LOIS IRENE NELSON
May 13, 1927-September 20, 2013
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our mother, Lois.
She is survived by her sisters, Doreen Cameron, Joan (Jack) Boardman and her children Sheila (Doug), Brad (Carla) and Jo-Anne (John), grandchildren Erin (Dave), Brian (Tiffany) and Conner (Leea). Great grandchildren Jesse, Evan, Ebony, Haley, Farah and Elijah. Numerous nieces and nephews in Vancouver, extended family in Union Bay and companion Gordon Lundine.
Lois was born in Vancouver and spent her childhood and early adult years there. She moved to Vancouver Island in 1963 and settled in Union Bay. In 1998 she moved to her much loved home in Qualicum Beach.
Lois was an untiring supporter of the community in Qualicum Beach, volunteering for various organizations including The White Cane Club, The Lions, The Legion Ladies Auxiliary and the O.A.P. Club. She was also a member of the Lighthouse Community Association, giving many hours of her time and energy to the running of the Lighthouse Community Hall.
She will be well remembered for her wonderful sense of humour, her love of family, song and theatre and her ability to tell endless jokes and stories! She will also be remembered for her unselfish devotion to friends, neighbours and community.
We love you Mum and will be in our hearts forever.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Lois on
November 9, 2013 2:00pm,
at Lighthouse Community Hall.
Please come and if you wish, share a story about Mum and help us celebrate this wonderful person.
One Heart – So Many Loves.
