It is with great sadness that the Ward Family announces the passing of their dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Nancy. She was and always will be “One of a Kind!”
Some history … aboard a ship setting off for Canada from Wales in May of 1927, 3-year old Nancy, her parents and 5 siblings traveled the seas, docking in Quebec City. The Cheston family would eventually settle in Alberta and then moved to Vancouver after the War.
Nancy met, and in 1945 married the love of her life, Harold in Vancouver. They spent many years in Prince George raising their 4 boys and made countless life-long friends along the way. In retirement, they moved to Shady Rest Park in West Kelowna where they were valued members of the community and the Royal Canadian Legion. Nancy moved to the Heritage Retirement Home in September, 2018. She enjoyed volunteering for “Meals on Wheels” and had her own paper route in the community for many years!
Nancy was predeceased by her husband, Harold in 2003, son, Terry in 2006 and daughter-in-law, Debbie in 2014. She is survived by her sons, Bill (Carol), Alan (Shelly) and Gary (Page); 7 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, all of whom she loved with all of her heart. She is also survived by numerous relatives, far and near, and a multitude of friends.
Her love and zest for life was contagious and couldn’t help but rub off on everyone who knew her well or even had a one-time encounter with her. Such an amazing, special woman, who will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Nancy’s Life will be held at a later time. Please consider making a memorial donation in Nancy’s name to the charity of your choice.
