Mission’s own world-famous singer Carly Rae Jepsen was back home Monday night for a high-energy concert at the Clarke Theatre. Playing a selection of her hits, including “This Kiss,” Jepsen performed for the hometown crowd of appreciative fans that nearly packed the venue. Speaking to Black Press before the concert, Larry Jepsen, Carly Rae’s father, said she’s “always been so grateful for the support from Mission.” The 27-year-old double Grammy nominee was thrilled to be able to put on a show for her local fans, he continued. Among Carly Rae’s list of positive influences in her musical career is Heritage Park Secondary School drama teacher Bev Holmes. “This is totally exciting and totally fun,” said Holmes before the music began, noting that Jepsen has maintained a happy and humble attitude about her runaway success. “That’s still who she is.” The free concert was brought to Mission by retailer Target, which handed out 500 tickets last week at the Leisure Centre.

Abbotsford News

An hour before the final episode of Big Break Greenbrier aired, Abbotsford’s Cactus Club restaurant was already packed, as friends and family of local golfer James Lepp gathered to see if he could secure the top prize on the popular Golf Channel reality show. Lepp was facing Mark Silvers of Savannah, Ga. in the 18-hole match-play finale, and an impressive prize package – highlighted by $50,000 cash and an exemption into the 2013 PGA Tour’s Greenbrier Classic – was on the line. For a while, it looked like Lepp was going to run away with it. He seized the lead on the fifth hole, and stretched it to three-up with five holes remaining. With every great shot the 29-year-old struck –  and there were many –  a cheer rose from the Cactus Club crowd. But Lepp himself knew it wasn’t going to end well

cheered at the end even though I had lost, it made it not matter as much. The whole night in general, it was sweet.” Lepp was one of 12 golfers cast for the show, which saw players compete in a variety of elimination challenges over 11 episodes. It’s not hard to understand why his back story was appealing to the show’s producers. Lepp’s phenomenal amateur career was highlighted by a 2005 NCAA championship victory, but after turning pro in 2006, consistency proved elusive and he lost his passion for golf. In 2008, he put his playing career on the back burner and launched Kikkor Golf, a shoe and apparel company. But being on Big Break Greenbrier served to reignite Lepp’s love of the game, and he delighted golf fans with his charismatic approach and unique “saucer pass” chipping style. Now, he’s leaning towards resuming his playing career on the PGA Tour Canada circuit in the spring.

A dedication ceremony was held Tuesday afternoon in Abbotsford in honour of a “little place with a big heart.” Those sentiments were expressed by Steve Thiessen, CEO of Communitas Supportive Care Society, in a prayer for Matthew’s House – a respite facility for children with VIDLEIONE severe disabiliON ws.com ties. abbyne The facility is part of the Dave Lede Campus of Care project currently under construction beside Abbotsford Regional Hospital on Marshall Road.

Scoring big for charitable cause

your old gold = christmas gifts 3 0 Y E A R S O F T R U S T WO RT H Y B U S I N E S S

A dozen hockey teams donate gifts to Sally Ann

Dan KINVIG Abbotsford News

Standing in the locker room doorway following a recent game, Herman Stahl listened with great interest as the Abbotsford Vipers hockey team discussed the specifics of a Christmas gift exchange. It was suggested that instead of buying presents for each other, the midget (age 15-17) boys squad could instead donate them to a local charity. “I thought they might talk about it a little bit, but there was no talking,” recounted Stahl, the team manager. “Everybody was just nodding their heads, saying ‘Yeah, let’s do it.’ It was pretty amazing to see them so united on that – rather than waste 15 bucks on each other, let’s give it away. “I sent an email to

the parents later on, and I said, ‘Your kids really warmed my heart by committing to that.’” The Vipers decided to donate their gifts to the Salvation Army for distribution to those less fortunate, and they opened up the initiative to the rest of

the Abbotsford Minor Hockey Association. They collected presents at their games on Sunday and Monday at MSA Arena. In the end, 12 other teams contributed, and they combined to fill a small pickup truck with board games, Vancouver Canucks gear, Barbie

