It was a time of reflection and remembrance as family and friends joined one another at Westminster United Church to celebrate the life of a dear lady, Irene Nelson-Williams. Rev. Hillson led the congregation through the service of worship, offering comfort and hope… Irene loved flowers and there was an abundance of floral arrangements that tastefully decorated the church… family honoured Grandma’s life by speaking of special memories and sharing a video tribute that took everyone on a trip down memory lane… she would have been proud to see her grandchildren respectfully act as pallbearers and carry her away to her final place of rest. This past Saturday, Irene was taken home to peacefully rest at the Craigmyle Cemetery.
Surrounded by the Heaven’s,
In the grace of God above…
She’s looking down upon us,
Watching over her legacy of love.
Her Life Lived…
Her Life Cherished…
Her Life Honoured.
