Mrs. Dulcie Lorraine Greenfield
August 22, 1938 – May 28, 2018
It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Dulcie Lorraine Greenfield, age 79, who died, surrounded by her loving family, on May 28, 2018, in her home in West Vancouver, BC, Canada after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She is survived by her beloved husband of 54 years, Stanley Greenfield; her devoted daughters, Sheryn Calvert, Nicola Gandossi and Andrea Yeo; her caring sons’ in law, Nicholas Gandossi and Dean Yeo; her wonderful grandchildren, Jacob, Madison, Jesse, Braelyn, Hanna and Isabella; and her large loving family in New Zealand. Dulcie was born on August 22, 1938 in Mangaroa, Upper Hutt, New Zealand and immigrated to Canada in 1968. She was the glue (known as “Gammy Glue”) that held the family together and her absence will forever be felt. Dulcie had a wide circle of new and lifelong friends and will be truly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to be touched by her generous, caring and thoughtful nature. Her legacy of a zest for life, “putting others first” demeanour, and love of entertaining with fine food, wine and great friends will continue to live on through her children and grandchildren. The family would like to thank the compassionate and skilled doctors, surgeons, nurses and homecare staff that lovingly cared for Dulcie throughout this journey. A funeral is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 10:00am at Boal Chapel in North Vancouver followed by a private graveside burial for immediate family only. A Celebration of Life will follow in the months to come; all will be welcome.

Dear Dulcie, we mourne the loss of you after 54 years of being part of our family.
You have been loved by us from before you honoured me with the task of BestMan at your NZ wedding with my brother Stan.
You have been, and still are very special to us all.
May God keep you in His loving arms until we meet again.
We pray God's peace to all the family in Vancouver and NZ.

Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26
Our New Zealand family is praying for our Canadian family at this sad time. Aunty Dulcie was a beautiful women both in physical appearance but also her soul. One day we will all rejoice together with those that have gone before us, in the meantime The Lord still has much work for us to do and we grieve for those that we miss. Kia kaha my dear Uncle and Cousins, Kia kaha.
