In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. Em passed away May 2 at her home in Gold River after suffering the ravages of cancer for over 7 years.
She faced her illness with dignity and grace and was brave right up to the end of her life. Her concern was about how her illness was impacting others and not herself, which is an indication of who she was. She had strength and a positive attitude that flow from her all the time.
Em was incredibly strong, resilient, and courageous and was a trusted, loyal friend. All are heartened to know that the pain and suffering she endured in her life is over and she now rests in peace.
Em leaves behind and is deeply missed by her husband Ken, daughter Bonnie Forrester (Tom), her 2 grandchildren, as well as sisters, nieces, and nephews.
She was predeceased by her daughter Karen Stevenson (Travis), sisters and brother.
It is with great gratitude we thank Dr. Durante, Enad O'Hara and all the staff at the Gold River Medical Clinic where she received great care.
