Vera Payne

Vera passed away peacefully at 92 years of age on Tuesday February 18 at Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island.

She was predeceased by her husband Ron in 1998. She is survived by her son David and daughter-in-law Kathleen.

Vera and Ron had been long term residents of Salt Spring when she and Ron retired to the island in 1974. Vera had been a long time volunteer for over 25 years at the hospital Thrift Shop in Ganges. She was also an active member of St Marks and All Saints Anglican Church parishes.

A service is to be held at All Saints Anglican Church in Ganges on Friday, March 7 at 1:00pm. Vera has requested in lieu of flowers that donations be given to the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation, Ganges in her memory.

The family would like to extend its sincerest thanks and gratitude to all nurses, doctors and care aides at Lady Minto for the care and compassion given to my mother during her time of need.
