October 23, 1955 – February 20, 2015
Born in Nanaimo, moved with family to Kelsey Bay, then Campbell River for high school. After marriage moved to Prince George – passed away peacefully in Surrey Memorial Hospital after a short and fierce battle with an aggressive cancer.
She is survived by sons Matt (Kayla and Seth) and their mother Sara, Tyler (Amy d.), Caleb, Sophie and Sammy, David (Janine), Tony, Shayla, Tyler and Cooper. Her siblings Cindy Parsons of Nanaimo, Doug (Brenda) Guderjan and Kevin Guderjan. Her mom Patricia Scott (Ken), her dad Wally Guderjan, all of Campbell River as well as numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews and a host of friends and co-workers from Fortis Gas, already missing her.
An amazing girl, beloved big “sis,” not afraid to try new things such as swimming across McIvor Lake with her sister, white water rafting and joining a Toastmasters club. She loved fried oysters, eating chocolate, purple irises, her nine grandchildren, swimming, travel, paddling a canoe, summers at Camp Homewood, a day at the beach with siblings, jewellery; especially if it was a bargain, and reading mysteries. However, she disliked most orange and green veggies, washing dishes, and a real biggie to her was missing sleep.
She was comfortable singing in any venue and enjoyed being part of a worship team, very much relaxed in a leadership role but most of all, she loved being a mom and grandma.
We will miss forever her quirky humour and laughter. She left us too soon. We were not done with her.
“Sunday’s child is fair of face”
