It is with heavy hearts that we need to tell everyone that our mother, our friend, passed away on November 8, 2013. 

She was born in Dryden, Ontario on November 17, 1927 and moved to Vancouver in 1951. After Dad’s passing in 1993,

we moved her to Kelowna to be closer to us.  Mom

is survived by her daughters Valerie (Lloyd) Hedstrom, Vicki (Dave) Osmond and Son Richard (Holly) Toews; 9 grandchildren; and 9 great grandchildren. Out of 7

siblings, Mom is survived by her brother Bert (deceased wife, Lorraine) and Lonnie Sherwood of White Rock; and sister Connie (Dave Gillespie) of Reno, Nevada. Mom loved to share her knowledge, wisdom, and her opinions. She was

a caring and loving woman, she loved to walk, read and have the odd nip of scotch.  There will be no service at Mom’s request.  Donations may be made to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation – 1212 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V2.  We would like to thank the caring nurses

and staff at Spring Valley Care Home where Mom

lived for the past year.
