With great sadness, we regret announcing to you the passing of our mom, Nancy Toft. She passed away peacefully in her sleep on April 25 from a long battle with cancer.
After speaking with many people, we quickly realized how much mom was loved by everyone. Many people have said that her contagious laugh will be the most memorable while others have said her caring heart.
Nancy was predeceased by her parents, Roy and Minetta, husband Clifford, sisters Lorna and Carol, brother Allan. She leaves behind to mourn; her children Steven and Michelle, sisters Brenda (Roy), Gail (Parker) and Vicky. Nancy will also be mourned by all of her nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, the extended family including Laurie (Gord) & family, the Scherba’s, Dodie L and close friends Tammy B and the Kreeger’s.
“Rest in Peace, Mom. You are our hero. We love you so very much. Miss you always and forever. Now, go fly high in the sky with dad in amongst the white butterflies he always talked about.”
We would like to thank Dr. Robyn McEwen, Dr. Gert Jacobs, Dr. William Tinmouth of Courtenay, Dr. Andrew Attwell of Victoria and the many caring North Island Hospital staff.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.
A celebration of Nancy’s life will be held at a later date.
