Lois Ruth Wetmore
August 2, 1939 – July 24, 2017
It is with much sadness that we announce the death of Lois Ruth Wetmore, nee McLaughlin, from pancreatic cancer, on July 24, 2017, at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice in Kamloops.
Lois is survived by her husband John Wetmore, her daughter Heather and son-in-law Paul Frost, her grandsons Aidan and Rowan Frost, and her sister Frances Rideout. She was predeceased by her brother, Walter McLaughlin.
Lois was born in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, the third child of Benjamin McLaughlin and Gertrude Everett McLaughlin. She moved to Edmundston N.B. at a young age, where she graduated from high school and worked until she married John in 1963. John’s education and career took them to Fredericton, Campbellton and Newcastle NB and then on to the west coast. Upon moving to BC, they lived first in Duncan, and then in 1971 settled in Kamloops.
Lois was a wonderful and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She enjoyed walking and coffee mornings with friends, reading, gardening and a good shopping trip. She was known for her sense of humour and practical outlook on life. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
A celebration of her life will be held later this summer. Her family wishes to thank all hospice staff who cared so well for her during her time there. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish to do so, we would appreciate donations made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice, 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, B.C., V2E 2S9.Print This Obituary & Condolences
