We Remember

RAYSON (née Bannister), Mavis Jean

1945 – 2022

Born in Eastbourne, England, Min Rayson passed away in Kelowna, BC, Canada on April 30, 2022. Left to treasure her memory are her husband of 56 years, Eric, and their son, Sean Rayson, as well as her friends that are too many to list.

In 1967 Min sailed to Canada, where she made her home. She was a loving and compassionate soul, who truly made this world a better place. She became a Care Aid and helped those who needed it most. Also an avid outdoors person, Min loved nature and being active; she especially loved cycling and running marathons.  She was a good friend and she was loved by all, friends and family alike.

A Celebration of Life to honour Min will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Hospice House Central Okanagan.
