1941 to 2023
On September 14th, our treasured Mom and Grandma passed away peacefully at the age of 81 and has been reunited with her beloved husband David forever. She was predeceased by her parents Hyacinth & Thomas, sisters Margaret, Mary and Audrey, brothers Barry and Gordon, as well as special friends and pets she loved throughout her life.
She will be forever missed and never forgotten by daughters Kathleen and son-in-law Sam from Powell River, Susan and son-in-law Robert from Edmonton, along with granddaughters Bailey (Jace), Amanda & Taylor, and great granddaughter Rowyn. She will be remembered by brothers Mitch and Monty (Lori) from Ontario, sister Ruth from British Columbia along with many nieces, nephews and friends.
Velma was a generous and caring soul who was quick to smile and share a kind word with others. She loved her family unconditionally and her genuine happiness during our times together could always be felt. We were blessed to have her in our life.
A funeral mass will be held Friday, September 22 at 1 PM at Holy Family Catholic Church in St. Albert (75 Poirier Ave.) with a private interment to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories.
