With great sadness, the family of Chris Garrett announces the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandma and great grandma who left us Friday, May 23, 2014 after a lengthy illness.
Chris leaves behind her husband, Lorne Garrett, son Larry (Sue) and daughter Elaine, Grandchildren Darcy, Corey, Nicholas, and Kaitlin and great grandson Wyatt. Survived also by her sisters Del Frederick (Ed), Tammy Moore (Howard), and brothers Ron Graham (Heather) and Ed Coupland (Jane) and many nieces and nephews, as well as a large extended family. She was pre-deceased by her brother Wayne Edlund.
Chris was born in Calgary in 1942 and spent her childhood in the Golden area. After her marriage in 1960, she and Lorne moved to the Trail area where they raised their children, spent their working lives and then semi-retired to Christina Lake.
Until her illness restricted her activities, Chris was involved with the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Kidney Foundation, BEAKs and the SPCA. She enjoyed her gardening, taking in strays (dogs, cats, turkeys, peacocks, a chipmunk and even a lizard) and spending time with family and friends.
A Memorial will be held at the house. Saturday July 19, 2014. 1:00 pm at 1589 Neimi Road, Christina Lake.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Chris’s memory can be made to BC SPCA.
