floor under the tutelage of Sister Frances. She is survived by her children,
John (Barbara Alix, Johnny and Jillian), Sam (Heather Jeremy (Victoria Jane
and Rylee), Rebecca (Chris), and Carly), Mary Jane (Rob- Matthew and Graham)

Roast beef with her delicious pies from berries she picked herself, made up
for the slightly overcooked vegetables. Sadie's artistic talents were
evident in her finely cruelled tapestry, exquisite perennial garden and
passion for bright colours. Many were the recipient of bouquets from her
beautiful garden. She volunteered happily for many years with St. Vincent's,
loved playing bridge and enjoyed entertaining her friends. Her many quirks
included saving every piece of wrapping paper, all birthday cards, photos
which she proudly displayed and numerous letters which she re-read often,
and made sure that everyone else had a chance to read as well . Sadie was
well loved by her family and many friends, and will be fondly remembered.

BAKER KAREN (nee BASS) December 31st, 1949 - September 2nd, 2007 It is with
a heavy heart and great sadness that our family would like to announce the
peaceful passing of our beloved Karen on September 2nd, 2007, at home, at
the age of 57, after her courageous battle with a rare lung disease. Karen
passed quietly in her sleep with her husband by her side. Karen was the
devoted daughter of Olga and James Bass (predeceased); loving wife of Tom
Baker; cherished sister to Christopher Bass (CJ) and Katherine Brand (nee
Bass) and sister-in-law to Scott Brand; and a loving proud Aunt to Alexander
and Laura Brand. In addition, she also leaves behind her favorite Aunt
Stella (Walter) Sturko, of Brandon, Manitoba; and an Uncle Paul Parkolub
(Aunt Gloria) also of Brandon, Manitoba. On September 1st Karen was
overjoyed to be able to celebrate a birthday dinner for her husband Tom,
which also included her immediate family. This attendance was vitally
important to Karen as she willed the strength to make the dinner extra
special. Karen was born and grew up in Brandon, Manitoba and eventually
moved to Vancouver, BC in 1976 where she met her soul mate, Tom, later
marrying him in 1982. Tom and Karen celebrated a loving relationship for
over twenty-five years. Karen fought a hard battle against a rare lung
disease and continued to struggle to live. She remained on oxygen for the
last seven years before succumbing to her illness. Karen was a warm,
generous, fun loving person who enjoyed her family, friends and life. She
will always be known for her generous spirit and gracious heart. Karen was a
giver to others and will always be missed. Karen captivated family, friends,
acquaintances, and strangers with her genuineness and generosity, her
strength and constancy, her deep caring for others and her loving nature.
Her brilliant smile will long be remembered by everyone. The family would
like to give thanks to all of the nurses at Burnaby General Hospital for
their extraordinary care and devotion during her stays at this hospital and
to Dr. Davidicus Wong and Dr. John Martyn for their special care and
attention. There will be no formal service. In lieu of flowers donations may
be made to the B.C. Lung Association.

BOYCE Robert William "Bob": after 82 years of living life to the fullest,
Bob passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 4th, 2007. The family would
like to thank the wonderfully caring nursing staff of Ward Three, and
particularly, the Transition Ward of the Penticton Regional Hospital for
making his final weeks as rich as possible and for putting up with his
cheekiness. Bob was born in London, England July 12, 1925. During WWII he
served with the RAF in the Middle East and Germany. It was in Germany that
he met his British bride of 58 years, Patricia. In 1957 Bob, Pat and elder
daughter, Christine came to Canada. During this time in the frozen wasteland
he was blessed with his second daughter, Elaine. In 1965 the family moved to
Burnaby. Bob worked for several credit unions and finished his career
managing a thriving Pacific Press Credit Union. Upon retirement Bob stole
Pat away to Osoyoos where they soaked up the sun until three years ago, when
they moved to Penticton. His many wonderful trips to various places in the
world with Pat, were only eclipsed by the joy Bob gained by spending time
with family and friends. He was always the life of the party ensuring that
everyone enjoyed him or herself. Bob is predeceased by his parents and
survived by his wife, Pat; his daughters Christine (Brian), Elaine (Bob);
grandchildren Chelsea (Joe), Alan, Adam, and great-grandson Morgan. He will
be fondly remembered and sadly missed by his family, many friends and his
third daughter Nancy and her family. Friends can join the family to say
farewell to Bob on Monday, September 10th, 2007 at 2:00pm in the social room

