WARD, Norah “Denise” (nee Fader)

 Denise passed away in Victoria, BC, on April 5, 2024. Born in Vancouver, she was a proud graduate of Prince of Wales, class of 1955. She went on to St. Paul’s Nursing, graduating in 1959, where she dedicated her work to maternity and obstetrics.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Phil Ward (1926–2019), whom she met while traveling in Europe in the early 1960s. After living in London, they settled in Victoria and then Ottawa, raising their family before eventually retiring back to BC.

Denise is survived by her daughters, Carol and Nancy; five wonderful grandchildren; and one adorable great-grandchild.

A long-time resident of Salt Spring Island, Denise, or Denny to her friends, loved the outdoors, her beloved pets (Simba), walking, gardening, creative projects, and most of all, having a good laugh over a glass of wine. She will be missed.

Special thanks to the staff at Douglas Care in Victoria and Lady Minto on Salt Spring Island.

A private interment of ashes will be held later. Memorial donations may be made to the BC SPCA.
