Mary A. Kahl passed away in the Stettler Hospital & Care Centre, Stettler, Alta. on June 1, 2019, at the age of 89 years.
Mary was born in February 1930 and was the eldest with three younger brothers.
She grew up in rural Saskatchewan, near North Battleford, and eventually landed in North Battleford where she met and married Henry Kahl in April 1957.
Daughter Lynn was born in North Battleford in 1958 and shortly after the young family moved to Alberta.
Son Garth was born in Stettler in 1960, and the family settled in Stettler. Mom was a kind-hearted lady, rather quiet and private, choosing to keep things to herself.
Not one to complain, she tried to find the good in everyone.
She was a good friend and a good neighbour.
She liked to read, tend to her vegetable and flower gardens and had a passion for crocheting afghans for which she won ribbons at the local fair.
She did a stint working outside the home by doing some babysitting and finally settling into helping Dad run his business from home.
She made the big move to Points West Living, Stettler in the fall of 2014 where she resided at the time of passing.
She was one terrific granny to four treasured grandchildren and two cherished great-grandchildren who will all miss her deeply.
Mary is survived by her daughter Lynn (Albert) Pratt; son Garth (Angie); grandchildren: Michelle Crocker (Jason) and their daughters Harlow and Harper, Eric (Megan), Rider and Tyson.
Mary is also survived by her sisters-in-law: Betty Langerak, Elsie Langerak, Dianne Michaud, Louise Vysch, Carol (Frank) Nelson, Geri (Joe) Janow, Elsie (Ed) Skow; brother-in-law Lyle (Donna) Kahl as well as nieces, nephews other relatives and dear friends.

Also predeceasing her are brothers: Bill Langerak, Tony Langerak and Mike Langerak; father-in-law Henry Kahl; mother-in-law Clara Kahl; brother-in-law Leonard Michaud and sister-in-law Marion Langerak.
