July 13, 1926 – July 9, 2014

Veril passed away peacefully at Royal Inland Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

She was predeceased by: her parents Laurence and Gladys Paul, her husband Daniel, her brother Marvin, her sisters Ethyl and Phyllis, son-in-law-David, her great-grandson Grayson and partner Fred Kennedy. She is survived by her children: Edwin (Marian), Dave (Val), Margaret, Daniel (Connie), Gordon, Hazel, and James (Donna), 15 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren and 10 great-great-grandchildren, her sisters Millie, Faye, Joyce, Dorothy and brother Laurence

Veril was born on a farmstead in Herchel, Saskatchewan during the Great Depression. She moved to British Columbia to find employment where she met her husband, Daniel Jones. After her children were old enough, she worked for many years as a cook at the hospital in Smithers. She loved family weekend camping and fishing trips at lakes in the area. She was an active sports participant in her early years, playing baseball and curling.

Upon retirement she moved to Osoyoos and loved working in her garden and entertaining friends and family. She joined the legion and took great pride in all the good work she did with them, cooking and organizing events. Mom’s last years were spent at the Shores in Kamloops where she had many friends.

Mom loved life, and had a great sense of humour. She was strong-willed and determined. She provided a wonderful home for her children and friends. She lived life as strong as she could. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

The family wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to all of mom’s health care providers.
