HOLDSWORTH; Winifred Irene
August 10, 1920 – May 4, 2016
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great-great-grandmother Irene Holdsworth. Mom was predeceased by her loving husband Len and daughter Isabelle Leza, brothers Jack and Ron Reggie and her sister Margaret. She was born in Edmonton, Alberta and moved to BC with her parents at an early age. Spending much of her youth and early adult life in Vancouver. Always putting family first she remained a committed homemaker throughout her life. In 1952 mom and dad with children in tow, moved to Chilliwack where the family has continued to live except for short stays in Kelowna and Williams Lake.
Always the consummate fine lady, mom was often seen out dressed for the city, purse in hand keeping company with our dad while he fished, quite the site! Although her final years were lived at Valley Haven where she was always attended to by her very caring nurses, she always kept her heir of dignity and great sense of humour.
Mom is survived by her loving sons Ronald Gary and Robert (Estee Joy), brother Kenny, as well as grandsons Keith (Darcie) and Wes. Also left to miss her are granddaughters Patricia (Norm), Joanne (Gerry), Linda (Melvin) and Tammy. Eleven great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
All who knew mom will miss her dearly.
A graveside service was held at 2pm on Monday 9th, 2016 at Little Mountain Legion Cemetery.
