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.

Obituary of REYNOLDS: Tracey Lea of Kelowna Formerly of Winnipeg

Posted by on March 16, 2018

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.

Posted by on March 6, 2018

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/ .

TOMPKINS, CORKY – Clitheroe (Corky) Wellington Tompkins at the age of 87 fell asleep in death to await a resurrection to a paradise earth. He loved this hope and talked about it to anyone with a listening ear. Knowing Corky meant you knew of his favourite place on earth, Biscotasing.
