Irene Joyce Duffield
October 10th, 1917 – October 16th, 2007
Passed away peacefully
October 16 at Heron Grove.
She will be lovingly remembered by her son Lyle (Alta), daughter Diane and grandson Arden (Vickie). She was predeceased by her husband of 59 years, Elgin, earlier this year.
Mum was born in Elstow Saskatchewan, the second of three children. In the early 1930s mum and her family moved to a farm outside Govan Saskatchewan and it was here she would meet a young redhead who would become her husband. Mum and Dad married in 1947 and thus began a 27 year travel odyssey across Canada as Dad served in the Armed Forces. Mum focused on home and family during all these moves making sure everybody was healthy and happy. After Dad’s retirement they settled in Calgary for 10 years then moved to Vernon B.C. in 1982. Mum’s years here were filled with friends and family, trips back to the prairies, playing crib, gardening and needlework
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Staff of Cottage 5 for the loving care and consideration they showed our mum. It gave our family great comfort knowing she was so well looked after.
Honoring Mum’s wishes, there will be no funeral service.
Always in our hearts
