Cecily Stainsby (nee White) passed peacefully on Wednesday morning, May 21, 2014 at the Hillside Village residence with her family by her side. Cec was born the third youngest of thirteen children on September 24, 1925 at Exeter, NSW, Australia. She is survived by one sister, Hester, of Tamworth, NSW, Australia. Cec leaves behind her children, Ken, Brian, Susan and Hugh and her grandchildren, Shannon, Christopher, Drew, Scott, Hunter, Tovah and Paul. All will miss her very much but are sustained by the strength, good humour and dignity by which she lived her life to the end. Although Cec lived in Canada since the fifties, part of her heart was always in Australia.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Hillside Village and Dr. Chris Weicker who cared for Cec with such love.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Bowers Funeral Chapel, Salmon Arm, BC (440 10th St SW) at 11:00 am May 31st, 2014.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would remember the service and love which guided Cec’s life.