DEWONCK Gilberte Paule It is with great sadness that we announce the passing
of Gilberte in Vernon at the grand age of 95 years. Predeceased by her
husband Felix in 1998, she is survived by and greatly loved by son Bernard,
daughter-in-law Brenda and grandchildren Justin (Tricia) and Danielle. Born
in Mons, Belgium, in 1912, she travelled to the then Belgian Congo in 1938
to be married, and lived on a cinchona plantation managed by her husband.
They immigrated to Canada in 1948, settling first in Summerland, B.C.,
eventually purchasing an orchard in Okanagan Centre, which they operated
until the early 1970's. During this time, in addition to orchard related
activities, which included sorting fruit in a fruit packing plant, Gilberte
was active in regional arts groups and events, as well as substitute
teaching in high school French classes. During this time she was also a
mentor to many French teachers and students in the region. She and Felix
subsequently became translators for the federal government, she with
postings at the Science Council of Canada in Ottawa and the Canadian Armed
Forces in Chilliwack. They returned to the family home in the late 1970's
where they continued translating on a contract basis, then retired to Vernon
in 1991. Gilberte was an avid reader and maintained a keen and worldly
interest in the social, cultural and political issues of the day throughout
her life, even as her sight, hearing and mobility became increasingly
restricted. She had an always-present concern for the well-being and
happiness of her family, taking great pride in their accomplishments and
suffering with them in their trials. She will be sorely missed by many
friends as well. The family would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to
the staff of Vernon Hospital's Polson Care Residence and Dr. David Arnold
for their care and compassion in Gilberte's final days. Many thanks to her
care givers for their devotion to her care, and to the faithful friends who
visited or telephoned to bring the outside world to her when she could no
longer experience it for herself. A celebration of Gilberte's life will take
place in Vernon at a date to be announced later. In lieu of flowers
donations can be made to the Vernon Hospital Foundation or the Lake Country
Performing Arts Society. Contact Bernard at for further
information.

FRASER Christine (nee Crozier), age 76, died suddenly on August 17, 2007.
Born in London, England in 1930, Christine age 9 and her brother first
arrived in Canada as evacuees during World War II. After returning to London
in 1945, she convinced her family to immigrate to Canada because it was so
"green". Christine quickly became an avid snow skier and water-skier in her
twenties and later in life, she became a lifeguard, long distance swimmer,
and long distance runner. She spent many years travelling the world and
sailing the coast of BC with her husband Martin of 55 years and her two
children. Christine was a devoted wife and mother; she worked tirelessly,
gave unselfishly, and was forever showering us with kisses and hugs. A
music-lover, she played classical guitar and there were many "sing-songs" at
bedtime and by the seaside. Self-educated; she studied English and Biology.
With reverence, she embraced nature, most passionately - the ocean; she
believed in "the web of life" and practiced environmentalism long before its
time. She had a "soft spot" for all creatures, and was always rescuing
anything in distress. Christine loved to laugh and have fun, and she had a
down to earth view of the world. She possessed a deep and private
spirituality, unfailing integrity, and rarest of all grace. Christine was
loving and kind, tender and gentle throughout her entire life. Her
crossing-over has left us broken hearted, but she will always be a part of
our lives. She is predeceased by her brother Edward and survived by her
proud family: daughter Kerry (Devin), son Scott (Mariza), sister-in-law
Dona, nephews Christopher and Colin (Michelle), niece Vicki (Wilf), and
grand nieces Ryleigh, Haley, and Felicia. Mummy we love you "thousands".

Martin left home in his twenties initially to travel the world, but arriving
in Vancouver, he discovered snow skiing and water-skiing, and met his future
wife, Christine. They were married at Christ Church Cathedral in June of
1952 and began a ten-year honeymoon spending winters snow skiing from
Seymour to Sun Valley, and summers camping and waterskiing at Lake Whatcom.
One of Martin's most cherished trips was when the couple spent six months
skiing in Europe, mainly Austria and Italy, where Martin competed in
downhill. Martin worked as a journeyman electrician for BC Electric for
several years and the family moved to West Vancouver. He left the trade to
start an auto-mechanics business and Shell station at Burrard and Davie that
he ran for many years. In his thirties, Martin began sailing and fishing; he
bought the Muri Tai, a 38' sailboat, and took his family on summer vacations
in the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound. He also took his family on
Hawaiian vacations, of which there are many fond memories. As well as making
trips back to his native New Zealand, he continued to travel extensively
with his wife and the two of them chartered sailboats so they could explore
the Caribbean, French Polynesia, and Fiji. In later life, Martin bought a
small cabin cruiser so he and Christine could continue to go boating. Martin
will be remembered as an excellent provider for his family. He is survived
by his family: daughter Kerry (Devin), son Scott (Mariza), brother Douglas
(Carol), nieces Cheryl-Anne (David) and Diane, nephews Craig (Karen) and
Bryce (Monica).

