Lyla Edith May Woolsey

It is with great sadness that the family of Mrs. Lyla Edith May Woolsey, 74, of Vernon, BC, wishes to announce her passing. Lyla died peacefully on February 26,, 2010. Lyla was a long time resident of Vernon, BC where she worked for many years as a caregiver at the Polson Extended Care Ward of the Jubilee Hospital. Lyla will be remembered as a caring wife, a loving mother and a committed and trusted friend.

Lyla was born in Ernfold, Saskatchewan on April 13, 1935 the only daughter of Archie and Lillian Adamson. She is survived by her brother Trevor Adamson of Edmonton Alberta. Lyla married Donald Keith Woolsey May 17, 1962, in Swift Current, Sask. where they settled and raised their 4 children; Rod Whiting, Val Woolsey, Tal Woolsey and Theresa Schmid. In 1981 Don and Lyla moved to Vernon BC where they have lived to the present day.

Lyla is survived by her husband Don and all four of her children. She is also survived by 7 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. Lyla will be truly missed by all her friends and family as she brought laughter and love to all occasions. We know that Lyla would have enjoyed watching Team Canada win the Gold medal in Hockey with her friends and family in the comfort of her home but we know she enjoyed the game just as much with old friends and family in her new home. May Gods Grace and Love continue to touch her soul as she rejoices free from pain in Heaven.
