Sophie Hilleren

March 28, 1952 - January 23, 2017


It was with heavy hearts that we had to say goodbye to our wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and great friend, Sophia, on Monday, January 23.

Sophia died peacefully, surrounded by her family, after her year long battle with cancer. We are pretty sure she was thinking about laying on a beach in Aruba with the sun on her face, sand in her toes and a rum punch in her hand.

Sophie is survived by her parents Anne and Jerry, her loving husband Ron, sons Michael, Greg and Rick, daughter Shawna and her husband Ernie, daughters-in-law Nikki and Rachel, brothers Ron, Lenny and Bradly, her Auntie Mary, four energetic grandchildren, many wonderful friends, her pup Jody, many cousins, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.

Sophie had very quick wit and a great sense of humour, which I'm sure many of you who knew her well can attest to. She loved her work as a medical transcriptionist for the medical clinic, Dr. Hoffert, Dr. Juszkiewicz and Dr. Howard, and took immense pride in it.

Sophie loved the simple things: a good book, family and friends, Wheel of Fortune, the sun on her face, two lobster tails instead of one, spending time with her “hubby,” playing with her pup Jody, travelling to warm places in the Caribbean, and a nice, cold Bacardi and Pepsi; it had to be white Bacardi and Pepsi.

The family would lastly like to graciously thank all of the nurses, doctors, and staff at the hospital who made Sophie's last days as peaceful and comfortable as possible. The care you provided is unsurpassed. You are all saints and we will be forever thankful for all that you do.

Sophie is with her angels now.

In lieu of flowers, donations to BC Cancer Agency would be greatly appreciated
