Gail Blagdon and Susanne Davies, two members of the Woof Pack dog walking group, stand next to a tree that was cut down in Berry Park. They say vandals are destroying what was a beautiful spot for families. Davies said the dog walking group is not intimidated, because they usually walk as a group. “But you see a senior couple, walking hand in hand and suddenly they get yelled at and sworn at by these people ... it’s sad,” she said. The Abbotsford Police have been called in on several occassion, but usually those responsible for the destruction are long gone. However Davies said the police did arrest three suspects just last week. “It’s a start.”

Some residents are hoping the city will install cameras to help catch the vandals in the act, or at least leave the park lights on at night. “We need to do something, it’s just ridiculous.” Davies is hopeful that a plan to remove some bushes and trees, that act as cover, will bring the vandals activities to light. Hopefully then the problem may cure itself. “We finally get something nice in our neighbourhood and they’re destroying it,” she said.

Officer cleared of force allegation

Trees lie on their side, snapped off and left for dead. A pile of chain link fence has been ripped from its frame and sits useless on the ground. Netting hangs limply by a thread from a nearby basketball hoop. Saddened neighbours look around Abbotsford’s Berry Park, shaking their heads at the damage. The cause? It wasn’t a wind storm, no natural disaster. The damage was done by kids. Vandalism has plagued the park since it was created and Susanne Davies is tired of it. The local resident is one of several members of the Woof Pack, a group of dog owners who walk their pets, up to three times a day, at the park. They have taken it upon themselves to keep the area clean, but the constant vandalism has them discouraged. “Any destruction they can do, they do,” said Davies. She claims it’s a large group of teens who hang out in the park, usually at night, that are causing the destruction. The damages have varied from graffiti, to broken gates, stolen manhole covers to killing trees. “They even burned the outhouse, right to the ground.” To make matters worse, Davies says it’s common knowledge that drugs are being sold in the area as well. “We see them walk into the bushes and then back out in just a few seconds. You know what they are doing.”

A public hearing has cleared an Abbotsford Police officer of any wrongdoing during an incident three years ago when he accidentally broke the finger of a man while taking away his camera. The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC) held the hearing to determine whether Const. Alex Wood used unnecessary force or abused his authority when dealing with Jonathan Peters on April 8, 2008. Wood was among officers involved in the execution of a search warrant at a suspected drug house on Crescent Way on that date, and was assigned to help contain the front of the property. Peters was a tenant in a residence on the street. When he saw officers appear on scene, he grabbed his camera and ran outside to take pictures of the raid. His intention was to post the pictures in the neighbourhood to discourage grow-ops and to try to sell the photos to local newspapers, according to the written “reasons for decision” from the hearing. When Peters appeared on the scene, Wood and another officer asked him to stop taking pictures and to leave the area for his own safety. Peters complied and moved to a different property, where he continued to snap photos as a man and a woman came out of the house and were arrested. Wood again asked Peters to leave and said if he didn’t, he would be arrested for obstruction.

“Jonathan Peters replied that his was a free country, he had the right to take pictures as he was then on private property and he had the permission of the owner ... to be there,” the hearing documents state. Wood then approached Peters and asked him to hand over his camera. Peters clutched the camera with both hands to his chest, and Wood then pried it away from him. Peters’ pinky finger was broken in the process. Peters filed a complaint with the Abbotsford Police Department on September of that year. Chief Bob Rich reviewed the findings of an investigation into the matter and concluded in March 2009 that the allegations against Wood were unsubstantiated. The OPCC asked him to review his decision, and Rich came to the same conclusion. The OPCC determined in February 2010 that a public hearing on the issue was necessary in the public interest. Adjudicator Timothy Singh, a retired justice of the Supreme Court, concluded that Wood had the “necessary lawful authority” to ask Peters to leave the area, and the force he used to seize the camera was “commensurate with the resistance offered by Jonathan Peters.” He said he took into consideration that Peters had told police he would withdraw the complaint if they paid him $2,000, which he later raised to $5,000. The police refused to pay him. The Abbotsford Police recommended an obstruction charge against Peters, but it was not approved by Crown counsel.

