Mom devoted her life to her family. She was always there to give a helping hand. Her motto was “always be kind” “do no harm”.
Mom during her lifetime worked at many jobs, Pearce's Red and White, Seymour's Men's and Ladies Wear, Saul's, The Red Caboose, Canada Dry and owning her own store Irene's Milk Store.
Holidays were spent with Mom cooking up a storm. Music filled the air with her singing, playing the piano or guitar with friends Len Surtees on violin, Norma Surtees on spoons and her brothers Leo and Hector on violin and her sister Aline on spoons. Everyone was welcome to join in. These were joyous times.
Mom loved camping, playing cards, dancing, doing all kinds of crafts, travelling and socializing. She had finally found a dancing partner in Jean. She loved the cottage life both at Round Lake and in Sessekinika.
We shall miss her smile, her kind ways, she was always there when we needed her. We shall remember you Mom and try to strive by your motto of “Always be kind, do no harm.” Until we meet again, we love you.
The family wishes to thank All the Staff at Teck Pioneer Residence for the care they provided.
A special thank you to Dr. Jessica Moore and Suzanne Perreault Nurse Practitioner for the support and excellent care you provided not only to Mom but to her family members as well.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held in the Spring.
