<div itemprop="description">Purita Montes<br />December 8, 1940 &ndash; October 9, 2014<br /><br />It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of beloved wife and mother Purificacion (Purita) Montes. Purita left our world peacefully on October 9, 2014 with members of her family at her side. Purita graduated with a Banking and Finance degree from the University of the East. She was a working mom who ended her office career as a Division Chief at the Commission on Elections in Manila, Philippines, but what she will really be remembered for is her love of singing and nurturing nature. She loved children -- not just her own -- but also the kids she took care of at her day home in Grande Prairie in the 90&rsquo;s. She had a green thumb that made any plant she touched flourish, and her garden was her pride and joy, especially her orchids. <br />She will be forever loved and missed by her husband, Ernie and children Lori, John, Chris, Ardie and Erin (Saskatoon), and PJ.<br />Visitation will be held on Tuesday, October 14th from 6 &ndash; 9 pm, and the Catholic service is on Wednesday October 15th at 2 pm, both at Westlawn Funeral Home, 16310 Stony Plain Road. <br />There are three options if you wish to honour our mom: flowers, a donation to Pancreatic Cancer Canada: , or a blood donation to Canadian Blood Services. <br /></div>
