Obituary of Maryanne Ruth Brown Stanvick
In Loving Memory of Maryanne Brown Stanvick
November 5, 1949 ~ December 26, 2021
Maryanne was born in Calgary, Alberta and grew up in Bassano, Alberta. In her teenage years, she was a candy-striper at the Bassano Hospital and then went on to Nursing School in Calgary.
She married Lester Stanvick November 28, 1970 and worked as a nurse in Red Deer, Barrhead and Stettler. She took a break from nursing when Lester’s work took them to the USA. They lived there for about 12 years, with the majority of the time in Savage, Montana once the girls started school. When they moved back to Carbon, Alberta in 1985 she started working again as a nurse at the Three Hills Hospital.
Maryanne enjoyed volunteering in many of the communities she lived in. She hauled her daughters and their teammates around to many sporting events. She enjoyed baking, camping and spending time with friends and family. Her services and generosity will be missed by many.
Special thank you to Three Hills Hospital and Timberstone Mews Continuing Care Facility in Red Deer for the compassionate care during her last few months.
Maryanne will be forever missed by her loving family, husband of 51 years, Lester Stanvick of Red Deer; daughters Sandra Madder of Calgary and Kim (Ashley) Maerz of Red Deer; grandchildren: Tristan Madder of Calgary, Trinity Madder of Calgary, Kendra Tieken-Maerz of Penhold, Denisha Maerz of Red Deer, Kadence Maerz of Red Deer and Dyson Maerz of Red Deer; sisters in law Leona Konschuh of Stettler, Judy Stanvick of Erskine and Linda (Randy) Jones of Donalda; brothers in law Melvin Newberry of Taber and Lloyd (Carol) Stanvick of Red Deer; numerous nieces and nephews, other family members and many dear friends and neighbours.
Maryanne was predeceased by her parents Andy and Jean Brown, parents in law John and Rosa Stanvick, sisters Colleen Newberry and Debbie Brown; brothers in law Gerry Konschuh and Loren Stanvick.
A private celebration of Maryanne’s life will be held at a later date.
