She is survived and will be lovingly missed by her son Ken (Angie) Price; daughters Ann Roach and Cindy (Chris) Lowrey; grandchildren Sieva, Mahatta, Tanner and Cheyann; brother Melvin; sisters Joann and Vivian, as well as her extended family and dear friend, Margaret Smith.

Special thanks to Dr. Gornall, Bernice her Home Care Aid, The Pharmacy Staff at Shoppers Drug Mart, Victoria General Hospital 400 South, St. John Ambulance and the V.I.H.A. nurses for all of their care and kindness.

A gathering of family and friends in celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, February 15th, 11:30am at Comox Band Hall, Dyke Road, Comox, with refreshments to follow.
