It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mary Marlow, September 18th, 2021 at the age of 80. Mary will be missed and lovingly remembered by her children Marc Marlow (Candace), Nicole Paternoster (Don) and grandchildren Damon, Heather, Todd, Nicholas, Brooke, Tanner and Mikaela as well as sisters Anna Barton, Linda Dammeyer (John) and sister-in-law Sandy (Craig) Margarison, their families and many friends. Mary was predeceased by the love of her life and husband, Bill (Quad Father) Marlow in 2002, her parents William and Helen Politsky, and brother Walter Politsky.
Mary was born in a small town, Smoky Lake, Alberta on August 1st, 1941 as the 3rd child to Bill and Helen. She had an adventurous spirit which provided many mischievous childhood stories. Mary graduated high school as Valedictorian and ventured off to explore Australia and Europe for two years before attending NAIT in Edmonton, AB and graduating from the Drafting Technology program with honors. This is where she met and feel in love with Bill Marlow. The two married in 1966 and eventually made Hinton their home where they made numerous memories and friends. Bill and Mary were entrepreneurs at heart and together operated many businesses in Hinton including a pizza parlor, construction business, and eventually a snowmobile/ATV rental touring company. They enjoyed camping and motor sports of all types which made Hinton the perfect place to raise a family. Mary’s passion was her family, traveling and having a good time with friends.
We would like to thank Dr. Sorenson and the staff at Hinton Continuing Care Centre for the care and support provided to Mary over the past few years. We cannot express our sincere gratitude enough that she could remain in Hinton for her remaining years.
