It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Coral Faye Engelson (nee Boretta) on July 26, 2012. Born June 2nd 1941. Coral is predeceased by her father Joe Boretta and survived by her husband Monte of 49 years, her son Rodger (Sonja), grandson Dallas, her daughter Cordelia (Graham) grand daughter Anna, mother June Boretta, brothers Stanley, Brian and Tasso, her sisters Joanne and Judy, nieces Tannis and Keri, nephews Leonard and Bradley and many cousins. Coral was first a homemaker and when she finally had some spare time became a designer and maker of gold and silver jewellery. She had a great love for her home and gardens at “Tamare” There was always a large German Shepherd and a cat or two at her side. In her later years she had many health issues which she battled heroically. A gathering to celebrate her life will be held at the family home which she loved so much. This will be at 2443 Calais Rd, Duncan, BC, Wednesday, August 1st 2012 at 130pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charities of the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club.
