Let’s say goodbye like we said hello in a friendly kind of way (words of an old song). If you are reading this you will know that I am off on the wings of that great white dove. I hope that He has his directions straight as I want to join family and friends gone before me.
I am going to miss my four great grandchildren and the people they have brought to increase my circle of love. Son Duane Groves (Amanda, Carling and Duane Jr.) great grandchildren Lyndon, Hanna and Lilly - the wonderful girls that Duane (Katie) brought to me, Bea (ex-wife), Sherry (Robin, Skylar & Kaleigh) and Joyce. Son Darcy (Glenda) Groves, grandchildren Candace, Chance, Chace, Craig, Joyce, Dillon, Alicia and Calvin. Great grandchildren Tanner, Katelyn and Gryphon. Son David (Wanda) Wilson, children - Darnelle, Colen. Great grands Damon and Jaydon. My dearest daughter Jayne Wilson and great granddaughter Michelle.
Predeceased by infant granddaughter Chelsea (Darcy) and great great-granddaughter Shaylyn (Amanda). Also beautiful 18 year old granddaughter Randi (David’s).
Everybody should have siblings and I am survived by three wonderful sisters Ida (Gerry), Noreen (Bill), Laura (Dennis) and a great group of nieces, nephews and their families. I am predeceased by my dear oldest sister Lila. Also predeceased by pioneer parents Al & Alma Holden and grandparents that were a great influence in my life.
I have had a great life filled with countless kind and interesting people. Met and married two good men and enjoyed the company for several years of two other good men. I haven’t always made good decisions in my life but I am happy to say my children and their families have exceeded my expectations. Jayne and Michelle live close by and are so much fun and help. I have lived in Glenfair from June 1991 to May 2010, it has been a grand experience having met and enjoyed the company of many people, the kindness of the board of directors.
My sincere thanks to my doctor, Dr. Douglas Hamilton and caring staff, also my thanks to Dr. Navratil. Through the kindness of these two gentlemen, I have received the care of many specialists. Special and sincere thanks to Joan Wymer “my homecare love”. Also special and sincere thanks to Ridgeview (Baltic 2nd Floor) for the kindness and great care given to me.
It’s been a great ride everyone and thanks for your part in my life.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Vancouver Children’s Hospital.
