Obituary

Obituary for Della Johanna Grant (Wallace)

Della Johanna Grant, 81 years young, passed away on May 10th at Eagle Ridge Hospital after having fought valiantly with illness. Della, a pumpkin farmer and beekeeper, was born in New Westminster but spent almost all of her adult life tending to her five-acre farm in Port Coquitlam.

Della was predeceased by her husband Cameron and her parents Howard and Marie (Ooms) Wallace. She was dearly loved, will be eternally missed, and forever remembered by her brother Keith, her nieces Deborah (Marc), Loralyn, and Donalee (Rob), and by her extended family and friends, and by the wonderful
acquaintances she made along her journey. We are all blessed to have been in the presence of an extraordinary woman.

In her earlier years Della worked at Scott Paper and B.C. Tel, but she found her true calling when she fell in love with farming. Della became an avid gardener, with the keenest of green thumbs, growing vegetables, beautiful flowers and epic pumpkins. Della brought much joy to many people with her annual Halloween pumpkin display, which drew in countless repeat customers, families, and children’s school bus tours.  Della took great pride in her pumpkins and worked tirelessly year after year to make it a special occasion, fulfilling a dream that spanned several decades.
 
Della was also very involved in her community and contributed generously to numerous local charities that were near and dear to her heart. The Della and Cam Grant Fund was established in 2014 through the Coquitlam Foundation. The Fund’s purpose is to improve the quality of life in the Tri-Cities communities by helping Canadian Veterans, sports for children, women and children in poverty, the homeless, and children living with life threatening illness.

Della had a free and youthful spirit and a witty (and sometimes shocking) sense of humour. She was lucky by nature and did remarkably well on her excursions to play the slots at the Casino, a pastime she truly enjoyed. She had a thirst for travel and adventure that was equaled only by her love of family and friends and her passion for nurturing plants and animals. Della was a hopeless romantic and a fierce advocate for animal rescue. She had a soft heart for those less fortunate; her kindness and generosity will be truly missed.

Our family would like to thank all those who provided Della their compassionate care including: Steve, Sharon Bayger, Home Instead Home Care, Fraser Health nurses, Big Hearts Home Care nurses, Ann Kuajok, Eagle Ridge Hospital Staff and Countryside Kennels for their care of Della’s cats Cagney & Lacy.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Charity of your choice. Condolences and tributes may be sent to the family by visiting www.burquitlamfuneralhome.ca

Della will be missed, I really enjoyed her often sardonic humor. Her and Cameron were the true "salt of the earth", and I learned a lot working on their farm, which was both hard work and an amazing experience. I count myself lucky for the time and experiences we shared. It's very sad to see her passing.

My condolences to family.its not easy to our beloved ones but what i liked in her kindness and generosity because even the Bible says there's more happiness in giving than receiving Acts 20: 35 and will not forget the love she had shown Hebrews 6:10
