IRENE FULLA

Family is deeply saddened to share news that on Saturday, October 10th, 2015 our dear Mum, Noni and Grand Noni passed away suddenly and peacefully at the age of 88. Mum was predeceased by her father (Ted), her mother (Elfreda) and her dearest husband, Joseph.

She is survived by her son, Ken (Elaine), her daughter Karen (Ed) Beams, grandchildren Rick (Heather) Fulla, Krystal (Wes) Cathcart and Lee Fulla; as well as her precious great grandchildren, Calvin & Cameron Fulla and Kennedy & Alessia Cathcart. Mum also leaves her brother Erling (Eva) Johnson, her sister Ivy Stubbs and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family in Sweden. She will be missed as well by a wealth of dear and special friends who provided years of wonderful memories and much comfort to Mum these last few years. Special thanks to Jim, Heddy, Clare, Roma and Viola; we can’t thank you enough.

Mum was incredibly kind, caring and loving, but also had amazing strength as life was not always easy. Her faith in God was unwavering and was her lifeline. She also appreciated the support of family and special friends in getting through those tough patches. Mum loved gardening and was especially proud of her beautiful dahlias. She also excelled at sewing, knitting, crocheting and made a fabulous strawberry pie. Mum could not have been prouder of her children and grandchildren, and her great grandchildren brought her a world of joy.

Special thank you to Dr. Margot Walker, Dr. Nuamah, Nanaimo Home Support and staff of NRGH Floors 1 & 5, as well as Dr. Wallis and all the incredible staff at Malaspina Gardens, who provided such loving and compassionate care to Mum these past 3 months.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 5th, 2015 at 1:00 pm at Departure Bay Baptist Church, 3510 Departure Bay Road, Nanaimo. Flowers gratefully declined. If you wish, donations can be made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada to honour Mum’s great granddaughter, Kennedy or to a charity of your choice.
