Selma FLEMING

Selma (Rempel) Fleming passed away on May 27th, 2014 in Chilliwack. Her strong faith, her love of family, and her unfailing need to give, sustained her throughout her life. She baked bread to give away just the week before her death. Predeceased by her husband Henry, of over 50 years, in 1989, Selma and Henry were noted for their legendary hospitality. The coffee pot was always on and the pie by the yard still hot from the oven! She is survived by her five children, Florence (Harold) Gienger, Dorothy Swanson, Victoria (Barrie) Richardson, Mamie (Lorne) Lees and Terry (Gwen) Fleming. Also 9 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren, all of whom had a unique relationship with Grandma Fleming and she will be truly missed, especially by Mamie, Tracee and Nikcole who did so much for her during the last decade of her life. Selma is also survived by 2 brothers, Ted from Samish Island, Washington, and Bernie from St. Albert, Alberta. Selma’s family hosted a celebration for her last August in honour of her 100th birthday. This celebration was attended by more than 200 family and friends who came from near and far to celebrate this remarkable lady and her many achievements in her lifetime. We wish to thank all those that attended and helped to make this day so special for Selma and her family. We strongly felt it was important to honour her while she was alive to hear the accolades from family and friends than to do so after her death. The Fleming family wishes to express their heartfelt appreciation to the staff at the Birchwood, for the great care towards our mother. A private gathering will be held by immediate family at a later date. Anyone wishing to make a donation in her name may do so to her favourite charities, the Salvation Army or the MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) or a charity of your choice.
