JENKINS: Wayne of Prince George

Posted by on March 21, 2017

Wayne Stephen Jenkins was born on March 30th, 1943 to Terry & Pete Jenkins in New Westminster. He left this earth on March 11th, 2017 at the Gateway Lodge in Prince George, after a long journey with Alzheimer’s complicated recently by Multiple Myeloma.

Wayne grew up in Coquitlam and went to Como Lake High School – Grad 1961. He met his future wife, and the love of his life – Ginny, in grade 9 and they were married in 1964 in Riverside, California. The following year he graduated from UBC with his BA and began his first career as an elementary school teacher.

Wayne went on to teach in BC & Quebec. (Hixon Elementary, Quinson Elementary, Stone Creek Elementary, Terrebonne Heights Elementary.) Upon his return to BC he transitioned to a career in home sales in Kamloops, and then eventually onto Real
Estate back in Prince George. He was active in the community and also served for some years on the local Real Estate Board as well as a term on the National Board. When asked about the difference between teaching and sales he laughed. “They are pretty similar to me, I am just helping people.”

Wayne loved people. Little people, big people. He had many old friends but was never shy to talk to a stranger. He also loved this city, especially UNBC, and despite trying to live a few other places he always returned.

His first son was born in 1966, Andrew, followed three years later by David. The late 60’s and early 70’s were complicated times and Wayne, Janni and Ginny were blessed with two more children in 1971, Michael and Kathryn.

He raised his children with a love for the outdoors. Summers spent at Norman Lake and winters at Purden Mountain. In his later years he took up golfing, not so much for getting ball in the hole but for the time outside with friends.

He will be missed by his friends and family but especially by his 8 grandchildren: Loic, Piper, Gavin, Cara, Charlotte, Hazel, Lillian & Faye.

Wayne’s parents both died of Alzheimer’s and our family has been struggling with this disease since the 1980’s. Research toward this disease is important to the whole family.

Donations to to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC – http://www.alzheimer.ca/bc/ – or UNBC http://www.unbc.ca/giving

A celebration of life will be held at the Prince George Golf & Curling Club (2601 Recplace Drive), Friday, March 17th, 2pm.

Stanley Oliver Jones, 100, of Ottawa, Ontario passed away at the Ottawa General Hospital January 28, 2017. Their professional care, compassion and kindness are truly excellent in the palliative field and were a great comfort to himself and his family. Born in Cardiff, Wales to Emlyn and Violet (Oliver) Jones, he and his wife, May Joyce Jones, became Canadian citizens in 1957. They were married for almost 65 years and she predeceased him in 2010, living to almost 90.
Stanley loved life and laughter and made the best of every situation. He worked as a teacher for the Protestant School Board of Montreal for most of his working life. He taught geography, latin (“aquila non capit muscas” he once offered as words of wisdom to his son, “an eagle does not catch flies”) and, his greatest passion, was teaching computer science. He enjoyed genealogy, playing chess, watching comedies on TV, skiing, cycling, swimming, steam and model trains, whale watching and, most of all, his family. A particular love was his grandchildren, Trevor, Byron and Melanie from his son Russell and, his wife, Julia Sandquist. He liked to say that: “children are the investment and grandchildren are the dividends”.
He is also survived by his son Peter of Montreal, sister Dorothy Reynolds of Cardiff, Wales, his nephews, Oliver Reynolds, Blake Reynolds and his wife Linda (Robson), their children, Mark and Helen, Mark’s children Freddie and Beatrix, Helen’s children Ellie, Joshua and Noah. Stan’s niece, Juliet Reynolds in Cardiff, her children Tabitha and Emma, Tabitha’s child Reuben and Emma’s child Leon as well as in-laws Betty, Stuart, Vanessa and Kirk, now in Australia and in-laws across Canada and Europe.
His sense of humour and delight in bringing a smile to friends, family and acquaintances will be missed.
A remembrance meeting will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2017 in the activities Room at Villagia in the Glebe, 100 Isabella Street, Ottawa, ON K1S 1V5 at 2:00pm.
Donations may be made to the Wild Bird Care Centre.