dolls and more. Stahl dropped the donations off at the Salvation Army on Tuesday. “We already have everything,” reasoned Vipers captain Riley Kerr, age 17. “We have hockey, we all play sports, we all have good presents coming. So we decided as a team to give

to charity. “It feels great. It’s too bad we couldn’t see the people in person and give the gifts to them. But just knowing they’re going to be smiling makes us all feel great.” Stahl was encouraged by the response to the Vipers’ charity initiative from the rest of the minor hockey association. “We had no idea how it was going to go, but it was neat how some of the parents and some of the teams got together and donated,” he said. Stahl describes the Vipers as a sportsmanlike squad – their league offers a bonus point for having less than 12 penalty minutes in a game, and the Vipers, more often than not, collect that bonus. “They’re a really good group of kids,” he said. “They’re pretty mild-mannered, funloving.”

Council reverses decision to shelve environmental projects

Kevin MILLS Abbotsford News

Abbotsford council has had a fast change of heart regarding its Community Sustainability Planning Initiative. One week after shelving the four-part environmental study and telling staff to take no further action, the initiative has been reintroduced and will go forward to public consultation. Council made the decision Monday after Mayor Bruce Banman reopened the debate. “It wasn’t going to come back up until January, but there were some issues in regards to funding and there are some public consultation periods that have to happen,” he said. About $228,000 in funding is coming from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and BC Hydro, plus $90,000 from the city. If the initiative is

Instead, a Green the public’s views.

“I’m hoping that people will become engaged and let us know what they think,” said Ross. Coun. John Smith, who was one of the most vocal opponents of the reports, said the risk of losing the gas tax, the possibility of paying back funding, the agreement to drop the Sumas Mountain plan and assurances from staff that the reports will be modified convinced him to move the initiative forward. He was concerned that the report made some recommendations that could cost the city millions, citing improved transit as an example. “Before we start leading our community on with wild expectations that we’re going to have greatly improved transit, we’ve got to figure out how to fund that. This council needs to have a debate on how much are we prepared to spend.”

Long time cartoonist and Abbotsford historian Ernie Poignant has created a collection of some of his best works, thanks to a little help from the MSA Museum Society and the Abbotsford News. Called Poignant Moments, the 48-page, magazine-style publication showcases his first cartoon, drawn in 1937, to his latest works. Preparing for the book took hours of planning and hard decisions. “It was give and take. I looked at thousands of them and tried to pick the right cartoons,” he said, As usual, he sorted through his work on the kitchen table while his wife, Rose, worked around him. Ernie has always drawn on the kitchen table for the past 58 years he’s used it, moving his cartoons out of the way whenever it was time for a meal.

$ His cartoons are a mirror into a simpler time. Many are based on real events that took place in his life. “Cartooning is more observation than inspiration,” he said. The 93-year-old still doodles and presents “chalk talks” at local seniors’ homes. Ernie said the completed book “looks great.” Dorothy van der Ree, executive director of the MSA Museum Society worked with Ernie to get the book published. “Now we are going to actively market it which doesn’t take much because everybody knows and loves Ernie’s cartoons,” said van der Ree. The book costs $5 and is available at the MSA Museum Society (2313 Ware St.) and at the Abbotsford News (34375 Gladys Ave.). Proceeds will go to the society.

Reversal on sustainability

OF THE WEEK Has the economy caused you to reduce your contributions to charity this year?

If you don’t support sustainability what is the other option? Three cheers for sober second thought. I didn’t think they could do that!

To answer, go to abbynews.com

LAST WEEK, WE ASKED:

Anne Graham

Do you approve of the Abbotsford Police initiative to send Christmas cards to crooks?

Thanks to careful consideration, council voted again and decided to support the sustainability charter and move forward. John Vissers

This is indeed good news! Thanks for sharing. I think the gigantic bill they would get for killing the work was sobering.

