We are sad to announce that Cora passed away at home, at the age of 88, on Tuesday afternoon, September 2, 2014.  Cora was born in Vulcan, AB, on June 26, 1926.  She moved with her family to Dunster, BC, where they lived for some years, before she moved to Pleasant Valley (Nanaimo), to live with friends and help care for their young children.  While there she met and subsequently married Harold Dines in July 1947.  They lived at Green Lake for many years, and raised four children.  Cora worked as a telephone operator at BC Tel for approximately thirty years before she retired to help look after her grandchildren.

Predeceased by husband Harold in 1991, she is survived by two daughters, Shiela (Ieuan) and Lindy, and two sons Rick (Carol) and Larry.  Also her beloved grandchildren Zack (Laurie), Craig, and Sydni (Chase), and her very special new great-granddaughter Maddison.  Also many nieces and nephews.
