Mae passed peacefully at Broadmead Lodge surrounded by her family on November 23, 2019.  Mae was predeceased by her loving husband, Stan (October 5, 2019) and her twin sister, June Hawthorne (1970). Mae will be lovingly remembered by her son, Steven (Elizabeth); daughter, Susan (Mike); her grandchildren, Brian, Tom, Danielle, Mathew their partners and by many other relatives and friends.

Mae was born in Victoria and graduated from Mt. View High School where she had many fond memories. She met Stan the love of her life at a Y dance and they married November 16, 1950.  Mae was a member of the Y’s Menettes Service Club and later in life, they were avid square dancers and members of the Square Crows.  Mae loved to entertain and host parties and the door was always open for friends and family to drop by, no invitation was necessary.  Mae will be remembered for her kind and loving nature, helping her family in any way and her delicious apple pies.

Mae was happiest holding Stan’s hand surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She will be loved and remembered always.

Thank you to the staff and volunteers especially those on Lodge A2 for the wonderful care they provided to our parents during their time at Broadmead Lodge.

A Celebration of Mae’s Life will be held on Monday, December 2, 2019 at 10:30 am at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, 1973 Cultra Avenue, Saanichton, BC.
