GREGOR, Vernice Ruby
Went to be with the Lord Friday, August 28, 2015 at the age of 90. Survived by her loving husband of 70 years, Herb, sons Daryle Gregor (Holly Hardman) and Dale (Lynette) Gregor, daughter Carol (Randy) Hamel, grandchildren Christopher, Brian, Lori-lynn, Michael, Susan, Lindsey and Kurtis, and 10 great grandchildren. Sadly predeceased by her son Dwayne, one great grandson and her sisters Alva and June.
Vernice Ruby Norden was born on the family farm at Newdale, Manitoba, the middle of three sisters. Her father gave her the middle name Ruby after one of his prized Percheron mare, so it was no surprise that Vernice would have a lifelong love of horses and animals. Vernice went on to graduate from Briercrest Bible Institute in 1945, when it was still located at Briercrest, Sask. It is there that she meet Herb Gregor. They started their journey of 70 years together at Hilltop, Manitoba on May 4th, 1945.
Vernice’s love and caring went well beyond her family. She graduated from nursing school and nursed for many years in Canada and Australia, before becoming a reflexologist and alternative health care provider. Vernice loved her work, and the people she worked on, keeping in touch with many even after her body grew weary.
Vernice also loved animals, giraffes being her favorite, but many friends will remember the little lamb, Lollipop that stole her heart.
She will be sadly missed by her family and her many friends.
