Philippa Richmond "Nancy" Erickson (nee Mudge)

Nancy was born in Cobble Hill to William and Annie Spence Mudge. She is predeceased by her husband Allan Gerald Lynne Erickson and her daughter Glenda Eileen Erickson. She is survived by her son Steve Lawhead and daughters Kathleen Erickson and Colleen Erickson.

Nancy spent over 30 years as the owner of the Buy Sell &Trade newspaper where she developed strong friendships with employees and customers alike.

We would like to thank the staff of the 4th floor at Nanaimo General Hospital and the Community Home Support staff whose dedication and support allowed Nancy to live out her life with dignity and happiness. Without exception, these wonderful professionals treated Nancy with kindness and patience and we are very grateful to them all.

The family will host a Celebration of Life on Saturday, October 6th at 11 am. Please join us at St. Francis Xavier Catholic churchyard at 790 Kilmalu Road, Mill Bay for a small ceremony and interment. We will move to Kerry Park Recreation Centre, 1035 Shawnigan Lake-Mill Bay Rd, Mill Bay, for refreshments and a chance to share memories.

In lieu of flowers, Nancy would have been delighted by a donation in her name to Habitat Acquisition Trust (
