HATHAWAY C.M. (Wendy)
1918 – 2013
On the 22nd of October 2013, Constance Mary Hathaway (known by everyone as “Wendy”), ascended with poise and dignity into heaven, carried in the arms of the angels to the home of our Lord. She was predeceased by her loving husband Cyril in 1991, her wonderful son John and by her beloved granddaughters Sherri and Melinda.
Left behind to grieve are her son David (Joanne), her daughters Ann (Ron) and Deb (Blair), her grandchildren David, Greg, Mike, Sarah, Trevor, Tyler, Shannon and Jeff, plus 10 great grandchildren.
Wendy was born in the East End of London, England where she toughed out the bombs of the German Blitz before coming to Canada in 1952 with barely two nickels to rub together. She and her husband worked very hard in order to build a better life for their children and themselves. They succeeded and the family prospered under Wendy’s watchful eye in their new Woodbridge, Ontario home. Soon some of the family began to wander to new locations, so she decided to move with her husband to BC in order to reunite their scattered family once more.
Wendy had a really wonderful sense of humor and could always pull out a story, usually about England and/or World War II, which had her guests rolling on the floor with laughter. She also played some good frames of bowling, lived in her own condo and even drove her Mercedes until she was 91 years old!
We will surely miss you our much loved Mum and we will always remember the great times we had together. No one else will ever take your place.
We love you, David, Ann & Deb.
Wendy was cremated and at her request a private family ceremony will be held in the Spring.
