Jan. 21, 1926 – Apr. 1, 2014
Born in Salford, England, the only child of Harry and Irene Parrish, Irene served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service during the second world war as a signals operator. Whilst stationed at Crownhill, Plymouth, she met Desmond, her husband of 45 years. They settled in Plymouth where they raised their 2 children. After Desmond’s death, she moved to Canada and for the last 20 years made Sooke her home, where she was often seen walking her dog.
She is predeceased by son David and will be sadly missed by daughter Linda, son-in-law Ivor and grandsons Colin, Keith & Trevor (Canada) and daughter-in-law Christine and grandchildren Mark and Jennifer (England).
A celebration of her life service will take place at 2pm, Monday, April 14th at Christian Life Assembly Church, 6851 West Coast Road and gathering afterwards at her home, 6909 Larkspur Road. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to SPCA or charity of your choice. Many thanks to all the friends who helped her enjoy her life in Sooke.
