Ruby Holland (Stocker)

July 17, 1942 - March 1, 2016

Tribute

Our very dearest and very much loved Ruby slipped peacefully away in the arms of her husband Peter on the first day of March, 2016 after a long and arduous fight with Cancer.

She leaves behind daughters Jacqueline and Jennifer and son James as well as six grandchildren. She will be remembered for her participation in the Arrow Lakes Choir and her story-telling workshops at the Nakusp schools and also for her directorship of the very successful Nakusp Pioneer Pageant at the Bonington Arts theatre.

Ruby lived most of her teenage years in the picturesque village of Weobley in rural Herefordshire, England and was the second eldest daughter of Elizabeth and Joseph Stocker. She leaves behind in England her sisters Doreen, Margaret, Gillian, Linda and her brothers Tommy, Edgar, Douglas and Roy. There is also her much loved 94 year old Auntie Dill.

She travelled extensively in Canada with her husband and family and eventually made the village of Nakusp in British Columbia her home. She took particular pride in her flower gardens and her magnificent view of mountains, lake and forest. She will be remembered for her many English Style garden tea parties for her friends and neighbours.

Relation: Former neighbour

I was saddened to learn of Mrs. Holland’s recent passing and wish to offer my condolences to the entire Holland family.

For everything that cannot be adequately expressed in words, though the heart may mourn for what has been lost, the spirit rejoices for everything that remains. May your memories of better times and happier days offer comfort, strength and hope.

To paraphrase the poet: “Unable are the loved to die, for love shared is the path to immortality.”

From: T.R. Dunstan
Relation: Former neighbour

This morning I’ve learned Mr. Holland passed away (on November 6), and I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathies to the whole Holland family; Jackie, Jennifer and Jim and all their children – I can’t imagine how difficult this year has been for you all, I’m so sorry for your loss.
