NINA CROSLAND

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother, Nina Crosland.  She was 96 years old. Nina was predeceased by her husband, George, in 1974; also her two sisters, Irene and Hazel, and brother Renel. Nina is survived by her two sons, James (Sinikka) Crosland of Westbank and Greg (Glenys) Crosland of Ft. McMurray; six grandchildren, Reed (Carol) Crosland of Kelowna, Grant (Marina) Crosland of Kamloops, Kyle (Anna) Crosland of Kelowna, Carmen Crosland of Westbank, Gregory A. (Melanie) Crosland and Cheryl Crosland of Ft. McMurray; five great grandchildren, Rai-Lyn, Colton, Michael, Dustin, and Austin; and two sisters, Verona Anderson of Burnaby and Ilo Edbom of Winnipeg. Nina was born in Piney, Manitoba, on Aug. 29, 1912.  She moved with her family to Burnaby, B.C., in 1954, then to Campbell River in 1960, finally settling in Kelowna in 1966.  She was a past Worthy Matron of the Eastern Star for 65 years. Nina was a loving mother and grandmother who was always there for us. We will miss you dearly
