GANDERTON, Florence Janet (Allen)

Florence Janet Ganderton (Allen)

Florence (Flo), passed away peacefully 18 August 2020 at Lady Minto Hospital on Salt  Spring Island.

Our beautiful mother was a peaceful and gentle soul who is much loved and will be missed by her devoted and loving husband James of 65 years, three children; Diana (Waterson), Mark and Joni (Friedman), their partners Brent, Boni and Steven, and four grandchildren; Ellery, Fraser, Hunter and Patience.

Flo was a wonderful, dedicated grandmother, mother and wife. Retired in Salt Spring, British Columbia,  Flo and Jim were to celebrate  65 years together this week.

The eldest of five children, her brother Charlie is predeceased. Flo attended the University of Calgary, RN (Nursing) before raising her lovely family and becoming a career diplomat with her husband James. Flo was happiest when many of her children were together.

Flo was a kind person who touched the lives of many friends, colleagues, and family. She will be missed.

A celebration of life may be arranged at a later date.

The family thanks Dr. Reznick and the wonderful staff at Lady Minto Hospital Extended Care facility for their compassionate care of Florence during her short stay and Heritage Place for continued care.

A private family service is planned. In lieu of flowers, the family would like to ask that a donation be made to the Alzheimer’s Society in her name.
