Almavera Mosher, 102

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Vera on August 16, 2004 at Deer Lodge Center at 102 years young.
Vera was predeceased by her parents Ezekiel ‘Whitney’ and Hanna Mosher, brothers Arnold, John, Emerson, Wilson ‘Red’, Floyd (Judy) and sisters Mary (Art) Thompson and Blanche (Auril) Decaire and Holly (Scott) Brooker. Also a great great Aunt to Joshua and Jaden Hutchison. She will be remembered and sadly missed by all, including niece Marilyn Russel, nephew Joe Mosher, staff and residents of Deer Lodge and many friends and neighbours.
Vera was the first of eight children, born May 25, 1902 in the Pattulo area six miles north of Stratton, Ontario. She lived there with her family working on the homestead often helping neighbours by babysitting their children. She worked in Winnipeg, Manitoba in a domestic capacity for many years before eventually returning to live with her family in Stratton.
In the 1930’s she was very active in the Bethany Church and was known to collect autographs of parishioners and missionaries whom she attended church with. Vera's favorite pastimes were making crab apple jelly and gardening.
We will miss Vera’s charm, spirit, and gentle tickles. Special thank you to the staff at Deer Lodge and visiting companion Terry, also to pallbearers Dennis Brown, Robin McQuaker, George Rempel, Jamie Hutchison, Joe Mosher, and Gary Advent.
A memorial service was held Friday, August 20 at 2 p.m. at Deer Lodge Center, visitation was held Saturday, August 21 between 9-10 am. at Thomson Funeral Chapel, 669 Broadway. Funeral service was held Monday, August 23 at Stratton United Church at 10 a.m. with a reception following.
