Brenda Louise Van Peteghem

March 30, 1951 – January 16, 2012

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Brenda Van Peteghem on Monday, January 16, 2012. She passed away at home after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Brenda will be well remembered as a smart, tough, and loving wife, mother, daughter and friend. She is survived by: her husband, Bruce: son, Clark; daughter, Darcie; and mother, Marion; among other important extended family and friends. Her four-legged family members, Onyx and Digger, will also miss her terribly.

Her family would like to extend sincerest thanks to the staff at the Vernon Cancer Clinic for years of great care, as well as to the Lake City Casino staff and management for unwavering support through years of medical treatment.

A celebration of life will take place in March 2012, with details still to be determined.

Arrangements have been entrusted to:
