Mary Skubovius (nee Martin)

1917 - 2018 

Mary Skubovius, age 100, of Morden, Manitoba, passed away peacefully on Monday (May 14, 2018) at the Tabor Home in Morden. She was the beloved wife of the late Arthur Skubovius (1979). 

Mary was born in Hamerlik, Manitoba on October 20, 1917. She was the daughter of the late Mary and John Martin, and sister to the late Mike Martin, Annette Manderson, Nick Martin, Katherine Zemanski, Nellie Lytwyn and Alec Martin. 

Mary dedicated her life to God, her children and grandchildren and spent countless hours supporting the work set forth by St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Parish. 

Mary leaves behind her two sons, James and Ernest Skubovius and daughter, Marilyn Skubovius. Mary also leaves behind her three grandchildren, Angela(Dan), Lisa(Martin) and William(Yvonne) Skubovius and her four great grandchildren, Sabrina, Emily, Pierce and Gillian as well as numerous nieces and nephews and countless friends from her town, surrounding communities and parish.

Mary was an incredible homemaker with a sharp mind who loved to garden, knit, embroider, and solve word puzzles. She was a tremendous cook, making traditional Ukrainian feasts for family and friends who, in her opinion, could never eat enough. Above all, Mary treasured simply spending time with her family, and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