BRAGANZA: CHERYL of MONTREAL

Posted by on January 30, 2017

images-4

Passed away peacefully after a 12 year battle with multiple myeloma cancer. Survived by three children, Andre, Carlos, and Miguel. A musician with raw unbridled talent, she was offered a scholarship to Juilliard when she was 16. From a young age, she played the piano, the organ, the accordion, and the harmonica with equal versatility. She began to paint in her 20’s and discovered that she was a gifted painter.

She was diagnosed with bone cancer on her 60th birthday and came a hairsbreadth from death four times but fought her way back to life each time. She gained confidence and developed her painting talent with exponential speed. When asked why, she answered “I’m in a race against time. I have so much to say and so much more to bring into the world…” In her last five years of life, she produced more artwork and published more writing than she produced in the previous 20 years.

In 2008, she was named Montreal’s Woman of the Year for using her art as a tool to fight for women’s rights all over the world. She was then elected President of the prestigious Women’s Art Society of Montreal, which she grew dramatically.

Confronting the reality of death enabled her to blossom with unlimited creativity, courage and joy. The more broken her body became, the more she painted soaring images of birds, and butterflies, and dancing women. And when the cancer paralyzed her body, she painted tapestries of colour and love with her face, her voice and her mind.

She was never alone, surrounded by a closely knit group of friends who grew to love her (and each other). She died peacefully in her sleep after seeing her three children; her soul soaring to the beautiful places reflected in her art.

The family will receive condolences at 1070 St-Mathieu, Montreal, H3H2S8 (rear entrance on Joseph Manseau) on Dec 18 and 19, 2pm-9pm. In lieu of flowers, consider a financial donation to the Montreal Women’s Art Society to help publish her work.

October 7th, 1967 – November 25th, 2016.
It is with overwhelming sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved James. A family man with a tremendous sense of humour, he was always there for those that needed him, even strangers he had met moments ago. He always made sure that those he cared about were themselves well cared for, giving generously of himself to make people feel a little better about their days. We will remember his tours of Toronto neighbourhoods he gave to family and friends, pointing out each house he had visited during his long career in the real estate business. He was had a profound sense of justice, which he used to make sure that things were right in his little corner of the world, through his involvement at several non-profits. James is survived by his wife, Cynthia, and two children, as well as by siblings, parents, many friends and colleagues, all of whom miss him dearly.

If you wish to honour James’s memory, try making the world a better place today. And please consider a donation to the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, an organization he cared about deeply: https://ccla.org/give/.

James, we will miss your hearty laugh, your passionate devotion to the causes you love and your always dynamic presence at the dinner table. We will always love you.

JOHNSON, Rev. Robert Harold of Bakersfield, California

Posted by on August 23, 2016

Johnson Robert for webOn the evening of August 19 in Cobourg, Ontario, Rev. Robert Johnson passed into the presence of the Lord, surrounded by family. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jean M. Johnson, his sister Shirley (Robert) Taitinger, and brother Wallace (Ellen) Johnson, and his four children––Van (Karen) Johnson, Jan (Dan) Johnson-Theroux, Jeff (Donna) Johnson, and Jennifer (Clark) Jensen––and nine grandchildren. He is predeceased by brothers James and Eldon. Robert Johnson was born in Pembroke, Ontario, on May 15, 1931. Pastor Johnson came to Montreal in 1960 to pastor Verdun Pentecostal Church (later Trinity Pentecostal Church), where he was joined by his brother Wallace in 1963. By 1962, his influence was being felt beyond the church walls. It began with the popularity of Dial-A-Message, a sixty-second recording that, at its peak, was getting about 5,000 callers a day. A radio executive concluded that if 5,000 people were interested in listening to his recorded message, then they would listen to him on the radio. And so began 22 years hosting religious talk shows, first on CKGM, and later CFOX and CFCF. The show was “Ask the Pastor.” This radio exposure led to his appointment as chaplain for the Montreal Expos baseball team. It also opened up doors for him to raise money for charitable endeavours, including the establishment of a youth home, Teen Haven, to house youth coming through the juvenile detention system­­­­. He was still Executive Director at Teen Haven at the time of his death. His annual Christmas radio telethons to raise money to provide Christmas baskets for the needy became a fixture of the holiday season. He went on to pastor in Edmonton and then in Bakersfield, California. When in California, he co-founded Global Family Care Network that works in at-risk communities around the world with an emphasis upon girl-child trafficking.  The funeral service will be held in the Tabernacle on the grounds of Lakeshore Pentecostal Camp, 1405 Pentecostal Road, Cobourg, Ontario at 1 pm on Friday, August 26. Reception to follow. Visitation will be at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King St. E., Cobourg, Thursday, August 25, from 2-4 and 7-9. Those wishing may make a memorial donation to Global Family Care Network. Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.

