We Remember

COURTNEY, Veronica

October 5, 1932 — April 16, 2023

On April 16, 2023, at Lakeview Lodge in West Kelowna, BC, our beloved mother/grandmother and favourite storyteller, Veronica Courtney, passed away. She goes to join her husband, Richard Courtney, and her brothers, Leo and Donald.  We, who are left here to mourn the loss, include: her son Don, daughter-in-law Heather, and grandchildren Alejandro & Susie; as well as her son Paul, daughter-in-law, Virgina Weiler, and grandchildren Leo & Magda. Veronica was a loving wife, mother, and grandma. She immigrated to Canada in 1962, and she worked as a Professional Customs Broker and was CEO of Courtney Agencies Ltd. She was tough, funny, independent, and gregarious; we loved her dearly.  A highlight she oft told us about was how she was there when The Beatles played at The Cavern Club in Liverpool, UK, what an experience!

Friends and family are invited to share more stories and gather for Veronica’s Wake, to be held on SATURDAY, MAY 13, 2023, at 2:00 PM, at the FAMILY HOME (2832 Thacker Dr, West Kelowna, BC). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to BC’s Waiting Children.
