(Tawny) Vera Maxine FORT

October 11, 1933 – May 5, 2017

Tawny passed away peacefully in her sleep. She leaves two daughters; Kirsten Harris (Michael) and Karen Miers (Brent Murray), two grand- children; Tracey Tillapaugh (Jeff) and MacKenzie Cross, and two great-grandchildren; Owen and Harlow Tillapaugh. She was predeceased by no less than three husbands; Ray Allen, Lorne Griffiths, and Phil Fort. Way to go Mom! She was the administrative assistant at Harbour Park and Woodgrove Mall for many years and was well liked by all who knew her. Always quick witted, she brought smiles to many with her positive outlook on life. She was a very accomplished knitter and gardener. Tawny liked a good drink of whiskey and loved her dog Suki. She was proud of her girls and loved them to bits. She will be missed, but will also be welcomed with open arms wherever it is that she’s gone to. Please join us for a Celebration of Life at 10 Buttertubs Drive, Nanaimo, BC on Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm.
