Mary Helena Rieberger (nee Dorosz)

January 3, 1931 – January 11, 2019
Mary passed away in White Rock, B.C. on January 11th, 2019 – just 8 days after her 88th birthday.

Mary was born January 3, 1931 in Neudorf, Saskatchewan to Fred and Katherine Dorosz. Mary was the youngest of 3 girls (Tina and Rose) and the first in her family born in Canada – her mother and father having immigrated here from Eastern Europe with the 2 older girls.

Mary is survived by her loving husband Sid, her two sons Dave (Branca) and Jim (Lynne), three beautiful grand-daughters Angela and Julia, Dave’s stepdaughter Sophia and great grandson Kienen (Sophia) who will always remember how special they were to her.

Mary took great pride in her home and family, with Christmas being a particularly special time of the year. She baked many wedding and special anniversary cakes for friends and family, she was an amazing baker. Dinner at Grandma’s was not complete without a serving of her homemade pie. Mary and Sid loved socializing, camping and travel, with annual trips to Reno a regular event in their later years. They never missed a family reunion.

Rest in peace beloved Wife, Mother and Grandmother.

The Family would like to thank the staff and doctors of Evergreen Baptist Campus of Care and Westminster House for their compassionate care of their Mother.
