October 28th, 1925 to April 22nd, 2013
Embraced by the love of her family, our dear Mum passed away peacefully on April 22nd, 2013. Predeceased by her beloved husband Alec, her cherished son Bruce, and her dear grandchildren Brooke and Kyle. Survived by her children, Jan (Ken), Robin (David), Scott (Margot), and Neil (Vera), her grandchildren Bruce (Shelly), Erin (Geoff), Lee (Jocelyn), Blake (Katherine), Cole, Alexandra (Rob), Evan, Dhana, and her great-grandchildren Jacob and Justin, Aureilia and Abigail, and Emily and Owen.
Married in 1943, Louise and Alec began raising their family in Alberta before coming to North Vancouver in 1951. After a brief return to Calgary, they settled in West Vancouver, where Louise lived from 1963 to 2002.
From 2002 until her passing, Louise divided her time between Victoria and North Vancouver. While in Victoria, Louise volunteered her services at the James Bay Beacon newspaper, Abbey Field House and the James Bay Community Project and was an active book club participant.
The family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff of the North Shore Hospice. We will always remember and appreciate everything that was done for our mother and us.
As requested, there will be no services at this time, but a gathering of family and close friends is planned for the early summer.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the North Shore Hospice in memory of Louise are welcomed.
