Wilma Dean (Stamper)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, Wilma Dean (nee Stamper) on October 24, 2015.

Wilma was born in Saskatoon. She, with her parents and sister, moved to Burnaby in 1941. There she met Andy, the love of her life, in 1945. They celebrated 65 years of marriage on January 23, 2015. When Andy retired in 1990, they moved to Galiano Island where together they enjoyed golfing and spending time with their visiting children and grandchildren. In 1998 they moved to Comox to be closer to where two of their sons had settled.

Wilma is survived by her husband Andy; 3 sons Vernon (Brenda), Terry (Shirley) and Brad (Vicki), grandchildren Lauren, Jaclyn, Nicole, Cameron, Amanda, Lauren, Rob (Lori) and Alexis, sister Esther Donnelly (Ernie) and many nieces and nephews. As well as her little companion Cody.

Mom was always there for us when we needed guidance and support. We will all miss her very much and she will remain in our hearts forever. We love you Mom.

A private family gathering was held in her honour.
