We Remember


October 3, 2011 — August 6, 2013


With broken hearts we announce the passing of our beloved daughter, Paige Darrell Ann Moench.

Our beautiful little Paige gathered her last thoughts and memories, put on her tiny wings and left this earth peacefully on Aug 6, 2013 at 3:42 in the morning with her Mommy, Daddy and big brother Easton right at her side. She went to heaven at the age of 22 months.

Paige was born a healthy, smiley baby on October 3, 2011. She was best described as an “easy baby”, she ate well, slept well and played every moment she wasn’t doing either of those. In her sixteen months of life prior to her leukemia diagnosis, Paige lived a full life. She was able to experience family vacations to southern California and Maui in 2012. She played aboard a whale watching tour and strolled the beaches at sunset. She loved playing with other kids, going to the park, and boating on Okanagan Lake with her family. She was a girly girl and loved sporting her tutu on her first birthday, was attracted to sparkly things, but also loved to roll around in the sand.

Paige was full of LIGHT, LOVE and HAPPINESS. She smiled and laughed easily, was moved by music, hugged with all her might and loved to play with her big brother Easton. Paige taught everyone around her to find joy in the simple things. She will be remembered for her love of long walks, reading books and tracing hands. She was an expert at blowing bubbles, making impeccable animal sounds and hosting the finest of tea parties.

Above all she was happy.


She was so very, very special

And was so from the start

We held her in our arms

But mainly in our hearts

And like a single drop of rain

That on still waters fall

Her life did ripples make

And touched the lives of all

She’s gone to play with angels

In heaven up above

We keep our special memories

And treasure them with love

Although our darling Paige

Was with us just a while

She’ll live on in our hearts

With a sweet remembered smile

The support of our family, friends and community over the last 6 months enabled us to spend every moment possible with our baby girl while she fought leukemia. She was brave and so extraordinarily strong through all that she had to endure; her strength inspired us, and everyone around us.

 We would like to thank B.C. Children’s Hospital, oncology staff as well as the loving care providers at Canucks Place Children’s Hospice where Paige lived out the last of her days in comfort.

 Paige leaves to mourn her mother Natelle Moench (grandparents Kimberly Wallan and the late Darrell Sawchuk), her father Chris Moench (grandparents Bonnie and Gerald Moench) and devoted big brother Easton (4 years old). She will be missed by family and friends near and far.

 A celebration of Paige’s precious life will be held on Saturday August 24th 2013 at 4:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna. Light snacks and refreshments to follow. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Canucks Place Children’s Hospice in honour of Paige.

  • Pat & Alison Landers says:

    At this unbearable time, sending condolences seems so inadequate but it is all we can do from such a distance. There are many unknown souls whose hearts have been touched by your tragedy, prayed for Paige’s healing or gentle release from suffering, and continue to pray for the restoration of her family. I hope that you will take some comfort knowing that our spirits walk with yours during this difficult time and although you might feel alone, our thoughts are with you.
    Peace be with you.

  • Rick says:

    For Paiges family,
    We have never met but you do know of me. Your friend Jodine called me this spring and asked me to do some work in your yard while you were in Vancouver with Paige. It was my pleasure to help in a small way.
    I said my prayers for Paige and your
    family often over the last few months knowing of the struggle that lay ahead. I always wondered how she was doing. So it broke my heart today to find, she had passed away.
    I wish I could find the words to tell you how sorry I am for your loss,or offer you hope that you will not be so sad soon. But I can not. There just is not anything that I can say or do that will take away your pain.
    But someday, you will start to be a little less sad, and remember her with a smile and not a tear. Until then my thoughts and prayers will be with all of you…and Paige.
    Sincerely Rick

  • TinaV says:

    I have been praying for Paige and her family everyday. I do not know you but like many that have posted condolences, I am saddened that such a tiny adorable and spirited child has been taken away so soon. Her smile in that picture tugs at my heart strings and brings tears to my eyes every time I look at it. I came across this quote the other day and I hope it will give you some solace. “Death leaves a heart ache no one can heal, but love leaves memories no one can steal” May your memories and the expressions of sympathy from your community give you comfort and courage.

  • Karleen (Karlee) Stubbs says:

    Natelle , it’s me Karlee, old old friend from way back in the Hythe days. I heard today from Trish up in Stewart about your daughter. We vacation up there and I ran into her. I’m so sorry Natelle, all I can do when I read this is cry. I want to pass all my strength and love on to you and your family right now to help you get through this tragic time. I think about you Natelle and how silly we used to be and I can only imagine how your daughter loved you so very much and probably thought you were so funny and cool like i did when we were young. What a lucky little girl to have had you for her mum. Love you Natelle and have always often thought of you and your family please email me if you want.

  • Pat Thurston says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of Paige’s family. Old friend from Bow Island and Lethbridge of Paige’s grandma and grandpa Moench. Love to you, Bonnie and Gerald. And hugs to Chris and Natelle.
    Sincerely, Pat Thurston
