SPECHT, Sheron Esther (nee Cooper)

June 30, 1939 to June 3, 2015

On June 3, 2015 just short of her 76th birthday, Sheron Esther Specht was absent the body and present with her Lord and Saviour after a daunting 11 year contest with ovarian cancer. Survived by her loving husband Don, the light of her life daughter Alexa and son-in-law Alan Easton and precious granddaughters, Kaitlyn and Nicola, she was predeceased by her beloved son, Tyson, brother, William, father, Philip Cooper and mother, Esther Cooper. Residents of West Vancouver for 35 years, she and Don moved to the South Surrey area in 2013. Prior to winding up Don’s law practice in 2009, Sheron had been his paralegal, mortgage business partner and office manager for more than 40 years. Born in Penticton, Sheron moved to the Coast when she was 19 to become a legal secretary. She and Don were married in 1962. A gentle women of integrity, Sheron was quietly diligent in all she undertook, a loving wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker, well loved and respected by family and friends. Though often suffering greatly from her illness, she unfailingly obeyed the fifth commandment in honouring her mother by tenderly caring for her to near the end of her 97th year. She attended North Vancouver’s St. Andrews Presbyterian until 2013 when she and Don joined White Rock Lutheran, a small but big-hearted congregation that enjoys a conservative fellowship association with St. John’s Presbyterian congregation. Sheron’s loving, calming presence will be long be missed in the evening and the morning, in troublous and in happy times and at the worship hours. She had a little girl’s delighted anticipation of Christmas, when she could happily plan gifting and family gatherings. Her greatest, latest joy was knowing that she was leaving her only daughter in the loving care of Linda Bordignon, who so many years ago had graciously given Alexa into our care in trust. If you wish to honour Sheron’s memory, you could do no better than make a gift to Union Gospel Mission, her favourite charity. Sheron’s family wishes to give heartfelt thanks to all the members of

the Peace Arch Hospital Hospice volunteers, nurses and care staff who provided her with such gentle and compassionate care during all the two month of her last days. A celebration of life will be held on Thursday, June 11th, 2015 at the St. John’s Presbyterian Church 1480 George St., White Rock, B.C. at 11 am with lunch to follow the service.
