Patricia Andersson



We regret to announce the death at Vernon

Jubilee Hospital on December 20, 2008, of Patricia

Andersson, at the age of 71 years. She was a

resident of Wells, Smithers, Kitwanga and Hazelton

over the years, and was Postmaster at Telkwa for a

long time prior to retiring to Lumby in 2003.

Patricia was predeceased by her husband, Nils,

in July 2008. She will be sadly missed and lovingly

remembered by her children: Ren (Debbie) Andersson

of Terrace and Linn (Neil) Buchanan of Kamloops;

grandchildren Tiffany and Bethany of Terrace; sister

Lenora Fogarty of Salmon Arm, and brother David

Williams of Wells, BC. She also leaves to mourn

numerous extended family members in Canada and

in Sweden.

A gathering to celebrate her life was held on

Sunday, December 28, at 1:30 p.m. in the O.A.P.

Hall in Lumby. In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to

do so may make donations in her memory to the

Canadian Cancer Society.

The family wish to extend their thanks to Patricia’s

many friends at “The Villas” and at the Lumby Legion

for their great kindness and support. Also, many

thanks to the caring staff and doctors at Vernon

Jubilee Hospital and at the Kelowna Cancer Centre.
