Saunders, Edith Mable

(née Hollett)

June 5, 1936 – January 29, 2014

It is with great sorrow and regret that we announce the passing of Mable Saunders on January 29th, 2014. Surrounded by her loving family, she went peacefully to join her brother, Rex, and Mom and Dad.

Mable leaves behind her devoted husband, Don; son, Brad; daughters, Gale (Keith) Ranger and Bonnie (Tony) Somogyvari. She will be sadly missed by her five grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, sisters, Elsie and Jean, and all their families.

Mable was born in Newfoundland and moved out with her family to Nanaimo when she was eight years old. She met the love of her life, Don Saunders, in 1956 and was married at St. Andrews United Church in 1957. Living in Nanaimo from 1965 until present day, she was a devoted mother and was full of love for all her children. She loved to spend her summers up at Tall Timbers Resort on Sproat Lake where she and Don made many wonderful friends.

Mable’s family would like to express their appreciation for the kindness and caring given by the nurses and doctors at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Mable is at peace now, no longer suffering from the devastating illnesses that ravaged her poor body. She will always be remembered as a generous and kind human being with a wonderful sense of humor, which she kept until her dying day.

In lieu of flowers, the family would request that a donation be made, in Mable’s memory, to the Canadian Liver Foundation.
