In Loving Memory ~

On February 18, 2024, the eccentric and witty Samara Carrier, who was an artist-in-residence at the Château Lake Louise for over 45 years, went home to meet her Heavenly Father, at the age of 88.

She will be deeply missed by her surviving family: her daughter, Kory Carrier (Rod Grundy); her granddaughter Helena LaPointe; and her great-grandchildren Katelynn and Matthew Thompson.

In heaven, she has a host of family waiting for her, including both her husbands, George (Blackie) Peeler & Joseph Carrier; her siblings Pat, Raymond, and Rayana; and her parents Helen & James McKelvie.

A Funeral Service was held on Tuesday, February 27, 2024, at 11:00 am (PST), at the Kelowna Christian Center: 905 Badke Road, Kelowna, BC. If you are unable to attend in person, please join the family online by Livestream at the time of the service (see below).

Samara will be laid to rest in the Murray Ville Cemetery after a graveside service with family in Langley, BC.
