ROGERS (nee Eden), Olive Emily
On September 26th 2009, Olive slipped away peacefully in her sleep with her daughters by her side just two days before her 94th birthday. Olive resided in Burnaby for the last five years after a lifetime in Maple Ridge. She was born and raised in Hammond. Olive was predeceased by her husband Bill (1994) and her son George (1982). She will be greatly missed by her daughters Rosemary Griffin (Don), Susan Ward (Jim), grandchildren Lisa Tear (Mike), Greg Griffin (Leanne Bowman), Chris Ward, Michael Griffin (Heather), Colin Ward and two great-grandchildren Logan and Aidan Tear. She had a keen appreciation for the beauty in life, and remained mentally active with diverse interests. The family greatly appreciated the support and kindness provided by the staff at the Willingdon Care Centre. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Parkinson Society of British Columbia or the Altar Guild at St. John Divine Anglican Church.
The service will be at St. John the Divine Anglican Church on Laity Street in Maple Ridge on October 17th, 2009 at 2pm. Expressions of sympathy can be made at www.gardenhill.ca
