It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Mary Todd on March 13, 2017. Mom was born in 1934 and grew up near Prince George, BC. There she met a handsome young RCMP recruit, Donald Todd, and the two were married in 1954. Three daughters and a law degree later, they were settled in Regina, SK, where Dad practiced law for the remainder of his life. Mom was a fabulous homemaker and cook. Her caring nature and earthy sense of humour were enjoyed by a wide circle of friends and family, as were her renowned cinnamon buns. Predeceased by her husband and her brother Jerry, Mom leaves behind three daughters as well as three grandchildren, Jimmy, Andrea, and Matthew, who loved her dearly for her caring and fun-loving nature, and of whom she was so very proud. She is also survived by nine great-grandchildren and her sister Victoria Harnett. We would like to thank Dr. Rachel Carver, the staff of Sunpointe Village, and especially those in the Belgo Community for their exceptional care and kind treatment of our mother. They made the last years of her life safe and happy ones.
The three of us, Susan (Jim) McLeod, Cheryl (Keith) Prestage, and Cathy (Rudy) Heymen, have become the people our parents shaped us to be. We were raised to embrace honesty, integrity, and hard work, and for that we are ever grateful. We will miss you, Mom; you were the best.
A private family service will be held at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

Cathy, I am so sorry to hear your Mum passed away. I know you took good care of her in her last years and I know from experience that it feels good to have "paid her back" for all she did for you in years past. Please accept my sincere apologies. Lois Flavelle
