Sept 28, 2011.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mother, Mavis. She passed away peacefully with daughter Taryn at her side. Mavis was predeceased by her husband Gordon Todd and survived by her three children; Laurie Mara (Al), Taryn Beveridge (Mal) and Ross Todd (Astra), and a total of seven grandchildren and one great grandchild. Mavis always strived for higher education, creating Garbutt’s Business College and later earning her Masters Of Education in 1982 and teaching at the Medicine Hat College for many years. She loved writing, reading and photography. Gordon and Mavis enjoyed living in Qualicum Beach, BC during their retirement years.

There will be a small Graveside Service at Qualicum Beach Cemetery on October 8th at 11am and a Celebration of Life at Quality Bayside Resort in Parksville, BC, at 1pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Parkinsons Society are greatly appreciated.
