May 15, 1922 ~ March 14, 2014
Lola Cameron, of Creston, died peacefully with her family at her side on March 14, 2014, at the age of 91.
Lola was born on May 15, 1922 in Piapot, Saskatchewan. She moved with her family from Saskatchewan to Creston in 1935. It was in Creston that she met her life long love, Alvin and was married in 1940.
Their first daughter Damaris was born in 1942, before the four year separation of World War II. Maurice was born in 1946, followed by Penny in 1949, and then Mark in 1952.
Motherhood was Lola’s finest skill and avocation, even devoting some years to the care of ‘welfare’ children, and yet she had time for much assistance in the family grocery businesses.
Her life was marked by a deep abiding and unassuming faith.
Lola was predeceased by two brothers, Albert and Lorne, two grandchildren, Cayla and Sarah-Lee.
Lola is survived by her loving husband of 73 years, Alvin; two sisters, Margaret Berg and Betty Gregg; four children, Damaris (Larry) Good, Maurice (Jean) Cameron, Penny (Phillip) Jones, and Mark (Lea) Cameron; nine grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
A Funeral Service was held on Wednesday March 19, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the GF Oliver Chapel.
In lieu of flowers friends wishing to make a memorial contribution may do so to the BC’s Children’s Hospital 4480 Oak St. Vancouver, B.C. V6H 3V4
