Nellie West of Camrose passed away on Sunday, March 24th, 2019 at the age of 88 years at Bethany Meadows.
Nellie will be remembered as a loyal friend, loving mother and a special Grandma and Great-Grandma by her children Larry (Simone) West, Charmaine (Ken) Hinds and Brenda (Jim) Wideman, nine grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren with two more arriving in June. She is also survived by her sister Lucy, son-in-law Ken, sister-in-laws Donna and Joan and numerous nieces and nephews.
Nellie was predeceased by her loving husband Howard, daughter Beverley, her parents, brothers Roy and Eddie and brother-in-law Danny. Nellie will live on eternally in our hearts and memories - we will never forget her! I always said that mom had nine lives, she was a trooper to the end.
Nellie took pride in keeping her yard and flower gardens in a perfect state and looked forward to visiting the local greenhouses each year to purchase her bedding plants. She loved square dancing, bowling, long walks, camping, fishing, spending time with family and friends and travelling within Canada and to warmer climates. She also enjoyed her time volunteering at St. Mary's Hospital and Rosehaven.
The family is grateful that their mom was able to die peacefully in her home at Bethany Meadows because of the caring and compassionate staff and wish to thank each of them.
A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, March 30 at the Camrose United Church, Camrose, AB.
