Dawn Elizabeth Wickenden

It is with great, great sadness that we are letting Dawn’s Vancouver Island friends know that she died on Saturday, January 7th after a very long struggle with cancer. Dawn lived her last days in the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and we want to thank Dr. Lora Morrice, Leanne Drumheller, Dr. Norgrove, and all of the Palliative Care Unit staff and volunteers for their care. We thank, Dr. Lim, Helen Wong, Dr. MacPherson, Dr. Wai, and staff at the Vancouver Island Cancer Centre. Many thanks also to the home care support from the Vancouver Island Health Authority and Beacon Community Services. Special thanks go to friends Betsy & Carlo; Isabelle, Sharon and the Wednesday Night Knitting Group; Cousins Evelyn, Maureen, Katherine & Irene; and to Rodger and Paula. A celebration of Dawn’s life will be held in Canmore, Alberta on May 6, 2012. A tribute to Dawn is in the Calgary Herald (Obituaries) online edition at http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/calgaryherald/ Thank you all again, from Dawn’s sisters, Shelley and Beverley.