On Point Some time back, some colleagues convinced me to sign up with LinkedIn, one of the (then) new buzz-wares making the rounds of the business networking crowd. I was vulnerable, having just added my face to the vast Book in cyberspace, and doing some tentative tinkering with Twitter. If they had told me that it was corporately cool to join Digital Data Group Hug, and participate in computerized croonings of Kumbaya at noon every day, I probably would have gone for that, too.

I mean, just because someone suddenly emerges in my email, all networked up, should I be out there as part of their personal cheerleading squad? Digital relationships can be so superficial. Nevertheless, I offer my regards to all my cyberspace “buddies.” Not in a LinkedIn sense, though … I’m not really that kind of guy … but in a holiday greetings, goodwill to all and peace on Earth sort of way.

letters Child protection system needs cleaning up Re: Autistic girl to be returned home to dad, The News, Dec. 11. The Ministry of Children and Family Development and their like make their own rules. They are omnipotent. The courts fear them. Their tactic, when opposed, is to accuse parents, police, law-

yers, judges and the courts, of not having the knowledge and experience to know what is good or bad for a child’s best welfare. They have more money and time than anyone opposing them to keep you running in circles through the courts. They have perfected the tactic of delay, adjournment

and deferment almost to a science. Worker burnout and turnover is high, coast-to-coast. It’s not the work – it’s the policies that eventually get to them. As we’ve all read and seen in the national media the child protection services track record over the past 25 years has

been abysmal. Their legally upheld and enforced “professional” decisions have buried more than a few children, yet they are allowed to carry on. The whole system, Canada-wide, needs first to be cleaned out, then cleaned up! The courts and provincial governments have demonstrated

little interest in moving against them. This man is only one of thousands of men, women and couples who have been punished by this shielded organization. And tomorrow it will continue without opposition. Robert Downey

Reminder to Property Owners — Sidewalk Snow Removal

Christmas Wrapping Paper is Not Recyclable

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please call Bylaw Enforcement at 604-864-5512.

2013 Auxiliary Firefighter Recruitment

Under the City’s Good Neighbour Bylaw, residents must remove snow and ice from sidewalks and footpaths bordering their house not later than 12:00 noon the day following the snowfall. Please voluntarily keep the sidewalks and footpaths next to your property clear, so others may safely use them. Failing to comply with the City’s bylaw may result in a fine of $150.

Order of Abbotsford

Do you know an outstanding citizen? Someone who shows leadership and dedication? The City of Abbotsford is looking to honour these people. The Order of Abbotsford was established by Council, on February 7, 2005, to recognize individuals who bring distinction to themselves and to the City of Abbotsford in broad areas of endeavour such as: community leadership; business; labour; industry; volunteer service; professions and other occupations; research; culture; the arts; sports; and others. The City is seeking nominations for the Order of Abbotsford. Any person or organization may nominate a resident of Abbotsford. Nomination forms can be found on the City website at www.abbotsford.ca/order, or picked up from the City Clerk’s Office, fifth floor, Abbotsford City Hall, during regular business hours. Nominations for 2013 recipients must be received by December 31, 2012.

Snow & Ice Control

The goal of the City’s Snow and Ice Control Program is to maintain travel routes where there is snow and ice on roads and restore mobility for the traveling public. Our roads are classified: • first priority (high volume and strategic arterial and collector roads, and major access roads to hillside areas); • second priority (remaining arterial, hillside areas and collector routes); and • third priority (remaining roadways not identified as first and second priority). First priority roads are maintained until conditions are under control subject to worker/equipment availability and weather. Only then are resources redirected to second priority routes and subsequently third priority routes. The City of Abbotsford, which takes a pro-active approach to snow and ice control, operates three anti-icing units (tanks containing sodium chloride solution) on four-lane roads and rural priority roads. The units are used to spray road surfaces before and during a storm. Anti-icing helps keep roads ice free and improves snow removal. Several pre-wetting units, which inject liquid sodium chloride into the salt/sand mixture before it is applied to roads, are also used by the City. These units increase the melting of snow and ice, and reduce the loss of salt/sand caused by traffic. The City does not remove snow and ice to bare pavement conditions. The public is encouraged to use caution, and wherever possible, park vehicles off the streets. Abandoned vehicles or vehicles obstructing roadways will be towed without notice to allow for snow clearing operations to continue and towing costs will be the responsibility of the vehicle owners. We ask that you do not plow snow from private properties onto the public roadways as this can result in visibility hazards and obstructions and will require additional time for clearing roadways. The City will work 24 hour days until the snow ends and first priority routes are passable for travel. For more information, please contact the Engineering Operations Division at 604-853-5485.

When wrapping up presents, consider using re-useable gift bags, tins, shopping bags, a scarf, t-shirt or blanket as an alternative to wrapping paper. Christmas wrapping paper cannot be recycled, due to low quality paper and the number of contaminants. Blue bags containing wrapping paper will not be collected.

Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service is a composite Fire Service in that Career fire fighters and Auxiliary fire fighters work as a team. Auxiliary fire fighters play an important support role in responding to emergencies. Interested candidates are invited to attend an INFORMATION SESSION at 7:00 PM on January 10, 2013 at Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service Training Centre located at 1544 Riverside Rd.

Santa lives in every heart

From my chair as a mall Santa, I have experienced the company of young and old as they visit to make a wish or capture a Christmas moment.  I’ve come to realize I am not giving them the Christmas magic – rather they visit to celebrate the spirit of Santa in themselves. A spirit that is within and outside of religion as people of all faiths and opinions come to visit me in my chair. Santa is real. The proof is not

in me dressed in a red suit and sitting in a Santa chair, but in the magical change in people touched by the spirit. The Santa spirit lives within each beating heart and when it receives attention, a life becomes enriched with a giving nature. When you awaken your “Santa,” every day will be merry and bright.   This is the truth, and a gift from Santa to you. Merry Christmas. Santa Gord

letters Wait until there’s money in our pockets

As a taxpayer and a voter I would like to know how much real money does the City of Abbotsford have in the bank for project YMCA, if any? By this I mean actual money and not future taxpayer dollars. I ask this because recent newspaper articles indicate that currently  most Canadian municipalities are spending far  beyond the resources available to them. In light of this, and our city’s current  debt, where is this play money coming from? Taxpayers and businesses are the first choice, as Abbotsford city council is not allowed to actually print its own money. It appears instead to have chosen debt as a form of currency. The  residents of this city are still feeling the impact of the last idea to come

down the pipeline by this current series of musical chairs mayors, and simply are not inspired by the ideas behind the

YMCA package deal and what it involves. Surely, there has to be a better way to put together a deal without giving away

the farm. Perhaps we should wait until time is on our side and there’s money in our pockets.

HOT TIPS FOR A

COLD WINTER EXFOLIATE! The accumulation of dry, dead skin can cause the surface to be rough, dull and flaky. You may find that a gentle scrub such as Biotherm clarifying exfoliating gel will unveil softer, smoother skin when used 2-3 times per week. However, for those who crave the maximum polish, we suggest Dermaglow’s microdermabrasion system, which will give you spa results in the comfort of your own home. USE A TONER! When you wash your face, the natural ph balance of the dermis is disturbed. If you were to apply your skincare directly afterwards upon a freshly washed face, without toning, the cream that you are investing in would not be absorbed or received very well into the skin. A toner can also remove the last stubborn remnents of dead tissue which blocks the creams absorption. Biotherm toner comes in oily, normal combination and dry formulas. MOISTURIZE! Whether you have oily, acne

Hot Tip:

prone skin, combination, or the driest of faces... you must moisturize. The winter conditions can be so severely dry that the skin is left flaky, itchy, and lack lustre to say the least. Up to half of the lines you see on your skin could be caused by dehydration, and easily treated with the proper skincare. By simply adding the Smashbox hydrating primer to your regimen, you will plump out fine lines, and maintain a fresh complexion all day. Also, Vichy’s anti-age acne line ‘Normaderm” will gently calm the most aggravated skin breakouts and help you to achieve the smooth, clear skin that you crave. Even the oiliest of skin must use a cream both day and night to achieve balance and clarity. Don’t forget to come in for your personalized makeup consultation. We are always eager to answer your colour questions and assist you with new and exciting application techniques.

