Feb. 16, 1924 – May 7, 2013
Passed away in her home in Courtenay with the love of her family around her on May 7, 2013. She was predeceased by her husband Arthur in 2003.
She is survived and will be dearly missed by her sister Margaret Chapman, her daughters Dawn Power (Geoff) of Salmon Arm, B.C., Robyn “Dale” Dyck (Henry) of Courtenay and Debbie McVean (Brian) of Surrey, B.C., her grandchildren Amber, Sean, Kelly, Adam, Lacey and Brianne, great grandchildren Dannica, Christina and Riley and soon to be born – great, great grandson, Abel, as well as many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
She was a lifelong member of the Pythian Sisters of Union Bay. Bubs and Art retired to Union Bay in 1979 enjoying many happy years together working in their beautiful gardens and enjoying the frequent visits of friends and family.
She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and soul. She was profoundly wise and an inspiration to all those she met and the most amazing mother and grandmother anyone could wish for.
A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Flowers gratefully declined, but if friends so wish, a memorial donation in Bubs’ memory made to the Courtenay Red Cross or The Lions Club would be appreciated.
