Gladys May (HAP) Chapman


July 8, 1921 – June 14, 2013

It is with a great deal

of sadness that we

announce the peaceful passing of our Mum. 

Mum is survived by 3

children Ken (Adrienne)

of Armstrong, Ian (Gwen) of Kelowna and Sheilagh (Norm) Jackson of Winfield; seven grandchildren,

Sarah (Victor) Fellegi of Cochrane, Alberta, Jeremy (Sabrina) Chapman of

Kelowna, Kimberly (Jason) Page of Durham N.

Carolina, Josh of Fort Nelson B.C., Bryan (Tracy) Jackson and Scott (Niki) Jackson of Winfield, Emily (Norton) Hunt

of Fort St. John; seven great grandchildren Liam, Coen,

and Lukas Fellegi, Elodie and Callum Page and Eli

Chapman and Linden Hiscox. Mum was predeceased

by her husband Eric of 64 years in 2007 and her

step-brother Herbert Farris in 1991. 

Mum was born and raised in Okanagan Mission and

lived her entire life in Kelowna. Active in her Parish of

St. Andrews Anglican Church, she belonged to the ACW, the Altar Guild and in the Choir for many years. She loved

to paint and was a founding member of the Kelowna

Pallette Club and Watercolour Guild. Mum was blessed

with a cheerful disposition, a ready smile and a kind word

to anyone. We were fortunate to have her as a Mum.

A celebration of Gladys’ life will be held on Thursday,

June 27 2013 at 2:00 pm at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, 4619 Lakeshore Road, Reverend Canon Catherine Hall

officiating.  Mum will be interred beside Eric in

St. Andrew’s cemetery.  Reception will follow in the

church Hall. The family wishes to thank the wonderful

staff at Missionwood, her caregivers from We Care,

especially Olga Markwart and the Parish family of

St. Andrew’s. In lieu of flowers a donation may be

made to the Heart and Stroke foundation or Central

Okanagan Hospice Association – Hospice House.
