Della Vivian – 1921-2005

Della passed away at home on September 27, 2005 at the age of 84 years. She was born and raised in New Westminster, BC and moved to Haney in 1957 with her husband and children.

She was predeceased by her one and only sweetheart and husband of 44 years, John William Corrins, her son Grant, and daughters Elna and Sena. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Carol (Richard) Smith and Alynn (Paul) McKivett; grand-children Ken, John, Trevor, Alison, Meghan, Jason and Christine; and great-grandchildren Jordan, Connor, Daniel, Julian, Alex and William.

All who knew Della came to appreciate her spark for life and incredible perseverance through difficult times. She was always busy, and slowing down was not an option she would accept. In recent years, supplying her friends and family with homemade jams, pickles and shortbread cookies was a constant source of enjoyment.

A gathering of friends and family to remember our dear Della will be held Saturday, October 8, 2005 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Maple Ridge Legion Lounge, on 224th Street.

If family and friends are so inclined, in lieu of flowers, -memorial donations may be made to a charity of their choice.