Biotherm makes an eye-makeup remover with natural extracts that aids in the growth & volume of your eyelashes? Come check it out!

Annoying ‘Mosquito’ to deter vandalism Vikki HOPES Abbotsford News

two schools have experienced more than their share of vandalism, including graffiti, broken windows, and garbage left behind after partying. “The district has received numerous complaints from neighbours, of young people

hanging around the schools at night and essentially partying on elementary school grounds,” Stephen said. The Mosquito is a small speaker that can be set to emit a high-frequency sound generContinued on A19

The hottest item in jewellery

The Abbotsford school district is hoping that an annoying high-pitched sound, detectable only to young people, will deter vandalism at two local schools.

The district has decided to install an anti-loitering device, called the “Mosquito,” on a trial basis at Dave Kandal and Harry Sayers elementaries. Dave Stephen, district communications manager, said the

ally heard only by people from the ages of 13 to 25. The ability to hear high frequencies deteriorates with age. Stephen said the devices in Abbotsford will be set at a level that is most effective for young people aged 13 to 20, and will be effective to a range of about 15 metres. Neighbours will not be impacted because the sound does not penetrate windows, doors, walls, fences or dense shrubbery, he said.

Stephen said the school district spends about $150,000 each year to repair vandalized property and to paint over graffiti. The cost of the Mosquito devices, including installation, will be about $3,200. Stephen said they will be active at the two schools either in late January or early February. They will be in place for about a year, and the district will then determine whether to continue with them and/or add them to other locations.

UFV performers (from left to right) Mandy Dyck, Geneva Perkins, Lisa Apps and (sitting) Phaydra-Rae Gagnon rehearse a scene from the new production of Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout. The show opens Jan. 11.

UFV tells trout tale The second production of the University of the Fraser Valley Theatre department‘s 2012/13 season is the bittersweet tragicomedy Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout, by award-winning First Nations playwright Tomson Highway. In the story, the audience can spend time with four women of the Shuswap, Okanagan and Thompson First Nations as they prepare a banquet for the arrival of Canadian Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1910. Everything must be perfect for the visit: the Saskatoon pies, the stuffed beaver, and Ernestine Shuswap’s famous trout. In this production, the 100 years (from first contact with the First Nations people to the time of Sir Laurier’s arrival) are condensed into the time frame of one day. As the day progresses, the women move through a world in transition, as new laws, imposed

I was born with a condition known as neurofibromatosis that has caused tumours to grow on my brain. Battling these tumours has left me with pain throughout my entire body. It’s all I have ever known, it’s my life, and it’s exhausting. I try to lead a normal life - going to school, playing sports, just like any other 19 year old. But the pain means I have to work harder to focus, I get tired, and I need more sleep. My medicine is really good — but it could be better. For now I’m waiting, hoping that someday someone will discover a new medicine to stop the pain for good. www.canadapharma.org/hope Canada’s Research-Based Pharmaceutical Companies Making Canada Better

Proceeds from a book written by an Abbotsford woman will help support children with autism spectrum disorder. Jodi Tucker, CEO of Kids Matter Inc., has authored the book “Abigail,” the first in a series of stories about a Volkswagen Beetle trying to find her place in the world. Illustrations are by Johnnie Balfour. Tucker is an advocate for people with disabilities, and she often receives requests from families looking for support but who have no access to funding. Profits from the book will help fund scholarships for children who otherwise cannot access programs. All the situations that Abigail finds herself in are directly inspired from many of Tucker’s case studies. In addition, she said the book is a teaching tool to provide a bridge for discussion with children and the situations they may find themselves in. The book is available for $25, plus shipping, by emailing info@kidsmattercanada. com.

