Mona Pushor passed away peacefully on April 17, 2010 with family at her side. Mona was predeceased by her son Wayne Ulry in 1970. She will be lovingly missed and always remembered by her sons Derrald Ulry (Gwen), Trevor Ulry (Faye) and Archie Ulry (Cheryl) and “son” Vernon Hagerty (Lori); her husband, Jim Pushor; Jim’s family; her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Mona loved to travel and she and Jim had many great traveling years together in their infamous camper/van. She was an avid photographer who made Jim stop many times to get just the right shot of a nature scene, a bird or a wild animal. The large number of photo albums she kept and catalogued attest to her love of photography. She also was a member of the Vernon Monday Night Toastmasters Club, and received various achievement awards for her public speaking skills. Mona was also a member of Knox Presbyterian Church in Vernon, Royal Canadian Legion and the OAPC, both of Lumby, BC.
Mona lived in Alberta until 1983. She had lived and farmed in the Olds area for many years, during which time she was also employed by the local creamery, the auction mart and did bookkeeping for Gordie’s Glass. She worked for Parks Canada in Jasper National Park prior to moving to BC and was married to James Everett Pushor. She had moved many times in her life. She and Jim lived on Pender Island, in Logan Lake, in Lumby, in Vernon, and most recently, Mona had moved to live in a retirement residence in Osoyoos.
There will be a celebration of life service at Knox Presbyterian Church, 3702-32 Avenue, Vernon, BC on Friday, April 23, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev. Dr. E. Millin officiating. A small reception will follow at the church.
In lieu of flowers, Mona had requested that a memorial donation be made to the Okanagan Gleaners of Oliver, BC, RR 31, Site 70, Comp. 22, Oliver, BC V0H 1T0.
