Mom passed away peacefully surrounded with family at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Saturday, December 19, 2015.
Mom was born in Mossbank, SK to Michael and Mary Pawluk and was 1 of 8 siblings.
She was a proud Prairie Girl….loving the wheat fields, the Rough Riders and curling.
Mom now joined her loving husband Harvey and their first son Bobby. Leaving behind 5 kids to carry on the Copeland legacy; Ken (Leslie), Cheryle (Anthony), Mark (Brenda), Sandra (Rick), Laura (Russ) and daughter-in-law Barbara. Mom was blessed with 9 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
Mom spent most of her life as a dedicated military wife.
Our many cousins would all agree that she was the best Aunty in the world. No one ever went home hungry. She was known for her famous perogies and cabbage rolls.
Mom loved working outside in her little rubber boots and her gardens were always beautiful.
She was a proud member of the Ladies Auxiliary Comox Legion Branch and a loyal member of the Comox United Church.
Above all she was an incredible, loving mother. We will miss you dearly.
Love you Mom. xxo
