Edith O’Driscoll

It is with great sorrow but much love that we say good-bye to Ginger who passed away peacefully after a year-long battle with cancer with her loving daughter Bonnie holding her hand.

Predeceased by her husband Rod O’Driscoll in 1994 and her son Al O’Driscoll in 2002. She will be lovingly remembered by her three children, Don, Kelly and Bonnie, grandchildren and great grandchildren, Bradley, Brian, Cari (Ryder, Olivia), Dezi, Corryn (Nevaeh) and Nikki (Lisa Marie). She will also be deeply missed by her three siblings Doug (Peggy), Nancie (Terry) and Michael (Sylvie), her nieces that she adores Erica and Katelyn (Brian) and many good friends and neighbors. Her little dogs Maggie and Mimi were her companions on her many trips to Arizona. She traveled south on her own for 14 years after Rod’s death, meeting up with friends from all across Canada. Ginger loved to go to the Casino and play cards with her family. She was always busy knitting or crocheting and made hundreds of hats for babies at Duncan and Victoria hospitals. A special thank you to Sandra who has taken over loving her little dogs and to her neighbors Joan and Keith. We had peace of mind knowing you were there.

A celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 18th at 2 p.m. at Mount Brenton Golf Course, 2816 Henry Road, Chemainus, B.C. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
