Nora lived in the Vernon area for 52 years with her husband Tom. She was born in Comox, BC, and grew up in Campbell River.
Nora’s last home was the Gateby Care Facility where a group of kind and professional women and men kept her safe and comfortable. On March 14, at age 86, after five years at Gateby, she moved on to a brighter realm.
Nora lived with optimism in spite of her interest in world news. She chose kindness first in her dealings with people and enjoyed her many friends. In her later years, Nora indulged in a wee nip of sherry at 4pm and talked politics and philosophy with her husband of 60 years, Tom. Nora loved a nice chat with her friends and neighbours but also had an introspective side coupled with a sharp wit. Yorkshire pud-dings were her signature dish and her prowess with a rib roast was the envy of the family.
We all loved her dearly. Everyone who remem-bers Nora is asked to celebrate her life in their own way, but a raised glass in her memory would be quite suitable.
Thank you to everyone at Gateby for making her stay there comfortable and safe.