Trash fight not over

NewsBytes

Ross disappointed by approval but won’t give up Kevin MILLS and Robert FREEMAN Black Press

Disappointed. That’s the one word Patricia Ross keeps using when asked about the provincial decision to approve a Metro Vancouver waste management plan that includes an incineration component. The Abbotsford councillor and chair of the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is a vocal opponent of trash burning. She was shocked by Monday’s announcement from the B.C. environment minister. “I’m extremely disappointed and let down. I was hoping that the minister would stand up for the people of the Fraser Valley,” said Ross. She said Environment Minister Terry Lake has “completely missed the point” of the FVRD’s objections. “We are trying to reduce the pollution in our stressed air shed, not add to it – no matter how high they say the standards are.” The provincial endorsement includes a number of conditions, including consultation with the FVRD before wasteto-energy (WTE) incineration sites are approved. “Consultation? Isn’t that what we’ve been doing for the past two years?” said Ross, adding she doesn’t feel optimistic that Metro will start listening now. A WTE plant is used to incinerate garbage and create steam. The energy created can then be used instead of fossil fuels which proponents of the process say will be more environmentally-friendly than shipping trash to land fills. However, opponents say the burning process will add more toxins into the valley’s air. Quoting a Metro report, Ross said 57 per cent of the Valley’s air pollution comes from Metro Vancouver, while the Valley only generates 14 per cent. “I’m tired of facing a threat from people who don’t have to breathe in what they create.” Ross said WTE facilities will only be required to report a “small handful of the pollutants” actually emitted, “so what they say they will emit and what is actually going into the air are two very different

Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz has a different reaction than her Abbotsford counterpart. She called on Premier Christy Clark to “overthrow” the minister’s decision. She said if the environment minister hoped to “placate” the Fraser Valley with promises of consultation “we are not placated. “We are angry and frustrated,” she said. “We are opposed to incineration, period. “To think that Metro Vancouver will be able to put more garbage into our airshed is frustrating to us.” John Vissers, the Abbotsford representative for the group Zero Waste B.C., said an incineration plan is poor planning over the long term. “This will severely undermine efforts by many groups to reduce the waste stream,” said Vissers. He said a waste-to-energy scheme will leave municipalities reliant on the waste stream to feed their power producing plants. Vissers added that the most serious concern has to be air quality. “Instead of burying the trash, we’re going to put it up in the air,” he said. “It just doesn’t make a lot of sense.” He said Victoria let the Lower Mainland municipalities take a “quick fix.” “We’re surprised the province didn’t encourage Metro to look a little harder for alternatives,” he said. “This will set the tone for how we manage waste for the next – who knows – 50 years.” The provincial government’s decision to allow waste-toenergy came with several preconditions. They include: Q Consultation with the FVRD to address air quality concerns prior to construction of a new or expanded WTE facility. Q Establishment of a working group with the FVRD to develop recommendations on WTE emission standards and environmental monitoring, as well as mitigation measures to address “reasonable concerns of the FVRD” with respect to additional WTE in-region. If no agreement can be reached, an arbitrator is to make a recommendation.

SEX OFFENDER BACK IN JAIL A female sex offender, released from prison last month, is back in custody. Audrey Elizabeth Jean Black, 34, was released under conditions that she not attend any public park, playground, recreation centre or other place where children were expected to be. On June 16, 2011 the Abbotsford Police Department issued a public notification concerning Black, who had elected to live in Abbotsford. Monday afternoon a concerned citizen contacted Abbotsford Police after seeing a woman she thought was Black, in the area of Mill Lake Park. Minutes later an Abbotsford Police Department Patrol Division officer located Black and arrested her. In a press release, the police said “community involvement is an integral part of making the city safer. We commend the observations and actions of this citizen in assisting the APD in our efforts to make Abbotsford the safest city in British Columbia.”

