Jillian Jane BURNELL

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jillian Jane Burnell on February 11, 2008 at the age of 94. Our mother was predeceased by her husbands, Wing Commander Harold Burnell and Robert Gore. Her loss leaves a huge hole in the hearts of her family: her daughters Judy McGladdery (Sam), Rosalind Burnell (Glenn DeGregorio), her son John Gore (Yolande), her grandchildren Kevin McGladdery, Sara Relling (Thomas), Monika Burrell (Rob), Joel Hamm (Tracey), and Aerin, Caitlin and Simon Gore. Nana had five great grandchildren: Liam, Jillian, Ryan, Mark and newly born Eric, whom she had not yet met. Mum always met life head on with class, spirit, and a witty sense of fun. She will be remembered by many for her elegant style, her curiosity, her competitive nature, and her wonderful smile. She will be sorely missed. A celebration of her life will be held at The Wedgewood, 1045 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna BC, on Saturday, February 23rd, at 1 oclock. Refreshments will be served.
