MARCH 8, 1918 ~ August 1, 2016


We are saddened to announce the passing of Mary Elizabeth Sharp of Winnipeg, Manitoba

on Sunday, August 1, 2016.


Mary was the eldest of four children born to John A. Russell and Bertha (Ivey) Russell. She was predeceased by her brother Jack Stuart Russell and her daughter Mary Louise Sharp. She is survived by two brothers Ronald A. Russell (Carol) and Gerald D.T. Russell (Mary Ann); son G. Russell Sharp (Bernice); three grandsons Anthony (Susan), Andrew and Alexander; two great-grandchildren Lauren and Colton. Also grandson Colin Elliott and granddaughter Shannon (Ryan) and great-grandchildren Elliott and Veronica as well as numerous nieces and nephews and grand-nephews and great-grand nieces and nephews.


Mary attended Kelvin High School and St. Mary’s Academy. In 1940 Mary married G. Harold Sharp and they lived in Winnipeg until 1951 when they moved to Montreal, Quebec. Harold predeceased Mary in 1973. Mary, Russell and Bernice returned to Winnipeg in 2010 and Mary took up residence at the Westhaven Retirement Home where she lived a quiet and enjoyable life. After a recent surgery the addition of Homecare caregivers to her daily routine was greatly appreciated.


At the request of Mary, cremation and a private family memorial has taken place.
