In Memory of





Obituary for Mary McLeoad Antonenko (Andrews)

1957 - 2023

It is with love and sadness that we are mourning the loss of Mary, who passed away in Estevan, Sask. after a long and brave struggle with cancer on February 20, 2023.

Mary was born the fourth child of James and Margaret Andrews of Crane Valley. Mary grew up in Crane Valley attending school there. After leaving school, Mary attended beauty school and became a hair dresser, working in Regina and Saskatoon.

Mary’s love of sewing began at a very early age and she decided to make this her lifelong career. Having operated her own businesses for several years and doing beautiful work for many customers, she decided once again to make a career change and spent her remaining working years in the office of Peavey Mart in Estevan, earning the respect of co-workers and customers alike.

The family wishes to acknowledge and express our sincere thanks to all of the medical professionals who have given their all to help Mary in her cancer journey. The Palliative Care staff of St. Joseph's Hospital in Estevan are to be commended for their care given to Mary in her last days. This is such a stressful time for family and it is so much appreciated to have others who provide their loving care at this time.

Mary leaves to mourn her loss her husband, David; daughter, Carla (Todd); grandchildren, Tyrae (Tyler), Zabrina (Nick) and Nakita; great granddaughter, Arianna; mother, Margaret; brothers, Walter and Robert; sister, Bess as well as numerous extended family and friends.

She was predeceased by her grandparents, father, James;  daughter, Judy; brother, Gordon.

A service to celebrate Mary’s life was held on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at St. Paul’s United Church, 1418 3rd Street, Estevan at 1:30 p.m. A private family burial will be conducted at a later date.
