February 24, 1932 - May 23, 2019
You were an amazing Mother; what more could a child ask for?
It is with great sadness the family of Bridget O’Kell announce her passing on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at the age of 87. She will be loved and remembered by her four children: Martin (Karen), Adrienne (Bob), Andrew (Kathy) and Desmond (Carol); four grandchildren, Kevin (Kerry), Allison (Alex), Lauren (Dean) and Conor; one great grandchild, Logan; and many nieces and nephews in the UK, Australia, U.S. and France.
Bridget was born in Sale, Cheshire, England in 1932 and immigrated to Edmonton in 1957 just prior to settling in St. Albert in 1961. Mom’s fun loving nature made her a great many friends over the decades and she always seemed to light up a room wherever she went. We will all miss her feisty spirit, great sense of humour and her brilliant laugh (and that includes all the kids who felt so free to call her “mom” too).
We’d like to thank the wonderful staff at the Citadel Care Centre for their kindness and loving care of our Mom.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Westlawn Funeral Home, 16310 Stony Plain Road, Edmonton on Friday, June 7, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to either the Alberta Diabetes Foundation or the Lung Association of Alberta & NWT.
