Jessie Lloyd 1907-2012 of Trail passed away peacefully in the evening of Friday, March 23, 2012 at the Poplar Ridge Pavilion Care Home in the presence of her family.
Jessie arrived in Trail in 1975 and stayed. She made a multitude of friends in this time and really enjoyed her life in the Kootenays. She is survived by her daughter Thelma and her family, her sister Edna and her family in the U.K. and son Geoffrey Lloyd of White Rock. She was predeceased by her husband Edward (Ted) in 1974.
Heartfelt thanks to the amazing, caring staff of Poplar Ridge, Columbia View Lodge and to Dr. Roland Phillips who were always there for her. Also to the Hospice volunteers for holding her hand when she was in desperate need of physical contact. Special thanks to Linda and her family, Candy, Anne and Olive for providing all the little extras that made her life bearable in those latter years.
Cremation has already taken place with no fanfare or fuss which was her request. There will be a celebration of her life later in April, to which all family, friends and care staff will be invited. Sarah Greenwood of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
As an expression of sympathy, donations in Jessie’s name may be made to either Poplar Ridge Pavilion at 1200 Hospital Bench, Trail, BC V1R 4M1, or Columbia View Lodge at 2920 Laburnum Drive, Trail, BC V1R 4N2 or to the Trail Hospice Society at Suite #7 - 1500 Columbia Avenue, Trail, BC V1R 1J9.
You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence.
So sorry to hear about Jessies passing. During her stay at Columbia View Lodge, her and I had many wonderful chats. She was so sweet and kind, I am going to miss her warm and accepting heart.
Dear Thelma, Geoffrey and family, We send you our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Your mom was a great lady. We always had a great time working together at the Trail Times. She always was such a happy person. She also made the best desserts. We will all miss her so much. May God's strength and comfort get you through the sad time. Love and Sympathy to all of you. Louise and Tom Yuris
