Adeline (Addy) Mary Fraser, beloved wife of Thomas (Tom) Fraser (they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary Feb. 22, 2018), beloved mother of Diane Sanford, Robert Fraser, Ronald Fraser and Dave Fraser, beloved mother-in-law of Donald Sanford, Francis Fraser, Sherry Fraser, and Trisha Fraser; beloved grandmother of Shawna Gip, Scott Fraser, Jeff Fraser, Brian Fraser, Terry Fraser and Quinn Fraser; beloved great-grandmother of Alexander Fraser and Rylan Fraser, and sister to her surviving brother, Len Hammel, passed away quietly in the early morning of April 10, 2018 after having a massive stroke on April 2, 2018.
Over the years, Adeline and Tom took their children on weekends to two cabins they had on the shores of mountain lakes. After Tom retired, the two of them spent 16 winters in Yuma, Arizona where they got involved in the RV park/sports events, made many friends and thoroughly enjoyed their time in the sunshine.
Due to the onset of dementia, Adeline, along with Tom, moved into the Hamlets at Westsyde Care Facility for 3 years, then into the Active Care Senior Services for 4 months and resided the last two years in the Blueberry unit at the Overlander Care Home in Kamloops, BC. Adeline was loved by the caring staff and she loved them all in return. The care the staff gave Adeline was exemplary but that care/love went over the top during her fight against the stroke. Her family greatly appreciates the care and comfort Adeline received from the staff in the Blueberry wing of the Overlander. Thank you all so very much.
Adeline had always been very active in her life. She played Senior B softball in her younger years, loved golfing, curling, bowling, and walking. She started golfing at the Smithers Golf Course and continued on at the Chase Golf Course when she and Tom moved to Chase in 2003. Adeline probably has a tee time already set up with her sister-in-law, Beverly Fraser, who passed before her. Along with her own sports, Adeline attended, and supported as many of her family’s sports activities as she could. Up until the stroke, Adeline continued to be active at the Overlander, in sport activities, cultural events, mini road trips, and any function that was set up for the residents to enjoy.
As much as we miss our wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, we are so grateful that Adeline had a wonderful life and that she knew she was loved so much by all of us.
May she rest in peace.
