Byrena Mary Thomson

Donald Arthur Thomson


January 19, 1919 – October 2, 2013


Byrena’s life has been an exceptional one – of faith, creativity, and life-long

learning.  She has left us an incomparable spiritual heritage, and has always been an example of integrity, generosity, gratitude, cheerfulness

and encouragement to others.

Pre-deceased by her husband Jim, in 2011, Byrena personified the Proverbs 31 woman, who, to her family and many friends, was indeed “more precious than rubies”.

She will be greatly missed by so many, especially her son, Don, daughter Peggy Mayers, her grandchildren Meghan and James, and her very dear friend Hazel Keeping.

There will be no funeral, at Byrena’s request.

“Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all”.

“A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised”.
