We mourn a dear, gentle soul with an amazing spirit who battled Alzheimer’s but could not overcome complications related to the disease; she peacefully left this world early Saturday morning. She is survived by her husband Dwayne of 47 years, her children Allan (Kerrie), Michele (Dale), Deborah, Denise (Craig), grandchildren Tyler, Ryan, Genesis, Alex, Nicole, Shae, Natalie, and great-grandchildren Zack, Jordan, Rhys, and Michaela.
Our family wishes to thank the physicians, nurses and staff at Saanich Peninsula Hospital, Dr. Malone, the super team at Peninsula Community Health Services, and the caregivers from Beacon Community Services. Special thanks go to Dr. Geoffrey Luckhurst who has been our family physician – and friend – for 25 years.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 13, at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Church in Sidney at 2410 Malaview Ave with Rev. Suzanna Bates presiding.
