It is with great sadness in our hearts that we the family have to announce the passing of our mother Myrtle Vivian McCord – nee Paul at the age of 97.
The beloved mother of four (with one predeceased son before her – Peter Roger Sopow) She will be remembered by her remaining children: Eleanor (Elly) Preston (Mark) in Nanaimo, Son’s Ben Sopow (Lynne) in Nanaimo and Raeford McCord in Airdrie, Alberta. She is the grandmother of nine and Great Grandmother of three. Once her second husband passed away she went back to school and finishing came out on top of the class and then ventured into a few odd jobs until she settled into working at the Bank of Montreal till she retired. This took her to many communities in B.C. and Alberta. She met her last husband in Alberta and they enjoyed traveling to many places to see family and friends. Then when he passed on she retired and took it upon herself to help her children and their children whilst they worked. After spending time in Alberta, she then came back to B.C. and spent more time with other members of her family and siblings……taking care of them. She lived a life where family and friends were most important to her. She was born in Princeton B.C. to her parents Benjamin and Blanche Paul, who then had nine children. Five of those siblings have since predeceased: Manson, Carl, Blanche, Noel and Dudley, with three surviving, who will greatly miss her: brother Wally Paul in Vernon, sister’s Judy McCord in Vernon and Sylvia Eubanks in Texas. With all that knew her, she will be remembered for her special talents besides her kindness and compassion to help, her sewing, like for example, when she had an assembly line of making everyone a fleece hooded jacket – seventeen to be precise, her knitting till she fell and broke her wrist, her keeping right up on par on all the news and happenings of the goings on around the world and the special care she put upon and gave to her Grandson Russell, teaching him how to play crib and the joke was, cheat while playing, and the many trips she had him go on each year with the help of his cousin Teri. Granddaugher Teri and Myrtle had a very special bond too, her love of ice-cream was talked about by many. We all had stories.
She will be mourned and missed by all that knew her. May her memory be a blessing. We love you Mom…… may you now have peace!!
