Mary Loretta (nee Matheson) Carter

CARTER, Mary Loretta (nee Matheson) - After a full life, Loretta peacefully passed away in her 95th year at Lee Manor in Owen Sound on March 8, 2019. She is now reunited with the love of her life, husband Ron, and dearly missed son, Gary. She was much loved by her children Allen MacVicar (Marie), Darrell MacVicar (Lyn), Chuck MacVicar (Carol Anne), Dale MacVicar (Carolyn), and Linda Carter-Wuensch (Ron). She was the treasured grandmother of Glenn, Jim, Christie, Richard, Greg, Teresa, Rob, Krista, Jessie, Andy, Jinny, Tarra, and T.J., as well as 21 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. Loretta is survived by her adored sister Thelma, long-time brother-in-law Charlie Ross, and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by siblings William, Kay (Doug), Margaret (Karl), and Findlay (Rosalind) and her parents, Jessie (McLean) and William Matheson. Loretta was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She was happiest surrounded by family and delighted whenever a deck of cards appeared. She was admired for many things: baking and culinary skills, an easy laugh, her work ethic, a competitive spirit, keeping an immaculate house, sewing expertise, openness to adventure, knowledge of Scrabble words, and always making others feel good. Until the end, she retained her independence, gentle warmth and kindness, and sense of gratitude. Following cremation, the family will hold a private celebration of life and interment. Please consider memorial donations to the charity of your choice as an expression of sympathy. Loretta’s family is grateful for the caring support from the Kelso Villa community and the extraordinary care and compassion provided by Lee Manor’s team during her final days. 13329936