AESC brought $24M: Report Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) generated an economic impact of $24.3 million in 2010 according to figures released Friday. The economic impact study, presented to council Monday afternoon, was written by the consulting company Grant Thornton International. It stated that the equivalent of 305 full-time jobs were created by the AESC last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all bad news,â&#x20AC;? said Abbotsford Mayor George Peary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The critics of the sports centre either donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand, or BASTIN choose not to understand, that there are some benefits.â&#x20AC;? According to the study, the AESC hosted 68 events in 2010 and attracted a total attendance of 208,450. That breaks down to 146,450 for Abbotsford Heat games, 11,530 for music concerts and 50,470 for entertainment and other events. The economic impact is evaluated by establishing direct, indirect and induced spending. Direct includes expenditures and employment directly related to the AESC, indirect is money in the community created by supplying goods and services to the facility, and induced is the impact created by visiting teams, patrons and entertain-

The Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre has a positive effect on the Abbotsford economy, according to a consultantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report. ers (incorporating hotel room stays, restaurant meals, gas stations etc.). â&#x20AC;&#x153;These centres are anchors for community growth,â&#x20AC;? said Doug Bastin of Grant Thornton Consulting. He called the economic impact â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantâ&#x20AC;? for one facility, adding it will multiply that input year after year. More economic impact could be seen in the coming years as the proposed University District (U-District) is created. The city has planned to create a district, with the University of the Fraser Valley and the AESC at its centre. The plan calls for shops, restaurants, easy transit access and other

improvements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to see a lot of new development in the next decade or so,â&#x20AC;? said Peary. While the study is being perceived as good news, Peary said that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the ongoing work to cut down the AESC deficit, which was $3.4 million in 2010 and $2.6 million in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have a lot of work to do to improve attendance at Heat games,â&#x20AC;? he said. However he did acknowledge that Global Spectrum, which manages the facility, has done a good job increasing the number, and the success, of travelling entertainment shows.

project is estimated to cost between $2.5 and $3 million. “We have some fundraising and corporate begging to do, but I’ve talked to a lot of groups and there’s a lot of interest.” Society president Cindy Boury was at the presentation, with a large crowd of supporters, and asked council to take the first step and save the 6.2 acre site for this project, by designating it in the city’s Master Plan. While council was receptive to the idea, Coun. John Smith pointed out one problem. “We don’t own all of the land in that 6.2 acre site.” The city has been slowly purchasing the lands adjacent to Mill Lake, but has not completed the process. “There is no definitive, fixed timeline when this will occur,” said Mayor George Peary. City staff will examine the proposal and report to council at the end of September.

Unacceptable decision Disappointing is among the milder word that can be used to describe the province’s decision to endorse Metro’s regional waste plan, which includes the incineration of garbage. Unacceptable is closer to the mark. On Monday, Minister of Environment Terry Lake gave his approval, despite loud and sustained opposition to burning of waste – particularly from the Valley, and its regional representatives. Those voices, along with a number of experts, have expressed their concerns over the known issues associated with the waste-to-energy incineration option – and more importantly, the risks that aren’t fully understood, such as the effects of nanoparticles and dioxins that are produced in the process. Apprently, those arguments were not enough to cause the environment minister to axe or restrict the incineration portion of the plan, which also calls for a serious push for increased

recycling and composting of household organics. The latter, we heartily support. It’s not a done deal yet. Assuming the Metro board will actually pursue the incineration option (little doubt there), it has to clear the location hurdle. That’s obviously key for the Fraser Valley, since it’s a simple fact that the emissions from a waste-to-energy plant in the Lower Mainland will be driven into the Valley already stressed airshed due to the area’s geography. If incineration is to proceed, a far better option would be a site far away from our backyard, such as the proposed Gold River alternative on Vancouver Island. Ostensibly, if Metro and the FV regional district can’t reach agreement on the matter, it will go to arbitration. Hopefully, there’s still plenty of fight left in this region’s politicians and public. This battle isn’t – can’t be – over.

