Born: October 20th, 1930
Passed on: December 29th, 2012
Peacefully, with her family at her side, Mom lost her battle with Alzheimer's at the age of 82.
Mom was born and raised in BC, and was living in Penny when she met and married Charlie, her husband of 64 years.
As the matriarch of the family, she took great joy in putting her family first. Her house was always full of people and the smell of her home cooking and baking. She always tried to be all things to all people, helping any way she could. Her greatest joys were her trips into the bush and knowing that she passed this love for the bush on to her family members. After hauling and peeling the logs themselves, she and Charlie built two log homes. They also made sure the woodshed was always full.
Mom has left to miss but treasure her memory, her loving husband Charlie, daughter Joy and sons Rick (Linda), Jim (Cindy), grandchildren Tila (Warren), Coralee, Rick Jr. and Dallas (Debra), numerous great grandchildren, sister Bette and brother Jim, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
Special thanks to Blueberry Lane at Overlander Hospital for caring for our Mom.
A Celebration of Mom's life will be held at Cottonwood/North Shore Community Centre, 730 Cottonwood Avenue, Oak Room, January 12, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
