    I had the opportunity of geting to know Coral as the Office Manager at the Okanagan Chateau. She was a wonderful, kind and loving soul. Coral had a great sense of humor and a quick wit. I had the pleasure of being involved in the celebration of Corals 100th birthday. Something I will never forget. Coral will always be remembered by all of those who had the pleasure of knowing her. I will never forget her, she was one of a kind. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
