Maria Sawatsky (Jorgensen)

October 1, 1932 – October 14, 2016

Our little Mom, faithful to the Lord, passed quietly to his arms, with her children by her side. All the stories have been told. All the hugs given out. All the last instructions given … and then given again. Mom was a huge part of our lives, we are going to miss her tremendously, but are glad that her trial is over and now she can rest. Thank you, Dr. Auger, Dr. Nelson and Dr. Blood (Victoria) for your compassionate care. Thank you, Central Home Care Nursing. What we would have done without you this year we don’t know. Much gratitude. To Mom’s friends and church family, the love and support you have given has been amazing. There are no words of appreciation that are enough. Left to mourn: Brothers of Mom, Manuel (Angelina and family) and Jesus (and family) Sepulveda; Son, Steven Wood (Gloria); Daughters, Anna Jorgensen and Linda Anderson; Grandchildren, Christie Tipper Brown (Jim), Tania Zandvliet (John), Paul Anderson, Roxanne Chicalo and Moses Garcia; Great-grandchildren, Caitlynn Zandvliet and Tyler Zandvliet.

There will be a Service of Remembrance at Sutton’s Campbell River Funeral Home on Saturday, October 29th at 1:00pm with a reception to follow.
