Her family would like to extend a special thank you to the caring staff at the Village by the Station and others who helped with her care over the past few years. A Memorial Service will be held at the Naramata Community Church (3rd and Robinson) on Saturday October 27, at 2pm. Tea will be served following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. would be gratefully accepted. Condolences may be shared by visiting
