Gloria Mae Corfe

Gloria passed away peacefully at the Bulkley Lodge in Smithers, B.C. on June 7 at the young age of 83.

Gloria was born in Olds, Alberta on May 26, 1929.

She had a passion for life and her family and when anyone asked how she was doing she would answer sweetly and with a smile “just tikety boo.” Gloria married George Thomas Corfe in Woodstock, Ontario in 1950 and raised six children together. Gloria and George moved to the Bulkley Valley in 1978 and settled on Walcott Road. When they became too ill to remain too far away from doctors, they moved to their daughter’s property on Laidlaw Road where they remained until they each moved in consecutively to the Bulkley Lodge. Gloria is predeceased by George and leaves behind her sons Tom (Corfe), Gordon (Corfe), and her four daughters Kate (Corfe), Maggie (Gibson), Julie (James), and Lisa (Valerio), as well as 15 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.

Gloria made many friends at the Bulkley Lodge and will be missed by all and especially by her closest friend Fred Vance. She will be fondly remembered and in our hearts forever.

It was Grace that brought you safe thus far

And Grace will lead you home.

Rest in peace Mom, we love you.

There will be no service for Gloria, at her request. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Bulkley Lodge Addition Project.

We, the children of Gloria Corfe, would like to thank all the staff at the Bulkley Lodge and to Dr. Strauss and his staff for all your efforts to make our Mom happy and comfortable in the last few years of her life. It meant a lot to all of us and Mom to have such caring and understanding people take care of her. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Julie, Kate, Maggie, Tom, Gord, and Lisa.
