Edith Weismiller

June 1, 1920 - September 16, 2012


With sadness we announce the passing of our mother on September 16th at Cerwydden Care in Duncan B.C. Mum who was 92 was predeceased by her beloved husband Don, son-in-law Jim, grandson Mike and all her siblings and their spouses. She will be dearly missed by daughters Joanne, Barb (Keith), Janice (David) and Sandra (Ron), grandchildren, Larissa, Brandon, Melanie, Krista, Jeff. Rod, Nicole, Brian, Adrian, Duncan and Meghann. Mum also loved her beautiful great grandchildren Trevor, Callie, Aidan, Ethan, Erik and Casey.
Mum was born in Ladysmith B.C. At age 18 she moved to Victoria to attend St. Josephs Nursing School. After graduating she worked at Kings’ Daughters Hospital in Duncan. In 1945 she married Don and settled in Duncan until 1952 when they moved to Lake Cowichan. She spent the rest of her life there until she went into Cerwydden Care in August 2011.
Mum was a wonderful homemaker. She was a great cook and we all have the best memories of her homemade Christmas chocolates and candies. She was also interested in gardening and always so proud of her roses. She had great skills with crocheting, sewing and embroidery and made many beautiful items. In 1963 she went back to work as the nurse in the Doctor’s office in Lake Cowichan. Her efficient and down to earth manner served her well there until she retired in June of 1980.
In later years Mum’s greatest joy was their place at Deep Bay. She so loved to be with Dad by the ocean and enjoyed all their fishing trips.
The family would like to express our sincere thanks to all the staff at Cerwydden for the loving care they gave to Mum over this past year. Also a huge thanks to Cowichan Valley Hospice for their vigil in Mum’s last days.
We will miss you Mum but you will always be in our hearts.

The service will be held on Friday September 28 at 1 PM at the Lake Cowichan United Church at 10 North King George Road.
In lieu of flowers, in her memory, please make donations to Cerwydden Care at 3243 Cowichan Lake Road, Duncan B.C. V9L 4B8 and/or Cowichan Valley Hospice 3122 Gibbons Road, Duncan B.C. V9L 1G2