GRIFFIN Eileen Amy Griffin Born September 18th, 1913 in Vancouver, British
Columbia died August 28, 2007. She lived through a large part of the major
changes in British Columbia. Raised as a child while Canada fought its first
war and through the 1920's when her father re-established himself as a house
builder after the economic crash of 1913. Her family was returned to hard
times by the depression of the 1930's while her father tried many different
schemes to make money. It was WW II that offered Eileen the chance she hoped
for to see the larger world and while she desperately wanted to be shipped
overseas her assignment was Ottawa where she was training other women
soldiers. Skills she learned there her grandchildren are convinced were used
on them when they went to grandma's for holidays. It was during the war
period that she met her husband John Griffin, (Jack) and before they could
get married he was sent overseas. On Jack's return they were married, moved
to Jack's hometown of Teulon, Manitoba where Jack took up farming and then
into business. Patricia, Susan, Richard and Gerald were born during this
time. All seemed well but as was the earlier pattern for Eileen's life hard
times returned with the unexpected death of Jack leaving Eileen to raise the
children. She chose to return to the coast where her family was and went
into business with her sister Florence whose husband had also passed away.
They established a women's clothing business, Charm Ladies Wear that enabled
them to successfully raise their children. Eileen retired in 1978 and moved
to Kelowna where she enjoyed many happy times and visits with her family.
She came through this life always cheerful and believing that one should
never be afraid to try anything. She loved to tease others and argue just
for the fun of having a good discussion. In her last few years she could
still be counted on to come alive at a dinner party arguing and challenging
others. Her 9 grandchildren and countless friends will all miss her
wonderful spirit. There will be an open house to appreciate Eileen's life
and all she brought to it on Saturday, September 8th.

HAHN Peter 8.11.1923 - 28.8.2007After a short struggle with cancer, Peter
died at home with his cat, Macek, and his family at his side.He and his
younger brother Frank, the Cambridge economist, were born in Berlin. Their
parents, Arnold and Maria Hahn had their roots in the Jewish communities,
German and Czech speaking respectively, in what is now the Czech Republic.
In 1934 the family moved back to Prague, where Peter attended an English
high school. Once again keeping a step ahead of the Nazi tide, the family
emigrated to London in 1938. In 1941, Peter started his university studies
at Swansea. His studies were interrupted a year later, when he enlisted in
the Czech squadron of the RAF. He returned to Prague after the war, although
most of his family made their home in Britain. In medical school, he met
Nadezda Novozamska, who became his wife in 1948. In 1949, they had their
first son, Gena, in 1954 their second, Martin. In 1953, Peter started his
career as a medical researcher at the Physiological Institute of the
Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. He specialized in the physiology and
biochemistry of infant nutrition, in particular enzymes and the metabolism
of fats. He did pioneering work in what is now a major research area: the
effect of early nutrition on later development and health. His work was
internationally recognized and widely cited and, in 1966, he was invited to
spend four months visiting Stanford University. When the Soviet invasion of
Czechoslovakia forced yet a fourth emigration upon him in 1968, he wrote
half a dozen postcards to colleagues at various institutions and received 18
offers of positions from universities around the world. The offers included
ones from institutions like MIT and Oxford University. Of all the countries
that the Hahns could have chosen, Canada offered the best chance of a
peaceful, prosperous life for a family of immigrants in possession of one
suitcase of personal belongings and 500 pounds sterling. Peter accepted the
position UBC offered and, as of October 5th, 1968, Vancouver has been his
and his family's home. His work at UBC's Centre for Developmental Medicine
continued to bring him worldwide recognition, his natural pedagogical talent
made him an outstanding course instructor and graduate supervisor. One of
his greatest legacies is a large group of scientists who trained in his lab
and continue to advance the areas of research he helped found. Peter Hahn
was a fellow of The Royal Society of Canada, The Academy of Sciences of the
Czech Republic and The American Society for Nutritional Sciences. Since his
retirement in 1989, he and Nada lived a quiet life in West Vancouver with
their cat, Macek, visiting the Czech Republic frequently. His devotion to
Nada was all the greater in recent years, after her Alzheimer's disease
diagnosis was confirmed.Peter was a man of great wit and charm, a voracious
reader, a steadfast friend to many people, and a casual one to many more (as
well as to dogs, cats, lemurs and other animals he met). He had an
insatiable curiosity, disdained convention, despised pretense, and
categorically refused to get old and set in his ways. His humour could bite,
his social informality could offend; but he was one of the kindest, gentlest
people to walk this earth. He leaves behind a great void, many warm
memories, and a central mystery: how could a man who couldn't make a cup of
coffee without getting coffee grounds into every kitchen drawer be so
successful at running a complex biochemical laboratory?He is survived by his
wife of 59 years, Nada; his brother Frank and his wife Dorothy; his son Gena
and his wife Dominique Sotteau; and his son Martin, his wife Kathleen Akins,
and their children Majka and Lev. Macek looks for him every day. At Peter's
request, there will be no service. Please do not send flowers but think of a
charity instead: cancer research, Amnesty International, Plan Canada. His
family can be contacted at (604) 926-1602, , or hahn@
iro.umnotreal.ca .

