Regina was the first to be born in a hospital in Smoky Lake Alberta on February 13, 1945. The family lived in Smoky Lake until 1950 then they moved to Vancouver BC then in 1952 they moved to Terrace BC where she lived till her passing.
Regina was very special to her family and friends and she was always trying her best to fit in. She had a computer recall memory for dates and anniversary which was amazing, you could ask her when someone’s birthday was, and she would recall it along with any other birthdays or anniversaries that were on that same date or near that date.
One of Regina’s big wishes was to just fit in, to be like everyone else and when she moved in to the Graham house she got her wish, she got a new home with many new friends just like her, and staff who understood her, she finely fit in. She enjoyed walking to town with her friends, house projects TV, movies and anything to do with Elvis Presley. Regina always brought smiles to all her nieces and great nephews. And as the years went by Regina did not leave the house as much and slowly started leaving us. Regina was a very old soul that left an empty space in our hearts.
The family would like to say thank you to all the staff and friends past and present at Graham house who made her life so much better by being there for her.
At this time no memorial planned.
