Theo Jeannine Piercy (No?l)
It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Theo Piercy. She passed away peacefully on March 5th 2011 in her home surrounded by family and friends after a courageous battle with cancer. Theo will always be remembered by her husband of 49 years, Allan, son Bradley (Deborah), daughter Laurenne (Ken), grandchildren Jaron, Kyra and Kyle, siblings, nieces, nephews and other family and friends who loved her dearly. Theo was born in Viking and raised in Westlock, Alberta. After graduation from high school she took her Registered Nurses training at Edmonton General Hospital. From there Theo began her adventures in nursing working in a variety of positions in Baltimore, Honolulu and San Francisco. Theo’s love of adventure then took her to Europe where she joined her sister, Doreen, in Gstaad, Switzerland. Theo spent the next two years working as a nurse in a private girls’ school and spent her free time touring Europe and skiing the Alps. She then moved to France to work as a nurse at a Royal Canadian Air Force base in Marville which is where she met and married her sweetheart. The newlyweds made their way back to Canada and settled in Campbell River in 1964. Theo worked in a variety of positions at the Campbell River hospital for almost 30 years until her retirement in 1994. She loved the west coast, the mountains and ocean, travelling and spoiling her grandchildren. One of her great passions was fishing, always going after the big one.
Theo’s family would like to announce a Celebration of Life which will be held at the Maritime Heritage Centre in Campbell River, BC, on Friday, March 18th, 2011 from 4 to 6 p.m.
Flowers are gratefully declined and donations in her memory may be made to the BC Branch of the Canadian Cancer Association. Condolences to the family may be left at:
