images-4

Mona Robertson, 93, of White Rock, BC, formerly of Surrey and Kelowna BC, died peacefully on February 16, 2018.

Born December 1, 1923 in Vernon, BC, she was the daughter of the late Morris and Albertine Quebec (Martell).

Mona joins her late husband and love of her life, Donald Wright Robertson. Mona and Major Robertson (RCAF) met while attending the University of British Columbia (UBC). They began their romance by meeting under the Birk’s Clock in downtown Vancouver towards the end of the Second World War. Not only did she graduate with a B.A. from UBC, in later life, she completed a second Bachelor’s degree from Simon Fraser University and attended Okanagan College’s Fine Arts Program.

Mona is survived by her three daughters, Andree Laval (Robert), Laura Robertson Peacock (William) and Robin Robertson (Scott); four grandchildren Grace Laval (Rick), Sarah Robertson (Chris), Katherine Peacock and David Peacock; and, two great grandchildren, Julianna and Alison.

Our mother was an artist. She was an amazing seamstress, creating all our school clothing, upholstering our furniture and creating beautiful Vogue pattern fashions. She adored painting, drawing, sculpting, and many other artistic media. Mom was very musically inclined, singing with the UBC band during the 1940’s and played piano for her entire life. She also was a dancer, and in later years, took pleasure embarrassing her daughter(s) dancing down the shopping isles to the canned music during the weekly grocery shopping trip.

We wish to thank all of the staff at Weatherby 1 Residential Care (Peace Arch Hospital) for their amazing care of our mother during her battle with Alzheimer’s disease. A private family memorial is planned. Those wishing may make memorial donations to the Canadian Mental Health Association https://cmha.bc.ca/get-involved/donate/ .

DONALDSON: Judith of Mississauga

Posted by on March 1, 2018

Born in New Zealand on October 10, 1928, she married Gordon and emigrated to Canada with their three children, and passed peacefully at Boca Raton Hospice by the Sea February 21, 2018. Judith is survived by her children Stewart, Andrée (Sandy), and David (Dolores) and her grandchildren Danielle, Evan and Cameron.
She had a passion for travel and adventure, travelling to England by ship just after graduating nursing school and again for her honeymoon, this time by airplane. She always considered travel to be a great education and the family benefited from that education. When her eldest, Stewart, graduated she supported him in establishing his boat importing business, an adventure shared by the whole family. To celebrate Andrée’s graduation from university, mother and daughter went off to England for a mini version of Mom’s grand adventure. In her early years Judith spent many hours riding her horse, Scythian, competing in steeplechases, hunts and even riding Scythian down to the beach for an afternoon swim; a love of horses that she passed on to David. Judith enjoyed a long and rewarding career as a Nurse, both in New Zealand and Canada. In retirement, she and Gordon would lead trips abroad, sharing their love of travel. She was one of the founders of the Mississauga Chapter of Probus and remained active with them until 2011.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Arlene Berry on January 23, 2018 in Abbotsford, BC. After a lengthy illness, she passed away peacefully with her loving and devoted husband Al by her side.

Arlene (Hunter) Berry was born April 28, 1941 in Alberta, the daughter of the late Theodore (Ted) and Sarah Hunter. She was raised on their family farm near Edwell, Alberta and always loved sharing stories of life on the farm. Arlene always had a smile for everyone and loved a good game and a good laugh. She was very proud of her many years spent working for the Hudson Bay Company at several locations. Over the years, Arlene lived in many places throughout Alberta and BC , but most of all she treasured her memories of time spent at their winter home in Arizona, where she will be missed by many friends. She was also active in the First Baptist Church of Sun Lakes in Sun Lakes, AZ, and Northview Community Church in Abbotsford, BC.

Arlene was known for her positive attitude, her independence and her willingness to lend a hand. Arlene loved her Edmonton Oilers and was able to be there for many of their biggest moments in the 80’s, and her fiery passion showed most when her team was playing. Arlene loved music and loved to sing and in her last years it was the music that gave us the ability to connect with her. She maintained a happiness that shone through her entire illness.

She will be deeply missed by her devoted husband of 36 years, Albert (Al) W. Berry who provided such amazing care for her through her final years. She leaves behind a beloved daughter Valerie (Johanson) Lester (Ed) of Red Deer, AB. She loved her five grandchildren dearly and will be missed by Tyler and Sara Lester of Red Deer, AB, as well as Ryan, Jared and William Berry of Hillsborough, NB. She also will be deeply missed by her stepchildren, Kevin Berry (Brenda) of Hillsborough, NB and Kenda Berry (Eric Lavoie) of Saint-Édouard-de-Kent, NB, as well as her sister Loretta (Bunny) Burling (Wayne) of Okotoks, AB, and many special nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her first husband, Charles (Chuck) Johanson.

There will be no visiting hours or funeral, but celebrations of life will take place with family and friends at later dates. For those who choose to make a memorial in Arlene’s memory, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC would be greatly appreciated.

