In Loving Memory Of

Mary-Clare Binns

 

Mary-Clare Binns, resident of Grande Prairie, AB, formerly of Prescott, ON, passed away on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, peacefully at home.

Mary-Clare was born September 21, 1944 in Brockville, ON.

After starting her nursing career in Ontario, she relocated to Alberta, where she met her husband, Donald Binns.

Mary-Clare always put others before herself, and was a patient, kind, intelligent, and a non-judgmental woman. Her contributions to the community involved the following: Lions club, prenatal classes, Mother’s Day out, Discovery weekends, hockey mom and owner/operator of the children’s taxi service, home care nurse coordinator, planning commission member for QEII hospital, nursing program instructor at GPRC, Scouts Canada, speech judge for 4H and Vacation Bible School. She loved spending winter in Palm Springs, a good book, loved playing cards with her grandkids, and trips with her sisters to the corner store (sometimes she went alone).

She will be remembered by her husband Donald; and children: Andrea (Ross), Morgan (Leah), Martha, Daniel (Allison), and Patrick (Fiona). Also, her grandchildren: Jane, Linden, Alexa, Laura, Denton, Fraser, Rory, and Piper; siblings: Patricia McLean and Allan (Nancy) McLean; as well as all that knew Mary-Clare Binns.

She was predeceased by her parents Jean and Ken McLean, sister Constance E. Wells, brother Allen Poinsett, niece Kimberly Wells, nephew David Wells, and brother in-law Romaine Wells.