MATHESON Captain Gordon (Gordy). Passed away July 21th, 2007 in his home in
Naramata B.C., at the age of 78 with his daughters by his side. Nine months
ago he lost the love of his life, Gretchen Matheson (nee Mathers). She was
the woman who gave him wings to fly; a joy they shared for all of their days
together. Gordon was a man of great integrity, honesty, strength, and had a
deep love for his family. Growing up on the farm in Granum, Alberta, Gordon
overcame many obstacles to fulfill his childhood dream of becoming a pilot.
Not only did he reach his goal, but he distinguished himself in corporate
business aviation. During his thirty-eight years as a commercial pilot,
Gordon flew for a variety of national companies including Pacific Petroleum,
West Coast Transmission, West Coast Energy, BC Tel, Woodwards and Medivac.
He logged approximately 10,000 hours of flying time of which 8500 were in
the left scat. During his most memorable years as Frank McMahon's executive
pilot, Gordon regaled his family with stories about flights with
personalities such as Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Julio Iglesias. He had a
wonderful life, blessed by his wife and his deeply caring friends and
family. Gordon is survived by his three loving daughters, Renee, Jane and
Jodi, as well as his older brother, Frank. Predeceased by his parents,

MORRISON Dave (Sonny)January 20th, 1929 - August 10th, 2007It is with great
sadness that we announce the passing of Daniel David (Sonny) Morrison who
passed away August 10, 2007 at the age of 78 years. He had seen his health
decline considerably over the past few years after pulling through a serious
cardiac condition and could no longer continue with us. Sonny is survived by
his wife of 49 years, Lauraine. He also leaves behind three children:
Carrie, Scott and Brenda and husband Daniel Boulin. Seven grandchildren will
also miss their grandfather: Justine, Elliott, Graeme, Tamara, Kati, Jericho
and Carter. Sonny also will be missed by his sister Ann (Babe) Boscariol and
brother-in-law Willie and their family from Squamish, BC. He was predeceased
by his parents Daniel David and Katherine Morrison as well as his older
sister Ruth Pepper. Sonny was born on January 20, 1929 in Squamish, BC. Both
Sonny and his father would work for the railway that eventually became known
as the British Columbia Railway. He retired from his job as a Train Engineer
in 1994. He was a very avid fisherman, outdoorsman and a great fan of the
game of hockey. He attended virtually every Intermediate and Junior hockey
game in his 43 years of living in Williams Lake, and could always be counted
on for a synopsis of what he observed. He was very proud of his children and
grandchildren and their accomplishments in both education and athletics and
was often seen sharing treasured photographs of his grandchildren, even with
friends he had just met! There wasn't anyone that Sonny wouldn't talk to. He
would often spend much of his latter years in life sharing his stories and
experiences with the many people who wandered into his life. It is sure that
ÃfNorm from CheersÃ" was inspired with his friendliness from Sonny Morrison.
He leaves behind many great friends. Clifford and John will miss his banter,
they spent many hours plotting and laughing together. The locals at Tim
