October 12, 1921 – August 25, 2010
Verna passed away peacefully in her 89th year. She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd in 2002.
She is survived by her daughter Jacqui (Don) Johnston of Qualicum Beach, her son Gerry (Bev) Shea of Magna Bay, BC, three grandchildren; Cameron (Iveta) Johnston of Nanaimo, Erin (Dean) Andersen of Calgary, Emma Shea of Vancouver and two great-grandchildren; Aidan Johnston and Marcus Andersen.
Verna moved to Qualicum from Edmonton to be closer to her daughter. She was one of the first residents at The Gardens in Qualicum where she was in independent living until January 2010. At that time she was moved on to the 3rd floor of The Gardens, where she received exceptional care from the staff.
Her family was the most important thing in her life and we will really miss her. She was a veteran of WWII. She will be returned to Edmonton where she will be buried next to her husband Lloyd. A celebration of her life will be held at that time. We love you mom.
