November 3, 1927 - July 22, 2023
In loving memory ~
Born on November 3, 1927, in Vanderhoof, B.C. Predeceased by brothers Ray, Russell, sister Marion and daughter Jennifer. Raised in Vanderhoof mom moved to Victoria to become a registered nurse. While in training Mom met and married Harold. Together they moved to Parksville and started a family.
The early sixties saw them move to Courtenay where mom worked as an RN at St. Joseph's Hospital in the emergency ward as well as other areas for a short time. Retiring from nursing Mom enjoyed painting, drawing, playing the accordion, and travelling around B.C. Mom was a cancer survivor from the early eighties. She volunteered at St. Georges united church in various areas including the library there.
Huge thanks to all the amazing home care teams that looked after Mom following her stroke. Thanks to Doctor Howard and the remarkable nursing team at Comox Valley Hospital.
