Alma Doris Hoy

Passed away peacefully

in her sleep September

1st, 2007 at the age of


Alma was born in Essex

England and moved to

Canada in 1957. She

was quick to embrace her

new country and wore

her Canadian colours

proudly, showing the flag

wherever she traveled.

Alma never quit learning,

and spent time the past

few years upgrading

her skills at Continuing

Education, so that her

computer was more than

a dust collector. She

was always eager to give

back to the communities

she lived in. Her and

her husband Stu were

instrumental in building

the Sun Katchers RV

Park in Keremeos, where

they lived for the last 8

years. During that time,

Alma helped with many

worthwhile community

projects in Keremeos,

and her most proud

achievement was the

completion of the Kyalami

Place, the Assisted Living

Centre in Keremeos and

starting up the Cancer

Support Group. Alma

was determined to fi ght

the battle as long as

possible, and did so with

grace and courage.

Alma is survived by her

loving husband Stuart,

their children Brenda

(Phil), Richard (Donna),

Laura (Lyle), Leslie (Yuki),

Doug (Carol) and Donna,

her grandchildren Danielle

(Clint), Dalyce (Wayde),

Leon and Lemiel, and her

great grandson Jordan,

and her sisters Brenda

Shaless (Peter) and

Mavis Powell.

She spent the last two

months of her life at

extend our thanks and

gratitude to the staff for
