It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Mary Jane Angott on May 9, 2020 at the age of 94 in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Mary was born July 30, 1925 to John and Isabelle Worden in Highland Park, Michigan. Her father John was the police captain for the Highland Park Police Department and her mother was a nurse at Grace Hospital. They already had two children, Catherine Mary and Jacques Westley, when they decided to expand the family with Mary Jane and Harrison Franklin (Corky). Mary and Corky were a good 10 years younger than their siblings and as a result formed a special bond growing up. Mary would grow up to be a true beauty that allowed her to do a little modeling in high school when she moved to Florida with her parents. She would work at Vickers making airplane parts and then move up to doing the accounting for a local appliance store. Life changed the summer of 1943 when she was travelling back to Detroit by train with her sister Catherine and a handsome young Canadian Airforce man named Grover Edsel Angott caught her eye. They would forge a long distance relationship while he served and she finished high school. They were married on February 22, 1945 in Sarasota, Florida and moved into a small apartment over his family owned hardware store in Morse, Saskatchewan. It was a big adjustment for Mary to move to a small town and live in an apartment that had no plumbing or heating. On June 11, 1946 Mary gave birth to her daughters Laura Mary and Lana Marie in Herbert, Saskatchewan. The family would eventually settle down in Swift Current and open a stationary store. Mary always helped support her children working odd jobs such as making pizzas for the local spaghetti house as well as working in the family store. She would eventually work for Anderson, Nimegeers, Walters and Gibbings Office as a legal secretary until she retired. Her daughter Laura would marry her high school sweetheart Douglas Clark Vance on September 18, 1965 and remain in Swift Current. Lana would marry Andrew Lloyd Lines on September 9, 1967 and move to Fort McMurray, Alberta. Mary enjoyed baking, crosswords and playing bridge with her numerous friends. She could be seen having a coffee at the mall or walking her beloved dogs Max and Myling. Her husband Grover would pass away from appendicitis in April 1976 and she would never remarry. She remained in Swift Current, moving from her longtime residence, eventually ending up at The Meadows where she passed away peacefully. Mary leaves behind her daughters, Laura Vance (Doug) and Lana Lines; her 6 grandchildren: Scott Vance (Nicole), Laura Ann Carefoot (Mike), Andreanna Lamont (Ken), Jay Lines (Karen), Alana Cartwright (Brad), and Aaron Lines (Dana); her 15 great grandchildren: Hunter Vance, Alexandra Vance, Kylie Carefoot, Cameron Lamont, Andrew Lines, Jaedyn Carefoot, Brooke Lamont, Aidan Lines, Kristen Cartwright, AJ Lines, Brett Cartwright, Lauryn Lines, Brendan Carwright, Brielle Lines, and Evan Lines; her dearest friends, MaryBelle Lautsch and Pearl Richert. Mary is predeceased by her Mother, Isabelle Worden, Father John Westley Worden, brothers, Jacques and Harrison Worden, sister Catherine Mcgregor, and husband, Grover Edsel Angott. Warren's Funeral Home were entrusted with the arrangements.
