STARKEY, Bernice

(nee Lewichew)

Aug. 7, 1930 ~ Sept. 24, 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, nana and great-nana. Bernice passed away peacefully with family at her side at Tabor Home on September 24, 2014. She is predeceased by her loving husband Bruce Starkey of almost 56 years and her sister Pauline. She will be lovingly remembered by her 3 children Colleen (Don), Heather (Paul), and Sydney (Janet), 9 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Prior to her long battle with Alzheimer's, Bernice enjoyed travelling and camping. She was a spirited fashion diva who lit up the dance floor at social events with her many close friends. Bernice and her husband Bruce shared quiet moments together each day with their favorite past time… "Happy hour." As Bernice was never considered a culinary expert, many wonderful family events were celebrated with KFC. The family of Bernice wish to thank the staff at Tabor Home for their compassionate care of "Mom" over the many years. At Mom's request there will be no service.
