Belanger and myriads of cousin. Predeceased by

grandfather Peter Wickenheiser and her uncle Peter

Wickenheiser.  Emily was born on Good Friday, March 28, 1986 in Kelowna, where she lived out her life. She faced a great many challenges which she endured with tenacity.  Emily was happiest when surrounded by her favourite toys, including: balloons, plastic hangers and small brightly

coloured toys.  She greatly enjoyed new clothes, shoes

and beaded necklaces like any real girly–girl. 

This little angel seemed to bring happiness to everyone who knew her and somehow managed to wrap every

last one of us around her fingers! 

We all have this in common: we loved her like

crazy, we shared her, we enjoyed her company and her

endearing ways, and we will all miss her immeasurably.  Emily, you’re our hero.  We love you so much. 

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, May 11, 2012
