Frieda Wood

February 15, 1932 – January 5, 2016

We are sad to announce the passing of Frieda Wood on January 5, 2016 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox.

Frieda was predeceased by her infant daughter Lorraine and husband John. She is survived by her son Tony (Janice) Wood, daughters; Heather (Bert) Broere and Anita (Ben) Nickel, grandchildren; Matthew, Adam Broere, Benjamin, Violet and Laurie Anne Nickel; great-grandchildren John, Sage, Jessica and Jocalyn, Vanessa, Savanna and Jade.

Frieda was a brilliant artist who loved gardening, art and classical music. She loved adventure whether it be locally or afar and she travelled to many places all over the world, most recently to Newfoundland with her life long friend Mavrice Foord, which was her last great adventure, and in this photo you can clearly see her joy on that trip. All flowers were Frieda’s favourite and she would often say “a weed is nothing but an unloved flower.”

A gathering of family and friends to be announced in the spring when her garden is at its best.
