Mary Forsberg was born on January 23, 1926 in the Cotham district, south-west of Dubuc, Saskatchewan; a daughter of Jacob and Pauline (nee Parislau) Kopetski. Mary, along with her 9 sisters and 1 brother, were raised on the family farm and received her education at the Cotham School. As a young woman, Mary ventured out on her own, and for a short time worked at a hospital in Regina. On October 24th 1947 she was united in marriage to Eric Forsberg. The couple settled in to farming in the Round Lake district, south of Dubuc.
Mary was a very hard-working individual, who helped in all aspects of the farming operation and worked right alongside Eric. She milked cows, helping during seeding and harvest, was always preparing meals and doing baking, she kept a large garden and enjoyed tending to her flower beds in the summer months. Mary was also involved in her community, working at many functions with various community groups, including the Freedhome Ladies Club and the Dubuc United Church Women's Association.
In the late 1970's Mary & Eric retired from active farming and moved into Dubuc. On March 16, 2006 Eric passed away, and following that time Mary continued to maintain her independence. She eventually moved into the Dubuc Senior's Residences, where she resided for 4 years before moving to the Gladstone Senior's Residence in Yorkton. She resided there until her passing on Friday, October 4th 2019. She was 93 years of age. Predeceased by her parents; her son Gary (Feb. 2019); and by seven sisters & her one brother. She leaves to cherish her memory her daughter Sandra Forsberg of Saskatoon; Gary's son Dallas (Danya) Forsberg and their daughter Sierra of Regina; two sisters: Judy Talbot of Bangor and Joey Elliott of Saskatoon, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and her many other relatives and friends. The funeral service was held on Friday, October 11, 2019 from the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Crystal Bailey, B.TH. officiating. Music played was I Dreamed A Dream & Amazing Grace. Following the memorial luncheon the interment took place in the Dubuc Cemetery with Dallas & Bryan Forsberg, Tony Seidle, John Hedstrom, Carter Bailey and Dennis Toth serving as the casketbearers.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Aunty Mary. She will be missed by those who knew her. I'm sure the other aunties have welcomed her and are now having one of their famous Kopetski gab fests in heaven. Our condolences to you all. Love Sandy & Hamish Boswell and family.
