Mary Mildred Skidmore (Sisson)

December 6, 1919 - August 4, 2014


Mary was born to Cecil and Elsie Sisson in beautiful Peterborough, Ontario, where she grew up and worked at Westclox Time Co and JJ Turners, a manufacturer and retailer of quality leather and canvas goods. Widowed in 1982 after 39 years as a devoted wife to the late Donald Menzies of Peterborough, she is now dearly missed by her husband of the last 29 years, Arthur Skidmore of Rice Lake, Ontario.  Mary and Art moved to Nelson in 2002.  She will be forever missed by her daughter Ann (Eric) Sargent of Nelson, her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren – Paul (Keely) Sargent with their daughter Brynne of Calgary and Lori Sargent (Beau) with their children Oscar and Lili of Errington, BC, and her dear sister Wilma Willshaw and niece Barbara (Mark) Johnston, all of Peterborough.  Mary is also fondly remembered by her many cousins, extended family, and cherished friends.  She passed away surrounded by the love of family after a brief stay at Kootenay Lake Hospital. Special thanks to Dr. Keith Bridger and Melissa for their care and compassion, along with 3rd floor staff at KLH.
