Irene Ruth Lewis
May 5, 1920 – March 26, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Irene Ruth Lewis, March 26, 2011 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
Irene is survived by her 5 children, Margaret of Vancouver, Evan of New Zealand, Morgan of England, Trevor of Nanaimo and Miriam of Enderby. Together with their wives, husbands, children, grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and close
friends, she will be remembered for all of our lives. She was an ardent gardener and a wonderful cook/baker. She was fiercely independent and managed herself and home until the end, at 90 years of age. Her request was to be buried with no funeral service. So April 1, 2011 she was interred at The Vernon Spallumcheen Cemetery surrounded by family and friends.
