STELLA NEWINGTON

BALCOMBE

(nee PEARSON)

Stella passed away peacefully in the loving

care of the staff at Noric House and in the loving presence of her family on Sunday, December 17th, 2006 at the age of 95 years. Stella’s parents immigrated to Canada from England in 1910 and Stella was born in Swift Current on June 9th, 1911. The family moved to Penticton in the early 1920s and, in the late 1920s, to Vernon where she lived happily ever after. Stella’s life is a testament to the quality of life we are privileged to enjoy in Canada. She was just a little person in a little town but she had a long and good life. Cremation preceded the Funeral Service which will be held at Trinity United Church on Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007 at 2:00 P.M. with Mrs. Sheila Odney officiating. A Reception will follow in the Church Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations in Stella’s memory may be made to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, (2101-32nd Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 9Z9), in trust for Noric House where Stella was blessed with exceptional and loving care for the past five years. Funeral arrangements have been made with BETHEL FUNERAL CHAPEL LTD., 5605-27th Street,
