Sharon HOPE

HOPE, Sharon Rose. March 10, 1953 –

July 31, 2012. Sharon Hope passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 59 at her home in Yale, BC. She is survived by her loving husband, Robert Hope, her children Dominic (Chantelle) Hope, Vanessa (Jesse) James, and her beloved grandchildren Tyler Paul-Marino, Jesse Paul, Dyllan James, Marcus James, Nicola James and Hayven Hope; her siblings Joyce Jackson, Chris (Dean) Peters, Tim (Carol) Peters, Thelma (Glen) Florence, Lolly (Gary) Peters, Don (Jessica) Peters, and Aunt Sophie Charlie, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. Sharon was predeceased by her parents P.D. and Maggie Peters, her brother Herman Peters, her sisters Suzanne Peters, Dorothy Peters, and nephews Derwin Peters, Christopher Jones, and Sonny Florence. A traditional service was held at Yale First Nation Government Centre on August 4, 2012, officiated by Fr. Peter Altamirano, and buried in the Yale First Nation Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Sharon’s name to her favourite charity, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Sharon was a dedicated grandmother who could be heard cheering at many hockey, soccer, swimming games and band concerts. She was an avid Canucks fan who preferred to watch the games at home where she could cheer as loudly as she wanted, scaring her dogs in the process. When her children were in the Hope Otters Swim club, she decided to join them in the pool for those early morning practices, and completed the 25 mile challenge. A special thank you goes out to the many people who offered condolences and supported our family in numerous ways.
