Felicia Eaton (1960-2014), passed away suddenly April 15 doing what she loved — snowmobiling in the mountains. Predeceased by her stepfather, Bud Eaton, she leaves behind her husband, Robert (Bob) Peacock; son, Ian Peacock; grandchildren, Annalise and Jacob; daughter, Myanne Peacock; mother, Nalane (Jerry) Johnston; father, Casimir Snowadski; sisters, Brenda Palmer, Wanda (Kevin) Mehl, Debbie (Pat) Luker and Lanna Vogel; niece, Randi Salinas and nephews, Logan Gray and Brandon Feneide, as well as many loved friends.
Felicia grew up in Westport, Wash., where she fondly remembered working as a charter boat deck hand. Felicia went on to attend Eastern Washington University obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene.
She moved to Cranbrook in 1984 where she met Bob. She developed an interest for flying, obtaining her pilots license and becoming a member of the Cranbrook Flying Club. She also dabbled in skydiving before discovering her love for the mountains, spending time hiking and berry picking in the summers and snowmobiling in the winters. She had a great love of animals and her cats Sambuca, Bailey and Kahlua were her joy.
She proudly worked as a dental hygienist, beginning her career in Cranbrook working with Dr. Rokus and then branching out recently to start her own mobile dental hygiene business in the Robson Valley.
Her love of snowmobiling brought her to Tete Jaune Cache in 2008 and started another chapter in Felicia and Bob’s lives where they established a new community of friends. Felicia loved being surrounded by nature and was happy with her new life in the Rocky MountainTrench.
Felicia will be fondly remembered for her fun, vivacious, unique and adventurous spirit. She had a special curiosity for life and was a great talker, creating special friendships with those around her. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
A celebration of life will be held July 4, 2014, at the Chateau, 710 Hancock, Westport, WA 98595, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Beach Room.
