It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Marcella Grace Fehr on August 15, 2012 at 73 years of age after a short battle of cancer. Marcella passed away just 18 days after her beloved husband Jake Fehr, whom which she never left his side.
Marcella Fehr was born in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan on February 27, 1939. Her parents were Elizabeth Swain and Henry Francis of England.
Marcella was predeceased by her husband Jake Fehr (July 28, 2012), her brothers Woodrow Francis, Gerald Francis (Iona), Ronny Francis (Ina) and her sisters, Pearl Wilks (Peter) and Doreen Miscavitch (Nick).
Marcella is survived by her four children: Rosina Hoffman (George), Tina Smith (Darcy), Garret Hoogestraat (Korena) and Glen Fehr (Florriann); her nine grandchildren Alysha and Janna Fehr, Paul and Kyle Hoffman, Shawn and Candice Smith, Christopher, Blake, and Tanner Hoogestraat; her great-grandchildren Faith and Shyla Smith, Kayleigh and Ashlyn Smith, and Taylor Hoogestraat.
Marcella married her first husband, John Hoogestraat in 1956, a carpenter and a logger. They had three children together and sadly Marcella was widowed in 1961.
Marcella married Jake in 1967; together they lovingly raised the three youngsters and had a son.
They set up home in Kamloops 35 years ago. Marcella found enjoyment in her garden, flowers and hummingbirds. She relished her time with her many grandchildren and great grandchildren but especially cherished her time spent with her loving husband Jake. Together they enjoyed taking road trips throughout British Columbia and an annual trip to visit family in Saskatchewan.
The last couple of months of Marcella and Jake's lives were made comfortable by the compassionate and caring staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Hospice. A gift to this wonderful facility in favor of Marcella or Jake would be greatly appreciated by all the family.
Jake's family welcome friends and family to attend a Celebration of Life to be held at 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. September 1, 2012 at the Pacific Host Inn and Suites conference room (1820 Rogers Place, Kamloops).
