Frances Zacharias

Frances Willow ZACHARIAS

July 11, 1917 – June 10, 2012

Billie left us gently in her sleep, predeceased in 2004 by Norman, her beloved husband of 50+ years.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Billie and Norm moved to Newton to raise their own family, and eventually moved to Salt Spring Island in 1979 where they built their last home together and enjoyed their golden years at the waters edge. Billie loved the water and enjoyed swimming, sailing and beachcombing as well as golf, travel and bridge, and was an active member in the community and her church.

She is lovingly remembered by her daughters Shirley and Jillian; her grandchildren Allison, Lauren, Zach; her great granddaughter Lila Kate; and her many nieces and nephews.

Her family thanks all of her caregivers, nurses, volunteers and friends who provided such wonderful care and support both during her stay at Greenwoods and following Norm’s death. They remember Billie fondly as a special lady with a fighting spirit and unfailing sense of humour.

A farewell gathering will be held Sunday, July 8th, 4:30pm at the Salt Spring Island Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Greenwoods Eldercare Society would be gratefully received: 133 Blain Road, Salt Spring Island BC V8K 1Z9.
