June 20, 2007
On Wednesday, June 20, 2007, Verona Marie Andrew passed away peacefully at the age of 94 years at the Campbell River Hospital.
Verona was predeceased by her husband, George Andrew in 1985, her sisters Hazel Sigsworth and Alaska Peterson, her brother Gordon Self, her parents Elmore and Marie Self, her step-mother Elizabeth Self and her friend Hank Halstad.
Verona will be sadly missed by her son Bill (Irene) of Campbell River, daughter Lynn Lewis (Bill) of Winfield, BC, her grandchildren Chris (Carla), Suzanne (Ryan), Mark (Sheila), Michael (Taylor) and Scott and by her great-grandchildren Julie, Jordan, Jade and Elliott. Also many nieces and nephews.
Verona and George moved to Campbell River in 1985 and, following George’s passing, she soon became an active member of the community. She was a member of the United Church Ladies group, the Order of the Eastern Star and several bridge and crib groups. She loved to travel and only gave it up when her health made travel more difficult.
Verona’s family are extremely grateful to the staff at the Campbell River Hospital, Dr. Duncan Douglas, Rev. Bert Ramsey and all of Verona’s friends for their love and support especially during the past two months.
A memorial service will be held at the Campbell River United Church, 415 Pinecrest Road, on Tuesday, July 3, 2007, at 1:00pm with Rev. Bert Ramsey officiating.
