REID,Nora Josephine (nee Turner)

June 12, 1923 ~ June 22, 2011

Nora, a long time resident of Abbotsford and recently of Nanaimo, BC passed suddenly unto her Lord on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at Nanaimo General Hospital. She had just celebrated her 88th birthday. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Bill. She is survived by her children, Valerie (David) Allen, Bill (Paulette) Reid and Trish Hill. She was “Nanny” to Jaime, Jennifer and Jonathan Allen and to Jessica and Sarah Reid, who all adored her. She was a doting great grandmother to Sofia, Victoria, Tobias, Katherine and William Allen and to Samantha Orr. She will be sadly missed by all. Nora’s ready smile and generous hugs endeared her to all, as did her wonderful sense of humour and “joie de vivre”. She was a bridge fiend while she lived in Abbotsford and at the cottage in Ontario. She spent hours nurturing her flowers. But, above all, she was devoted to her family and friends. We all have fond memories of Nora and anecdotes to share at the Celebration of her Life on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 at Henderson’s Fraser Valley Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Rd., Abbotsford, at 2:00 p.m. Rev. Connie Thompson will officiate. All her friends are welcome. Nora loved flowers, but she was always a strong supporter of the Cancer Foundation and of the Diabetes Association.
