Wilma Evelyn JUST

JUST, WILMA EVELYN

We are shocked and deeply saddened by the passing away of my beautiful wife, Wilma, on March 26, 2016, at the age of 75.  She was always cheerful, with a fetching smile.  Her giving nature contributed to an RN nursing career. She received her degree in the first nursing class at the Branson Hospital in

Toronto, Ontario.  She was also head nurse at Walla Walla General Hospital in Washington and at Loma Linda University Medical Center in California.  Although she was in charge, she preferred the one on one personal touch patient care.  Wilma was solid gold–very unselfish, always others first. She recently said that she wished she could trade her life with our recently deceased 14 year old

beautiful granddaughter, Lindsey Rose Just.  They loved each other and shared a bond. After retirement she volunteered service with the Pathfinder Club, Red Cross, Community theatre, led Cradle Roll Sabbath School and visited the elderly in their homes.  Again, she was always cheerful through her many medical challenges.  God will reward her greatly.  She is sleeping peacefully, awaiting the call of the Life Giver. Left to mourn Wilma is Gerry,

her loving husband of 53 years, son Mark (Cindy Holdal Just) of Anchorage, Alaska, grandson Lucas Allen Just of Anchorage, daughter Kelly Ann Just of Seattle, Washington, sister Linda Toop of Toronto, an uncle, aunts, cousins,

nieces and nephews.  Predeceased by her parents Lionel and Margaret West of Oshawa, Ontario, and granddaughter Lindsey Rose Just of Anchorage. A memorial service will

be held Sabbath(Saturday) April 30, 2016 at 3 pm at

Rutland SDA Church, 130 Gerstmar Road, Kelowna, B.C.  In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the the Canadian Diabetes Foundation, and to Make A

Wish Foundations of both British Columbia and

Washington-Alaska. Finally, the family wishes to thank

the doctors and nurses of ICU and 4B of Kelowna

General Hospital for the extraordinary care Wilma

received!  We are also thankful to the members

of the Fire department and Ambulance for

their quick response.
