Born in Irma, AB, to Margaret and Sidney Miles, Mary passed away in Penticton, BC, at the age of 94. She lived in Irma, AB with her siblings; Alma, Margaret, Clara and Charles until 1932. In 1937, she married Jim Bond and together they raised a family of six children; Elsie, Mavis, Shannon, Elaine, Arthur and Curtis in Princeton, Hedley and other communities. She loved camping, fishing, traveling, knitting, reading and cooking. Mary has fond memories of the OLD Homestead, especially watching the old binder being drawn by a team of four horses and working at the Hedley Café for .25 cents an hour. Mary remarried Sydney Lucas, the love of her life, and enjoyed their time together until his passing in 2005. Mary was surrounded by the love of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Sadly, she was predeceased by her son Curtis. Mary moved into Village By the Station in 2011 and she absolutely loved living there and appreciated the excellent care she received from the staff.Messages of condolences may be sent by visiting
