KING, Stephena

Stevie passed away peacefully into the arms of our Lord in the early hours of September 3, 2017 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital with family at her side.
Born in Manville, Alberta on April 26, 1935, Stevie was raised as a farm girl until she met the love of her life, Paul, in 1953. They were married on May 12, 1955 and over the next several years made their home in Boston Bar and Williams Lake before moving to Armstrong in 1959 where they raised their family.

Family was everything to Mom and she was so proud of her 7 children. Family Sunday dinners, holidays and get togethers at the lake were always exciting and greatly anticipated as Mom was the world’s best cook! Mom never forgot a birthday. Always smiling, kind and gracious, Mom’s heart was open to all.
For Mom, volunteering was a way of life. She volunteered with Meals on Wheels for 20 years, Cancer Society, choir for Senior Home visits, Legion, and Church catering. Mom was a voracious reader, enjoyed music, bowling, cooking, canning, bingo, and travelling with her favorite being the Alaska Cruise. Mom entered canning and baking in the IPE and won many ribbons over the years.

Stevie is survived by Paul, her loving husband of 62 years and children: Theresa, Jim, Dave (Jan), Pete (Nadine), Judy (Dan) Foley, Helen (Doug) Galuska, and Allan (Heather); brother Bill of Merrit; 20 grandchildren and so far… 5 great-grandchildren. Stevie is predeceased by granddaughter Emma, brother Joe Babij, and parents Nick and Rosie.

Most important to Stevie was her Catholic faith. Please join the King family in honouring this truly wonderful woman on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Armstrong at 11:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice, volunteer or take the time to have a happy conversation with someone.Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca.
