November 27, 1927 – December 18, 2015

With great sadness we announce the passing of Ines Johnson (nee DeCecco). Joining in Heaven her father Giulio, mother Germina (nee Del Cozzo), sister Lydia LePage, brother Bruno, and husband James Edward (1997). Left to mourn her passing are sons Ross (Flora) and Gary, and grandchildren Sarah and Adam.

Ines enjoyed childhood in Wycliffe BC, moving with family to Cranbrook where she attended high school and graduated from the St. Eugene Hospital School of Nursing (1949). She practiced nursing in Toronto, Bermuda and then in Vancouver at the General and St Paul’s Hospitals. She and Ed married in 1954 and raised their family in North Vancouver. Mom enjoyed watching sports, reading, keeping in touch with old friends, and crosswords but most of all she loved her grandchildren, cats, and gardens.

We thank the caring people at Lynn Valley Care Centre, her home during recent years.

At Ines’ request there will be no service and in lieu of flowers please donate to the Union Gospel Mission or Salvation Army. Messages to her family may be left at
