HARRY, Edith (Babs)
September 3, 1934 – January 21, 2015
It is with deep regret we announce the passing of Babs Harry, surrounded by her family at the Fraser Canyon Hospice.
Babs was born in Middlesex, England, where she married her life long partner Ken in 1954. They immigrated to Canada with their 4 children in 1966 and settled in Langley for 43 years; raising their children and fostering many children and one very special foster child, Angelique Nelson, for 38 years. Babs volunteered for LSRRC driving seniors for their appointments and was nominated for Langley’s Women of Excellence in 1999. She had a passion for crossword puzzles, was a champion many times over at Jeopardy, avid knitter making many blankets and sweaters and had a passion for gardening and was known as the “Plant Whisper”! Babs was predeceased by her parents Bert and Edie, her husband Ken and her grandson Travis. She is survived by her children Pam (Ron) Kempner of Princeton, Piers (Louise) Harry of Horsefly, Gillian (John) Flynn of Philadelphia and Ian (Cathy) Harry of Hope. Also survived by her two brothers Bob and John and three sisters Peggy, Jackie and Annette plus 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Babs will be fondly remembered as the “Flower Lady of Kettle Valley Place” by all who knew her. She touched so many hearts. The family sends their sincere thanks to Dr. Razouki and all the nurses at Fraser Canyon Hospital. With a special thanks to Asher. Babs wished to have a garden Celebration of Life which will be held at a later date. If you so desire, a donation in her memory can be made the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society.
