Christine Alvina Nordby passed away on June 17, 2023 at Hillside Village in Salmon Arm, B.C. at the age of 82. Preceded in death by her husband Dennis Bruce, and her daughter, Denise Ruth. Her love lives on in her two daughters Faith Christine Nordby, Jennifer Joan Williams, and her son, Brett Russell Nordby. Her grandchildren Kurt, Bradley, Jessica, Joel, Christopher, and Jefferey, and in her great-grandchildren Torval, Ripley, Quinn, Jaxon, and Owen.
Christine was born and raised in Vancouver B.C., in Lynn Valley, where she was once crowned Queen of Lynn Valley in 1953. Christine had a deep love for the Blue Jays, highland dancing, and dogs. She was always smiling, sociable, and had a razor sharp wit. She was an exceptional cook and baker. Her family, whom she cared deeply for, gave high praise to her baked cinnamon buns, donuts, and bread.
The family would like to extend appreciation to the staff at Pioneer Lodge in Salmon Arm for all the love, care and attention they extended to her during her time there. Christine spoke very highly of the kitchen staff especially.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
There will be no service, as per Christine’s request.
