A Celebration of Life for Pidge will be held Saturday, April 18th, 2015 at the Shuswap Lake Estates Community Centre.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Pidge on Thursday, January 22nd after a lengthy illness. The matriarch of the Loftus family was born in Edmonton, Alberta on April 14, 1928 and later moved to Calgary where she and husband George “Bud” raised their 6 children. The last 39 years have been spent in the Shuswap area where they enjoyed many friends.
Her love of life was contagious and her presence in a room could never be missed. She was a passionate sports fan, a fantastic homemaker, and a gifted artisan. Her adeptness with a needle and a sewing machine was admired by all.
Pidge will be forever remembered and dearly missed by her husband of 64 years, Bud, and their 6 children: Robert, Jim (Brenda), Michael (Yvonne), Patrick (Linda), Cindy (Rob), and Tammy (Ted). She will hold a special place in the hearts of her 12 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. Pidge was predeceased by grandson Michael Robinson in 1997.
The Loftus family would like to thank the incredible staff at Shuswap Lake Hospital and Dr. Kevin Goldberg for their care and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Pidge’s name may be made to the Shuswap Lakes Hospital Foundation.
A “Celebration of Life” for Pidge is being planned for Saturday, April 18th, 2015 with details to follow.
