On the evening of Thursday, January 8, 2015 Priscilla Joyce Jolie passed away peacefully at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 93 years.
Percy was a wonderful mother to her children. She was very devoted to them and her family was first and foremost. Mom always cared about others more than herself. She enjoyed her life to the fullest and one of her most favorite things to do was to play bridge. She was a member of the Bridge Club in Kimberley and played every week. Percy and Alf were long-time residents of Kimberley and truly loved living there. Alf and Percy loved the outdoors and camping was another one of their many enjoyable times together. Many good times were spent with family and friends around the campfire. She will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. A special thank you to Mifi Volard and her family for their ongoing care and support in this difficult time.
Percy leaves to mourn her passing her four sons; Terry, Jack, Jim and Lloyd and by many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also leaves behind her 1 brother and 3 sisters as well as many other extended family members. She was predeceased by her husband Alfred in 1996 and her two sons, Keith and Barry.
A Celebration of Percy’s life will be held at a later date. A special thank you to the doctors and staff and the Kootenay Regional Hospital for the amazing care they provided for Percy in her final days.