B.C. economy not taking a haircut with HST Tom

Fletcher

B.C. Views The B.C. government has released its audited public accounts for what Bill Vander Zalm enthusiasts strain to depict as Year One of the Harmonized Sales Tax Apocalypse. So let’s survey this allegedly bleak landscape of shuttered hair salons and seniors hoarding pet food, waiting for Belgian bureaucrats to come calling for more. Retail sales increased 5.3 per cent in 2010. Growth has softened so far this year, but there’s no evidence it’s due to the HST. (Retail sales are mostly goods, which are mostly unaffected.) B.C.’s economy grew by four per cent, third in Canada behind those new northern tigers Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. We beat Alberta, as well as have-not Ontario. The provincial deficit dropped by nearly a billion dollars, even though

spending on government services continued its relentless rise with another billion-dollar increase. That’s four per cent spending growth, the same as the growth rate of the economy. But as usual, two thirds of it is health-care spending, growing closer to twice that fast. Hair salons? My barber voted No to Vander Zalm. His accounting is simpler, his price is still reasonable and customers aren’t generally prepared to start cutting their own hair. Restaurant association head Ian Tostenson predicted thousands of restaurants would close because of HST, and then mused about running for premier. Fortunately, we were spared from both of these scenarios. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon put out some spin about how tight-fisted spending control brought the deficit down from the 10-figure range. Prudence, he called it. Prune juice is more like it. It was economic growth that paid the bills, with mills and mines opening and consumers spending. Former premier Bill Bennett’s observation still applies: B.C. is a small, open resource economy in a volatile world market. Commodity markets have strength-

ened to the point where even the rising Canadian dollar is being overcome. Expansion to Asia is proceeding, assisted by a long-term federal-provincial strategy that the NDP opposed. A skilled labour shortage already exists in the B.C. northeast and is forecast to

Currently it looks as if going back to the old provincial sales tax will cost the treasury about $600 million spread across the province. The government’s latest labour market survey estimates that B.C. will be in a labour shortage by 2016, and there will be one million job openings by 2020. One third of these will come from economic growth, two thirds from retiring baby boomers. Unlike next year’s HST revenues, this prediction is relatively easy to make with precision. Job growth does depend, however, on a

competitive tax environment, with competition from Ontario and elsewhere. The public accounts also confirm what we found out last fall, that HST revenues have run ahead of expectations. HST haters like to claim the tax was promised to be revenue neutral. That finance ministry estimate was only for the first year, and it proved pessimistic. As with gasoline prices, external forces drown out B.C. tax adjustments in the short term. Currently it looks as if going back to the old provincial sales tax will cost the treasury about $600 million in revenue in each of the next few years. HST rate cuts are made up by economic growth. Or we can return to a 60-year-old retail sales tax developed for a post-war, preservice economy, and continue a B.C. political debate that revolves around 30-year-old socialist ideology. The deficit will immediately jump back up to the 10-digit range. So if your HST referendum envelope is still in the bottom of your recycling bin, you might consider fishing it out and casting a No vote. They have to be delivered to Elections BC by Aug. 5. tfletcher@blackpress.ca twitter.com/tomfletcherbc

letters Stink of our own pollution I’m tired. Why do I have to think about this? Saturday night in Abbotsford, and whenever the wind shifts, it brings the stink of burning chemicals and plastics to the air. Some farmer is trying to save a buck. It’s not OK for farmers to burn petrochemicals, but it happens all the time and not a peep is spoken. I farm and live in the Valley. Out here we ranted and raved about SE2, then defeated it. Today MetroVan plans a garbage incinerators and Fraser Valley folks are up in arms. But there is no outcry over our own pollution of the airshed. How is it possible that my family must breath plastic stench with no remedy in sight? Andrew ArkesteynVogler, Crisp Organic Farm

Tired of watering ban

I was wondering today why we have water restrictions, when we have just had the wettest June and July on record. All the reservoirs and lakes are full and the Fraser is almost over the dikes. Canada has more fresh water than all the other countries in the world put together, and we are still subjected to these restrictions. We have some of the best natural water systems in the world. Our elected officials have created these false shortages by promoting growth in our communities without increasing infrastructure to support it.

