Josephine Ann Roddan (née Hirst)

December 1, 1927 – March 11, 2021
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of our loving mom, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Predeceased by her husband, Stuart Roddan, and grandson, Kevin Rushton.
Mom was born to a pioneer family of Parksville and Nanaimo. After growing up in Parksville, she went onto work in Vancouver where she met our dad, Stuart, and became part of the “larger than life” Roddan family.
In 1960, Mom and Dad returned to Parksville to raise my brother and I in a place where we could all appreciate the small town roots. Mom’s career of over 20 years was at the “Overwaitea” (now Save-on-Foods). Along with her love of family and family connections, she had the ability to maintain good friendships and a great sense of humour.
She will be sadly missed by her son, Andrew; daughter Marcia (Gord); grandchildren Nick (Tilly), Thomas (Trina), Spencer, Daryl (Megan), Penny (Mark), Tia, Melissa, and Cory; and many great-grandchildren.
Due to COVID, no service is planned at this time.