The family would like to say a special thank you to the staff and residents at MSA Manor and several special friends for the care given to Arlene (and to Al). The support and kindness shown was greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

SAUNDERS: Tyron of Toronto Formerly of Kingston and Newmarket

Posted by on January 23, 2018

images-4

Tyron Antonio Wilhelmy Saunders, born August 15, 1988, passed on from this world on December 31, 2017, in Toronto, from an asthma attack, at the age of 29. He is survived by his son, Kaedence Ward; mother, Janice Saunders Eaton; stepfather, Murray Eaton; brothers Liam, Keegan, and Kiefer Eaton; grandmother Mary Saunders, and grandfather Gary Saunders: his Devon Rex cat Kessel, who will now be living with his son and mother Niki Ward. Ty will be missed by hundreds of other friends and family members and love of his life, Jade Miller, who inspired Ty be a better person.
Tyron was a supernova and shines brightly, making the world a more magical place both for the time he was in it and for years to come in the future. A familiar face on the downtown scene in Toronto (and back in Kingston), Tyron was recognizable from a distance, often with green dreadlocks, covered in artistic tattoos from face down, and wearing daring and noticeable ensembles. He loved fiercely and deeply: both the people in his life and the things that inspired him. A lover of fashion, science, graffiti, hip-hop, and adventure, amongst other passions, he couldn’t wait to share his inspirations with the world as soon as they caught hold of him. He could turn any idea into a plan and an adventure, and could make excitement out of what seemed like nothing. From a distance, he could seem larger than life, but those who knew him close-up were touched by his intensity and realness. The relationships he forged with others, from those he only saw a few times to close friends, family members, and partners, were unforgettable and frequently perspective-changing. Often magnetically compelling, Tyron was a man who was as completely unapologetically “himself” as one could be.
Tyron was born in Mexico City, and grew up mostly in Toronto, Newmarket, and Kingston, Ontario. He began his adult life in Kingston, and moved to Toronto in 2009. He embraced life in both places, connecting with many, and is well-loved in both cities. Some of the highlights of his life include the birth of his son Kaedence, in Kingston in 2008; beginning his own self-designed clothing line in Toronto in 2013; and traveling internationally in the last few years, exploring new places with a powerful enthusiasm. In recent years, he had begun a spiritual journey, becoming vegetarian, diving into science books and nature documentaries, and reflecting on the world and his role in it. Often talking circles around those surrounding him, his intelligence and insatiable curiosity guided him on this journey.
Tyron was and continues to be deeply loved by his friends and family. The world feels a bit more empty without him, but he lives on in every part of the world he touched. He made a hat reading “too weird to live, too rare to die” and it is this contradiction that marks his life and passing: brighter than seems possible, it is also impossible for him to really be gone. The world lost a rare jewel on December 31, 2017, but he shines on. We love you Tyron, always gold.
A celebration of life was held on January 6, 2018, one of the coldest days in years at -22 degrees Celsius, at a former Buddhist temple in downtown Toronto.

Erna cherished her grandchildren and was always eager to share with them how to garden or to make a craft or to cook. A favorite memory was her willingness to let her grandchildren make breakfast at the cost of a dozen eggs to make 2 sunny side ups. Or making a special garden just for them. Or taking them on adventures in the woods to collect mushrooms or craft supplies.

Erna was always up for a new experience and at age 77 she joined her family on a vacation which had her walking up pyramids, snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins.

She lived her life to the fullest.

Her easy smile and warm heart will be missed.

River Park Gardens was Erna’s last home. Her family will always be grateful for the love and care given to their mother.

Reise Mit Liebe

RAMRATTAN: Bob of Winnipeg Formerly of Trinidad

Posted by on January 21, 2018

With his loving family by his side, Bob’s journey on this earth came to an end on November 6, 2017. Bob was a loving husband to Dianne and proud father to Ric (Sue – Alysha and Skot, Angela and Adam) and Alisa (Christine – Michael and Matthew). He was an adoring brother to Merle (Peter), Mona (Ashley), Ray (Sandra), Rudy (Sally), Christine (Ben), Gobin (Hema), Santi, Doolin and Dhano; and proud uncle to his 13 nieces and nephews. Bob had so many wonderful friends in his lifetime, in Canada and in Trinidad. Bob was born in Jordan Hill, Trinidad and came to Canada in 1960. On that first day he met his “wife to be” at the Java Shop. Not wasting any time, he asked her on a date to a cricket match at the City Park the next day, and the rest was history. Bob and Dianne raised their family in Winnipeg, MB and Kamloops, BC. Bob’s career spanned over 40 years working for the Province of Manitoba’s Department of Education and Northern Affairs, Red River College and Caribou College. What mattered most to Bob was his family, friends and the promotion of quality education and a meaningful job. He dedicated his own life to learning and educating others, first with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Winnipeg, followed by a Masters of Education from The University of Saskatchewan. He was a pioneer of adult education in Manitoba, bringing “made to fit” training programs to many rural and First Nations communities. His most prized accomplishment was the FRED project (Fund for Rural Economic Development) in the 1960s and 70s, where he had the chance to initiate and develop adult education training programs for the benefit of Manitoba’s Interlake region. In his final hours, Bob said “I had a good life and I will always be with you, in your hearts forever.
