November 28, 1929 – September 13, 2020
Born November 28 1929 in Comox BC, Rachel passed away on September 13, 2020, at her home, here in the Valley.
Mom is survived by her sons Doug (Jennifer), Charlie (Fonda) and Robbie (Nena) as well as nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Bob, her parents Treffrey and Rachel Corfield and her siblings Robert, Sheelagh and George.
Mom devoted her life to Dad and her family, living in a succession of towns on the BC coast before moving to the Philippines for a twenty-year stretch. She and Dad then spent their retirement following the sun, spending winters on the golf course in Mazatlan and summers in Comox. Mom continued the tradition for many years after Dad passed in 1997, before finally remaining in the Valley year-round tending her flowers with her long-time housekeeper and friend Daday. In addition to visiting with family and friends, mom also enjoyed conversing electronically with her grandchildren and receiving pictures of their many adventures. She never missed calling or emailing on birthdays and anniversaries.
Mom, you will be missed by all who knew you, but we take comfort in knowing you have finally been reunited with the love of your life.
