With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our loving mother and grandmother, Irene Tyler. She is survived, cherished, and loved immensely by her 2 daughters Beth and Sharon (Jeff) and grandchildren Nicole and Kyle. Mom was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and as a teenager moved to Victoria, BC with her family. It was on Vancouver Island where she met the love of her life, Chuck. Our family moved to Chilliwack in 1972 when Dad was transferred in his job. Mom was an elementary school teacher for 30 years, first in Sydney BC and then in Chilliwack. Her greatest joy and happiness in life was her husband and daughters, and later, her grandchildren. She spent the first 25 years of her long retirement with Dad, travelling and enjoying life to the fullest until his illness and passing in 2005.
Although Mom had many serious health issues the last number of years, she maintained her infectious smile and positive attitude and always offering support and friendship to those she met. For the last few years, she lived at the Lynnwood in Chilliwack where she made many new friends and often referred to them as family. Mom got a lot of enjoyment and love out of her “granddog” Lexi who brought her comfort at her most difficult times and many days during stays at the hospital. Mom was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
We would like to extend our thanks to the staff at the Lynnwood who assisted in making moms final years so enjoyable. We will be having a Celebration of Life at the Lynnwood on Thursday, December 4, 2014 at 1:30pm. Online condolences may be offered at www.woodlawn-mtcheam.ca.
