Lucy Violet Powell

Powell, Lucy Violet

1928 ~ 2006

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our mother, nanny, great-grandmother and friend Lucy Violet Powell on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Lucy was predeceased and is now reunited with her loving husband Ron. She will be dearly missed by her companion and best friend Ernie, as well as his family and by her children Lynn Powell (Jim), Marilyn Springford (Mark), Jackie Bell (Dale), Michelle Powell of Victoria, and her only son Jeffrey Powell (Wendy). She also leaves behind several grandchildren: Jason, Jaquelyn, Cynthia, Jamie, Sheryl, Myra, Amy, Kyle, August, and Lucinda, as well as great-grandchildren: Jeffrey, Joshy, Isabelle, Christian, and Celeste.

Lucy enjoyed nothing more than challenging the one armed bandit and spent a good deal of her life in casinos and the Bingo P alace. When she wasn’t gambling she could often be found working away baking pies and butter tarts or working in her rose garden.

Private cremation arrangements entrusted to COMOX VALLEY FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORIUM, 1101 RYAN ROAD. For those wishing, donations in her memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, 102-1509 Cliffe Avenue, Courtenay, BC V9N 2K6 would be appreciated.
