Passed on: July 12th, 2014
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Daisy Brenholen passed away peacefully on July 12, 2014 at the age of 91. Daisy was predeceased by her husband, Gene, in 1997. She will be lovingly remembered by daughters Brenda (Ron) Dowling, and Linda Brenholen; granddaughters Alana (Dan), Danielle (Kevin), Suzanne (Neil); great grandchildren Brad, Kyle, Ryan Grace, Holden and Aidan. Daisy was born in Newfoundland on October 29, 1922 to Ethel and George Wells. The family moved to “Canada” when she was six years old. Daisy married Gene in 1943 and in their last few years they spent together they travelled all of Canada and part of the United States. Daisy also travelled to Florida and the Bahamas as well as many trips to Ottawa and Calgary to visit her great-grandchildren. Daisy had a high level of energy, feisty spirit and great determination with every aspect of her life. A special thank you to Drs A J and G B Van Heerden for their many years of excellent care. Also, words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for the nurses and care aides at Pioneer Lodge. They are truly angels for the patience, care and love they showed Daisy in her two years at the lodge. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Daisy to the Canadian Cancer Society for Breast Cancer Research. At Daisy’s request a private service for immediate family and close friends will take place. In living memory of Daisy, a memorial planting will be made by W. J. Jones & Son Funeral Home.
