Charlotte Lois Hardy January 11, 1930 - November 10, 2012 It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many, C. Lois Hardy on November 10, 2012 after a brief battle with cancer.

Lois was born on a farm near Donavon, Saskatchewan, on January 11, 1930 and settled in North Vancouver in 1957 with her husband Jack. They met in Hamilton, Ontario in 1953 while she was training as a dietitian after completing her degree in Home Economics. She worked as a dietitian until giving birth to her son, Jim and daughter, Dana and then dedicated her life to being a full time mom to her children and a partner to Jack in his retirement.

Lois and Jack have been blessed with many great friends and Lois loved entertaining them at home with her excellent cooking skills. She enjoyed curling, skiing, golf, tennis and traveling, and later in life took up painting. In the last 25 years, since Jack's retirement, they spent winters in Arizona, escaping the rains of Vancouver.

Lois is predeceased by her brothers Williard and Gerald and will be lovingly remembered by her husband Jack, son Jim (Deb), daughter Dana (Mike), granddaughters Ellen and Alexa, brother Arnold, sisters in law Joyce and Loretta and numerous other extended family and friends.

There will be a celebration of life in the Jim Graham Lounge at The North Shore Winter Club, 1325 E. Keith Road, North Vancouver on Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 2:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation would be welcomed.
