PELTER, Irene Ruth

October 13, 1927 – June 3, 2013

Irene remained strong willed to the end, dying with family by her side. Predeceased by her husband, Lou (1999); grandson, Nathan Pelter (2000), and other family members. Survived and lovingly remembered by sons: Wayne, Lyle; daughter, Diane (Gerald) Burt; grandsons, Casey Pelter, Owen and Colton Burt; sister, Miriam Scott; brother, Don (Irene) Leischner; brother-in-law, Al Pelter, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Irene was born in Piapot, Sask, moving to Vancouver Island where she met and married her loving husband, Lou in 1948. They raised their family and resided in Cassidy until 1993, when they relocated to Nanaimo. Irene was a wonderful wife, mother, friend and caregiver to all. She created a home where family and friends were always welcome to enjoy a meal, a drink AND conversation. Irene’s positive and upbeat personality reflected in her many involvements in the home and community.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Nanaimo Sands Funeral Chapel, 1 Newcastle Avenue, Friday, June 14, 2013 at 2p.m.

The family wish to thank Dr. Forrester and the staff in Cottage #2 Wexford Creek for the care and compassion that was given to Irene.
