Survived also by her sisters Joy (Raymond) and Linda (Danny). Kind and caring, she supported and found great joy in participating in the active lives of her grandchildren.

Her hospitality and kindness touched all who entered her home. Special thanks to the doctors and nurses of the critical care unit at Kelowna General Hospital. Their professionalism and compassion softened a difficult time. A service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 3, 2009 at the Kingdom Hall located at 1039 KLO Road, Kelowna.
