Predeceased by her father Giuseppe, mother Bertilla, and sister Elise West Nancy was the light in our lives, and her star will shine brightly in Heaven.
She always had a big smile for everyone and also had a quick wit with many one-line jokes that had everyone laughing. She loved her big Italian family and was especially fond of her loving nieces and nephews, she loved to dance, sing and make people laugh, even in her moments of discomfort and pain.
Nancy touched the hearts of many people throughout her life, she lived in the moment, and gave unconditional love to everyone she knew. She was involved for most of her life with Port Alberni Connections, Special Olympics bowling, and later in her life with North Shore Connexions. We are grateful to all of the people who have been so kind and loving to our beautiful Nancy, all the workers and caregivers she became so attached to. They were like family to her, she loved them all. Very special thanks to all the Barlynn House caregivers for their kindness and love, and to the dedicated nurses, Doctors, and therapists at LGH and LGH ICU, who all got to know and love Nancy throughout her hospital stay. We will never forget the hospital staff singing and dancing to Abba and The Beatles right along side her.
