JUTRAS, Elizabeth “Libby”
With great sadness, our family is announcing the death of Libby.
Libby, was born November 15, 1940 in Toronto, Ontario. After a short but determined battle against cancer, Libby died peacefully with her family present on Thursday, May 20, 2021 at her home in Arbutus Ridge, BC.
Libby is survived by her husband Ray Kocher; her daughter Robin Herron and husband Trevor, grandchildren Jeremy, Micheal, and Melissa; her son Donald McClellan and wife Louisa, grandchildren August, Sawyer and Holden; Stepson Kevin Kocher; brother Robert Langford; and sister-in-law and good friend Claire Reynolds.
Of all the places Libby had lived, Saltspring Island was clearly her favourite. It was here she found a place for her artistic talents to flourish. Libby loved to teach, as well as, to learn from the many talented local artists.
Libby developed many friendships in the community, through her bridge club, book club, Mah Jongg club and the arts community.
At Libby’s request there will be no funeral.
In lieu of flowers, Libby asked that donations be made to a charity of your choice
