Thelma Irene Batie

October 6,1919 – February 1, 2015

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved “Nini” on Sunday February 1, 2015 at The Lodge on 4th.

Predeceased in 1995 by her husband, Tom “Tuber” Batie, she is survived by her much loved and loving son, Mike (Ann), cherished grandchildren: Jill and Steven (Jean), adoring niece, Lynne McNeil and many other nieces, nephews and cousins.

A lifelong Ladysmith resident, “Nini”s” greatest loves were swimming, preferably at Transfer Beach, Garth’s and Jenny’s, Sproat and Cowichan Lakes, watching golf and tennis on TV (Roger Federer has lost his biggest fan, bar none!), music, and her family. A visit to her home would often conclude with a gift of a loaf of her famous Finn Biscuit.

Our heartfelt thanks to the staff at NRGH and LaRosa Gardens and especially to Dr. Fergus Kennedy for his exceptional care and friendship over the years!

A Memorial Tea will be held at the Ladysmith Legion hall

on Saturday, February 14, 2015 from 1 to 4 p.m.

In lieu of flowers,

donations to the Ladysmith Hospital Auxiliary or

The Ladysmith Royal Canadian Legion

would be truly appreciated.
