Mary Jane Reinstein

February 22, 1918 – November 24, 2018
Our lovely Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, and Great Great Grandma passed away peacefully in her sleep, three months shy of her 101st birthday.

She was predeceased by her youngest son Robert – 2008, and youngest daughter Maralyn – 2014. She was also predeceased by 8 of her siblings.

She will be lovingly remembered and missed by her sister Ethel (Newfoundland), son Gary (Lorna) Chemainus, Daughter Heather (Willie) Chilliwack, Granddaughters Sherri (Kevin) Chilliwack, Tracey (Larry) Chemainus, Carrie (Jason) Duncan, Grandson Mike (Jeanette) Mission, 10 Great Grandchildren, and 5 Great Great Grandchildren.

Mom was born in Petty Harbour Newfoundland, and left home in her teens to eventually settle in Victoria where she resided for the better part of her life. She was fun loving and particularly enjoyed sewing and quilting, gifting her handiwork to her growing family.

We can’t express enough gratitude to The Lodge on 4th in Ladysmith for their superb care of Mom in her final years, and also Robb of The Lodge who she loved and who made our visits with Mom enjoyable and fun.

There will be a family Celebration of Mom’s life at a later date. We Love You Mom!
