Obituary

Kerttu Kyllikki McLaughlan (nee Ketola)

“Cookie”

Cookie was born January 5, 1927 in Grassy Greek, on the Saskatchewan prairies. She spent the majority of her life in Peachland where she raised a family. Cookie passed away peacefully on June 6, 2019 in Nelson, B.C. where she had moved in August as her last adventure. Survived by 3 of her children, John (Ruth), Jim (Bridgette), and Dawn (Blaine), as well as granddaughter Amanda. Pre deceased by husband Tom (2003), and daughter Sandra (2016).

Cookie was ever-curious about the mysteries of life, always up on current events and still as sharp as ever even at the age of 92. She enjoyed painting, gardening and reading in her younger years, and her favourite motto was “there is time for everything.”

At Cookie’s request, there will be no formal funeral service. A small celebration will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion in Peachland from 11:00 am until approximately 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 22nd. Her ashes will be buried in the Peachland Cemetery where she will join Tom and Sandra.
