William Woodruff

Lorraine was survived by William, who passed away 24 days later. Both are survived by their daughters Deanna (Scotty), Sharon (Sean) and Janice (Jayson); granddaughter Loreen; grandsons William and Jakeb; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Lorraine was also survived by her sister Min, and William by his sister Linda-Jane and brother Jimmy.

Throughout the 50 plus years they were in the Valley, Mom worked for BC Hydro and Herb Doman, then later at the Legion and Elks Club. Woody stayed with family business, E&M Machine Works, now Promac Manufacturing. Rumour has it he may have been sold along with the company.

Both Mom and Dad were involved in the local sports community, where Dad was inducted into the North Cowichan Sports Wall of Fame in 2013 on behalf of the Chemainus Blues, as well as a member of the CVGC for many years. Mom was always at the rink, either with Dad and his hockey or with us three girls while we figure skated.

Mom was involved with the Ladies Auxiliary to the RCL, Br. 53, as well as the Cowichan Pipe Band in their early years. Mom fought a very hard battle with cancer right to the end and dad had found out only two months before his passing that he had cancer as well.

At both their requests there will not be a service. Many thanks to Jack Cotterill, Butch and Elaine

– Mom and Dad’s rock through this. To Debi, Dianna and Kari for visiting with Mom; Uncle Pat and Tommy Gamble for their visits and to Gen for always being there for both of them.

You were both taken away from us girls too soon, our lives will never be the same without you both in it.

We Love You Forever and Always.
