December 28, 1926 – May 28, 2015
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mom, Thelma Brawner.
Thelma was predeceased by two husbands, Bill Goodman and Lawrence Brawner, brothers Bobby and Kenny Thurlborn. She is survived by her children Corinne (Shaun), Greg (Annagret), her grandchildren Stacia and Brock, sister Vera, brother Ernie (Marg) and their families.
Thelma was passionate about her animals and gardening, especially her raspberries, where you could always find a jar of jam in her cupboards. Mom will always be remembered for her kind heart and volunteering many hours with the BC Cancer Society and Travellers Outreach Program after her retirement with Canada Post as a letter carrier. Thelma spent her last few years living at New Horizons where she was always eager to help out and gained the title “Best Shopper” from the staff and other residents.
A “Celebration of Life” tea in Thelma’s memory will be held on July 16, 2015 at Dolphin’s Resort between 1:00-3:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the S.P.C.A. or BC Cancer Society.
