It is with great sorrow and sadness that the family of Nancy Wieler mourn her passing on Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 58 years of age.
Nancy grew up in the Trail area and moved to Cranbrook in 1990. Her career was entrepreneurial and business management based with experience in the car rental, travel, heavy duty equipment and commercial real estate industries. Her attention to detail, drive and business sense contributed to her success. Nancy was forced into an early retirement due to an ongoing battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis, but she remained active with continuation of some business that she truly enjoyed. Determination and strong will enabled Nancy to fulfil her passion and artistic side during retirement, which included painting, quilting and many other various crafts that showed her true ability and talent. Nancy loved making family and friends comfortable with memorable surroundings and home cooked meals when visiting her places in Cranbrook and on Kootenay Lake. Her best days were always the ones when she was surrounded by those she loved.
Nancy is survived by her children Blake Knull, Lee (Cayley) Knull and Lisa (Adrian) Jones; her grandchildren Jordan, Sienna, Cameron, Isaac and Ashton; her brother Nino (Lorry) Fabbro and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. Nancy was predeceased by her husband Stan Wieler in 2012, daughter Stacey Wieler in 2007, mother Dorina Fabbro in 2005 and sister Rosanna Fabbro in 2005. Nancy also leaves behind many wonderful friends including Darrell Langille, who she has known since high school and more recently formed a strong relationship and bond with.
A memorial gathering and celebration of Nancy’s life for family and close friends will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2015 anytime between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm at McPherson Funeral Home in Cranbrook (2200 – 2nd Street South).
