January 20, 1920 ~ July 28, 2008


My Mother passed away peacefully in the early dawn after a brief illness. Born and raised in England, she retured on many occasions to visit with her sister Myrtle, family members and friends. Following her service in WWII with the British Forces she immigrated to Ontario, Canada. Settling in Caledon, she established a successful horse business and continued to be a celebrated rider. After a change in life’s direction, Mum moved my brother Michael (deceased in 2006) and I to Pender/Saltspring Island, British Columbia. She enjoyed the island life and became involved and well known in the communities. My wife (Karen) . daigjter (Rachelle) and Iwere fortunate enough to have Mum live on the same street in Black Creek, Vancouver Island for the last nine wonderful years.

My mother will also be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by grandchildren Christopher, Jessica, Jordan, as well as relatives, friends and all those who knew hier; she wil forever be in our hearts and memories.

There are just not enough words to express how much I will miss you Mum. All my love, your son Philip.

We gratefully acknowledge the special care given by Dr. Ness and the 3rd floor staff at Campbell River Hospital.

There will not be a service as per her request.
