POXON, Elizabeth

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Mum, Elizabeth Sylvia Rose Poxon, nee Tapp, on August 24, 2016 after a brief, courageous battle with cancer. Mum was pre-deceased by her parents Roy and Lucy Tapp and her baby brother Norman. She is survived by her four children; Regan (Kelly), Yvonne Halvorson, Wendy Foster, and Gerald (Jill), along with 8 grandchildren; Ashley, Brad, Dakota, Jaymee, Brian, Mackenzie, Paige and Katie, as well as 2 great grandchildren; Nicholas and Blaike. She also leaves behind 5 brothers and sisters, many nieces and nephews and countless friends. Mum always had a smile, a hug, and a helping hand. She saw only the good in people. She enjoyed many things but especially loved her gardening, her books, drawing, horses, walks along the ocean, weekends in the States with her girls and spending time with her friends (The Fab Four). But above all Mum loved God, her family and family gatherings. Her Memorial Service is on September 22nd at Northview Church, 32040 Downes Road, Abbotsford at 11:00 am. Reception to follow. The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Chistine Morrison, especially Janye, Yvonne and Blanche for their exceptional care. Thanks also goes to Kelli Blake for all her kindness and two of Mum’s wonderful nieces, Karen Probert & Gerri Hall for all their amazing love and support.
