Obituary

Flora Marie Teresa Oriecuia (née Keane) July 6, 1929 – September 29, 2018 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Flora Oriecuia. She was predeceased by her husband Natale, son Steve, her parents Steven and Edith and her siblings Frank, Eugene, Pascal, Jerry, Marlene, Betty, Dorothy and Mary. She is survived by her sons Fred and Morris (Kristi), her granddaughters Kaitlyn (Mark) and Taylor (Owen) and her brother Terry. She is also survived by her in-laws and many nieces and nephews. Mass of Christian Burial took place on October 6, 2018. Flora was born in Kilkenny, Ireland. She was the youngest daughter in a family with 10 children. She had a long career as a registered nurse. She left home at 16 to train in London, England, also working in Chicago, before coming to Powell River where she worked until she retired at 65. She loved being a nurse. Flora moved to Powell River in 1959, where she married Natale and raised three sons. She was also blessed with two granddaughters. She kept busy in her retirement, socializing with many friends and travelling. Her health limited her later in life, but she made a lot of new friends at the old Olive Devaud Residence and Kiwanis Manor assisted living residence. She was always happy when her family or friends visited. Flora was a very kind, friendly and sweet-natured women. We love her and will miss her. We would like to thank our family and friends for their support. Thank you also to Father Tepoorten and Father Dass, the alter boys, organist, choir and Stubberfield Funeral Home, Flowers by Cori-Lynn, and Town Centre Hotel; Aunt Maureen, Uncle Reg and our cousins John, Sue, Dan and Jeff. And thank you to Dr. Rossouw and his staff Kim and Cindy, Dr. Maguire, her hair dresser Tina and everyone at the old Olive Devaud, Kiwanis Manor and ECU. A special thanks to Aunt Iva, and to Lyn, Lorraine, Diana, Maureen C, and Nyumi, also Sylvie and Carol.
