It is with sadness that we announce the passing at Kelowna Hospice House of our mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Irene Holland (April 15, 1925 – September 27, 2017). Predeceased by her husband Joseph (1975), survived by her son, John (Hilda), daughter, Mary Ellen, grandchildren, Joanna (Chad), Jonathan, Kris (Lori-Ann), and great grandson Edison.
Special thanks and gratitude to the staff and nurses at Kelowna Hospice House, to Deep from Home First, to Interior Health Home Care, to Laurie and Erica at Independent Pharmacy, to Healthy at Home (Michael, Kim, & Leeanne), to hospitalists Dr. Jack Loken and Dr. Jonathan Price, and the nurses on KGH/4B, and to her personal physician Dr. Derek Adam for years of caring support.
“[She’s] been up and down and over and out/ [But we know]one thing/ Each time she found herself layin’ flat on her face/ She just picked herself up and got back in the race.”
There will be no funeral service, but in lieu of flowers a donation in her memory can be made to Central Okanagan Hospice Association. http://www.hospicecoha.org/donate-coha
Good Night & God Bless, Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma.
See you in the morning.
