November 4, 1932 – March 11, 2013
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of
our beloved Mom, Frieda Lover. Mom passed away peacefully at Vancouver
General Hospital on March 11, 2013. Mom was predeceased by her husband John
and sister Corrie in Holland where Mom and Dad first met. They immigrated
to Canada in 1957 and were lifetime residents of Port Alberni enjoying the
country life on their hobby farm in the Beaver Creek area.
Mom is survived by her daughters Wendy (John), Dyan (Ron), Brenda (Floyd),
Sharon (Brent), her sons Johnny (Patti) and Raymond, her grandchildren
Lance, Josh, Danielle, Jacob, Jay, Jessica, Stephanie, Jordon and Janessa,
her great grandchildren Kylee, Cruz and Kobe, brothers Karl, Hank and Wim,
her nephew Rem (Janneke) and numerous other relatives in Holland.
‘Fearless Frieda’ will be remembered for her incredible strength, wicked
sense of humour and fierce independence to the very end. Mom had a deep love
of music, animals and especially her children.
We would like to thank Doctors Scudamore and Vandermerwe, the hospital staff
at both West Coast and Vancouver General, local home support workers and
Mom’s wonderful neighbours and numerous friends.
A memorial service will be held at the Chapel of Memories on Saturday March
16th at 2pm. Reception to follow at the Italian Center. Online condolences
may be offered at: www.chapelofmemories.ca
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the local SPCA in her memory.