Poinsettias are beautiful and still the world’s number one indoor plant in terms of sheer numbers grown, but many folks are looking for other alternatives to decorate their homes for the Christmas season. Well, there is a new and very unique plant that deserves some attention. Ardisia crenata (or Coral Berry) has arrived on the market after 35 years of research and development by Mr. Vanden Bos, Sr. in the Netherlands. Ardisia, an Indonesian native, is a soft leafed evergreen that grows in layers. In spring e a c h l a y e r Brian p r o duces masses of tiny white flowers which produce berries in August and September that then turn a beautiful red in November and December. Ardisia looks almost like a layer cake and is highly decorative and very unique. It takes a very specialized grower to produce these plants over a two year growing cycle. Only two Canadian growers are licensed to produce these plants: one in Ontario and one in B.C. In our homes, Coral Berry loves indirect light or direct exposure if placed in an east or north window. They like to be well watered, then allowed to dry out slightly before being watered again. In other words, pick up the pot and if it feels light, water it very thoroughly until it feels heavy. Let it dry out slightly, before watering again. If you have a very hot dry home, mist the foliage daily to bump up the humidity. The ideal temperature for them in winter to balance their humidity needs is 16°C. This will also help keep the berries on and the plant at its prime. Spring and summer temperatures of 2025°C are fine. When spring comes, ardisia will flush out with lots of new growth, especially on the top layers and even on the bottom layers, and white flowers will appear. The trick is to get them to set buds.

Abbotsford News

For Boseko Lokombo and the University of Oregon football team, facing elite dualthreat quarterbacks in high-profile bowl games should almost be considered an annual tradition at this point. As a redshirt freshman in 201011, Lokombo – a linebacker out of Abbotsford’s W.J. Mouat Secondary –  helped the Ducks to the Bowl Championship

Series (BCS) national title game, where they lost 22-19 to an Auburn Tigers squad led by Cam Newton. Three months later, Newton was the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, and he would go on to win the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year award with the Carolina Panthers. Last season, Lokombo was part of a victory in the storied Rose Bowl, as Oregon beat the Wisconsin Badgers

45-38. The Badgers’ offence was piloted by Russell Wilson, currently a rookie phenom with the Seattle Seahawks. So as the Ducks

prepare to face Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein –  yet another pivot who can beat teams with his arm or with his legs –  and the Kansas State

Wildcats in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on Thursday, Jan. 3, Lokombo is unfazed. “He (Klein) is a good player, but the thing with him is, we’ve played many

dual-threat quarterbacks,” Lokombo noted. “We’re used to seeing talent like that, and it’s not really going to be a big difference. We’re just going to have

to be ready for him, and their skill players too, and just play defence like we’ve been playing all year.” Lokombo has stepped to the fore-

front during his junior season with the Eugene, Ore. program. After seeing significant playing time as a backup his first two years, the 6’3”, 233-pound-

er has recorded 34 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble and four pass knockdowns in his first season as a full-time starter. He’s helped the Ducks to an 11-1 record, and only an overtime loss to Stanford on Nov. 17 prevented Oregon from making a return trip to the national championship game. As it stands, Lokombo will be playing in a prestigious BCS bowl game for the third straight year. His play is drawing notice. Last week, he was No. 1 in the most recent prospect rankings from the Canadian Football League Scouting Bureau. The winter edition of the list features the top 15 prospects eligible for the 2013 Canadian draft, and is composed with input from CFL scouts, player personnel directors and general managers. “It’s really exciting to see that, and it’s a blessing,” Lokombo said. “It’s showing that all this hard work is paying off. It’s really neat to see people paying attention to your talent.” Whether or not he’s selected in the CFL draft in the spring, Lokombo plans to return for his senior year at Oregon. Beyond that, playing in the NFL is his ultimate goal. “I’m going to get my degree,” said Lokombo, a journalism major. “It’s a promise I made my mom and my family –  the degree is the ultimate prize. I’m 100 per cent going to come back, finish my senior year, get my degree, and just keep working hard and see what happens after that. “I feel like I had a good season, but there’s still a lot for me to learn. There’s still lots of improvements in every facet of the game. I’m still just getting comfortable and getting started. The sky is the limit –  I’m only going to keep getting better and better.”

Abbotsford Community Services is able to provide this service through contributions to United Way.