I can understand if we have an unusually dry year but these policies have become the norm. I am tired of having water restrictions imposed on me when I am surrounded by water, and having my lawn and garden shrivel up and die every year because I’m worried about some municipal employee fining me for watering. The municipalities need to step up to the plate and give us the water rights British Columbians deserve and expect, instead of making excuses and having committees and study after study. Jim Raffan

Officers find alligator on scene Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

Abbotsford firefighters who were on the scene of a Pineview Avenue blaze on Thursday afternoon alerted police to a grow-op in an adjacent house. When police arrived with a search warrant, they found an unexpected occupant in the home: a sixfoot-long alligator in an aquarium. Const. Ian MacDonald said a 30-year-old male occupant of the residence, who left the scene before police arrived, now faces possible charges of marijuana production. The conservation office is investigating

to determine whether the alligator is legally owned. Members of Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service inadvertently came upon the grow-op while knocking on neighbours’ doors to determine whether

they had experienced any problems related to the fire. They then notified police, who located approximately 375 marijuana plants in the garage and basement of the residence. MacDonald said

police weren’t sure what to do about the alligator, and the conservation officer advised them to leave it there. “It’s not usually in the police mandate to take possession of alligators,” MacDonald joked.

DOWNES ROAD CONSTRUCTION UPDATE BC Hydro continues to construct a new, underground duct bank along Downes Road. This work is resulting in temporary traffic delays, so motorists are encouraged to detour north to Townshipline Road to avoid the construction zone. Crews are on site from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday. The majority of this work will result in single-lane, alternating traffic. However, the installation of three culverts will require a three-day, full road closure to non-residents and non-emergency vehicles. This road closure will occur August 15–17, 2011 between Ross Road and Bradner Road. BC Hydro recognizes the inconvenience this construction may cause and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

One of three men charged in connection with a stabbing last August near the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (AESC) has had three more offences added to his file. Bhavdeep Deol, 22, has been charged with obstructing a police officer, “personation” with intent to avoid arrest and breach of his bail conditions. Const. Ian MacDonald said the charges stem from police pulling over Deol’s vehicle in the 2000 block of Sumas Way on July 19. Deol allegedly did not produce his driver’s licence and identified himself as someone else. He was given an immediate roadside prohibition for suspected impaired driving. The breach charge resulted from allegedly breaking a condition of his parole that he not consume alcohol. Deol is one of three men charged with aggravated assault in which a 24-year-old man was stabbed on Aug. 22, 2010 on the roadway between Finnegan’s Pub and the AESC in the 33700 block of King Road. The victim was attacked and then stabbed in his arm, chest and abdomen. He required emergency surgery. Gurparit Gill, 32, pleaded guilty in the case in May and received a four-year sentence. Deol and co-accused Herman Sidhu, 21, next appear in court Aug. 8 for a trial confirmation hearing.

Cards fall in first round

A19



Comeback comes up shy in best-of-three finale

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

A seventh-inning rally fell painfully short for the Abbotsford Cardinals on Sunday, as the Victoria Mariners eliminated them in the first round of the B.C. Premier Baseball League playoffs. The fifth-seeded Cards and the No. 4 Mariners split the first two games of the best-of-three series on Saturday, with Abbotsford winning the opener 6-3 behind a three-run home run from Nick Buse, and the host Victoria squad staying alive with a 9-1 win in the second game. In Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rubber match, the Cards got on the board in the top of the first when Tyler Krahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single scored Matt Buse. But the Mariners scored twice in the second and once more in the sixth to take a 3-1 lead. In the top of the seventh, the

Cardinals loaded the bases with one out, and Brandon Todoruk drew a walk to push one run across. The next batter, Krahn, put the ball in play, but Mariners third baseman Mike Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw beat Abby baserunner Matt Buse to home plate for the force out. The Cardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last chance rested with Max Chadsey, but he grounded into a fielderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice to end the game.

Affordability by the numbers

Abbotsford and Mission housing prices remain significantly more affordable than the rest of the communities in the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. June’s sales showed the average price of a detached house in Abbotsford was $435,000 in June, based on 116 properties which sold. That compares favourably to the average price of $594,000 for the FVREB overall, based on 875 units sold. White rock sales raise the overall average considerably, with that community’s average house price of $943,000. However, the averages in Langley, North Delta, North Surrey, Surrey Central and Cloverdale are all in the $550,000 range – making Abbotsford considerably more affordable. Mission has the lowest prices in the FVREB, with an average sale of $396,000, based on the 56 houses that sold through June. Prices in Abbotsford were up 5.3 per cent compared with June 2010 sales, and in Mission they

STOBBE Katarina (Katie)

