July 11, 1935 – Dec. 28, 2012
A rainy night in December was mom’s last in this life. She left us then and went to her heavenly home. At peace now after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Born in Brightstone, Manitoba, the oldest of five girls, she grew up on the farm before settling in Winnipeg. It was there that she met the love of her life and in 1957 married John.
Blessed with two children they moved west to Vancouver in 1965 where they completed their family being blessed with two more children. Family was the most important thing in mom’s life and we shared countless good times through the years which passed all too quickly.
Mom and dad retired to Chilliwack, where they spent their remaining years together. She went to her well-deserved rest with her family by her side.
She is lovingly remembered by her husband John; children: Debbie, Darren (Karin), Drake (Sarah), Darlene (Dennis); and grandchildren: Alexandra, Matthew, Kirsten, Rebecca, Brittany and John. She also leaves behind four loving sisters and their families.
Service will be held at Sardis Community Church at 45625 South Sumas Rd. in Chilliwack.
Donations to the BC Cancer Foundation are requested in lieu of flowers.
A light has gone out of our lives, but now burns brightly in heaven.
