KOSHURE: Joanne Veronica of Vancouver Formerly of Edmonton

Posted by on May 6, 2016

images-4It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our dear sister and aunt Joanne on April 25th, 2016. Her Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 on Friday, May 6th at Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church located at 1430 West 38th Avenue, Vancouver, BC. Interment will follow at the Mountain View Cemetery.

Joanne was born on October 9th, 1928 in Leeshore, Alberta, the youngest of a large farming ranch family. Joanne studied accounting in Edmonton and worked in that field all her life. In Edmonton she rose to head the accounting department of the Eaton’s store and for recreation was an avid fan of the Eskimos football team, travelling as far as Winnipeg with her two sports fan sisters, Mili and Vicki. Joanne relocated to Vancouver in the 1950s and carried on both her accounting career and her love of outdoor activities. She worked for Dominion Construction for many years before moving into the private sector. Vancouver’s climate and location were perfect for her bicycling, hiking and skiing, which led her into a successful pursuit of outdoor photography. Her slide shows were the main event at many of our family gatherings in Vancouver.

Joanne enjoyed travel and immersed herself in the culture of Ecuador during a month long trip to visit her sister Mili, where they went to as many areas of the country as possible, touring both historic cathedrals in the cities and equally old churches in small towns. A highlight was when Joanne was granted access to a church cellar storage room where the bishop-priest showed her their precious relics. A devout Catholic her entire life, Joanne enjoyed attending Mass throughout Ecuador, from tiny villages to the capitol, Quito, she made sure to experience it all. She took incredible photos of everything she saw and shared her trip with family and friends.

Joanne was always generous of her time when her nieces and nephews were growing up, be it sports or photography she encouraged and taught skills. She accompanied two generations on outings to Grouse Mountain, Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park and various beaches, as well as the Zoo and Aquarium and the wonderful old Crystal Pool that predated the Aquatic Centre. Joanne was a loving and amazing auntie who brought the Big City to life in a great way for her smaller town nieces and nephews.

Joanne supported charities and community endeavors throughout her life and was a dedicated member of her church and its women’s reading group, among others through the decades. Her Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church family meant a great deal to her. While family and friends have both dwindled through the years, those who remain will miss her likely more than she would have imagined.

FLETCHER: LUCY REBECCA (nee Taker) of Ottawa

Posted by on March 22, 2016

images-4Dec. 5, 1926 — March 17, 2016

The effervescent and restless spirit of Lucy Fletcher (nee Taker), Ottawa, left this world on St. Patrick’s Day, 2016, at age 89 — no doubt in search of new adventures!

Born in Timmins, Ont., she grew up in New Glasgow, N.S., and remained a Maritimer at heart. She was predeceased by parents Percy and Bertie (nee Keating) Taker, brothers Laurence [“Tiny”] and Roy Taker and sister Greta (Don) Macdonald. She is survived by sons Don (Mary Jo), Paul (Annie), daughters Marla and Becky (Ken) and sister Blanche (Reg) Kendall, former partner Donald Fletcher and grandchildren Chelsey, Dana, Ian, Jacob, Kevin, Leo and Meghan.
Lucy was a determined, proud woman who gave her all raising four children to each become strong, creative and independent individuals. Her secretarial work served her well in educational, banking, real estate, military, legal and government settings over the years. She valued education highly, and constantly encouraged those around her to continue learning and seize every opportunity to better themselves. She loved music – especially jazz – as well as reading, gardening, travel and being in the company of family and friends. She had a wicked sense of humour, always ready to share a laugh or an adventure.

A compassionate and loyal friend, Lucy was also an unforgettable daughter, sister, mother, aunt and grandmother who will be sadly missed.

Visitation will be at the Westboro Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 403 Richmond Rd., Ottawa, on Wed. March 23, 2016, 1-2 pm followed by service in the chapel at 2 pm. Burial to follow at Pinecrest Cemetery. If you’d like to make a charitable donation in Lucy’s name to the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County, that would be very much appreciated.
