Heather (Penny) Dawn Adcock (nee Penrose) of Sechelt passed away in Sechelt at the age of 88 on Monday, November 04, 2019.
Heather was the youngest child of William Charles Penrose and Kathleen Marguerite Penrose (nee Hitchens). Heather was pre-deceased by her parents, by her husband Antony Herbert Martin Adcock, by her grandson Damon Peter Martin Cragg and by her brothers Ronald Penrose and Desmond Penrose.
Heather was born September 8, 1931 in Liskeard, Cornwall, UK. She attended St Clare's School in Penzance, Cornwall and received an RN certification from Middlesex Hospital London in 1953. Heather married the late Antony Herbert Martin Adcock in Penzance in 1953 and they lived together in Kenya, Ceylon, Ascension Island and Penzance, before emigrating to Canada in 1962. In Canada they lived in North Vancouver BC, Almonte Ont., Gabriola Island BC, Ottawa Ont. and Sechelt BC. After Antony's death in 2014, Heather resided with her youngest daughter Kara in Sechelt.
Heather is survived by her four children: Amanda (Peter) Cragg of West Vancouver, Mark (Lynn) Adcock of Scottsdale AZ, Martin (Corrie Mosier) Adcock of White Rock and Kara (Kai) Wagner of Sechelt. She is also survived by eight grandchildren: Rory (Jamie) Cragg, Trevor (Merren) Cragg, Katie (Darric) Perry (nee Adcock), Keith (Sydney) Adcock, Stephen Adcock, Joshua Wagner, Cosette Wagner and Tahj Wagner and by seven great grandchildren: Damon, Ellington, and Monroe Cragg, Zachary Cragg and Lillian, Charles and Jack Perry. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews in the UK.
Heather was a warm, loving, generous and fun mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who had a deep and abiding love of nature. She will be greatly missed by her extensive family in the UK, US and Canada and by all who have had the pleasure to know her. The family would like to thank those who cared for her: Coastal Health Caregivers, Home Healthcare Network, Grace Lewis, Irene Bremer and especially Fran Heney and Hamed Almefalani for their patient and gentle care. And finally, we'd like to thank the nurses and doctors at Sechelt Hospital.
