Mary Jane was born to Albert and Julian Cook on August 2, 1943 at Shoal River, Manitoba, where she was raised. Mary Jane attended residential school at Camperville, Manitoba.
Mary Jane loved to have company over, she liked driving around with her husband and granddaughter, little Mary Jane (MJ). She enjoyed listening to gospel music, reading and her favorite was bingo and VLT’s with her husband Paull by her side.
Mary Jane resided in the hospital battling her illness for the last six months, during which she enjoyed daily visits from her husband and granddaughter.
