Dreda Florence (1920 – 2007) passed away peacefully September 1, 2007 with family at her side. She was born in Cobble Hill on Vancouver Island and resided in Abbotsford since 1958.

While raising her family Dreda began studying and teaching music. She spent the next 35 years teaching music theory in Abbotsford. Dreda dedicated many years volunteering in the community including work with the Hospice Society and at the Cottage Hospital where she touched the lives of many people. Gardening was a passion and she took every opportunity to create a beautiful and nurturing environment. Dreda was a mentor to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed.
A family memorial is planned. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
