born December 14, 1939, Clonakilty, Co Cork, Ireland. Passed away peacefully on the morning of November 29, 2016, at Cowichan District Hospital, Duncan, BC. Survived by wife Margaret, children Sean (Terry), Kelly (Ronette), Erin, Tara-Leigh (Jeffrey), and Kerry, and step-children Keri-Lee (Doug) Kris, and grandchildren Brendan, Rebecca, Lucas, Taylor, Sara, Eunbai, Connor, Faye, Gemma, Alex, Emily, and TJ. John immigrated to Canada from Ireland as a young man alone in the world. He built a life for himself and his family that could only be described as colourful. He eventually settled on Vancouver Island, which bore the closest resemblance he could find to the home he had left in Ireland. He had a great love of poetry, literature, fine food, and a tidy tumbler of Irish Mist Whiskey. We will miss his tremendous sense of humour, his quick wit, and most of all, his enduring love for his children and grandchildren. His was the road less travelled.

After graduating from college, she served as a Master Corporal in the Canadian Armed Forces, for ten years at CFB Borden near Barrie, then three years in Edmonton in the Military Police. In 2013 she transferred from the Regular Forces to the Reserve Force.  She then moved to Calgary when she was employed by the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires for Southern Alberta, and also worked at the Calgary Drop-In and Rehabilitation Society.

She missed Ontario and wanted to move back to be closer to family and friends. Vikki was to arrive shortly to be Godmother for her new niece, Grace Katharine Kenny.

Vikki had the most amazing blue eyes and always lit up every room with that wonderful smile. She loved animals and walked dogs for the Humane Society and always had a cat for a companion.  She will be sorely missed by her many friends here in Ontario and in Edmonton and Calgary.

Cremation has taken place in Calgary. A private family service will be held at Immaculate Conception Church in Stratford, Ontario.  A celebration of Vikki’s life will take place at a later date in the summer, at the family cottage in Oakwood Park, Grand Bend, at which time her ashes will be committed to the family garden alongside those of her sister Katie.

RICHARDS: Shauna Leigh (Shaunski) of Winnipeg Formerly of Courtenay and Kelowna

Posted by on January 30, 2017

Richards, Shauna Leigh Oct 2, 1977 – Dec 18, 2016 There are no words to express our shock and sorrow with the sudden passing of our beautiful, spirited, loving Shauna, who died in Winnipeg, at the age of 39. Grandpa’s “little Toad” was called home to the open, loving arms of her family in heaven. Shauna was born in Ladysmith, BC In 1977. Her short life took her on a journey through Nanaimo, Nimpkish, Vernon Camp, Woss, Port McNeill, Courtenay, Westbank, Kelowna, and finally Winnipeg. The fuel in your engine, the Baileys in your coffee, the spark to ignite fireworks, and a trigger for an hysterical belly laugh are only a few analogies to describe Shauna! Always searching to fill a void, Shauna became lost after the death of her dad in 1994, and now she is found. She was known to pedal the Winnipeg streets on her mountain bike; her tiny dog, “Ruff”, tucked close to her body, hair flying in the wind like her dad, Brian, on his Harley! Be together finally and entertain in heaven! Shauna was predeceased by her dad, Brian,, sister Kelly, grandparents Anne and Sanford Garrah, and Jean and Ken Richards. A colourful journey, on sometimes bumpy roads, was Shauna’s path to eternity. She leaves behind her mom, Sharon, siblings Mike McNulty, Shannon (Clint) Cadwallader, Matt (Carly) Richards, partner Shaun, and stepson Marcus. Also mourning her passing aunts and uncles Judy (Wayne), Chris (Marcie) and cousins Patrick (Barb), Terry (Heather), Morgan, and Darcy (Catherine) and numerous nieces, nephews, and many friends. Shauna will be buried close to her dad in the Port McNeill cemetery at a later date. Donations in Shauna’s name, to SPCA or Canadian Cancer Society, in lieu of flowers, would be greatly appreciated. Love you forever and ever “Our beautiful little Toad”. Picture can be viewed at Campbell River Mirror online.
