It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Evie (born June 3, 1930 in Vernon, BC) on September 23, 2015 and Dick (born September 23, 1922 in Lancaster, England) on February 2, 2015 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. They were together for 50 years living in Vancouver and Campbell River prior to moving to Vernon in 1993. Both worked in the hospitality industry as well as Evie at B.C. Tel and Dick at Firestone Tire. Dick was a WWII navy veteran and a recipient of several medals including two from the Russian Embassy. They were known for their outgoing personalities. Their kindness, love, generosity and hospitality created life long bonds with family and friends. Winters in California and summers trailering to Shuswap Lake, Campbell River and Saskatchewan family reunions held special memories for them and us all. Evie was predeceased by loving parents Ellodie and Cecil Rivett. Survived by sisters Joan (Keith) Brewis, Shirley Larsson, and Eric Larsson. Nieces Bev Brewis, Karin (Cal) Siemens, Kris (Peter Rupar) Larsson, birth daughter Bonnie Parker. Nephews Bob (Claudia) Brewis, Jeff (Val) Brewis and many grand-nieces, nephews and Saskatchewan relatives. Dick is survived by daughters Lynn (John) Rogers, Patti (Bob) White, Sandra (Jack) Piggot, Teresa (Greg) Confortin, grand and great grandchildren. Thank you to the staff at VJH and Carrington Home for their care. Special thanks to Debbie Mieres for kindness and caring to them in their last few years.
– Missed by all and forever in our hearts.
A memorial to be announced at a later date. If desired, donations to Diabetes or Cancer Agencies would be appreciated.
