PERCY: (EJ) Elwood John of Langley, BC Formerly of Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, Saskatoon, Weyburn, Regina, Fairlight

Posted by on December 20, 2015

images-4It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend on Friday, December 11, 2015 at the age of 91, at his residence in Langley, BC.
Born in the small rural town of Fairlight, Saskatchewan he helped work the farm before adventuring to work in the forest industry on Vancouver Island before returning to the prairies and marrying his life mate Ilene Rice. They followed the propane industry around Saskatchewan before moving to Abbotsford, BC in 1964, with sons Darryl & Kim and daughter Debra.
Predeceased by infant son Robin, his parents John and Clara Percy, brothers Lawrence, Earl, Maurice and Elmer and sisters Elva, Audrey, Eileen and Vera, he is survived by son Darryl (Edie), son Kim (Judy), daughter Debra, grandchildren Robin, Jesse, Jena, Josh, Kristen, Kody and Katlin, great grandchildren Kinga, Brittan, Trinity, John and Brea, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Dad was a dedicated family patriarch and an influential businessman during his years in the Propane Gas Industry. EJ’s Sunday morning breakfast grills were legendary and always open to any family and friends who could get out of bed for the 8:00 am serving and there were many 1st timers that were happy they did. His Barbeque expertise was unquestioned and his salmon or roast beef dinners brought all the family home on a regular basis.
EJ enjoyed his retirement weather it was time on their hobby farm, trips to over-winter in Mesa, Arizona or chasing after his grandchildren as they pursued their favorite sporting activities. His days spent on the Fraser River fishing for Sockeye with Darryl and Josh were always a favorite topic and special memory.
At Dad’s request there will not be a private memorial. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made in his memory to the Dr. Stuart Pavilion at the Mission General Hospital.

FORTOWSKY: Gloria Rose of Valemount, BC

Posted by on October 10, 2015

images-4Gloria Rose Fortowsky (nee Fetter) was born on June 8, 1939 in Trail, BC and grew up on a farm close to Leroy, SK. She was a joyful person who loved gardening, singing, teaching, mountains, and people – particularly children and especially grandchildren and (very recently) great-grandchildren. She devoted her life to connecting with and caring for others as a teacher; a friend; a dedicated Catholic; an active community volunteer; and a loving wife, parent and grandparent. Gloria started teaching in 1958. After marrying in 1960, Gloria and her husband Arnold opened the first school in Southend, SK in 1960 and went on to spend much of their teaching careers working in small, often isolated, northern Canadian communities. After 45+ years of teaching, Gloria retired “for good” and she and Arnold moved to Valemount, BC where they had lived intermittently since 1990. In retirement, Gloria spent many hours gardening, keeping up with friends and family, and planning (and going on) travel adventures. Her generosity was well known; many, many people have plants that were given to them by Gloria, who regularly ended up with far too many as a result of her enthusiasm for planting.

Gloria is survived by her husband, Arnold; her children Keith (Mary Ann McGrath), Grace, Elaine, Shirley (Donald) Giroux, and Carolyn (Brock) Dagenais; her grandchildren Bridget, Sarah, Sydney, John, Rygel, Remi, Ain, Neven, Rozlyn, and Katica; her great-grandson, Felix; her siblings Sr. Bernadine Fetter, Gerry (Gill) Fetter, and Rodney (Ruth) Fetter; and her sister-in-law Diane Fetter. She is predeceased by her daughter Angela and her brother Gordon.

Gloria was much loved by her family and friends and is dearly missed since the automotive accident that took her life on September 28, 2015. Celebrations in memory of her took place on Monday, October 5 and Tuesday, October 6, 2015. She has been laid to rest in earshot of the playground and full view of the mountains in Valemount, BC.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Catholic Missions in Canada (https://donation.cmic.info/) or Chalice Canada (http://www.chalice.ca/donate) in Gloria’s honour.
