May 2, 1936 – March 17, 2015
With much sadness we announce that Fay passed peacefully after a brief illness.
Fay is survived by her loving husband Bob, son Mike (Chris), daughter JoAnn (George), son Brent (Michelle). Also missing Fay are her grandchildren Katherine (Dom) Leong, Bonnie Logan, Julia and Anton Milutinovic and great-grandson Ethan Leong.
Fay is survived by her four siblings: John (Grace – d) McNish, Jean (Al) Parker; Terry (Tony – d) Lewchuk, Ross (Sharon) McNish. Aunts Alice Scott and Pat Crockett mourn the loss of their niece. Fay leaves legions of Crockett family cousins and nieces and nephews throughout BC. She is also survived by her brother-in-law, Vern (Joan) Logan.
Born in Comox, BC to Edith and Fred McNish, Fay grew up on Headquarters Road, attended Tsolum School, and then the UBC Faculty of Commerce. After years up north, Fay returned to UBC and earned her teaching certificate. She taught Business Education courses in Victoria and Campbell River at the ‘Old Junior,’ Southgate, Robron, and Carihi schools.
Fay lived in Campbell River for over 50 years, and enjoyed many adventures, travels, and family events, including her 50th Wedding Anniversary in October 2014. She cherished all of her family and friends: school chums, ACW, neighbours, bridge partners, fellow volunteers, IOF friends, and Ocean Falls connections. Fay was generous, loving, caring, and devoted. She possessed that marvelous blend of intelligence and wisdom. We miss her positive spirit, her capable ways, her ever-present smile, and her twinkling eyes.
Donations gratefully accepted in Fay’s name to the CR Hospice Society or Operation Eyesight.
The celebration of Fay’s life will be 1:00 pm on Monday the 30th of March, 2015 at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Campbell River, BC. Venerable Dr. Blair Haggart officiating. Boyd’s Funeral Services in charge of arrangements.
