Mary helped in the spring and trucked in the fall during harvest. She also fed the pigs and helped clean the hog barn. She grew a garden and cooked meals. She loved to make desserts and always had some to share at coffee time. Bernie married Karen in 1975 and Charles and Mary moved to Biggar in retirement. Mary volunteered for a few years at the Biggar library and enjoyed doing so. She loved having coffee and talking with her friends in Biggar. Charles passed away in 1988 and Mary lived on her own since then. Her biggest enjoyment was family and friends and seeing her grandkids. She was very happy to have been able to attend the Garner family reunion in 2015 and her 95th birthday party just this year. She was able to touch base with a lot of the relatives. Mary was loved dearly and will be sadly missed.
