Wilma Peltier

Wilma Peltier of Kamloops passed away on Sunday, March 4, 2018 at 71 years of age.

Wilma was born in Calgary on July 12, 1946. She graduated from Calgary General Hospital Nursing School in 1967 and married her sweetheart the same year. Wilma and Dick moved to Kamloops in 1971 and Wilma started working at Ponderosa almost from her first day here. She retired in 2008 and they spent their retirement as avid travellers. She spent countless hours in her flower garden and enjoyed playing bridge and going to exercise classes with her friends.

Wilma had a special bond with her grandson and granddaughter.

She was dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew her.

The family would like to offer a special thanks to Dr. D. Williamson in emergency and the special nurses on 3 West. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made in Wilma’s memory to the Canadian Cancer Society, 214 – 141 Victoria Street,, Kamloops, BC V2C 1Z5.

    I met Wilma many years ago when my Mom came into Ponderosa Lodge. It was a hard time for me and my Mom, but Wilma was always kind and helpful to Mom and I. She had a wonderful sense of humour that always made me laugh.

    I am so very sorry for your loss Dick. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    To Wilma’s family, words cannot describe how heavy my heart is to hear of Wilma’s passing. We worked together and went on a vacation to Caicos Islands in 1993 together with your Mum and Dad. It was different to say the least. She will be missed by all who worked with her and me especially. My heart goes out to the family. Sincerely Eleanor Beaton

    I met Wilma back in 2001 when she took me into her home and family as a foreign homestay student. One of the sweetest woman I have ever met. Still hoped to go visit Canada someday to see her again. Will be deeply missed.
