Denise passed away peacefully at Columbia View Lodge on November 19, 2014 at the age of 90.
Denise was the only child to Mary Louise and Robert Stewart. Born in Kenora, Ontario in the mid ‘20s Denise travelled the tracks with her father who worked with CP Rail until they landed in the Kootenays in the late ‘30s. Denise completed her high school education in Nelson. She found schooling again in the secretarial field and landed a job with CM&S at the time; now known better as Teck. She enjoyed a quiet, simple life. Denise had a real soft spot for animals and during her life made a home to many stray cats.
Denise is survived by her first cousin Joy Sales and extended family of Ontario and leaves behind dear friends Keith and Gale Smyth and family of Trail.
At her request there will be no funeral service. Cremation has taken place. Jordan Wren of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made in Denise’s name to the Trail SPCA at 7700 3B Hwy, Trail, BC, V1R 4X2 or online at www.spca.bc.ca
