COOK, Virve (nee Vare)- She was born in Storebro, Sweden on Nov. 26, 1945 and it is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing on December 13 of a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
Virve was predeceased by 19 month old son, Mikhel. She is survived by her husband of 46 years, George; loving sons Priidik (Misha) and Jordi (Emily); grandchildren Indiana and Portia; sister Val (Frank), as well as countless nieces, nephews and close friends. Virve was dedicated to her family who meant the world to her.
She was always willing and able to help others due to her selfless nature.
Her hands allowed her to create items of love for family and others as Virve was a gifted Knitter, Crochet and avid Seamstress. Virve was a genuine spirit and even in her death she was still giving as her organ donations have now blessed and changed the lives of others. She will forever be remembered and cherished for her love of life, her unrivalled desserts and natural beauty, inside and out. A Service to Celebrate her life will be held at 11:00am on Saturday January 25, 2014 at St. Peter Estonian Lutheran Church 6520 Oak St., Vancouver BC. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Virve may be made to the BC Children’s Hospital in the name of her beloved child with whom she is reunited; Mikhel Cook. You are invited to leave a fond memory or message of condolence at the family’s on – line guest book at: www.myalternatives.ca
