May 26, 1921 – May 23, 2019
Sadly Billie’s family announces her passing at Eagle Park Care Home where she missed her 98th birthday by three days.
Billie was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver as a child. It was in Vancouver where she met and married Alex Ward. Their logging camp days started in Port Alberni followed by Great Central Lake, Sarita River and Zeballos. Alex and Billie moved to Parksville in 1963. When Alex retired, they travelled to New Brunswick in their truck and camper five times to visit Alex’s many relatives. Alex passed in 2006 and Billie missed him terribly.
Survived by her their four children; Merilyn Baldwin (Don), Maureen Schuler (Ron), Ross Ward (Janice), Marion Ditrich (Vince), 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
The Ward Family are very grateful for the fine care Eagle Park staff provided and thank you to Dr. J. Wagenaar and Dr. P. Bartlett.
No service as per Billie’s request. A small donation to the SPCA or Wildlife Rehab would be welcome.
