BRADEN, Ferne Christena
“Gramma Ferne”
Ferne Braden of Kamloops passed away on October 25, 2010 at 96 years of age. She was survived by her children, Sharon Campbell of Kamloops, BC and Jack (Darlynn) Braden of Gibsons, BC, her grandchildren, Shannon (Brent) Rudolfsen of Lacombe, AB, Heather (Paul) Riegert, Laurel Scott and Sean (Lianne) Campbell all of Kamloops, her great-grandchildren Christie, Kyle, Zachary, Riley and Andrew Braden, Tyana and Logan Rudolfsen, Elizabeth and Emily Riegert, Caleb Campbell and gr. great-granddaughter Emily Shaw and granddaughters in- law Michelle Braden and Jackie Braden and numerous relatives and friends.
Ferne was predeceased by her husband Vance Braden in 1987 as well as her sister, Gladys Kerr, brother, Bill Bossence, son in-law, Doug Campbell and daughter in-law, Sandy Braden.
Ferne was born in Harrington West, ON to Gladwin and Emma Bossence. The family moved to Mortlach, SK in 1918. At 16 Ferne left school to provide care to family members, continuing this role throughout her lifetime. In 1937 she married Vance Braden, whom she had known for most of her life in Mortlach. In 1953 Ferne, Vance and their two children, Sharon and Jack, moved to Edmonton, AB. With their children grown and Vance retired, the couple began managing apartments in Edmonton and later Penticton, BC. Ferne moved to Kamloops in 1987, after her husband passed away, in order to be near her daughter and family. In 1996 she became roommates with her granddaughter Laurel and her dog, Jazz who quickly became Ferne’s best friend and constant companion.
Ferne was a woman of strong faith and abiding love for her family, who took great joy in being Gramma to everyone she met. Ferne spelled hospitality “FOOD”. She loved to bake, especially cookies, and had talents for quilting and knitting, with her slippers always in great demand. She loved and was often called on to care for her grand-dogs. She was a country music fan, even travelling to Nashville to attend Fanfest and was a faithful member of the Crystal Cathedral’s Sparrow Club. She also liked to play the slots, making annual birthday outings to the local casinos with her grandkids. Ferne was an avid Canadian Football fan, cheering on the BC Lions (except when they were playing the Riders) and betting on the games with her daughter. A high point came when she met and had her picture taken with Geroy Simon and the Grey Cup in 2007.
Her family was everything to her and included all those who knew and loved Gramma Ferne.
A Celebration of Ferne’s life will take place at 1:30pm on Sunday, October 31, 2010 at the Calvary Community Church (Fireside Room).
Speacial Thanks to Dr Howie, Diane Freathy, Lois Knauff, paramedics Shaun and Mike and the amazing staff and volunteers at Marjorie Willoby Snowden House.

Park, Susan

SUSAN PARK
February 1, 1947 – October 25, 2010

It is with extreme sadness that the family of Susan Park announces her passing. Susan is survived by her children Leslie Ennis-Smale (Red Deer), David Park (Calgary), her grandchildren Keenan (Kaitlin), Kimberly and Kelsie, her mother Jean Park and her sister Sheila Park (Kamloops). Susan was predeceased by her father Frank Park (Williams Lake).
Susan was born in Colne, Lancashire, England. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1952. She lived in many communities across Canada and also in France as an “Air Force Brat”. She spent most of her adult and working life as an LPN and Social Worker in Prince George, before moving to Clearwater and then retiring in Chase, BC.
Susan had a strong commitment to Social Justice. She was community activist (no task to large). She volunteered with many organizations in her communities to enhance life for others. Two volunteer tasks that she was extremely proud of were: working with the Interior University Society to found the University of Northern British Columbia and being an elected Hospital Board Member at Prince George Regional Hospital. In “retirement” in Chase, Susan volunteered in many organizations, but her favourites were the Chase Museum’s and Sun Valley’s Gardens. Gardening was a joy for her.
Susan had a zest for life and worked hard at any task or activity that she took on. She enjoyed traveling, camping, kayaking, biking, antiquing, Scottish dancing, Family History, reading and crafting.
Susan’s greatest pleasure however came from being a grandmother and being involved in her grandchildren’s lives and activities. Susan will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Susan’s family thank the staff and volunteers at the Chase Clinic, Salmon Arm Cancer Clinic, RIH Cancer Clinic and the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home for the care that they provided Susan with, through her illness.
There will be no service by request. A private family celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Should friends desire, donations to the Cancer Society (designated for research for a cure for T-Cell Lymphoma), 111-450 Lansdowne Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 1Y3.
