It is with great sadness and a profound feeling of loss that we announce the passing of Deirdre Bartlett on January 20, 2013.
Deirdre leaves her husband Jim in Kamloops, her mother Nancy Chisholm in Qualicum Beach, her sister Tia (Gary) Otte in Coquitlam, her son Andrew (Brittany) in Kamloops, her son David (Ruth) in Victoria and her granddaughter Ava in Kamloops.
Deirdre was born in Winnipeg and moved as a young girl with her family to British Columbia. She attended the University of Victoria where she met Jim, her husband of nearly 40 years. Since graduating together in 1973, Jim and Deirdre lived and worked in Smithers, Prince George, Terrace and Victoria before moving to Kamloops in 1979. Deirdre had a passion for helping others and spent her working years serving as a probation officer and a social worker.
Retired for the past few years, Deirdre involved herself in volunteer work in the community and made many more friends during that time. Deirdre will always be remembered as a cheerful and loyal friend, always showing good humour and a love of life as she cared for others. She was a selfless and giving person whose memory will be forever cherished by her family.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
