LAING. Bessie Charlotte Rebecca (nee Hobbis) Jan. 12, 1921 ~ July 14, 2011
Bessie passed away peace- fully at the Ridge Meadows hospital on July 14, 2011 at the age of 90 with her sons Bob and John and daughter Cathy at her side. Born in Vermillion Alberta, she grew up and lived for many years in the Burquitlam area, moving to Maple Ridge in 1973. Throughout her life, she loved her flower gardens and the birds who regularly visited them. Bessie was predeceased by her husband Jack and her daughter Betty and will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A heartfelt thanks from Mom and her family to her friends, her caregivers from the Fraser Health home support team and Doctor Mawani. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. At Mom’s request no service will be held, but a small gathering of friends and family will be scheduled for later in the summer.
