JUDITH MOHR

Judith Anita Mohr

(nee) Richards

June 19th, 1951 ~ February 20th 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Judith (Judy) Anita Mohr on February 20th, 2013 at the age of 61 years.

Judy was born into a unique family. She came into this world at The Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops BC as a triplet. Judy and her two sisters were the first surviving triplets to be born in this hospital. Judith, Katherine and Lynda were identical triplets at birth, and wore bracelets lest they be mixed up. This unique family was further enhanced with the birth of three more children including a set of twins.

Judy moved to the Vernon Area in her late teens and spent her entire life there. She worked for many years with Bertelson Plumbing and as a receptionist at Steiner and Company as a legal assistant. She was actively involved in the community and freely gave of herself to many organizations throughout Vernon and the Okanagan Valley. She was also a proud member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority of Vernon and will be missed by her many sisters there. Judy had many accomplishments to be proud of but her pride and joy was starting her own business, Angels To The Rescue. This was tailor made for Judy because it was all about helping others, in this case, seniors who were moving from their homes to Assisted Care Facilities. Judy was an avid and accomplished gardener. Those of us close to Judy used to joke about our annual tour of her yard as she proudly showed off her creations each year.

It was in Vernon BC, that Judy met and married her soul mate, Robert Mohr. They and their combined families had over 30 wonderful years together.

Judy was predeceased by her loving husband, Bob, on October 2012, her parents John and Patricia Richards and her sister Diane Mary.

The memory of Judy will be forever cherished and remembered by her children, Michael (Nicole), Donald, Gordon (Chris), Lonnie (Brian), Dan (Pete) and Jim. She is further survived by her triplet sisters, Katherine and Lynda and her twin brother and sister, Chris and Noreen. To carry on her legacy, Judy is also survived by her many grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Judy will be especially missed by her close companion and friend of her mother, Ruth Whitson who Judy spent many hours with.

Funeral Arrangements for Judy are in care of Pleasant Valley Funeral Services. In Lieu of Flowers, the family request that if you wish to honour Judy’s memory please make a donation to a charity that is dear to your heart.

A celebration of life and informal tea will be held in Judy’s honour on Saturday March 2, 2013 from 2-4 pm at the Oyama Community Hall, 15710 Oyama Road.

Time for me to go now, I have not the time to say goodbye

Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
