Mar 26, 1935 – Jul 29, 2010
Longtime Blue River resident Lolly Fehr passed away on July 29, 2010 at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital, Clearwater, BC, after a lengthy and brave struggle with cancer. She was 75 years of age. Born Olive Jane Turrett in Heatherton, Newfoundland on March 26, 1935, Lolly was known as Linda, but mostly as Lolly to her family and friends. She will be dearly missed by her husband of 51 years, Edwin, by her children Albert (Susan), Stephen (Donna), Corby-Ann, and David (Patty), by her grandchildren, Jamie, Julien and Zoey, and by her many, many friends.
Lolly loved to help people; most often she cared for people by preparing delicious meals for them. She cooked for many charities, including the Royal Canadian Legion Branch in Blue River, and for the ball teams in Blue River. She cared for her family and prepared wonderful meals for them. But she also opened her home to those who needed a home-cooked meal. For example, neighbours and friends who were alone at Christmas would find wonderful meals and a warm welcome at Lolly and Ed’s place. In 1982, Lolly realized a dream when she opened a restaurant in Blue River called “Lolly’s Place.” For over 15 years, Lolly’s Place was a very popular place for truckers, CN Rail crews, and the locals. It was even featured in a Mike McCardell story on Global TV and on Wayne Rostad’s CBC television series called “On the Road Again.”
A Memorial Service to remember the life of Lolly Fehr will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 7, 2010 in the Lodge at Mike Wiegele’s Ski Company, in Blue River, BC. The family would appreciate donations in memory of Lolly Fehr to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, BC & Yukon Division, 180 – 546 St. Paul Street, Kamloops, BC, V2C 5T1, or to the Canadian Cancer Society, Kamloops Branch, 111-450 Lansdowne Street, Kamloops, BC, V2C 1Y3.Print This Obituary & Condolences
