Mary Kanuka

March 30, 1955 — June 17, 2022

Mary Kanuka passed away peacefully with family by her side on Friday June 17, 2022 at the age of 67 years.

Mary was born in Edmonton to Mike and Annie Jakub. She met Jim in 1976, they married in 1977 and shortly afterwards moved to Calgary where they raised their family. Mary worked for over 30 years for the Calgary Catholic School Board earning a Long Service Award prior to her retirement. She loved animals of all sorts. She was mom to many fur babies over the years and was the go-to pet sitter for neighbours and friends. Together Mary and Jim enjoyed going to garage sales and flea markets. She loved camping and traveling with family and friends. She especially liked going to Disneyland. Mary gardened, cooked and baked and she was a fantastic cook. Christmas dinners in the Kanuka home included no less than four pies! Most of all, Mary loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Mary is predeceased by her parents, Mike and Annie and survived by her husband of 45 years, Jim; children, Tracy & Cameron; grandchildren, Haddie & Harry; brother, Mike (Doris) Jakub; and nephew, Kyle.

Donations may be made to any Animal Rescue Foundation of choice.
