Bella Walt

September 19, 1939 - November 12, 2013


It is with sad hearts we must announce our darling mom/sister BELLA MARIE ESMA WALT, the kindest friend, loving, thoughtful, gentle and truest of all- has gone home to the angels above where there’s nothing but happiness joy and love.

Gone from this world – back to God – she leaves us behind for us not to wish her back

But to pray she will embrace and enjoy her gift from God –  to embrace the love of all who knew her and to know she was loved by all. Some day we hope to meet her – Some day we know not when, to hold her hand in the better land never to part again. God only takes home the very best – and she was the best of the best! Today and forever our hearts will be heavy  – memories brings you back –in life we loved you dearly, in death, we do just the same. When days are dark and friends are few, Mom/Sis we miss you more.

She leaves behind to cherish her memories and remember her always to love her more everyday, children: Kim (Dan) Darwin, Ernie Laktin, Kandase Walt (Ryan), Lawrence Walt, Ray Hamilton, Sisters Claire (Gord), Linda (Roland). Grandchildren: Lanaya (Greg), Craig (Deanna), Daniel (Kelly), Courtney, Zane, Lita, Maile, Madysen, Eddy, Lucas, Kaylum, Paige, Great grandchildren, Alexander, Reese, Rilely, Kerian, Liam, Aydan. Her extended family at Wexford …never thought of as staff to us.. Whom we know she loved and adored and who in return held her hand, kissed her cheek and returned her love.

Bella was born in Naicum Sask, to her predeased parents, Ernest and Yvette Tetrault.  The family moved to BC where she grew up. She was the eldest of three girls with her shoes being hard to fill.  Growing up and finding her way she had many exciting jobs and opportunities. She was strong – full of courage – she provided the strength, love, happiness we all needed to grow up and become who we are today. She will always be remembered for her days of not only working at the Village Green and Legion – but being the parent, friend, confidant to many.   She eventually managed the Village Green Beer and Wine store and enjoyed the new adventure. After retirement she proudly volunteered in the local RCMP COPS program and the Nagg games. Her greatest times were with her family and friends, laughing, and enjoying life’s little moments. She loved to dance and was always known to out dance everyone. One of her greatest pastimes was taking a  walk– no matter how hard we tried we were never able to keep up to her and she out lapped us on every occasion right to the end of her strolls.

Mom/Sis was known by many and loved by lots.

When you are out for a walk, take a second, remember her bright eyes and her smile that warmed your heart – say “Hi” – she will hear you and brighten your day and she will whisper in your ear  “Love You Lots”.

Mom/Sis  you are gone from us now –  for only a short time – till you take us by the hand and protect us as we know you will – Always and forever  in our prayers and our thoughts.

From: Carol-Ann Rolls
Relation: Volunteer

On behalf of the Cowichan Community Policing Society, I extend our condolences to Bella’s family. She was one of our Citizen on Patrol volunteers. She always brought a smile and chuckle to her shifts. We’ve lost another volunteer, but there’s one more angel to keep us safe. *(I unfortunately can not attend the service on Sat due to another commitment, but I will think of her and her family).

From: Dean McCuaig
Relation: Neighbor

My condolences. Bella was our neighbor back in the early 70s when our family lived on Campbell Street. She was a busy working mom, but always had time for the neighbor’s kids. Even as a kid, I could figure out that she was someone special. My sincere condolences.

From: Mike Coleman
Relation: Bella was our neighbour on White Road when we first moved to Duncan.

Sorry to have missed the service as we were away. Bella was a warm and caring person and a friend. Our personal condolences to the family
