It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother Vera Robinson. Vera passed away peacefully July 2, 2012.
She was born in Glasgow, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1924. She grew up in Rossland and upon her marriage to her beloved husband Don moved to Beaver Falls.
Vera was generous with her love and kind words. She was a model of quiet strength and constantly nurtured her family and her relationships. She enjoyed doing crafts, needle work and crocheting. Vera treasured her family and friends above all else and enjoyed a good laugh over a game of cards and a glass of wine.
She was predeceased by her husband Don. She will be deeply missed by her four children Barbara, Norma, Jim (Karen), and Dennis (Lynn), her grandchildren Matthew, Michelle, Chris, Craig, Tyler, Andrea and Alicia, and her great-granddaughter Kennadie.
The family would like to thank the staff of Rosewood Village for their care shown toward Vera during the last years of her life.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 2012 Third Ave, Trail, BC on Saturday, July 7 2012 at 10:30am with Father Matthieu Gombo Yange OfmCap, Celebrant. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
As an expression of sympathy, donations in Vera’s name may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC at 300-828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, B.C.V5Z 1E2 or online at www.alzheimerbc.org.
