It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Wilma “Willie” Endean on November 19, 2022 at the age of 80. She passed away peacefully at Royal Inland Hospital with her daughter and son-in-law by her side.
Willie is survived by her daughter Lynn (Randy) Sunderman, grandchildren Josh and Mary, sisters Lorraine and Katie, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her parents Bill and Edith Davidson, husband Cork, and son Randy.
Willie was born on February 25, 1942 at RIH in Kamloops. She grew up in Knutsford and enjoyed participating in the 4H beef club, and going to community dances and picnics. In 1957 she met the love of her life, Cork, and they were married in 1959. They raised their family in Kamloops before moving back to Knutsford in 1988. One of Willie’s very first jobs was cooking at the Deleeuw Ranch as a teenager, and she continued as an institutional cook throughout her career before she retired in 1990. She loved to try new things, and upon retirement, she learned how to swim, do tai chi, how to line dance, and she joined the senior slow pitch league and Knutsford Stitch & Bitch. Willie loved the great outdoors and was always game to go camping, hiking, bike riding, and kayaking, especially with her grandkids. In 2017 she started volunteering at the United Church Thrift Store and enjoyed the new friendships she made there.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Knutsford Hall on Highway 5A on December 4, 2022 at 11am with refreshments to follow.
Willie’s family would like to thank all the staff on 5North at RIH for their excellent care. And a special thank you to Jackie Pelton and Dr. Stinson for going above and beyond.
