It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mary-Lynne Harding (nee Flieger). After a brief illness, Mary-Lynne passed away at Royal Inland Hospital on January 11, 2019. Mary-Lynne is survived by her son, Guy (Marlies) Harding and beloved grand-daughters Justine & Lylah, of Vernon, daughter Melinda Harding of Kamloops, sister Neva (Robert) Strand of Keremeos, brother Robert Flieger of Kamloops, cousins Cathie & Steve Scheidegger of Kamloops, and close friends.
She was pre-deceased by her parents Roy & Rose Flieger, brothers George & Donald Flieger, sister Margaret Berg (nee Flieger) and husband Ray Harding. She is fondly remembered by nephews Gary Berg, Robert Berg, David Berg, Aaron Flieger and nieces Diana Flieger, Simone Flieger, Linda Flieger, Linda McMillan, Barb MacEwan, Cari Mutch and Elaine Sinclair.
Mary-Lynne moved, with her family, to Kamloops in 1954 from Turner Valley, Alberta. In addition to being a devoted and supportive daughter to Rose & Roy, she was a loving and supportive homemaker to Ray, Guy and Melinda.
Mary-Lynne’s many interests kept her active in the North Kamloops community. She held a life-long passion for family history that led her to serve as vice-president and president of the Kamloops Family History Society from 1990 to 1991. Her passion resulted in the authorship of three thoroughly researched books on her lineage. For many years, she was active in doll collecting and scrapbooking circles.
She will be long remembered by family and many friends for her engaging conversations, inquisitive mind, warm, generous spirit and ever-present pots of tea.
A celebration of Mary-Lynne’s life will be held at 1:30PM on Saturday February 2nd at Desert Gardens, 540 Seymour Street, Kamloops. In lieu of flower or gifts, please donate to Royal Inland Hospital. Condolences may be sent to the family at DrakeCremation.comPrint This Obituary & Condolences
