She was predeceased by her husbands, Don Bateman and John Howell. She loved her 13 grandchildren, numerous great grandchildren, nieces and nephews with deep enthusiasm. She cherished her many relatives and friends in Nanaimo, Chemainus, Saltspring Island, and Alberta.
She was highly energetic and showed immense determination and perseverance in the face of adversity. We were blessed and comforted by her warmth, wisdom, strength, encouragement, and unwaveringly caring spirit.
