Vera Emily Wentworth passed away peacefully on December 9, 2017 at the age of 97 with her family by her side. Vera is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Dale and Hedy Wentworth. She will be missed by her grandchildren: Noel (Lora) Wentworth, Neil (Joanna) Wentworth, Nori (Kristen) Wentworth; great grandchildren: Lucas, Holly, Draven, Raef, Cairo, Jackson and Brynn. Vera is predeceased by her loving husband Walter; parents Jack and Peg Sharp and sisters Connie Baudais and Rene Luft. The Wentworth family wishes to thank the nurses and staff at Cottonwoods for their compassion and excellence, especially Dr. David Whiting and Mel for their years of dedicated and loving care.
As a military wife, Vera served her country with pride, travelling Canada extensively for 25 years before retiring to Kelowna in 1966. She was known to all as the fun loving “Energizer Bunny” with her brilliant, creative mind and big heart. Vera will be fondly remembered for her love of family and community; for her skill as a businesswoman in establishing Wentworth Music and other companies; for her enjoyment of organizing band trips and concerts and her passions for aquatics, fishing and BINGO.
A Celebration of Life was held on December 18, 2017 at Guisachan House – one of her favorite places. In lieu of flowers, it would be much appreciated if friends wishing to make contributions in memory of Vera would do so to the charities of their choice.