MUIR, Fraser Alexander of Wasaga Beach

Posted by on July 13, 2016

Mr. Muir (2)Fraser was born in Westville, Nova Scotia, on June 27, 1924, and died at home in Wasaga Beach, ON, surrounded by his family and all of our love on July 7, 2016. Survived by his dear wife of 62 years Joan Marie (nee MacDonald) of Sydney NS, and his five children; Donald (Heather) of Toronto, ON, Sheona Ayles (John) of Quesnel, BC, Ellen (Dan Novosad) of Rosemere, QC, Sandy (Heather) of Calgary, AB and Brenda (Dalton Wenstob) of Edmonton, AB, and ten grandchildren, Heather, Jennice, Alex, Andrew, Jenna, Quinn, Riley, Fraser, Saoirse, Tobias and great grandson, Carson. Also survived by his niece and nephew Vicki (Nelson) Dengler of Gentry, AR and Robert Muir, of Dublin CA. Fraser joined the RCAF at the age of 18 and served as a mid upper gunner on the Lancaster completing 36 sorties with 50 Squadron in Bomber Command. After he returned, he graduated from St. Francis Xavier University where he met the love of his life via a snowball on St. F.X. Day, Dec 3rd, 1947. Hired by Air Canada in Halifax, he spent the bulk of his 30 year career in Montreal living in Rosemere, QC, for 44 years where he served on town council for 23 of those years. He called Wasaga Beach home for the past 13 years, a setting where he routinely exercised his passion for photography capturing sunsets as God intended for them to be seen. He was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and the Royal Canadian Legion, RCAF Wing 441, and served on countless committees and executive bodies of community and church organizations, including the National Executive for several years with the Air Canada Pionairs. His most notable accolades for his gift of always putting others’ needs before his own are being among the first of inductees into the Hall of Thought at St. F. X. University where he was described as “a man whose creeds are sharing and self-sacrifice”. He was also recognized by the Canadian government with the Citation for Citizenship Award, as well as, being presented with the Legion of Honour from the Republic of France. His flight to heaven was direct – God’s reward for having dedicated his life to the service of his country, community, church and family. His dry wit and sense of humour meant many a laugh was shared throughout his life and he continued to make us laugh in his final days. A world traveller, a gifted storyteller, a deep listener, a magnificient dancer with only one dance partner. Godspeed, Dad, your life and love changed the world. Friends will be received on Monday, July 11, 2016 at Carruthers & Davidson Funeral Home – Wasaga Chapel, 509 River Road West, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Funeral Mass to be held on Tuesday, July 12th, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Noel Chabanel Catholic Church, 133 Dunkerron Avenue, Wasaga Beach. Thanks to Doctors Holloway, Lisi, Pressnail, and the St. Elizabeth Nurses and PSWs. Your compassion during this sacred journey for Fraser matters. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Campbell House Hospice in Collingwood, Ontario, are welcome, though an act of kindness in his name would be equally appreciated.  For further information and to sign the Book of Memories, log on to www.carruthersdavidson.com
