It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Adele Smith (nee Bru).
After a courageous battle with cancer Adele passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 10th, 2007 with her loving family by her side.
Born 1956 in North Battleford, Sk, she was residing at the Polson Extended Care Unit where she was exceptionally well cared for by the staff and Dr. Mori.
Adele will be sadly missed by her family, husband David of Vancouver, mother Reine of Vernon, brothers Hubert of Saskatchewan and Rick of Vernon, sisters Lillian, Paula, Bea of Vernon, and Janet of Winfield. She was predeceased by her father Paul and brother Lloyd.
Adele will always be remembered for her free spirit and her sense of humor, both of which were unfailing till the end.
A Celebration of Life was held at the Bethel Funeral Chapel in Vernon on Thursday, March 15. Interment of Adele’s cremated remains will follow in the family plot in Jackfish, Sk. Those who wish to do so may make a donation in Adele’s memory to the Vernon Hospital Foundation.
“As I was falling,
An angel touched my face,
And brought me to this loving place.”
