Mavis Devlin Ross

Dec. 25, 1918 – Dec. 13, 2012

Passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, B.C. on Dec. 13, 2012. She was predeceased by her first husband Peter Moore, her second husband Arthur Birchall, her third husband Lester Ross, her daughter Gail and her brother Craig Ferguson.

Mavis is survived and will be sadly missed by her only son John Birchall and his wife of 49 years, Mary and their sons Rick, Rob and Ron, her great grandchildren; Thomas, Isaac, Eric and Hannah, Mavis’ son-in-law Jim McEwan (Isobel) and Jim’s son David McEwan, step-daughter Heather and stepson George Ross, Mavis’ brother Bill Ferguson and his wife Betty and family, her sister Mary and family in Norway, sister-in-law Nancy Ferguson and family, her special friends Alice Scott and Pearl Larson as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

Mavis belonged to the Canadian Daughters and had many friends in the Comox Valley.

A Celebration of Mavis’ Life will take place in May (location and date to be announced later) when having milder weather will hopefully allow family from near and far to attend.

If friends so wish, donations in Mavis’ memory made to the Canadian Daughters would be appreciated.
