Minnie was predeceased by her loving husband Wally, older sister, Kay, twin brothers, Dick & John, and her younger brother, Cy.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Shirley(Morley), Ted(Grace) and Dale(Jeanne), grandchildren, Lori, Elizabeth, Sandra, Scott, Michelle, Jim, Carol and Rob, and eleven great grandchildren.

Minnie came to Canada from England with her family after the Great War when she was only 6 years old. The family settled in BC and lived on Texada Island for several years. They moved to Vancouver, where she met my father, Wally. After their retirement, they travelled south to Yuma for the winter months, where they golfed and enjoyed their free time. They were snowbirds for about twelve years, until dad was too ill to travel. After dad’s death, mom golfed and really enjoyed life in Surrey. Then mom moved to Qualicum Beach, where she joined St. Stephen’s United Church and the Senior’s Activity Centre and made many friends.

The family would like to say thank you to the special people at The Gardens. They all gave such loving care and comfort to mom and to us.


The celebration of Minnie’s life will be held at St. Stephen’s United Church, 150 Village Way, Qualicum Beach, ?on Saturday, October 27, 2007 at 12:00pm
