Mom so enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren and spent many enjoyable hours playing with them on the floor.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation for the loving and compassionate care given to Mom by Dr. Wiedrick, Dr. Schumacher, the staff of Kamloops Seniors Village and Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home.
We invite you to join us in celebrating Mom’s life on Saturday December 1, 2012 at 2 pm at Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops B.C.

And as the years come and go,
We’ll think about you forever,
Because we love you so.
