MCCALLUM, FLORENCE WFeb. 24, 1916 – May 20, 2013

at the age of 97 years

Celebration of life:  Wednesday, June 5th at 1:00 pm at her home 1421 Silver Sands Road in Sicamous.

It is with heartfelt sadness the family announces the passing of “Flo”. She went quietly and peacefully in her sleep at home in Sicamous, BC. Flo was born on February 24, 1916 in Langford, Manitoba. Predeceased a year ago by her loving husband “Jack” of 76 years, parents; John and Mary Hall, brother Stan, sister Patricia, and daughter-in-law Eleanor. Left to grieve are her niece: Arley (Jim), son: Jack Jr, grandchildren: Don (Jane), Yvonne (Geoff), Alannah (Old Hands), Darlene (Cliff), Charlene (Mike), six great-grandchildren and many wonderful neighbors and friends.
Flo gew up in Neepawa, Manitoba where she met ‘Jack’. Their love story began and they were married on June 5, 1937. A year later young ‘Jack Jr.’ was born. They made their home in Lethbridge, Alberta for a few years then moved to northern BC and the Yukon. They spent many years together in the north where she enjoyed camping, gardening, cooking and canning. She was very committed to her family and loved to spoil her grand-children with her wonderful baking and canned goods. In the early 70’s they sold the motel in Dease Lake and moved to the Shuswap where they purchased the little house on Silver Sands Road in Sicamous. There they retired and enjoyed the company of many wonderful neighbors and friends. She was quite active, often going for long walks with her beloved dogs; Prince and Buttons. She enjoyed her flowers and vases and recently visited the Bouchart Gardens in Victoria with family and friends.

A loving wife, mother and grand-mother who has left us but will remain in the hearts of all who knew her, and loved her.

A special thank you to all the home-support workers for all the wonderful care and especially to her grand-daughter “Charlene” who cared for her and brought so much love and spirit into her life over the past several years.
