Mom was predeceased by her parents Jack (1993) and Elsie Rose (1992), her husband Johnny (1982) and her son Derrick (1993).
Mom was born December 8, 1930 in Newdale Manitoba the eldest of four children. She married John Hora June 16, 1949 in Winnipeg Manitoba and they moved to Fort St. John, BC in September of 1956. They lived there until moving to Victoria in 1970 and Mom moved to Ladysmith in 2003.
She was very active in the Seniors Centre and was the founder of the Ladysmith Better Breathers. Always generous of heart and gracious of spirit she passed away as she lived her life. With dignity.
She was loved more than words can say and her passing is a great loss to all who knew and loved her.
We wish to express our appreciation to all the home support workers who so tenderly helped take care of her, to Eleanor from Hospice and an extra special thank-you to all the pharmacists at Pharmasave.
