Fay Collier

November 23, 1942 - August 24, 2012


It is with sadness and sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear Fay Collier at the age of 69.

Fay was born in Dagenham, Essex, England on November 23, 1942. Fay was recently pre-deceased by her cherished husband and caregiver Dave Collier. Fay was also pre-deceased by her Father Charles and Daughter Sharon. She is survived by her Mother Irene, Brother Roy (Maureen), Sister Beryl (Kennedy), Brother Barry (Hazel), Daughters Frances, Marianne (Denis), Karen (Stuart) and Lesley. Grandchildren, Amanda (Matt), Alex (Isabel), Emma, Maxine, Joseph, Jeremy, Justine, Gabriel, Ashley and Adrian. Great Granddaughter Mya. Many dear Nieces, Nephews, Brother and Sister in Laws, Cousins, Aunts, Uncles and Friends.

Fay worked in retail in her earlier years in England. When we moved to Canada she worked in retail and then spent many years bookkeeping at Nasmyth, Morrow and Bogusz law office. Fay enjoyed golfing and camping in her earlier years and always enjoyed reading, knitting and sunbathing at their house on the lake in Nelson. Nana’s greatest joy was her grandchildren. She loved them all so much and never missed a birthday or Christmas. She was a very loving wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, and friend and we will all miss her very much.
