August 24, 1937 – October 14, 2009
With broken hearts, we bade you farewell. Our gentle character that quietly absorbed so many adversities in life without complaint.
Your many talents were always unselfishly shared. Your creation of beautiful oil paintings with only family in mind will be treasured always. We loved your passion for sports in which you championed in diving and cycling, and your enthusiasm in assisting the Commonwealth Games and the 1988 Calgary Olympic Disabled Committee.
You leave behind your sons who loved you with so much compassion, Nigel (Angie) and Stephen (Deedra) and their families; grandsons, Sean (Kamilah) and Mark (Elesa); granddaughters, Christine (Joey) and Shannon (Jake); great-grandchildren, Dominic and Hailey; and sister Beryl who was a constant shadow of deep love and togetherness from birth. You will also be missed by Larraine, who blessed you with your children; Katie, a friend who shared so much love; and many other friends who admired your tenacity in overcoming so many obstacles. You now join your parents in the spirit world who have now welcomed you into their arms.
Thank you for so many precious memories and for sharing your life with us. You will remain in our hearts forever. God Bless.
No service will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. We give our hearts to Nurse Hollie, and the staff of Unit 73 of the Rockyview Hospital whose attentive care and personality meant so much.
