Mary M. Fallis (née Creith)
November 15, 1927 - January 11, 2022
 
Mary M. Fallis (née Creith), age 94, passed peacefully on Tuesday January 11, 2022 in her home at Homestead South, Morden, Manitoba with all of her loving children around her - Luella (Göran), Gotland, Sweden; Rodney (Donna), Vita; Maureen (Joe), Ottawa; Louise (Earl), Morden; Brad (Yvonne), Lloydminster.
 
Mary was born and raised in Purves with her parents, Gusta and Alec Creith and brothers, Mack and Robert. She graduated from U of M with a Master’s degree in Home Economics in 1949. In 1950, she married Warren B. Fallis and together they farmed the original homestead in the Fallison district. Mary played an active role in the Crystal City community, particularly UCW, WI, and 4-H. She was a talented seamstress: sewing everything from tailored suits to parkas and sharing her passion, skills and knowledge by teaching others. Mary loved to travel and forged cherished relationships with her beloved Irish relatives. When visiting her family in Sweden and points around the world she enjoyed the adventure as well as the meeting and making of new friends.
 
Her treasured grandchildren (Marion, Gavin, Robert, Rory, Abbie, Brent, Jodi, Brenna, Danny, Nicola) and great grandchildren were the light of her life. She valued and nurtured close connections with each and every one of them.
 
Mary took pride in planting and preserving an abundant harvest from her garden, in milking cows or driving the combine and was equally comfortable planning and hosting fancy dinner parties. She lived life to the fullest and was so proud of her family. She will be missed by her many friends far and wide.
