It is with sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear Fay Collier at the age of 69.

Fay worked in retail in her earlier years in England. When we moved to Canada she worked in retail and then spent many years bookkeeping at Nasmyth, Morrow and Goody (Bogusz) law office.

Fay enjoyed golfing and camping in her earlier years and always enjoyed reading, knitting and sunbathing at their house on the lake in Nelson. Nana’s greatest joy was her grandchildren.
