PORTER, Erin Leigh (nee Corbett)

March 16, 1966 – Vancouver, BC
August 6, 2017 – Calgary, AB

It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Erin Porter on Sunday, August 6, 2017 at the age of 51.

Erin had a passion for gardening and animals, particularly cats; she was the mother to many fur babies. She enjoyed travelling, especially to her favourite island of Maui, where her love of water, sun and sand were perfectly mixed. While living in Vancouver, she enjoyed figure skating and competitive swimming at the North Shore Winter Club. In her working career, she was a flight attendant for Canadian Airlines and worked in retail and the hospitality industry.

Erin is survived by her loving partner Jim; her parents, Marg and Al; her sister Jill and sister-in-law Heather; as well as numerous relatives in Winnipeg.

The family expresses their sincere gratitude and thanks to her doctors and specialists and the entire medical and support staff in unit 66 at the South Health Campus with special recognition to Lay Minister Wilma.

  5. Al, Marg and Jill,

    I was shocked and so saddened to read about Erin’s passing. Although I hadn’t seen
    her in a long time she was such an important part of my life growing up. We had a lot of fun together and those memories will be with me always. I’m so sorry for the loss. I am thinking of the three of you and wishing you healing and love.

    Love,
    Susan Martin (Harris)
