RYAN, Nellie (nee Roberts)

Born April 10, 1919, a native daughter of Nanaimo, she was the daughter of Owen and Alice Roberts.

She was predeceased by her husband, Frank in 1981, and was reunited with him on August 24, 2012. Also predeceased by siblings, John, Arthur, Patricia, William, George and Thomas. Left to mourn are her sister, Mae; daughter Brenda (Bill); son, Lloyd (Liz); son, Bruce (Gloria); many nieces and nephews, numerous grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.

Mom and Dad loved Nanaimo and are now, Lord willing, sitting in an immaculate garden. Mom enjoying tea and Dad his pipe.

There will be no service, by Mom’s request, but there will be a small service of committal to place her ashes in the memorial garden at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Nanaimo. A small reception to celebrate the lives of Mom and Dad will follow.

We love and miss you both.
