Florence O TAYLER

TAYLER Florence O. (nee Docking) ‘Aunt Flo’ died unexpectedly at the Chemainus Health Care Centre on July 7, 2004. She and her husband had moved to the Saltair community in 1978 after retirement in Edmonton, and she continued to live in their house until recently. Florence was born in Swan Lake, Manitoba on August 18, 1916, but grew up in Vanderhoof where her parents, Jim and Agnes Docking, were pioneer farmers. She was predeceased by her husband Norman in 1994, and both of her sisters Jean Clark, and Ruth (Roberts) Steele. She is survived by her extended family: a daughter, Muriel Doris, of Esquimalt, a nephew, Colin Roberts and niece Heather Gardam, of Salt Spring Island, and nieces Iris Balcombe of Fraser Lake, and Robyn Evans of Brentwood Bay, as well as all their spouses, children, and grandchildren. She will be missed also by many friends – neighbours and caregivers – who admired her for her grace and grit. At a later time, interment will be in the family memorial plot in the Vanderhoof Cemetary. Arrangements entrusted to Telford’s Mid-Island Memorial Services. 975-48-c9516
