Obituary

Obituary for Wilma Wilson

Wilson, Wilma
Jan. 19, 1929 - April, 2020

Patricia, Sandra, Cheryl & families are heartbroken to inform you of the passing of their Mother and Nana, Wilhelmina (Wilma) Wilson at the Sea To Sky Hospice.

Our Mum was born in Vancouver in the winter of 1929. As a young girl she moved with her parents Lawrence & Marguerite Webber and older sister Lenore to Bralorne, B.C., where her Dad was the resident plumber.
Back in Vancouver in later years she began working in sales, one day an intriguing voice on the phone that changed her life and resulted in a blind date and subsequent marriage in 1952 to our Dad Robert (Bob) Wilson.
After we were of school age, Mum went to work for the T. Eaton Co. at Park Royal.
In 1972 our family moved from North Vancouver to Squamish, where Mum spent almost 10 years running the "corner store" Wilson Cresent Centre.

In April 1981 life's path was changed dramatically with Mum & Dad relocating. They happily settled into their new home, planting gardens, building decks and enjoying the new neighbourhood. This is where they met their new neighbour Gwen, who become a treasured friend, she was a wonderful gift that continues for our family.
Mum enjoyed younger voices again, as in her desire to keep busy, she started a daycare for her friend Mindy's son and daughter and friend Lorraine's children.

The 80's & 90's ushered in the Nana journey for Mum who embraced her 11 grandchildren with her unending love and pride. Great grandchildren were yet a twinkle in her eye and by 2016, 3 had arrived.
After a long illness Dad sadly passed away in 1998, leaving Mum heartbroken and so very lonely.

Christimas 2000 was the start of happy trips to Vancouver Island, countless sunsets were enjoyed at waters edge as well as road trips with Cheryl and family.

In 2002 a very special fluffy orange kitten, who was named Flash, came into Mum's world filling her home with his company and affection.

Grandson Cameron who had endured serious health issues had his Nana's specail love as she helped with his care over the years. In 2015 Cameron spread his wings to join his Grandpa.

Looking after us all with her skills in the kitchen, Mum was a good cook and loved baking goodies for us, including the world's best peanut butter cookies.

We all had warm scarves to keep out the winter cold as Mum perfected knitting as well New born grandchildren were each honoured with a beautiful shawl blanket and many sweaters.

Our Mum was a kind, gentle, loving, strong and independent beautiful women who loved to dance. Always taking the time to stop and share a genuine friendly connection when meeting up with those that she knew from her 48 years here in Squamish was Mum's way.

So grateful for you Mum.
You made our hearts warmer
and our lives richer in too
many ways to count.
So much of the happiness
we've know can be traced
back to your love.
So... Thank you Mum
for all your caring and for
the lives we have because of you.

On a spring evening Mum peacefully left us to be reunited with the many who had predeceased her.
the love of her life husband Bob. Grandparents Mary Jane and William Ashman.
Infant son Mark, infant twin daughters, Debra & Delores. Aunt and Uncle Rose and Jim Myles. Parents Laurence and Marguerite Webber. Three infant granddaughters Amanda, Jennifer and Mary Jane. sister Lenore Burnham and her three adult children W.G. Rose and Paul. In laws Doris and Robert and brother-in-law Frank Wilson. Grandsons Joshua and Cameron Mannix.

We who remain will forever miss Mum, but our hearts are comforted by holding her love's spirit close and knowing that she is now free from the fears and pain of these last four years. Patricia (Steen) and children Sara (Brandon) and great granddaughter Ava, Erik (Krystal), Amy (Clayton) Jenna, Lauren (John) and great granddaughter Emma. Sandra and sons Michael and Matthew Cheryl (Tom) and sons Brandon (Kesley), great grandson Maxx, Cole (Jessie) and Jessie (Lauren). Brother -in-law Ron, sister -in-law Ellen and family. Marguerite LaBonta and family. Gwen Fisher. many friends and of course Flash.

It has taken me far too many days to be able to write something about this most amazing lady, a second Mom to me, a Gramma/care giver to our children! You loved all of us unconditionally and treated us like we were your own! You were truly one of the BEST Wilma. I am forever grateful we were all able to see you on Family Weekend, you were so happy, and looked wonderful.
You will be so missed sweet Wilma! Happy you are with your Bob!
Our deepest condolences to all of you girls, Pat, Sandy and Cheri and your ever growing families.
THE Truest Gem, our Wilma❤️
ALL of the L’Hirondelle Family

Marie Anne Wilson

I never called her Wilma...we laughed and met ...calling each other Mrs. Wilson. I visited her in the acute part of Sq. Gen. and she was missing her cat so much. She loved her family, and so proud of each of you. I wanted to be near her in her last days but due to Covid I was not allowed to be in the Hospice Unit. The last time i saw her we recalled when we first met, years ago when i stayed with Mr. Wilson while she went out in the evening. I said, "We have been friends for a long time." She reached out and held my hand and said, "....and we will be friends forever." God rest her soul...it was a blessing to know her. She is right there with you as you put your hand on your heart.
sincerely, Marie Wilson

Deepest sympathies & condolences to the Wilson family

Wilma was such a lovely woman with a heart of gold .
Her awsesome sense of humour was so pleasing & she could take jokes well.

How much I would tease her on her outings with her brother in law & the little stories I would tell her of what was happening at the moment .

From the early days of the corner store , to her late years , she was loved by all

Wilma , now you join your husband & other daughter in eternal peace .

You will always remain in my heart
