September 24, 1926 – December 14, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and Nonnie, Inez McKinley.

Inez was predeceased by husbands Andre Savard in 1978 and Andrew McKinley in 2010 and grandson Shawn Savard in 1988. She leaves behind to mourn her passing, daughter Diane Savard; sons David Savard (Shirley) and Dexter Savard (Raeanne); grandchildren Tiffanie Hellyer (Robert), Tracy Head and Andre Savard (Michael); great-grandchildren Melissa, Sydney and Jillian; sisters Lucille and Florence; brother Bud; stepchildren Reg McKinley (Kim), Dianne McKinley and Andrew McKinley as well as many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Lisinski and Roxanne – your care and compassion will always be remembered; the pharmacy staff at the Rexall Drug Store in Ladysmith, and the staff of We Care and Cowichan Home Support – the care and support you provided to us all was exceptional and much appreciated.

A celebration of life will be held at the Eagle’s Hall in Ladysmith on Wednesday, December 21 at 1:00 p.m. In Lieu of flowers, the family request a donation to either the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Condolences may be offered at
