KROEGER, Chloe
(April 12, 2010 - July 14, 2014)

Chloe was granted her angel wings on July 14, 2014, Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that she had touched in some small way throughout her short, yet very memorable life. Chloe's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her gentle smile could melt the hearts of those around her. Although Chloe's illness made her appear frail, she possessed strength, perseverance, and an ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. With her courage she led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. She leaves with very precious memories Daddy and Mommy John & Gina Kroeger (Nee: Farrell) and big brother Lucas, Penticton, BC as well as a large circle of extended family and friends from the coast of British Columbia to the shores of Newfoundland. Cremation has taken place by family request. Those wishing to make memorial donations may donate to The Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of ones choice.
