Mavis Patricia Robson

May 5, 1931 ~ August 4, 2023 (age 92) 92 Years Old


It is with profound sadness and much love that we mourn the passing of our beloved Mum and Nana, Mavis Patricia Robson, on August 4, 2023, at the age of 92. Holding the hands of her daughter, Mavis left earthside to reunite with the love of her life, Brian Robson.

Mavis will forever be in the hearts of her children Jennifer (Gary) and Christopher; granddaughters Sarah (Joshua) and Laura (Curtis); great grandchildren Ava, London, Levi, and Miles; and numerous special family and friends.

Predeceased by her adoring husband of 67 years, Brian; their dear son Peter; parents James and Alice Jennison; and seven of her siblings overseas.

Born in Bridlington, England, May 5, 1931, Mavis immigrated to Ontario, Canada, in December 1956 with her husband. In the coming years, Brian and Mavis welcomed their three children and Mavis devoted her life to raising them and supporting her husband as he established and grew his career. Following numerous moves and adventures, Brian and Mavis settled in West Vancouver where they happily resided for 40 years. In 2014, Brian and Mavis moved to Kelowna to be closer to most of their family. Forever young at heart, Mavis was an outgoing and spirited lover of life. Extremely social and enthusiastic, Mavis was active with her church and a constant at its bazaars, volunteering her time and contributing many knit, plastic canvas, and sewn crafts. A keen golfer, puzzler, bridge player, crafter, soap opera watcher, and Kiwanis volunteer, Mavis also enjoyed her many trips to Arizona and Hawaii with Brian and their friends.

Always one to have fun, Mavis spent her most senior years playing poker, visiting the casino, wine tasting in the Okanagan, “jigging” around the dance floor at happy hour, and connecting and making memories with her four greatest joys – Ava, London, Levi, and Miles. Always generous with her love and time, Mavis was her family’s biggest cheerleader and took great pride in her loved ones’ accomplishments. She adored her family and cherished their time and memories together. Mum/Nana, gone too soon and loved beyond measure, you are an irreplaceable treasure to our family whose hugs, smiles, and energetic presence will be deeply missed and forever remembered. We wish you the most beautiful reunion with Dad/Grandad and Peter, and hope you were greeted with an “M-sized” glass of wine upon your arrival.

Honoring Mavis’ wishes, an intimate family celebration of life will be held September 2023. A special thank you to the Doctors and Nurses at KGH, Emergency Responders, Dr. Heather Martin, Shuswap Palliative Care Nurses, all the staff at Sandalwood Retirement Resort and Bowers Funeral Services for your care and compassion.
