Rhoda Mae (Smith) Slaine

October 20, 1933 to March 2, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rhoda Slaine. Originally from Sandy Lake, Manitoba, Rhoda travelled with her family to Ontario, then to BC. After high school, she moved to Vancouver where she met her future husband, Bill. They later relocated to Cassiar, then to Penticton.

Her greatest joys were found in the simple pleasures of life such as puttering in and around her house and garden, being surrounded by her many dogs and cats, and swimming in Skaha Lake and watching the birds and other wildlife there. Rhoda often enjoyed the company of her brother’s family over the years, and shared many happy times with them. She also had numerous good friends. From her coworkers at the Bank of Montreal, where she worked for almost 30 years, to others she met along the way, they all became part of her extended family.

Predeceased by her husband, parents and siblings, she will be missed by family and her close friends, including the Strobls, Janet and the Martin clan, Lee and Jana, Sach, Marjorie and so many more. Thank you to Dr. Phillips and to the staff at Village by the Station for the care they provided to Rhoda in her final years. A Celebration of Life will be held for Rhoda on Monday, May 23, 2016 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Linden Gardens and Frog City Cafe in Kaleden. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity

of your choosing.
