February 24, 1928 – November 3, 2019
It is with deep sadness we announce our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother Lois Gertrude Fraser passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family at the age of 91 years old.
Born February 24, 1928 in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, she passed away November 3, 2019 in Whitehorse, Yukon.
Lois loved living in the north and was an active member of the Whitehorse community where she resided for the better part of 48 years. Lois was a member of Beta Sigma Phi for over 70 years, joined the Royal Purple in 1989, and was an integral part of Girl Guides Canada throughout her lifetime. Lois loved her community, family and friends. Her door was always open for a visit, tea and a good laugh.
Lois was predeceased by her daughter Joan Anderson, her sister Joan, her father Alex, brother Colin, mother Cecila, and brother George.
She is survived by her daughter Vanessa (Geoff Grant), daughter Debra (Patrick Downey), son Colin Anderson; her 6 grandchildren Jason, Jennifer, Janice, Nichole, Michelle, and Robert; her 12 great grandchildren; Alicia, Jonathan, Isabella, Madeline, Gavin, Sophia, Preston, Nolan, Olivia, Calla, Elliette, and Audrey; and her 2 great-great granddaughters Juliana and Skyla.
In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Golden Age Society of Whitehorse.
It is with heartfelt gratitude we extend our appreciation to the incredible team of doctors; Dr S. Alton, Dr. D. Story, Dr S. Samuelson, Dr. D. Kanachowski. A big thank you to Sophie from Social Work, Jeanette from Occupational Therapy, and all her nurses especially Brie and Theresa. A special thank you to the entire Home Care team, especially Sol Ledine, for their exceptional care of Lois. We could not have fulfilled Lois’ wishes to be at home without this amazing team. Their time, commitment to her comfort, professionalism, support and compassion was extraordinary.
In honour of Lois’ memory there will be a tea and a celebration held at Hellaby Hall in the Anglican Church of Canada on Thursday, November 7, 2019 from 2-4 pm.
