Vera Gertrude Smith

It is with great sadness that Vera closed her beautiful brown eyes for the last time on March 9, 2010 in Salmon Arm BC at the age of 75 with two of her children Gordon and Patti by her side. Vera resided in Vernon from 1977 until 2006 when she moved to Salmon Arm to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren.

Vera suffered with a number of medical problems and was still able to keep a smile on her face and make people laugh with her sense of humor.

She leaves behind her partner and best friend of 37 years Bob Fearnley, her children Patti (Glen), Gordon (Shelly), Garth (Sandy), Richard (Ruth), Collen (Larry), Darlene, Patsy, Joe, Billy, and Micheal. Her grandchildren, Samantha, Cameron, Cale, Sydney, Jordan, Alexandra, Shayla, Justin and numerous other grandchildren and her brand new great grand-daughter Jada along with numerous brother and sisters, aunts and uncles, and cousins.

The family would like to thank the nurses and caregivers that supported and cared for Vera at this challenging time. Thanks to Craig, Milly, Sandy, Leslie, Santina, Jennifer, Rob and Mark.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Chrones and Colitus Foundation of Canada; 60 St. Clair Avenue East, Suite 600 Toronto Ontario M4T 1N5.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 2:00 at the Hillside Village Good Samaritan Society South building 2891 – 15 Avenue NE Salmon Arm B.C.

Vera you are not alone

We are always with you.
