Ella May PRESTON

PRESTON, Ella May

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Ella May on May 9th, 2008 at Royal Jubilee Hospital In Victoria. She was predeceased by her husband, Russ in 2006, as well as her parents, Esther and Alex Taylor and brother, George. Ella May leaves to cherish her memory daughter Jill Jeffery (Paul), grandson Christopher, her two sisters, Edna Goodfellow (Medicine Hat) and Elinora Marr (Twin Butte) and their families. Ella May was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta on October 7th, 1926. She worked in Kelowna where she met and married Russ on May 9, 1951. They ran businesses in Oliver and later in Campbell River. They were a great team, very involved in the communities they lived in. Ella May and Russ retired in White Rock, and following the death of Russ, Ella May relocated to Victoria in 2006.

The family wishes to thank Dr. J. Scott (White Rock), Dr. D. Bell, Dr. L Smith, Dr. C. von Westarp, (Victoria), and the Nursing Staff of Royal Jubilee Emergency, Area C and 2 Royal for their kind and compassionate care.

No Service by request.

Flowers gratefully declined. Those wishing may donate to the BC Cancer Foundation or the BC Lung Association in Ella May’s memory.
