Twila Sharon Unrau 1951 — 2020

Twila Sharon Unrau

Twila Sharon Unrau was born October 2, 1951 in Princeton, B.C. and passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 25, 2020, at her home in Kamloops, with her family by her side.

Twila was the second child to Joe and Helen Beer. With her Dad’s work, the family moved many times, to Lake Cowichan, Brittania Beach, and eventually, North Vancouver.

It is with great sadness that we announce Twila’s passing. She loved nature, swimming, gardening, arts and crafts, and had a strong will for life, and for family and friends. Twila had a special bond with her nephews and nieces, and our godson.

Twila was diagnosed with stage four Thyroid cancer in 2010. The past years were difficult for her, with the discomfort and pain. I’m certain her strong will and determination helped her through this difficult time. Twila’s belief in Spiritualism helped her to cross the rainbow bridge and be painless.

She is lovingly remembered by husband Ernie, daughter Cindy and grandson Milo, son James (Anna), our godson Michael, her brothers and sister, numerous nephews and nieces and friends.

She is greatly missed by all.

A special thank you to Carol and all the palliative care nurse that provided needed care to Twila at this time.

    When I sadly heard of Twila’s passing it was stressed that Twila was such and extraordinary person because of how kind and caring she was. And how people were drawn to her because of these qualities along with all her talents and skills. I never met Twila in person but heard her from Chuck and Lena Trebilcock many times.
    So I send my love and support to her family and students as they were surely miss her.

    Twila was my sister-in-law. I was never fortunate enough to have a sister, but she was the next best thing. She was such a loving and compassionate person, could never do enough for you and always welcomed everyone into her home. She will be missed so much by everyone. Twila will leave a huge empty place in our family, but we have so many wonderful memories of our times together.
    Ernie, find comfort in these memories and all the fun and laughter we shared over the years. We are all here for you and share in your loss. We all love you. Chuck, Lena & family.

    I’ve only just learned of Twila’s passing.
    I’m grateful to have known her when we were North Van teens and more recently on FB.
    She was always kind and always funny.
    My rather late condolences to her family.
    She crossed my mind so many times in the last month that I went looking on FB.
