Monica Catherine Stiles

May 22, 1929 - October 25, 2017


Monica was born in Trail, BC, on May 22, 1929. She left us unexpectedly on October 25, 2017. Her husband of 59 years Pete, daughters Chris (Rick Young and their son Andrew) and Suzie and son Peter are left to mourn a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother.
All those who have been touched by Monica will be saddened by the news, but will look back fondly at the time spent with her and perhaps smile. Also surviving Monica are many nieces and nephews and their children. She was predeceased by her brother Walter and his wife Gwen.
After graduating high school in Trail, Monica spent two years at Washington State Collage in Pullman, Washington. Here she made a lasting friendship with a classmate and our families have become very close over the years. In the 50s, she took a business course and followed that path until her marriage in 1958 to her childhood sweetheart.
Over the next eight years, the family, now three girls, patiently moved from mining camp to mining camp. In 1966, Monica asked to stay at least two years at our next move: Texada Island. It has been our home ever since.
Texada Island allowed Monica to pursue her lifelong love of sports, with a pause long enough to have our fourth child, Peter. Her playing days were done but she loved to teach, coach, manage and, finally, keep score. School basketball and sports days, badminton, swimming, curling and softball kept her busy. She was enamored of children and they of her. Someone with a baby had to stop and allow it to be admired, as she loved children.
Island organizations were eager to have Monica on their roster. She was quickly enveloped into the island fabric.
Monica will be sorely missed by all her friends and especially her family.
God speed, Monica
