Evelyn "Louise" King

January 30, 1940 - December 31, 2019

Obituary

It is with great love and sadness that we announce the loss of our wonderful mom Louise King (Momma) on Tuesday December 31st, 2019.  Louise passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home at Joseph Creek Care Village in Cranbrook, BC at 79 years of age.

Louise was born on January 30th, 1940 in Crawford Bay, BC.  She lived in Kimberley, BC most of her life and raised her six children.

Louise took on a challenge in 1977 to return to school to complete her grade 12 education.  She graduated with honours.  She was a long standing member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #67 and worked there for several decades as a bar manager. She worked her whole life always going the extra mile.

One of her yearly highlights was participating in the Remembrance Day ceremonies. She loved hearing the war veterans tell their life stories. She had a profound love of music that spanned her lifetime, from bagpipes, to accordions, to the Coal Miners and sing-alongs with her grandchildren.  She happily volunteered at the food bank for several years.

Christmas was always a magical time for our family. Louise always decorated above and beyond. We will all fondly remember her numerous crafts and homemade decorations. She would start to decorate shortly after Remembrance Day and they would stay up until the end of January.

Louise will be missed by all of those who knew her and were touched by her beautiful spirit. Her heart was full of compassion and kindness and she would take on the role of caregiver to any person in need.  Louise will be remembered by her many friends and relatives as a very cheerful person who went out of her way to make people happy.

Louise is survived by her children: Emalee/Evelyn (Gord), Tonya (John), David (Darlene), Lisa (Terry), Wade (Rhonda).  Grandchildren: Jade, Yvonne, Katherine, Haley, Randy, Jasmyn, Kevan, Alex, Eric and Brooke. Great-Grandchildren: Capreese, Tanner, Kwinn, Nate and Graeson. And her Sisters: Sylvia, Patricia and Norma.

Louise is predeceased by her Daughter: Heather, Granddaughter: Megan, Mother: Julia Alma King, Father: William King, Brothers: George, Robert, Melvin and Sisters: Beatrice, Roseanne and Lorraine.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life at the Kimberley Elks Club on January 25th, 2020 from 1:00pm-4:00pm.

We extend a gracious thank you to her doctors and Joseph Creek Care Village.  In lieu of flowers kindly donate to your local food bank.

Relation: Tonya is a dear friend of my whole family

My heart goes out to my dear friend Tonya and all her family with the passing of Miz Louise. Although I never had the honour or meeting her I got to know Miz Louise through my mother and sister and of course, through Tonya. May Miz Louise rest in peace and may Tonya and her family be comforted by the many beautiful memories they have of their beloved mother. Tonya and her family are always in our hearts and in our prayers.
