Our mom passed away in her sleep on September 29 in the Nanaimo Regional Hospital with family by her side. Mom was predeceased by her husband Dick in November 1959. She is survived by her brother, Phil Robertson (Helen) of Qualicum, her sons Gordon of Nanaimo and Ray (Ruth) of Celista, BC and several nieces and nephews.

Mom was born in Cumberland and grew up in Port Alberni, It was here she met and married her husband, Dick. They moved from Port Alberni to Courtney and then to Nanaimo where they raised their boys.

Mom spent over twenty five years involved with the ‘Meals on Wheels’ program, she was also a life member of the Nanaimo Lawn Bowling Club; she spent many happy hours on the green enjoying the competition and the comradery of her favourite sport.

Thank you to Mom’s two very good friends Mona and Pat for all the support they provided her over the years. Thank you also to the staff on 6 West at Nanaimo Regional Hospital.
