April 1, 1922 –April 6, 2013
It is with much sadness that we announce our beloved mother Muriel Christine Cameron passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Saturday April 6, 2013.
Mom was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia on April 1, 1922 and was predeceased by her husband Frank after 38 years of marriage. She was also predeceased by her brothers Carl, Thomas, Cecil and her sister Florence; and her parents Sara and Thomas MacLaren.
Mom married Francis Cameron on September 15, 1947 and they lived in Beaver Bank, Nova Scotia until moving to Courtenay in August 1964. Mom worked in retail sales at Eaton’s Department store and then for over 20 years at Crosby’s Jewellery Store (Graham’s Jewellers).
Mom is survived by her four children; David Cameron (Moira), Blair Cameron (Nel), Michael Cameron (Brenda) and MaryLea Reid (John). She was very proud of her grandchildren: Morgan, Ainsley (Nathaniel), Allison, Elizabeth, Christopher (Andreanna), Jordan (Jessica), Brianna, Emily and Christine and her beloved great grandchildren Issac, Ava, (their father Justin), Alexa, and Riley.
Mom was a loving and generous mother and grandmother and a beloved friend to many. She loved to go for walks and spend time with her children and grandchildren. She loved to cook and was always ready to help anyone in need. She will be remembered for her strength, her thoughtfulness and her deep compassion.
We wish to thank the staff at St. Joseph’s The Views in Comox for the care they provided to Mom and especially her former daughter-in-law Janet Fletcher.
A Funeral Mass is being held at 1pm on April 11, 2013 at Christ The King Catholic Church, 1599 Tunner Drive, Courtenay, B.C. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Views, Comox, BC.