Counter Attack: safe ride home! Plan ahead for a

Prepare a plan to get home safe Keep our roads safe this season by taking a moment to consider the return trip home. Police will be out in full force with this year’s CounterAttack efforts, so if you’re going to drink, plan ahead to avoid inconvenience, fines and driving suspensions, not to mention the increased risk of an accident. Whether you decide to employ a ‘designated driver’ rule, use a taxi service or Operation Red Nose, your advance planning will help to ensure your safe return home. The province, ICBC and police are reminding drivers to drive smart and find an alternative way home if they’ll be out drinking this holiday season. On average, 3,000 people are injured and 116 people die in 5,100 alcohol-related crashes each year. “Studies have shown that signiicant impairment occurs when you have a blood alcohol concentration of .02 (a quarter of the legal driving limit). And when a driver has a BAC between .10 and .14, they

are 48 times more likely to cause a fatal crash than a sober driver. Crash survivors may spend months in hospital recovering from serious injuries or be left with a permanent disability,” said Dr. Roy Burssell, an emergency physician at Vancouver General Hospital.

NELSON Lloyd Henry June 8, 1929 ~ Dec. 3, 2012

Born on a farm in Alberta, Lloyd moved to Mission, BC with his family when he was twelve years old. An indefatigable worker he spent most of his career as a heavy-duty mechanic in remote logging operations on the coasts of Vancouver Island and the BC mainland. Lloyd met his wife, Virginia, in the village of Ucluelet; they were married in 1950 on Meares Island in Clayoquot Sound. They raised four children, Richard, Carole, Catherine, and Laura, in Ucluelet until 1959 when they moved their family to Mission. A gifted storyteller, Lloyd drew on his life on the farm, his boyhood in Mission, and his adventures in the camps. His stories and conversation were peppered with laughter, wit, and a penchant for puns. His contagious laugh and sense of humour found him many friends to whom he was kind, generous, and always willing to help. His insatiable curiosity, passion for the natural world, and his fascination for how things worked served him well in his last years when he was very sick. Always thinking, he was never bored while he struggled with the merciless pain of bone cancer. He thought of his family first and loved us all. He was a great husband, a fabulous dad, and Papa to grandchildren, great grandchildren and recently, a great-great grandchild. He was an honourable and good man and we’ll miss him. A celebration of life will be held in the new year. Date to be determined. Donations may be made to the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission.

REIMER, Gisela Rosella 1938 - 2012 It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Gisela Rosella Reimer. She was taken far too soon by sudden onset of Lung Cancer on December 15, 2012. Her life began on October 2, 1938 in Curitiba, Brazil, living then in Witmarsum for several years. She immigrated to Canada in 1949, eventually settling down in Abbotsford, where she met and married Peter Reimer on November 4, 1956, then settled down in Vancouver where they raised 3 children. She is survived by husband Peter, their three children, many grandchildren, several great grandchildren and extended family. Many thanks to the Palliative Care Nurses and Doctors at the Abbotsford Tertiary Palliative Care Center. Funeral services were held earlier today at Clearbrook MB Church, Abbotsford with burial at Maclure Road Mennonite Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to MCC would be appreciated.

Edith May Jan. 27, 1921 - Dec. 13, 2012 Edith passed away peacefully at Dr. Stuart Pavilion, Ebenezer Home in Abbotsford on December 13th, in her 92nd year. She was predeceased by Howard, the love of her life. She is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by her family. Edith was as comfortable wearing a carpenter’s apron as a kitchen apron or gardener’s gloves. Over the years, she built 5 houses and later, numerous doll houses. At the same time, she crocheted fancy doilies, tended her vegetable garden, and baked the best apple pies ever. In the past few years, she spent many hours doing crafts with her great-greatgranddaughter, Frankie. She was an amazing woman, ahead of her time. The family is grateful for the loving support and care given to our beloved Mom and Grandma by the staff at Dr. Stuart Pavilion. A private family celebration of Edith’s life will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.bakerviewcrematorium.com

BRADLEY, Marjorie Louise (“Bear” to her family)

