Nellie E.W. Albert our loving, wonderful, generous wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend gently passed from her earthly family on January 21, 2010. Nellie and her life long love, Joe, spent 58 happy years together. Nellie and Joe raised two daughters, Shanda (John Naylor) and Sharon (Bill Thomson). They were blessed with five grandchildren, John (Erin) Thomson, Angela (Adam) Hammerlindl, Alex Thomson, Matthew Naylor and Nicholas Naylor. Nellie was born and raised in Pine Falls, Manitoba on June 27, 1931 to Mary Jane and John Souka. She and Joe met and married while working for the Hudson Bay Company. Nellie created homes for her family during their numerous moves across Western Canada. Mom was a very strong, spiritual person. Her family was her focus. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, knitting, fishing and staying up late watching the Price is Right. Sleeping in, coffee, and going for drives and lunch with Joe were small pleasures she treasured. Joe and Nellie retired in Kelowna and for the past year mom was lovingly cared for by the amazing and dedicated staff at Sutherland Hills. Donations in Lieu of flowers for Nellie E.W. Albert may be made to the person’s charity of choice.
