August 26, 1917 ~ January 27, 2012
It is with sadness that the family of Polly Pereverzoff announces her passing at Swan Valley Lodge at the age of 94.
Polly was born August 26, 1917 in Pass Creek, BC. She married Alex in Saskatchewan in 1933. They moved to Erickson in 1943 with their four children; Phyllis, Pauline, Bill and Dorothy. Polly was predeceased by husband Alex, son Bill, daughter Phyllis, great-granddaughter Jaida and sisters Helen, Anne and Mary.
She is survived by daughters Pauline Biccum, of Creston and Dorothy (Jim) Louie of Calgary; sister Mabel (Bill) Laktin of Salmo; also 7 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.
Polly was an accomplished seamstress, an excellent cook and enjoyed singing. She was a lifetime member of the Creston Seniors Branch 28, and enjoyed the socials and playing cards, with her name appearing in the local paper frequently. She will be remembered for her love, kindness and generosity.
The family wishes to exend their heartfelt appreciation to the doctors, nurses and staff at the Creston Valley Hospital; the staff at Swan Valley Lodge for their compassionate care while Polly was a resident. We extend our sincere thank you to our family, friends and neighbours for the kind expressions of sympathy, with cards, food, visits and telephone calls, and we wish to thank members of Creston Seniors Branch 28 for serving the delicious luncheon following the service. A most sincere thank you to Guy Roy of G. F. Oliver Funeral Chapel for his compassion and expertise in making arrangements for Polly’s service.
The Celebration of Life Service was held on Friday, February 3, 2012 at G. F. Oliver Funeral Chapel with Alex Ewashen officiating.
Interment took place at Forest Lawn Cemetery.
