Crystal (Chris) Wade

January 20, 1920 – July 28, 2008

My Mother passed away peacefully in the early dawn after

a brief illness. Born and raised in England, she returned

on many occasions to visit with her sister Myrtle, family

members and friends. Following her service in WWII with

the British Forces she immigrated to Ontario, Canada.

Settling in Caledon, she established a successful horse

business and continued to be a celebrated rider. After a

change in life’s direction, Mum moved my brother Michael

(deceased in 2006) and I to Pender/Saltspring Island,

British Columbia. She enjoyed the island life and became

involved and well known in the communities. My wife (Karen),

daughter (Rachelle) and I were fortunate enough to

have Mum live on the same street in Black Creek, Vancouver

Island for the last nine wonderful years.

My mother will also be lovingly remembered and sadly

missed by grandchildren Christopher, Jessica, Jordan, as

well as relatives, friends and all those who knew her. Mum

lived everyday with a strong willed passion and concern

for everyone. She will be remembered for her wonderful

sense of humour and her unique perspective on life. May

we all be blessed to know a person like her; she will forever

be in our hearts and memories.

There are just not enough words to express how much I

will miss you Mum. All my love, your son Philip.

We gratefully acknowledge the special care given by Dr.

Ness and the 3rd fl oor staff at Campbell River Hospital.

There will not be a service as per her request.
