It is with heavy hearts we say our Goodbye’s to Dilys Ida Singer who passed away Thursday, September 17, 2015 at the age or 87.  She will be dearly missed by her husband Frank of 63 years, her sister Donella Krebs of Coquitlam, BC and many nieces and nephews.  Dilys (Dil) was born in Banff, AB in 1928.  The family moved to Kelowna in 1942 where she worked for BC Tel, the Packing House and as a Doctor’s assistant.  She also spent many years supporting her husband in his orchard and his many business endeavors, which included Shady Rest Fish & Chips.  Dilys loved to play bridge and enjoyed many an afternoon at the local casino.  Gardening was her passion and she grew beautiful award winning roses.  She loved life and entertaining and there were many happy dinner parties at the Singers.  Dilys was extremely courageous in her latter years enduring many medical difficulties.

She was predeceased by her parents Edna and Charles Clewley, her sisters Doris Dewberry, Audrey Smith and brother Gerald Locke.

    So many happy memories come to mind. Dil was more than an aunt to me. We could talk about anything, and I cherish the special relationship we had. Even while I was living in England she stayed in touch on a regular basis. She was always encouraging, interested and supportive. Frank we are sorry you have lost your wife and best friend and are here to support you in any way we can. Love Cheryl and Barry
