Nancy Orr

July 7, 1922 - April 1, 2014

Tribute

Our beloved Mom and Granny, Nancy Orr, passed away peacefully with her daughters at her side at Sunnybank Centre, Oliver, B.C.

She was born to Meta and Trevor Williams in Masset, B.C.

Nancy was predeceased by her brother, John, husband Len, son –in-law Michael, and grandson, Russell.

Granny will be lovingly remembered and missed.

Nancy is survived by her sister, Betty, as well as her daughters, Marilyn (Lou), Peggy (Ken), Betty Jo, Kathy (Arnie),  Maureen (Gord), and her grandchildren David (Noreen), Rob (Kim), Trevor (Sylvia), Michelle (John), Meta, Ian, Jessica, Chris, Jeff, Kirsten, Lindsay, Jennifer, Kayla, Brent, and many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and their families.

Family came first for Nancy and she enjoyed being actively involved in all of their lives.  She was a keen life-long learner and attended Kwantlen College (journalism) and Simon Fraser University (social sciences) when she was in her sixties.

Nancy was active in her church, a long time school trustee in Terrace, with a term as Chair.  A 57 year member of the Order of the Eastern Star serving as Worthy Matron and a Grand Representative for the Thornhill Chapter # 85.  As well, Nancy was active in many auxiliaries, including meals on wheels and cancer dressing.

Nancy was always willing to give a hand to help those in need.

Nancy was honored for her community involvement by having a street named after her in Terrace (Orr Place).

The School District recognized Nancy’s tireless work in establishing the REM Lee Theatre by awarding her two life-long seats in her name at the REM Lee Theatre in Terrace.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 19, 2014, 2pm, at St. Edward’s Anglican Church, Oliver B.C.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be gratefully accepted by the Sunnybank Auxiliary (Gardens) Sunnybank Centre 6553 Park Drive, Oliver B.C. V0H 1T4, or Similkameen Chapter #78 Order of the Eastern Star (648 Keremeos By-Pass Rd., Keremeos B.C. V0X 1N1)

I have many fond memories of the Orr family during all those years in Terrace. Nancy especially made all of us “kids” feel right at home whenever we stopped in, often unexpected! She was truly a very special person. My thoughts are with Betty Jo, Kathy, Maureen, Marilyn & Peggy.
