August 19th, 1951 – November 22nd, 2022
With broken and heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our mom Rain Buck, on November 22, 2022 with us, Rees and Rikki her daughters, at her side. She was predeceased by her parents Walter and Dorothy Erratt. In lieu of a formal service or flowers and if you so wish, a donation to an animal rescue or veterinary hospital of your choice could be made in Rain’s name.
It is said that your whole life flashes in front of you on your way out of this world. And for our mom, Rain, that flash would be vast and full of momentous moments; moments from many different places and with many different people over time. Our mom led a rich and colourful life, from the mountains, rivers, and ocean of BC where she was born, to singing on stage, along with travelling the country on motorcycle, then onto loving people and animals during her lifework at veterinary clinics, to making a home and a family with us (our dad, Ron Buck, sister-in-law Linda Greenhalgh whom passed 04/26/20, and niece Jennifer Girardin).
Momentousness was mom’s gift to this earth, it’s what she gave to others. By her unquestionable strength, sheer magnetism and sparkle, she was able to make you feel as though the world centered on you, that you in fact, mattered. And in a world that is more and more devoid of meaning and gentle kindness, mom’s gift shone ever more bright in those many lives that she touched. And in the same way that the dying have their life flash before them, we that are left behind have our flash of memories too. Ours with mom are rich, many, and diverse, but anchored in love. In that, we take our mom with us through the rest of our journeys, doing what mom did: doing all things with love.Print This Obituary & Condolences
