December 22, 1931 – December 27, 2014
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dearly loved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Verna. She passed away peacefully with her daughters by her side at the age 83 years.
Mom was an avid bingo player, needlepoint, petit point and expert knitter. She made many afghans and sweaters over the years for friends and family. She loved to travel and was fortunate to venture to Jamaica, Mexico, Las Vegas and Alaska in the last two years. We will miss her sense of humor, strength, guidance and her heart of gold.
Mom leaves behind her daughters Sylvia (John) Greig, and Linda (Fred) Greig; her grandchildren Amanda Casagranda, Callan (Brittany) Greig, Curtis (Melissa) Greig, Kayla (Brad) Skerry; and her great-grandchildren Adam and Emma Greig, Braiden and Marlee Casagranda. She is also survived by her sister Shirley Renner and many nieces and nephews. Mom is united once again with her beloved husband Neil in Heaven, who passed away in August 2004.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt gratitude for the many long-term friendships she endured over the years while she lived in Okotoks and Calgary. She cherished and loved every one of them.
As per Mom’s request, no service will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Foothills Country Hospice Society, P.O. Box 274, 322001 – 32 Street, Okotoks, AB T1S 1A5. Words cannot express how eternally grateful we are to the Hospice staff and her friends for the love, care and support that they gave mom and us in the last few weeks.
