Cleone Moss Gosset (Nee Colban)

Cleone Moss Gosset (Nee Colban)



Drifted peacefully away with her family at her side on

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

at the age of 91 years.  She

is survived by her loving

family: two daughters, Gail Hall (Alan) of Vernon, Laura Gosset (Don Searle) of

Kelowna; two sons, Bill

Gosset of Vancouver; and Wallace Gosset (Jo) of

Clinton; eleven grandchildren, David, Michelle (John),

Christy (Ladd), Melissa, Tom (Jayme), Tara (Paul), Danny, Jenny, Suzie, Nathaniel,

Joshua; ten great grandchildren and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Allen, her younger brothers, Jack and Ralph and her eldest son, Dennis,

who tragically perished at the age of 14.

Cleone was born and raised in Edmonton, AB.  Upon her marriage to Allen Gosset, she moved to Stony Plain and Spruce Grove, AB before eventually retiring to the sunny Okanagan.  Her busy life revolved around her family, her home and her garden.  Together Mom and Dad raised

racehorses, travelled extensively, yet still found time to

enjoy the growing number of grandchildren and great

grandchildren.  She loved fine literature, instilling the

appreciation of it in her children.  Music filled her life and

her passion for it was contagious

We were blessed to have had such a strong and wise

woman as our mother.  She had the unassailable ability to embrace life’s hurdles and roll with the punches, laughing at the blows – with a sense of humour that would crack

up even the most solemn.

We would like to extend sincere thanks to the staff at

Orchard Manor, Hawthorn Park for their loving care of mom over the years.  We also wish to thank Dr. Jones and the nursing staff on 2 East at KGH for their support of our family and care of mom with such dignity and compassion.

A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, January 6, 2012 at 10:00 am at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.  Interment to take place in Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, memorial

donations may be made to Project Literacy-Kelowna,

205-591 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5N9
