It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing in Salmon Arm Hospital, of Coralie Tolley, who was taken from us far too soon at the age of 60, after a courageous battle against cancer. Coralie was pre-deceased in 2011 by her mother, Beatrice Cameron, in 2003 by her brother Byam Jr.(Margaret) and in 1996 by her father Byam Cameron Sr. She has left behind her son Matt Tolley, his wife Kirsten and their son Cameron of Penticton, and her daughter Jenna Roberts, also of Penticton, as well as her partner, Larry Fitzpatrick of Salmon Arm who steadfastly led the bedside vigil during her last weeks and was a source of great comfort. She is also survived by her sister Bonnie (Paul) from Gibsons and her brother Alan (Melissa) from Abbotsford. Other family members who mourn her include: nieces Leigh-Anne Cameron (Rigo) of Ladner, Alison Primerano (Mike) of Vancouver, Crystal Cameron of Vancouver as well as Bella and Sasha Cameron of Abbotsford; nephews Victor Cameron (Heather) from Vancouver and Mackenzie Cameron of Abbotsford, and grand-niece Emily Primerano and grand-nephew Vin Primerano of Vancouver; as well as her loving cousins. Born and raised in Calgary, Coralie spent her adolescence in Port Coquitlam. Coralie began a career in banking in Vancouver before embarking on her Salmon Arm adventure where she thrived as a financial consultant with Edward Jones. Coralie became a noted and well-respected businesswoman in Salmon Arm and organized many charitable events in her community. Coralie loved to travel, and over the last few years she visited several exotic places. Coralie was kind, generous, passionate and loving. She adored her family, her friends, her many cats and the music of U2. Coralie’s special bond with her cats was demonstrated when her cat fizzy came to be with her in the hospital, and stayed with her until the end. In lieu of flowers, we would encourage those wishing to make a contribution, to contribute to the Salmon Arm SPCA, 5850 Auto Road SE
Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 2X2, in honour of the special bond that Coralie had with her animals and community. A celebration of her life will take place at 2:30 pm on Saturday, October 14 at Predator Ridge, and all her knew her are welcome.
