Vida passed away peacefully at Qualicum Manor September 24, 2008. Vida was born in Vancouver on July 1, 1910. She was married to Richard Carlson on October 12, 1939.

Vida had many friends through her lifetime living in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver and Granite Bay on Quadra Island.

She was a great story teller and could relate many happy and humourous tales of days gone by. Vida loved animals and had a great attachment to her dog “Randy”.

She will be missed by her family, friends and the staff at Qualicum Manor. Survived by cousin Elva Standish (Ernie) of Qualicum Beach.

She requested no service but a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Many thanks to Dr. Biglow and all the staff at Qualicum Manor who cared for Vida during the past three years.
