It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Ida Beatrice Pedneault. Ida left us in the wee hours of the morning of August 28th, 2013. Ida was born (1918) and married on Saltspring Island before moving with Art and baby George, to the Shirley district outside of Sooke. Later the family moved into Sooke, where Ida and Art spent the rest of their married life. Ida was a long time member of the Shirley Womens’ Institute, and an avid supporter of the Sooke Fall Fair, winning many trophies. Ida passed away at home with family near as was her wish.
Ida leaves her sons George (Gladys) and Bill (Sandy), grand daughters Cheryl, Ann Marie, Dianne and Julie and great grandchildren Justine, Raelle, Bailey, Burney, Travis and Courtney.
The family would like to send a special thanks to Paulina, her companion and caregiver for the past 2 ½ years, Dr. Tracy Forsberg for duty above and beyond, the PRTeam, and our own special nurse Julie for all their help and care for “Grandma”.
A graveside ceremony was held on Tuesday, September 3rd at Sooke Cemetery , followed by a celebration of her life at the Prestige Hotel.
Flowers are declined, but donations to the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society would be gratefully received.
