BURRELL, Faye Mildred

November 10, 1939 – October 5, 2016

With heavy hearts, the family must announce the passing of Faye, after a short but very courageous battle with cancer.

Faye is the lifelong companion to Bob and lucky owner to her dog Bella. Faye is the mother to Laura, Bobby (Tracey), David (Britt), Shawna (Scott) and Guy (Kathleen). Faye is the grandmother to Robin, Byron, Kyle, Melissa, Sean, Sarah, Isabella, Brody and Kennedy: great grandmother to Liam and Enya. During Faye’s time with us she also cared for ninety foster children. Upon retiring to Hope, BC in 2004, Faye enjoyed an active life through her involvement with many volunteer and social clubs such as Communities in Bloom, Garden Club, Community Garden, Canyon Golden Age Club (treasurer for 7 years), Aqua-Fit, 55+ Exercise Group and Lunch with the Bunch. Through her involvement in the community, Faye forged many valuable friendships. The family of Faye would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank-you” to the many friends and the “Team” at Fraser Canyon Hospital for their compassion during Faye’s final journey.

A celebration of Faye’s life will be held at a later date. For those who wish to do so, in lieu of flowers, a donation can be made in memory of Faye to the following charities: Canadian Cancer Society, www.cancer.ca, Fraser Canyon Hospice Society, www.frasercanyonhospice.org or a local hospice of your choice.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
