(July 26th,1939 June 9th, 2008.) It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister. She lost her courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer on June 9th, 2008. She always showed us the importance of putting family first. She was taken from us far too soon, but we are happy that she is now free of pain, and at peace. You will be forever missed and loved. May the angels always watch over and protect you. Love,( Children) Roxanne, Sheila, Alice, Geraldine, David, Richard. (Grandchildren) Gordon, Jessie, Robyn, Chelsy, Kyle, Kevin, Dustyn, Eric, Sara. (Great Grandchildren) Austyn, Chaz. ( Sisters) Rosie, Annie, Alice and Shirley, Cousin Lena, numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. As per Ritas request, there will be no memorial service. Thank you to the staff at Douglas Fir, Cottonwoods Extended Care, for their tenderness and compassion during our Mothers stay. You made the last few weeks very comfortable for her. We will always be eternally grateful. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society,1633 Pandosy Street, Kelowna, BC V1Y 1P6.
