Bertha Elizabeth (nee: Bankey) THOMPSON

Our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, who so lovingly guided our lives left us with a legacy of love having passed quietly on April 30, 2015 in the 100 Mile House District Hospital at the age of 93.

Bertha was predeceased by the love of her life, Bob. She is survived by her daughters; Carol (Peter – deceased), Joanne (Jim) and Beverly (Mark), grandchildren; Sheryl (Terry), Scott (Barbara), Paul, Jennifer (Bill) and Jimmy (Kayla), her great grandchildren; Ann-Marie, Allissa, Brooklyn, Brayden, Declan, Jacob and Luke as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Bertha’s family will always remember her wonderful meals and the abundance of food for any extra guests who might arrive unannounced. She will also be remembered for her quick wit, years of knitting hats and vests to be given to those in need, and social Sundays at the United Church in 100 Mile House. She loved the personal interaction and camaraderie with her many friends and family.

Thank you to all the Home Support caregivers for their special attention to Mum over the years and to the medical staff at the 100 Mile House District Hospital and Dr. Lubbe who were all very kind and caring.

The family asks that donations in lieu of flowers be made to the charity of your choice.

A celebration of Bertha’s life will be held at the 100 Mile House United Church on Sunday, May 17 at 2 p.m. with a Social Tea to follow.
