of Quesnel, BC quietly passed away
Friday, Oct 23 2015 at the age of 83.
Nancy Adeline Tellman was born March 7, 1932, the sixth and youngest daughter of Vern and Alma Tellman of Lake City, Minnesota. It was the spring of the worst year of the Great Depression, but she was a sparkling child, with a stout constitution and joyful spirit that would carry her and those she loved for the rest of her life. So how can you sum up a life? How can you condense the experiences earned growing from sparkling child to young Army wife, from working mother to seasoned rancher? How can you sum up all of the little things that collect over a journey that stretches from Minnesota to California, across the Texas panhandle and the Colorado high country, to the pristine wilderness of the British Columbia Cariboo? Those who knew her, whether by her love of music, her winning smile, the hats she so fondly wore, or her books and poetry, know that you can’t.
Nancy remains a much loved member of the Quesnel community and will be greatly missed. She is survived by three sisters, six children, seven grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, countless friends, and her dog.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Association, to whom we owe a special debt of gratitude, or the BC Cancer Foundation.
Heartfelt thanks to Drs. Smit, Jascobsen, Appleby and Leeuwner, the staff of Quesnel Home Care Nursing, Fraserview Pharmacy and the Quesnel and Prince George Hospitals.
A celebration of Nancy’s life will be held in Quesnel, details will follow.
