We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on March 21, 2013, of Wilf Treen, at the age of 79 years.

Wilf was very active with the CMHA for many years, and was a gifted and creative painter and sculptor. He was a longtime resident of the Vernon and Lumby areas.

Wilf was predeceased by his parents, Wilfred and Edith, and sisters Phyllis and Muriel.

He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 25 years, Barbara; his children Wes, Penny Anne and Bill and wife Hilary and their children: Ben (Aliza), Emily and Eric, and Wilf’s great-granddaughter, Tegan. He is also survived by brothers Belden and Len (Marlene), sisters Marjorie and Doreen and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members; and Penny Alger, the mother of his children. In lieu of flowers, friends may make donations in memory of Wilf to the CMHA, 3100 – 28 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1W3.

Friends are invited to join the family at a gathering to celebrate Wilf’s life, to be held at CMHA on Saturday, June 15th, at 1:00 p.m. All are welcomed.
