Port Coquitlam's most famous mom will be commemorated in a book of condolences.

The city of PoCo will help locals share their thoughts in a book that will be presented to the family of Betty Fox, who died last Friday. The book will recognize the significant contributions Fox made to PoCo. Mother of the late Terry Fox, Betty Fox was a crusader for cancer research who devoted the last 30 years to the cause.

The city's book of condolences will be available for signing at the customer service desk at the PoCo rec complex at 2150 Wilson Ave. until the end of the month during the following hours: weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

People may also express their condolences online at the Terry Fox Foundation website, www.terryfox.org.
