SYMMES, Gladys. (nee Corder, Moller)

September 4, 1922 – May 6, 2011

Born Crescent Hill, Saskatchewan, passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock. Predeceased by her husbands Jay Corder in 1972 and Bob Symmes in 1984; daughter Carolyn 1953; grandson Ross; sister Marian, and step- daughter Dianne.

Gladys lived life fully and with enthusiasm. Her interests were varied; she travelled the world, enjoy- ed golf, curling and lawn bowling, knitting and bridge, reading and cross- words, and her Church played a very important role in her life. A real passion she shared enthusiastically with her kids and grandkids was her love of hockey. She never lost her positive attitude and happy smile. “Mimi” will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.
