Mary Margaret Mantle

Mary Margaret Mantle

March 18, 1923 – April 28, 2015

Mary was born in Copper Cliff, Ontario, Canada to William and Celina (Callery) McNevin, March 18, 1923. On April 28, 2015 her pain and suffering ceased at Skagit Valley Hospital, Mount Vernon, when Mary passed into God’s peace.

On August 18, 1951 she joined Howard Mantle in marriage, together they raised their seven children, built a home, emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1965 and moved to Kirkland, WA in 1971.

Mary left the “outside of home” work world to totally take on the job of being there for her children and providing a wonderful home for her family, which she did successfully. Later Mary worked as a bookkeeper and in social service. After moving to Mount Vernon in 1991 Mary became active in Citizens For Mount Vernon and People For A Peaceable Plant, trying to make things better for all. Until recently, Mary was an avid reader and enjoyed travel with Howard to various parts of Canada and the U.S.A. 

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Hugh, William and John, son, James, granddaughter, Erica, great-grandchildren, Olivia and Nathan and various in-laws.

Mary is survived by husband Howard, children, Elizabeth Kauhane (Kirk), Jennifer True (Bill), Andrew (Daina Kusins), Anthony (Pam), Julia (late Jason Cardelli), Valerie (James Oleson), eight grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, sister, Kathryn, nieces and nephews and many good friends. 

Mary, Mom, Gramma, Great-Gramma, Aunt May, through thick and thin you loved us all and you are deeply loved and sorely missed by us all, always. Thanks for being you.

Mary requested cremation and no service. Informal celebration to follow later. 

Mary, rest in peace with your Creator. 

Thanks to the doctors, nurses and aides at Skagit Valley Hospital who helped Mary so well in her final days. – See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/skagitvalleyherald/obituary.aspx?n=mary-margaret-mantle&pid=174782729#sthash.gaZxMxY3.dpuf
