HUDSON, Nancy Lillian (nee Furk)
Nancy passed away on August 28, 2011 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox, BC. Second child of Don & Agnes Furk, Nancy was born in Port Alberni on March 31, 1947, where she resided until 12 years of age when Don (father) was transferred to Harmac Div. of MacMillan and Bloedel in Nanaimo.
Here she continued Classical Piano Lessons, reaching Grade 8 of Royal Toronto Conservatory Program while in her junior year at Nanaimo Senior Secondary. After graduation, she enrolled in the faculty of Ed. At UVic, where after 3 years was granted a letter of permission to teach Elementary School and she did so at Frank Hobbs Elementary in Victoria for the next five years. In 1970, Nancy wed her high school sweetheart, Terry and became his constant companion from then on. After moving to the Comox Valley in 1973, Nancy continued her teaching career in the New Canadians Program at Glacier View Elementary for a short time until motherhood and homemaking became her singular devotion. She liked Scottish Country dancing and was intrigued by the poetry of the motions. An excellent seamstress she sewed clothes for herself and later her 3 children. She was the devoted wife of the husband of her youth for 41 years and loving mother of her ‘bairns’ for whom she was always there, even to the last few days of her life. Early in 2011, Nancy was diagnosed with terminal cancer and finally after suffering a severe stroke in late August was hospitalized. A few days later, on August 28, with her family by her side she passed away into the arms of our savior, JESUS CHRIST, and is at Peace at last.
