Beverly Jane McGillivray (Wood)

October 9, 1918 – August 20, 2015

Jane was the only child of Roderick Chapin and Oneita (Herzog) Wood of Wisconsin, USA. At 96, she passed peacefully at the Views in Comox, BC. At 21, Jane married and lost her mother in the same year. At 24, Jane’s husband was lost at sea in the war. She married and divorced three other times. She had no children.

Jane became a Canadian citizen in 1960. Growing up in Wisconsin, she later moved to New Jersey, New York, Florida, Ontario and BC. She also travelled to the Caribbean, California, Washington and Hawaii.

She raised collies, worked in retail, administration and esthetics. Jane was an avid reader of mysteries, loved crosswords, a good laugh and anything chocolate. There will be no service.

Special thanks to Dr. Bakshi, home-care and staff at the Views.

Honoured to have known you, grateful for the time spent with you, appreciative of your love, kindness and sense of humour (We will miss your quick wit most of all). Rest now Jane, we all love you and thank you for touching our hearts – The Newcombes, Bob (Marsha), Rick (Carrol), Wendy and families.
