Nancy Holmes Mason

After 95 years Nancy has passed on. She is survived by two children, Susanne (Warren Henry) and Roy (Lexie) Mason and three grandchildren, Jodi Mason, Jason (Niki) Henry and Lee (Eva) Henry and one nephew David (Muriel) Reid. Her husband Irving passed away in May 1995.
Nancy was born in Salisbury, North Carolina, U.S. and after the early death of her mother, Nancy travelled from N.C. to New Westminster, B.C. to continue her education and live with her sister Saree Reid and her family. After graduation, she met and married Irving Mason who was employed by the C.P.R. They continued their life together with their two children in many remote B.C. communities finally settling in Vernon in 1956.
Nancy was known as fun loving, quick witted and a loyal mother, wife and grandmother.
Noric House has been Nancy’s home for 11 years where she has received wonderful care which has been greatly appreciated by her family.
There will be a family gathering at a future date to celebrate Nancy’s life. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Alzheimer Association, c/o People Place, Rm. #102, 3402 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T lS1
We love you Mom!
