We Remember

Chapman, Gladys May (Hap)

July 8, 1921 — June 14, 2013

It is with a great deal of sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our Mum.

Mum is survived by 3 children Ken (Adrienne) of Armstrong, Ian (Gwen) of Kelowna and Sheilagh (Norm) Jackson of Winfield;seven grandchildren, Sarah (Victor) Fellegi of Cochrane, Alberta, Jeremy (Sabrina) Chapman of Kelowna, Kimberly (Jason) Page of Durham N. Carolina, Josh of Fort Nelson B.C., Bryan (Tracy) Jackson and Scott (Niki) Jackson of Winfield, Emily (Norton) Hunt of Fort St. John; seven great grandchildren Liam, Coen, and Lukas Fellegi, Elodie and Callum Page and Eli Chapman and Linden Hiscox. Mum was predeceased by her husband Eric of 64 years in 2007 and her step-brother Herbert Farris in 1991.

Mum was born and raised in Okanagan Mission and lived her entire life in Kelowna. Active in her Parish of St. Andrews Anglican Church, she belonged to the ACW, the Altar Guild and in the Choir for many years. She loved to paint and was a founding member of the Kelowna Pallette Club and Watercolour Guild.

Mum was blessed with a cheerful disposition, a ready smile and a kind word to anyone. We were fortunate to have her as a Mum.

A celebration of Gladys’ life will be held on Thursday, June 27 2013 at 2:00 pm at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church 4619 Lakeshore Road, Reverend Canon Katherine Hall officiating. Mum will be interred beside Eric in St. Andrew’s cemetery. Reception will follow in the church Hall.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Missionwood, her caregivers from We Care, especially Olga Markwart and the Parish family of St. Andrew’s.

In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Heart and Stroke foundation or Central Okanagan Hospice Association – Hospice House.
