MATTHEWS: Margaret (Peggy) Mary of Victoria

Posted by on April 17, 2018

MATTHEWS, Margaret Mary (Peggy), aged 90 of Victoria, BC, Canada passed away on Wednesday, April 4, 2018. Peggy was surrounded by her loving family, in the peace and comfort of her home, where she lived with her daughter Margaret and son-in-law Seamus for many years.
A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018, at 1:00 pm, Ross Bay Cemetery, 1495 Fairfield Road (use Memorial Street for parking). Tea and Refreshments to follow at the home of Peggy’s son Pat and daughter-in-law Susan, at 1633 Pinewood Avenue in Fairfield.
Peggy was born on September 9, 1927 to Robert and Christina Carolan, Gormanston Village, County Meath, Éire. She married Patrick Joseph Matthews (of Navan, Co. Meath) on October 12, 1948. They lived in Navan until June 1957 when they emigrated to Victoria, BC, Canada with their 5 young children.
Beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Peggy was also an avid and skilled golfer; winning many trophy’s and prizes over the years including Victoria City Ladies Champion (1970) and Gold Medalist in the 1978 BC Summer Games. She was always athletic and did well at any sport she put her hand to. She was an exceptional gardener; verdant, lush green lawns and hedges, flowers prolific and vegetables plentiful. Peggy loved all animals but most especially her little dogs. She always had at least one or two, and she spoiled them all rotten. She also had an impressive ‘charm’ of hummingbirds that she cared for every day. Some winter days she would have as many as 60 of the wee things clustered about her while she hung the feeders – and hang them every day she did.
Peggy is preceded in death by her husband Patrick J. Matthews (Aug 1986), her parents Robert and Christina Carolan, her brothers John and Robert, her sisters May, Christina, and Ester. She is survived by her five children and their spouses Robert (Darlene), Antoinette (Ted), Patrick (Susan), Brendan (Nancy) and Margaret (Seamus), her sister Anne Cassidy in Ireland, her grandchildren Patrick, Jannine, Simon, Katherine (Marcus), Kevin, Christine (Garth), Daniel (Lindsey), Caitlin, Andrew (Justine), Caroline, and Liam. Great grandchildren Claire, Margaret, Vivian, Aislinn, Clayton, Elena, and Quinn.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Peggy’s honour to the SPCA or World Wildlife Fund.
Peggy’s family wishes to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the nurses of the Palliative Response Team (Hospice PRT) for their care and kindness.

HUMPHRIES: MARY ELIZABETH of Lunenburg, NS Formerly of Toronto, Ontario

Posted by on April 6, 2018

images-4

It is with great sadness that the family of Mary Elizabeth Humphries, 92, of Lunenburg, announces her death on Thursday, February 22, 2018, at the Halifax Infirmary, Halifax.?? Born in Evanston, Illinois, she was the daughter of Andrew William and Elizabeth Holbrook (Marsales) Murdison.

In the course of her long life, Mary was an entrepreneur, scientist, educator, consumer advocate, broadcaster, author, volunteer, frustrated gardener, cat lover, singer, family historian and one of nature’s great enthusiasts. She never stopped learning new things, and was optimistic, curious and adventurous.

She grew up in Thornhill, Ontario, the youngest of four children. A brilliant student, Mary obtained both her B.A. and M.A. from University College, University of Toronto on full scholarships. She married English-born Michael Humphries in 1949, and became a specialist in textile and dye chemistry for Croy Knitting Mills.

An activist as well as a scientist, Mary helped shape the new Consumer Association of Canada from the 1950s and she broadcast her own weekly national consumer program on CBC Radio in the ‘60s. Mary taught textile science at Seneca College in Toronto for over 25 years. She was a Fellow of the Institute of Textile Science and a valued committee and board member for groups including the Metric Commission, Costume Society of Ontario, Jane Austen Society, Bata Shoe Museum, UC Book Sale, Maritime Concert Opera and many others. She made many, many friends through her professional and volunteer work.

She was an entrepreneur, writing and self publishing her own textbooks and swatch sets, which were eventually published by Prentice-Hall internationally and became some of the standard works in the field. She would definitely want us to remind you at this point that “a fibre is not a fabric”!

Mary is survived by her daughter, Nina Scott-Stoddart (David Mosey), Lunenburg; son Thomas (aka Chi) (Christa), Lahr, Germany; grandchildren, Dennis (Lydia) and Kai (Miriam Rother), Germany as well as her sister Jessie Wesley of Ontario and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sister Lucy Noble, her brother Andrew Murdison, her niece Heather Parekh and her nephew William Noble.

We would all like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the medical staff, especially the nurses, at South Shore General and the Halifax Infirmary, for their humane kindness and compassion , not only for Mary but for us.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Second Story Women’s Shelter in Lunenburg or SHAID Tree Animal Shelter of Lunenburg County would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements were by Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home in Lunenburg.

REYNOLDS: Tracey Lea of Kelowna Formerly of Winnipeg

Tracey Lea Reynolds, age 49, June 18, 1968 – February 23, 2018

Tracey Lea Reynolds passed away peacefully at Vancouver General Hospital surrounded by her family on the night of February 23, 2018. Tracey was a permanent resident of Kelowna, BC, and was born in Winnipeg, MB.

With great sadness in their loss, Tracey is survived by her daughter, Sara Rose, longtime partner Ron Campbell, parents Carole and Barry Reynolds, sisters Lisa Reynolds and April Cherpaw, brother Cyril Everaert, niece and nephew Alyssa and Tyler Goodbrand, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her Granny (Mae) Kusmack, sister Donna Cherpaw and father Cyril Everaert.

Tracey was diagnosed with scleroderma several years ago, which affected her quality of life. When she learned that she was an eligible recipient of a donor set of lungs, she bravely undertook one of the most difficult journeys of her life. Tracey fought hard for a second chance at life and knew the possible risks. Her recovery was nothing short of miraculous before a sudden and shocking stroke tragically affected her chances for a full recovery. She battled valiantly for nearly a week before drifting away from us.

Tracey was as independent as she was stubborn and loved people in her own special way. She was a strong woman who always did her best for herself and others, despite her circumstances. She tried to lift people up and provide positivity even when she was feeling down. She cared deeply about those she chose to surround herself with and will be remembered mostly for her thoughtfulness. She was happiest in an environment that was peaceful and reflective of nature. She loved camping, her cats, photography, food and music. Her greatest love was always her daughter Sara, who will miss her ‘Pooky’ with all her heart. Tracey will be missed more than she ever could have realized and loved more than she knew.

Tracey’s family would like to thank Dr. Yee, Katrina S. and the entire staff of the Lung Transplant team at Vancouver General Hospital. Additional thanks to Dr. Chen and the staff of the NICU , Dr. Yeung and staff of the palliative unit at VGH. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Tracey’s name to the following organizations: Scleroderma Association of BC, BC Lung Association or the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Tracey’s life will take place in Kelowna on Saturday, March 17,2018 at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Rd, at 2:00pm.
