May 11, 1935 to March 9, 2010Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Nora Strookoff quietly passed away at the Kelowna Hospice House on March 9, 2010.God saw you getting tired


When relief was not to be,


So He closed His arms


Around you and whispered


“Come To Me”


Your smile is gone forever,


Your hands we cannot touch,


All we have is memories


Of the one we loved so much.


He took you to His garden


He thought that this was best.


God’s garden must be beautiful


He’s laid you there to rest.Nora is survived by her son, Terry Strookoff; daughter, Zaina McPherson and son-in-law, Bert McPherson; grandsons: Rob and Dave McPherson; sisters: Olga Woodford and Katie Goodrick; and brother-in-law, Rod Goodrick; nieces and nephews: Stefanie Goodrick, Toni Goodrick, LeRoy, Darcy and Milo Cota, Renee Schiller, Harry Tournemille; and all their families. Relatives and friends are invited to share their thoughts and memories at a celebration of Nora’s life on Saturday, April 3, 2010, at 2 p.m., at Springfield Funeral Home Family Centre, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.  Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com.
