Effie M. Peirce (nee Wheatcroft)

With saddened hearts we would like to announce the passing of a good wife,

mother and grandmother.

She lived in Nanaimo many years before moving to Sidney, BC in 1976, with a final move to Salt Spring Island in 1986.

After a lengthy illness Effie passed away at the Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island. She leaves behind her loving husband Allan, 5 children,

11 grandchildren, and was starting to count the great-grand children’s arrivals.

Effie enjoyed knitting, traveling, drawing, reading, crosswords and playing scrabble. In her later years she started quilting, making gifts for her many grandchildren.

Effie also enjoyed and loved her many pets over the years.

Effie will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

No service at her request.