ROBINSON Olga “Jean” Mom passed away peacefully on December 14, 2012 at Bevan Lodge, Abbotsford, BC. Mom was born April 6, 1920 in Euphrasia, Twp, Ontario. She was the eldest of five children born to Hugh and Priscilla Miller and was raised in Saskatchewan where she met and married John Robinson in 1940. Mom is lovingly remembered by her sons Elwin (Carol), Glenn (Chris), daughter Donna Perreault, four grandchildren, five great grandchildren, sister Phyllis Friesen, brother Mervyn (Sylvia), brother-in-law Bob Foreman and many nieces, nephews and extended family. She was predeceased by her parents, brother Albert, sister Thelma Foreman, husband John (2005) and son-in-law Dwayne Perreault. Mom and Dad moved to Weyburn, SK in the early 1950’s where Mom was active in Eastern Star, the United Church, curling, square dancing and entertaining friends. They moved to White Rock in 1986 and spent their winters in Arizona where they made wonderful life-long friends. After Dad passed away Mom moved to Abbotsford to be closer to family. Many thanks to Dr. Pauls and the many staff at Bevan for their kindness and care to Mom. No service by Mom’s request. In lieu of flowers a donation to Canadian Diabetes or the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Mom’s name would be welcomed. Tributes and condolences may be left at: www.hendersonsabbotsfordfunerals.com

Henderson’s Funeral Home 604-854-5534

Passed away December 14, 2012, holding hands with Tom, her teenage sweetheart and her treasured husband for 67 years, something they have done from the day they first met in 1941. In her passing she also leaves her loving sons Bill, his wife Marguerite and grandchildren Matthew, Catherine and Jessica; and Norm and his wife Sherry and grandchildren Ashley and Courtney. Predeceased by parents William and Mabel and her sister Dorothy. Bear was a wonderfully warm and caring person to all who were welcomed by her contagious smile and friendly personality. Her happiest days were those spent with anything and everything to do with her grandchildren- these were the best days for Mother “Bear”. Born in Courtenay, BC, Marge’s early years were spent in the Vancouver Island towns of Port Alberni and Port Mellon where her dad was employed building sawmills. In the one room schoolhouses she attended Marge was called upon to teach the younger ones, a trait she passed on to her two boys. Her swimming abilities were amazing, developed in earnest from regular tosses off the log booms by the boys. When her family moved to Vancouver she honed her competitive tennis skills daily at Grandview Park. Marge attended Templeton High School and when she graduated from Britannia in East Vancouver, her mother enrolled her in a

stenographer course at Sprott Shaw College and her career was off and running. She was a secretary to the sales manager of the Canadian Fish company and later a credit advisor and customer service associate for Timothy Eaton’s until she retired. Marge met Tom through her girlfriend while working at the Five & Dime Store in East Vancouver and one ice cream cone later they became lifelong partners. When Tom joined the Navy during the Second World War, Marge had the distinction of being the only sailor’s girl who wrote a letter to Tom every single day for three years. Bear’s real work was her selfless service to everyone and everything. Whether it was being President of the Babe Ruth Baseball League, boy scout convenor, Sunday school teacher, baseball scorekeeper, typist for BC High School Boys Basketball Association or refreshment convenor for the Alzheimers’ Society for 10 years, she always put others ahead of herself. An avid football fan, Bear was a founding member of the BC Lionsbackers Club. She was also an original season ticket hold to the Seattle Seahawks, travelling with Tom to Seattle on Sunday mornings for the famous tailgate parties, which they brought back to BC and the Lions on game days. When Marge and Tom retired and moved from their East Vancouver home to Abbotsford, she quickly became the Abbotsford Panthers best fan and later chief supporter to the travelling Kelowna Owls. The players fondly remember her cooking and fun loving nature. We will miss you Bear but your strength and positive spirit will be forever with us! A private, family remembrance will be held at a later date. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff at Worthington Pavilion whose professionalism was displayed in the diagnoses, treatment and loving care that Marjorie received during the year. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of one’s choice would be appreciated. Online condolences to the family may be made to www.wiebeandjeskefh.com.
