Louise SEARY (nee ROSENBURY)

SEARY, Louise Patricia (nee Rosenbury)

August 26, 1917–April 27, 2014

Louise was born in Hamilton, Ontario and raised in Swift Current, Sask. She moved to Victoria in 1948 as a young woman to work as a legal secretary at the Parliament Buildings. She married Claude Seary in 1952 and spent 48 years as a homemaker at their Glen Lake Rd. residence. In 2000, to be close to her daughter, she bought a lovely condo overlooking Discovery Passage here in Campbell River where she was able to stay until 94 years of age. Her final 2 years were at Yucalta Lodge. Thank you to all that looked out for her at the condo and to all her care-workers over the years. She felt very fortunate to have met each of you. Special hearts to Edie and Judy.

Louise enjoyed reading, sewing, cooking, going out for drives, and had been a member of Greater Victoria Geranium & Fuchsia Society. She liked nothing more than checking out the craft bazaars and antique shops wherever she might be.

Louise is survived by her only child, daughter, Karen King and son-in-law, Rick. grandsons Jason King (Darlene) and Brian King (Tiare) and great-granddaughter Jayden King, all of Campbell River.

There will be a garden tea party at the home of her daughter with friends and family in her memory mid July. The geraniums should be blooming. We hope those that attend will take one of her treasured teacups or china home in exchange for a donation to CR women’s centre. Others may wish to make a donation to their local women‘s charity.

Her ashes will be placed with her mother at Royal Oak Burial Park in Victoria.
