Faye Bryce of Sorrento, BC passed away peacefully at home on May 13 at the age of 72 surrounded by her family.
Faye leaves behind her husband Gerry; daughters Jackie and Kathy; grandchildren Kevin, Kayla, Nathan and Morgan; and sisters Betty (Dean), Joan (Al) and many nieces and nephews.
She was born in Saskatoon, SK on June 4, 1944 then moved to Abbotsford where she met her high school sweetheart, Gerry, at the age of 14 and last month they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Faye taught school before they bought Shell gas stations. She then used her fantastic organizational skills to keep things running smoothly. She was always very involved with her kids, whether it be coaching their ball team or cheering from the sideline. The highlight for Faye was definitely her grandkids. She took great enjoyment in helping out wherever she could, taking them on trips and always being there for them. But it wasn’t just her 4 grandkids who would call her Grannie, she was known by many others that way as well. Her door was always open and there was always fresh cookies coming out of the oven when you came by.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, May 27 at 2:00 at St. Mary’s Church in Sorrento. Refreshments to follow at the Notch Hill Hall. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the cancer society.