BASSI

Desmond Rajan Roy Nov. 12, 1993 - July 23, 2011

Desmond was born and raised in Abbotsford, BC. He graduated from W.J. Mouat High School and was accepted at Simon Fraser University on a football scholarship, which he was going to attend in the fall. He was born one of two children to Robert and Diljit Bassi and has an older brother named Ryan. Desmond’s family expanded recently and included a step-brother Gavin and half-sister Ella. Desmond was an exceptional son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin, friend, athlete and overall person who was very close to everyone he knew, especially his family. He was a role model to his younger cousins and a genuine, loving, caring, and patient person. Anyone younger than Des just adored him and thought of him as a God. Everyone older than Des thought he was such a good kid and an absolute angel. For a giant of a boy at 6’2”, he was very gentle with the little kids in our family and loved to play and wrestle with them. He led by example and had a very attractive personality and demeanour that caught everyone’s attention. He was very polite and well-spoken and took time to say hello to everyone he knew. He had a lot of respect for his elders and received respect and praise in return. Although he was only with us for 17 years, he taught us to be better people. He was a very positive, determined young man who lived life to the fullest and accomplished so much in a short time span. He had a lot to offer and such a bright future ahead of him. He’ll be remembered for his bashful smile, which made everyone smile in return. His warmth touched everyone’s lives and hearts and he’ll be remembered forever. Thank you Desmond for bringing so much joy to all of our lives! Friends and family are invited to attend a funeral service on Friday, July 29, 2011, at 11:00 am at Clarke Theatre, 33700 Prentis Avenue, Mission, BC V2V 7B1. The funeral will be followed by a prayer ceremony at 2:00 pm at the Khalsa Diwan Society Gurdwara, 33094 South Fraser Way, Abbotsford, BC.

MOLNAR Alex Edmond Jan. 16, 1929 ~ June 4, 2011

Alex passed away suddenly in the early hours of June 4, 2011 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital. Predeceased by his parents John and Julia Molnar, brother Bill, sister Anna and wife Phyllis. He is survived by brothers John (Kathi), Les (Anna Mae), Mike (Raylene) Richie and Ernie and their families. He is also survived by his partner Diane and her family who loved him very much. Alex was born and raised in the Abbotsford area. As a young man he worked in the tobacco fields around Yarrow, logging camps, laying pipes in Whistler and finally retiring from Fraser Valley Steel & Wire in 1989. Alex loved to cook and treated us to many dishes from his Hungarian heritage, but his cabbage rolls were our favorite. Most Sundays found us at the Aldergrove Legion dance (“Twinkle Toes” could still do a fair jive.) We all miss your smiling face.

Our precious mother passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 at the Menno Hospital, Abbotsford, BC at the age of 96. Katie was born in Gnadenheim, Siberia on December 17, 1914. She married Bill Stobbe on July 7, 1940 in Abbotsford. They lived in the Lower Mainland area until 1947. Then they heard God’s call to move to Alberta where they resided until 1972. Their next area of ministry was Vancouver Island until 1988 when they moved back to Abbotsford. Their married life was a “Venture of Faith” as they served the Lord side by side, always ministering to people especially towards anyone in need. Katie’s beloved Bill passed away on February 13th, 2006, the same day she moved into assisted living at Menno Terrace. She moved to the Menno Hospital in the fall of 2010 where she remained until her passing. She never complained and always had an encouraging word. We thank the Lord that she was not in pain and her mind remained clear. Katie was predeceased by her husband, Bill Stobbe, daughter-in-law Margaret Stobbe and is survived and lovingly remembered by her 8 children; son, Victor, wife Carolyn, son Stanley, wife Olive, daughter Esther Swanson, husband Derek, son Daniel, wife Cathy, son Harry, wife Mary, daughter Miriam Peters, son Jim and daughter Margaret Rukin, husband Stan; 19 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren; 3 sisters and 3 brothers; along with numerous nephews, nieces, other relatives and friends. The family wishes to thank the caring staff at Menno Terrace and Menno Hospital along with the many family and friends that visited and prayed for mom over the past few years. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am, Friday, July 29, 2011 at the Sevenoaks Alliance Church, 2575 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford with burial following at the South Poplar Cemetery at 2:30 pm.
