It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of our mom, Mary Werenicz, on April 22nd at Spring Valley Care Center at the age of 94. We are very grateful to be able to be at her side at her passing, in these unprecedented times. Mary, predeceased by husband Michael in 2009, leaves behind her son, Gerry (Linda), daughter Lisa (Stephen), son Ron, daughter Julie (Shaun) and grandchildren, Matt, Mandi and Brett; four great grandchildren and her loving sister, Rose, who resides in Ontario. Mom will be fondly remembered for her kind, gentle soul and her love for her family. Mom's favourite times were family gatherings where she would cook up her famous perogies and cabbage rolls. Also time spent with grandchildren when she loved to read to them which earned her the title, "Book Grandma" The past two years were not so forgiving for mom, so we will be relieved to know she is now at peace. A special thank you to our brother, Ron, for his tireless attention, love and care giving of mom. Rest in peace Mom/Grama, we will miss you. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.valleyviewfuneralhome.com for the Werenicz family.

Mrs. W. was like a second mom to me for many many years. I spent many days at their house and had more sleepovers than I can count. She was always so caring and sweet. My favourite memories were her pancakes. She was a great cook and I loved a lot of her food but the pancakes were my fav. Another great memory was at Julie’s wedding. I had no idea what great dancers her mom and dad were. They could really cut a rug.
So sad that she is gone but I will remember her with great fondness.
My condolences and love to the whole family.
