Kathleen Faye Ward (Cheveldaeff)

November 25, 1934 – July 29, 2020
Passed away peacefully at Langley Hospice on July 29, 2020.
Kathy was born on November 25, 1934 at the family farm near Pelly, Saskatchewan, the youngest child of Russian immigrants Nicholas and Anna Cheveldaeff. She had three older siblings: Anne, Bill and Mary. Kathy completed secretarial school and worked in a law office in Saskatoon before following her siblings to Flin Flon. Kathy and her husband Lew met and married in Flin Flon, Manitoba before moving their young family to Aldergrove BC in 1963. Kathy loved fashion and owned Jan’s Place, a womenswear shop in downtown Aldergrove, and also worked as a care aid with seniors and in the family construction business after raising her children. She enjoyed thrift stores and garage sales and was always happy to share her good finds. Kathy (“Nan”) loved the outdoors, spending time boating, camping, and gardening. She also enjoyed watching sports: baseball, hockey and especially curling. Nan attended many hockey, basketball and baseball games, horse shows and dance recitals over the years. She also loved music and entertaining company.
Nan was always very supportive and welcoming to those who joined her family and everyone was welcome in her home. She always had kind words and a listening ear. Nan was incredibly proud of her three children Randi, Terry (France) and Bob (Charlene), her grandchildren Sarah Kathleen (Erwin), Julie (Ed), Kaitlin (Stephanie), Shayla (Rob), Brody, Jared and Jacob, and her great grandsons, Sawyer and Alexander. Above all else, she adored the love of her life – her husband Lewis, to whom she was married for over 57 years and preceded her in death in 2014.
Nan will be greatly missed by her family and friends, but her kindness, humour and love will live on within our hearts forever.
A private Celebration of Life for immediate family will be held at a later date. Memorial donations can be made to the Langley Hospice Society. The family would like to thank Dr. Sheila Bowling for her ongoing care and the staff at the Langley Hospice for their support and compassion. Obituary
