Mavis Alberta Gabelhouse

GABELHOUSE, MAVIS ALBERTA

December 12, 1913 – September 14, 2011

A great lady, Mavis passed

peacefully in the loving care of family and staff at Sunpointe

Village. Predeceased by her

husband of 56 years, Dan, in 1992. Mavis lived for her

family, Carol, David (Marla),

Dennis (Gwen) and Cheryl

(Harry), plus many beloved

grandchildren and great

grandchildren. Mavis always looked forward to family

visits and outings as well as

important family occasions for fun and laughter. Her favourite pastimes were baking and

shopping, both she did very well! Her many picture perfect pies were a favourite as well as her delicious cinnamon buns. She loved buying Christmas and birthday gifts and

Orchard Park Mall was almost her second home for many years. Her parents, Ada and George Booth, immigrated from England to Alberta and she spent most of her life working and raising her family in Edmonton, where she was

employed by the University Hospital, Edmonton Public School Board and Links Clinic. Mavis and Dan retired to

Kelowna in 1974 and loved their home on the creek and life in the Okanagan. A thanksgiving tea party will be held at Sunpointe Village to thank the wonderful staff who cared for Mom over the past seven years. A family dinner is also planned at the Kelowna Golf & Country Club, her favourite place to dine. Condolences may be sent to the family at

gabelhouse@shaw.ca. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Kelowna Food Bank, 1265 Ellis Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 1Z7
