It is with heartfelt emotion that the family of Mary Anne Litousky announces her passing on Wednesday, March 4th, 2015 at the age of 72 years. Surrounded by love, she took her last breaths to rejoin her father and mother, Evert and Vi Peterson, her brother and nephew, Floyd and Lee Peterson and her sister-in-law, Bertha Litowsky. Mary is survived by her loving husband; Bill Litousky, her children: Tony Litousky, Bill (Lori) Litousky, Barb (Murray) Faulkner, and Lilas Litousky. She will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren; Calvin Litousky, Bryanne (Trajan) Ogden, Haillee (Karel) Beijer, Connor and Harrison Litousky, Elizabeth Ast, Krystal (Dan) Gray, Samantha Ast, Cassandra “Casey” Ast, Aura and River Litousky; as well as her great-grandchildren; Seann and Lexi.

Mary was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta and grew up on the family farm in the Box Springs area. She attended a country schoolhouse, then Alexandra Junior High, and Medicine Hat High School where she graduated in 1960. Mary loved animals, especially her pet lamb “Lamby” and she was always nurturing animals on the farm. She would always fight for the “little” guy and detested bullying. Mary married her soul mate, Bill, on May 25th, 1961 in Calgary, Alberta. They moved between Calgary, Lethbridge, Coaldale, and back to Medicine Hat in 1972. Mary loved Medicine Hat and the Prairies so much that moving to Penticton in 1991 had them move back to her beloved Prairies in 1993. Mary was a hard worker and loved everybody’s children like her own. She was proud to start a lunch program as a Teacher’s Aide at Alexandra Junior High School in the early 1980’s and was respected by all who came to know her. Mary was very artistic and loved to paint mostly landscapes and animals. She also became involved as a Board Member of Hatterland Children’s Theatre and never missed a play since 2002. Her love of her Saviour, Jesus Christ, was extremely important to her and she expressed it freely to all. Mary was a passionate lady who loved fiercely and unconditionally which is why everyone could call her “Mom”. For those fortunate to have received one of her “bear” hugs she will be deeply missed.

Together they moved their family to Medicine Hat in 1960. John was a loving husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to all he met. He gave unconditional love to his family, and always put everyone’s needs before his own. John lived a very full life. It spanned from farming the wheat fields of Saskatchewan, to the condo he loved in Medicine Hat.
