Ella Hallet

October 2, 1931 - November 22, 2014


Predeceased by her husband, Bob. Ella was a loving mother and leaves behind her five children: Larry (Holly), Debbie (Bruce), Randy (Shannon), Shannon (Dale), Pat (Carrie) and grandmother to eleven grandchildren, GG to eight great grandchildren.  Also her two sisters Shirley (Barry) and Sharon (Clarence), sister in law Marge.

Born is Granum, Alberta she moved to the island, in the late 30’s, with her parents Pete and Pearl Bos and soon to be born Shirley and Sharon. They resided on Hornby Island, which was always the place Mom loved to return to and will always be her true home.

For 25 years Mom worked for Brentwood College where she became Head of Catering, nurturing and caring for all of the children for many years, which she thoroughly enjoyed.  She was an avid curler in the day and made many close friendships that lasted till this day.

Mom kept her children involved with every kind of sport and was there to see it all. With five children she didn’t let any of them down between working and home she always had time for her kids to drive, cheer and console.

Ella Hallet was a strong, independent woman and she always taught us the same values for which we will never forget.

Many thanks to Dr. Galbraith, Dr. Reynolds and Acacia Lodge for their tender care and love they showed to our mother.

Miss Me – But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

I want no tears in a gloom filled room

Why cry for a soul set free


Miss me a little but not too long

And not with your head bowed low

Remember the love that once we shared

Miss me – but let go.


For this journey we all must take

And for each must go alone

It’s all a part of a bigger plan

A step on the road to home

And when you are lonely and sick of heart

Go to the friends we know

And bury your tears in their loving arms

Miss me – but let me go

From: Catherine Gibbons Kinkead
Relation: co-worker

Ella was our tower of strength, yet didn’t mind leaning a bit to show her frailties. That’s just one of her tremendous qualities we remember; she had so many, and you, as her family, will have so many happy memories to cherish.

From: Nick Prowse
Relation: I worked with Ella at Brentwood where I was a teacher

Ella was a wonderful, kind, caring person much loved by all at Brentwood. It was a privilege to know her. For many years she was the heart and soul of the cafeteria managing not only to serve wholesome meals on a tight budget but also to be always a smiling, welcoming, presence to all who came in to eat. Thank you, Ella dear, you’ll be missed by all who knew you.
