Mary Tasci (nee Crummie)
It is with great sadness that the family of Mary Margaret Tasci announces her peaceful passing on Friday December 11, 2020 in Wakefield, Quebec after a ten-month long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born on February 24, 1940 in Portadown N. Ireland, Mary grew up in the port town of Dundalk, Ireland. Ambitious to have a career, she left to study radiography in England, then later in life upgraded her skills to become a sonographer. Ever the adventurer, Mary met her beloved husband Eduardo, in Turkey where she gave birth to her first child. They then moved to Brussels, Belgium where they operated a hotel, and their two sons were born. Pregnant with her fourth child, the family moved to Dundalk, Ireland in 1976. For their last big move Mary and family emigrated to Canada in 1980 - a country she fully embraced and truly loved.
Mary will be remembered for her stunning beauty, sharp wit, easy smile, insatiable curiosity, and large, loving heart. She loved spending time with her family and friends, traveling and enjoying good food over interesting conversation. In her later years, Mary enjoyed singing in choirs, painting the landscapes of her childhood, and was always up for adventure traveling whenever and wherever she could. She takes her final voyage into that good night and the eternal love, light, and mercy of God.
Mary will be lovingly remembered by her children Olga (Greg Wiebe), Patrick (Marlene Lowden), Philippe (Misbah Mukri) and Nadia (Uros Jelic), and stepchildren George Tasci, Rea Tsatsoulis, and Katina Tinnivlioglu. Mary will also be fondly remembered by her seven beloved grandchildren Terran, Zohra, Zeba, Erin, Tara, Katya, and Theo. She will also be remembered by her sisters Clodagh O’Callaghan, Aveen Ferguson, Orla Sugden, and Sheena King, her brother Dr. Arthur Crummie and all her nieces and nephews.
A private funeral will be held on Thursday, January 14 at St-Stephens Church, Chelsea Quebec. Live streaming is being arranged, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Details will be confirmed shortly. The family also plans to hold a celebration of her life next summer.
