October 15, 1943

October 13, 2013

On the morning of October 13, our Judy passed away gently held in the arms of her children. She was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario to Stan and Joy Symington. Judy was the beloved mother of Emelia (Christie) and Graham; brand new grandmother of Arthur; dear sister of Joanne; and loving aunt of Katie.

Judy was a vibrant contributing member to many community circles including: Mackenzie Camp, The Cancer Relaxation Circle, Buoyant Buddies, The Wolfettes, and Zion United Church. For over 40 years she was a compassionate nurse specializing in home and palliative care.

Her family would like to thank the many friends who helped cook, walk dogs, visited, and supported all of us in endless ways. All her years of giving to the community was gratefully returned in her time of need.

Although we deeply miss her, we know she is at peace. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Judy’s name to either the Hospice Society (3506 27 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4) or Mackenzie Camp (PO Box 133, Armstrong, BC V0E 1B0).

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, October 18, 2013 at Zion United Church (2315 Pleasant Valley Road, Armstrong). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
