“The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms” Deut 33:27a

It is with great sadness, after a short battle with cancer, we announce the sudden passing of our dear wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend. We are thankful to our Heavenly Father that she did not suffer much and is now at Home in peace.

She is survived by her loving husband of 52 years Bill and her children Annette (Dave), Joan (Pete), Arnie (Norma) and Matt (Sheri). She also loved each of her 19 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Callie was very active in the community, especially with the BVD Hospital Auxiliary Society. She served on the Board and volunteered with the New to You.  

We will all miss her kindness and her giving spirit.

A Memorial service was held at the Bethel Reformed Church on Thursday March 31st with burial in the Smithers Cemetery. In lieu of flowers it is requested that memorial donations be made to the Sparrows Christian Housing Society on Mom’s behalf, at PO Box 4120 Smithers, BC V0J 2N0. We would like to say thank you to Dr. Smith, Dr Knight and the staff at the Smithers Community Cancer Centre for all their care and support.
