DAUGHERTY, Darlene. August 2, 1937 – September 27, 2014. With great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Darlene was a long time Hope resident, she battled cancer, doing so well to the very end, showing us all what strength, courage and what the little things in life really mean. The disease took her on the afternoon of September 27, 2014. She will be remembered for her knitting of slippers, toques, sweaters, and doll clothes, donating many at Christmas.
She loved her family more than anything, laughing, gardening, feeding the squirrels and chasing the Steller Jays away. Gee Gee always made the best hot dogs and had crazy cups to drink from. Darlene leaves behind daughter; Bonnie (Randy), sons; Kevin (Shelley), Randy (Elaine), grandchildren; Darren (Kristina), Trisha (Dave), Chad (Casey), Trevor (Kerry), Brian, Calvin, Devan, Craig, Tyler, Kyle, Taylor. Great grandchildren; Kennedy, Nolan, Sharlene, Cayden, sister; Irene and many nieces, nephews and many great friends. A special thank-you goes to Annette for being there to hold Mom’s hand. She was loved very much and will leave a gap in the lives of her family and friends. The family is extremely grateful to the staff at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack and various other physicians and hospital staff. The nurses always put a smile on her face. Also to Lorraine and Sharon from Hope palliative care for the care and guidance. We are also extremely grateful to the ladies in the complex for all their hugs, words of kindness, goodies and support. There is no funeral by Mom’s request. Donations can be made to the Hospice or SPCA in Mom’s name.
