Aug. 1, 1918 – Jan. 15, 2008
It is with great sadness that the family of Herminia Vieira announces her passing after a brief illness, on Tuesday, January 15, 2008. She was born in Pera, Portugal on August 01, 1918, and was 89 years old. Herminia came to Canada with her seven children in 1970, and dedicated her life to her family. She loved flowers, gardening and spending time with all her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She was predeceased by two daughters, Isabel and Madalena. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband John and her children Joe (Eulalia), Lourdes (Rick), Fatima (Jim), John (Liz), daughter Connie and sons-in-law John Gallo and Frank Silva. Herminia will also be fondly remembered by her 13 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Funeral Mass was held Saturday, 2:00 p.m. January 19, 2008 at St. Jude’s Catholic Church with Father Kenneth Anorou presiding. Donations can be made in her name to the Canadian Cancer Society of B.C. The family would like to thank Dr. Street and all the nursing staff at Mill Site, Fischer Place, and the 100 Mile Hospital for the special care of our loved one.
