1924 - 2017
We are sorry to announce the passing of Wilhelmine Marie Thomson – nee Fahlman. Known as “Billie” to family and friends, mom left us peacefully to join her husband Donald of 62 years, on May 16, 2017 at 93 years of age.
One of the 9 “Fahlman” girls, mom was born March 26, 1924 to parents Elisabeth and Joseph. As a child she moved to Kelowna with her family where she was raised and attended school. After completing her studies to become a teacher she began teaching at the one room school house in Turtle Valley. It was in the valley that she met one of the “Thomson” boys – Donald, who she would marry in April 1952. They settled in Kamloops in 1963 where she remained until her passing.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, husband, brother, five of her sisters and her son in law Dennis Lockie.
She will be lovingly remembered by her son Kelly and daughter Donna (Lockie), as well as the surviving “Fahlman” girls and “Thomson” boys: Kate, Helen, and Pat, John, Allan and David. Billie is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
We would like to extend our gratitude to the compassionate and caring staff of Ridgeview Lodge.
At mom’s request no service will be held. A private internment of mom’s cremated remains will be held later this year when she will be laid to rest with her husband.
In lieu of flowers, should you wish donations in moms memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
God called your name – your time for rest has come.
Rest in peace mom. Until we meet again.
