It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our mother, grandmother and friend. Fredie was born in Vernon BC and graduated nursing from Royal Columbian Hospital (New Westminster, BC) in 1947. She nursed in G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital (Quesnel, BC) from 1951 to 1969, in Resthaven Hospital (Sidney, BC) from 1971 to 1978 and Saanich Peninsula Hospital from 1978 to 1985. Predeceased by her first husband James Roland Haggart and second husband Gilbert Elias Olsen, she will be missed by her sister Barbra Ried (Port Moody, BC), son Jay (Christina) Haggart, (Parksville, BC) step son Orrin Olsen, (Sidney, BC) step daughter Irene (ken) Bechelli (Kamloops, BC), step brothers Carl (Flora) Wylie (Vernon, BC), Doug (Shirley) Wylie (Coquitlam, BC) step sisters Marion Allen (White Rock, BC), Doris (Don) Weatherill (Vernon, BC) and grandchildren Kari (Dave) Marcinkow (Calgary, AB), Steven (Trina) Bechelli (Kamloops, BC) and David Haggart (Parksville, BC). A Memorial Service for family and friend was held at St. Pauls United Church, 2410 Malaview Sidney, BC on Thursday May 26th at 11:00am. Respecting Moms wishes in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice in her memory.
