The B.C. Coroners Service will hold a public inquest into the death of Joan Andrews.

At age 76, Andrews died after falling in the HomeShare residence where she lived on Feb. 10, 2011. She used a wheelchair.

Coroner Matthew Brown and a jury will hear evidence from witnesses to establish the facts in the incident. The purpose of the inquest is not to find fault but the jury can make recommendations to help prevent similar deaths.

Andrews was born in Montreal and was a parishioner at St. Mary the Virgin, Oak Bay Anglican Church.

The date and venue of the inquest will be announced once confirmed.
