It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Micheline Sobon on April 25, 2013. Micheline was born in Meux, France, on September 4, 1931. She was predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Joseph, in 2008. She is survived by their children: Richard (Jacquie), Anita (Doug), Christian (Elinor) and grandson Kyle. Micheline is also survived by numerous relatives in Canada, France and Poland.
Micheline and Joe immigrated to Canada from France in 1954 and finally settled in Vernon in 1965, later moving to Lavington where they resided for 37 years. Mom worked for many years at various fruit packing houses where she made many life long friends. She loved working in her vegetable garden and generously shared her abundant crop and gardening tips with family and friends.
The family wishes to thank her many wonderful friends who were so supportive and the nurses at VJH that cared for her.
