Dorothy “Brenda” Ducharme

June 23, 1932 – Aug. 6, 2021

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Brenda.

Born to Tom and Elsie Taylor of Malvern County, United Kingdom. Loving wife of 63 years to Bob. Caring mother to Debbie, Christine, and Tim (LJ). Grammy to Alycia and Justin. Sister to Mary. Aunt to Sue (Rick), Bob (Kerry), and Mary (Frank).

When Bob retired from the Canadian Armed Forces in 1971, they moved the family to Gabriola Island where they found a welcoming community and built their dream home. Mom loved her garden and spent many hours nurturing it.

In 1989, they moved to their new home in Nanaimo where Mom toiled to transform her backyard into a beautiful English oasis. She was an avid collector of Lilliput Lane houses, and was well known for her collection. She will be missed by all her friends and family.

A private service will be held at Luther Court. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Brenda to Luther Court Society where Brenda and Bob have lived since 2019.

Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8
