AITKEN, Florence (nee Hillier) January 1, 1930 - December 16, 2012 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother Florence on December 16, 2012. She will be dearly missed by her daughters Sharon Nantes (Phillip) Chemainus, Marilyn Davidson (Frank) Duncan, Susan Dillabaugh (Donald) Victoria. Proud grandmother to Pamela Wiersma (John) Victoria, David Nantes (Pauline) Victoria, Michael Davidson, Duncan, great-grandchildren Jessica Weirsma, Emily Wiersma, Erin Wiersma, Kaleb Nantes all from Victoria, sister Ethel Logan (Wilfred), Halifax. Predeceased by husband Douglas Aitken and sister, Amelia Shynkaryk, Anita Hillier and brothers Eric Hillier and Walter Hillier. Florence was a lifetime member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and participated in catering special events for the Auxiliary. In the early 1960's she was chosen Mother of the year for the March of Dimes. In the late 1960's she spent her time looking after other children and fostered children. She enjoyed preserving vegetables and fruits every year as her family grew up and in the later years she did housekeeping for several homes. Her hobbies were hosting dinner parties, camping and curling. She very much enjoyed watching and attending curling (Dave's events), basketball, football and hockey. Her family was the light of her life and she spent many happy times with us all. A private service for the family will be held later in the New Year. In lieu of flowers, anyone wishing, may make donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Condolences may be made on line at www.dignitymemorial.com "> www.dignitymemorial.com
