Our beloved mom, peacefully left this world, surrounded by loving family.

Predeceased by her husband Graham and son Graham Jr. Also her parents, Hazel and Frank Crothers, and her grandson Trevor Stuart.

Survived by daughters Dawn Smiley (Len), Jo-Anne Stuart (Neil) and Pat Hooper (Ray), son Murray Hooper (Marta) and daughter-in-law Carol Hooper, sister Marlene Wachholz. Many grandchildren, great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild.

Mom was born in Granum, AB and raised in Battleford, SK. As a young wife, she moved to the Island with her husband and spent most of her life here.

She worked at both Brentwood College and Strathcona Lodge Schools. She was also a long time member of TOPS BC#2933 and made many close friends through that organization.

Mom loved to travel and did many trips. She especially enjoyed road trips!

She was loved by everyone and her door was always open to young and old!

The family would like to thank the caring staff at Cairnsmore Extended Care, and her now retired doctor, Dr. Dawn Galbraith, for the many years of care.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Mom’s former home on July 29, 2017 from 2 – 4 pm at 1454 Hutchinson Rd. in Cobble Hill.
