Late of Maple Ridge, B.C. Born in Portsmouth, England.

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our Mum, Nana, Grandma and GG who was the most loving person we knew. Mum loved gardening and was a large presence in the guiding community for many years.

She is predeceased by her husband Ernie, her parents Ronald and Kate Nye, her siblings Ron Nye (Fran), Grace Baker (Paddy), niece Helen and granddaughter Tara Leigh Penny.

She leaves behind her children John, Kate, June, Chris, Jim, Sue (Gary) and grandchildren Amanda, Tylere, Alyssa, Dakota, Destiny and great granddaughter Katana, as well as many relatives in England, Ireland and Scotland.

A Celebration of Life will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (11750 207 Street, Maple Ridge, B.C) on Wed, April 19 at 7:00PM.

We would like to thank all of the wonderful nursing staff at the Bailee House, Hawthorne Care Center and the Path Unit at Ridge Meadows Hospital who cared for our Mum in her last weeks here on Earth.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to the BC Cancer Society or the Baillie House.


We miss you Mum.
