CANCER

School visit special for cycling cops The Cops for Cancer are back and riding through Langley. MATTHEW CLAXTON

The Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley rolled into Langley on Tuesday, making a special stop halfway through their nine-day bike ride. The 21 riders – all law enforcement officers from the Lower Mainland – are raising money to fight cancer, particularly pediatric cancer. Their first stop on Tuesday was at Shortreed Elementary, where six-year-old cancer survivor Carson Post gave them memorial beads. The metal beads, each marked with a C, are for Christopher Sperger, a Shortreed student who died of cancer in 2007. Sperger, like Post, was a junior team member, taken along to Tour de Valley events and stops. Delta PD’s Dave Ogilvy told the students at Shortreed about what the riders’ beads stand for

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Carson Post handed out beads in memory of Christopher Sperger to the visiting Tour de Valley riders. – one for each day on the ride, a blue bead for a rainy day, black beads for falling off their bikes. Young cancer patients in B.C. can enter a bead program, Ogilvy explained. They get beads for chemotherapy and radiation treatments, nights spent in the hospital, and having blood drawn, among other things. The beads help remind the riders that they can’t stop and

give up just because they’re tired. The kids they’re riding for can’t stop. Among the riders this year are Langley’s Mark Peterse. This is Peterse’s second brush with the ride. As an Auxiliary RCMP officer with the Langley detachment in 2013, Peterse was set to go on the ride that year. Instead, he got a call that he had been accepted to training as a fulltime Mountie.

Peterse is now a constable with the Surrey RCMP and is back with the ride, this time as a full-fledged officer. “When I am struggling with those early mornings or pushing up a big hill on the bike, I remember the kids undergoing chemo and radiation who don’t complain,” said Peterse. The riders have already been through some rain, including a deluge on Saturday, and are now looking forward to some more nice weather as they ride through Langley, Surrey, and Delta over the next few days. The longest day of riding was Sunday, when they rode from Hope to Boston Bar and back, about 140 kilometres through the Fraser Canyon. “It’s such an amazing community,” said volunteer and past rider Karen Cryer, with the Langley RCMP. Boston Bar is a small town where almost everyone comes out to greet the riders every year. Assistant captain Les Betker said the team is doing well. “It has been fantastic,” Betker said. “They’re a very athletic group.” >More at langleyadvance.com

Local candidates vied to offer the best plan on funding light rail through the valley. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A Conservative promise to partially fund light rail to Langley was met with cheers by party supporters, but criticism from opposing candidates. On Monday, the Conservatives announced up to $700 million in funding for the Surrey light rail proposal. That plan would create a light rail passenger line from the current SkyTrain line down Fraser Highway and into Langley City.

The plan was announced twice by stable, predictable funding for the ability to Conservative MPs James Moore and plan long term,” said Rebecca Smith, NDP Stockwell Day, first in Surrey and later in candidate for Cloverdale-Langley City.

ENVIRONMENT

Rivers healthy TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

With water and nature on everyone’s minds at the Langley Township-hosted BC Rivers Day festival Sunday, members of two of Langley’s most environmentally active groups reflected on the summer drought. Langley and the rest of B.C. experienced one of the hottest, and driest, summers on record. Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) executive director Nichole Marples said Langley has the benefit of having groundwater aquifers which help streams. “So although we didn’t get a lot of rainfall, and the water levels were lower than normal, those base flows from the aquifers do provide that cold water, so we didn’t have quite so many, ‘fish are being stranded, you have to come and get them calls,’ as we actually expected that we would,” Marples explained. “It was fairly on par with what we’ve had in the past.” If such droughts become the norm, it will threaten fish stocks, said Marples. “If we’re getting those really high water temperatures with really low base flows, it messes with oxygen levels, as well, so then it makes it harder to sustain those tiny little fish that are in the streams,” she said. Nicomekl Enhancement Society raises about 250,000 salmon fry each year. “We have enough shade up there that all the fry survived,” treasurer Bob Knudsen said. Sunday’s celebration included animal displays, facepainting, crafts such as dream fish painting, entertainment, 25 interactive and activity booths, and a hot dog and veggie dog barbecue by the enhancement society. > More at langleyadvance.com

ANIMAL WELFARE

Injured kitten takes to new wheels Cassidy tried out a wheelchair.

MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Cassidy, the kitten who lost both of his back feet shortly after birth, has been fitted for a wheelchair. Andrew Phillips of Handicapped Pets Canada met with Shelly Roche of Tiny Kittens last week, and they got Cassidy fitted out to take his first steps. Phillips had offered his services shortly after Cassidy appeared on the Tiny Kittens website and Facebook page. Because of the wide exposure from Tiny Kittens and local media, there was a lot of support for finding some kind of solution that would allow Cassidy to move around freely. “We got inundated with calls from the general public wanting to help Cassidy,” said

Cassidy (above) tried out his new wheelchair last week. Stephanie, DJ, and Michelle (right) were found locked in abandoned cat crates. Phillips. The chair will be extendable as Cassidy grows larger, and when he outgrows this the kitten can move into a new chair. “He still needs to grow into it a little bit, and get a little stronger, but I think it will be really wonderful for him,” Roche said in an email to the Langley Advance. Cassidy was found living in a feral cat colony in rural Langley. He had apparently lost his back feet shortly after birth, but had sur-

vived almost nine weeks when the landowner trapped him and gave him to Tiny Kittens to care for.

Cats found Langley’s animal shelter has again taken in cats that were found abandoned and boxed up in public. A staff member’s aunt found the latest additions to the shelter recently when she saw two pet crates sitting on the side of the road in South Langley. “She thought it was kind of strange,” said

she found a cat and a kitten in one and another cat in the other. The woman immediately brought all three cats into the shelter, where they are now all doing well. “Luckily it wasn’t too hot, and luckily they weren’t hit by vehicles,” Baker said. No food or water had been left in the cat crates. Over the past year the Langley Animal Protection Society has taken in a num-

ber of cats found in cardboard boxes or Rubbermaid containers. If people can’t bring in animals, LAPS will go and collect them, Baker stressed. There’s no need to abandon animals. Just before that, LAPS took in another set of cats. When a housebound Langley woman took in a stray, she quickly found out it was pregnant and in labour. The woman called for LAPS while the cat had two kittens in her house. At LAPS, the cat had two more kittens. Just hours later, six one-day-old orphaned kittens were brought in. Because bottle-feeding the six extra kittens would have been difficult, the new mom cat was recruited to act as a surrogate mother. She took on the care of all 10 kittens. “We’re pretty full,” said Baker of the number of cats and kittens in the shelter now. “Hopefully this is the last of the kitten season.”

wo things need to change if we are to start shifting Canada back towards real democracy. We need serious electoral reform to improve the way we vote, and we need to start electing candidates who will stand up to party leaders and demand that constituents are more important than party policy. But before that, we need to get rid of the farcical fixed-election-date legislation that is completely at odds with our parliamentary system of government. The illusion of fixed federal election dates brought in by Stephen Harper’s crew – and quickly ignored by that same mass of political entropy when the first subsequent election was called a full year before the supposed fixed date (also proving how silly the idea is) – serves only to help concentrate power in the prime minister’s office. It reinforces the idea that we elect a prime minister the way Americans elect their president every four years. We elect local representatives – Members of Parliament – who in turn have the power to elect the prime minister from among their ranks. The leader of the party that wins the most local ridings – the most MPs – tends to become prime minster.

flows. A glance around any Canadian community would confirm we don’t do that. If we did, we wouldn’t have hit this year’s tipping point: there are now more Canadians over 65 than under 15, for the first time ever. This will no doubt spark some concerned articles about our aging population, and even the possibility of “demographic collapse,” as though we were facing a childless wasteland of a future. We suggest that Canadian seniors will actually do pretty well in the coming years. There will be challenges, of course, but our country is wealthy, and no only do people generally want the best for their parents and grandparents, seniors are perfectly able to look after themselves. They’re a desirable demographic, much courted by politicians, thanks to the fact that they actually vote. No, if we’re seeing more seniors and fewer children, we might want to be careful in the coming years not to neglect the next generation. With a larger population retired and a smaller one replacing them in the workforce, we need to make sure that the children out there now are ready for the world they’ll inherit. It’s impossible to know with certainty what we’ll face in the future, but the next generations will certainly face challenges. They’ll be replacing many hands with few hands, as the number of children per family shrinks. They’ll have to be trained to work smart, not just hard. It’s going to be creativity, flexibility, and skill that wins out in the future. If we can’t make sure that the next generations are able to take their place in a globalized and often ruthless world economy, then who will take care of the growing ranks of seniors? Someone’s got to do it, and it will fall to those currently in elementary school. – M.C.

Letters to the editor

Celebrate courage of seniors Dear Editor, Today is the International Day of the Older Person and National Seniors Day, a day set aside in the year to acknowledge the contributions of seniors worldwide. As B.C.’s Seniors Advocate, I am encouraging a celebration of our senior citizens in this province. It may be your dad, your mom, your grandparent, or maybe it’s you we are celebrating. At the Office of the Seniors Advocate, we focus on systemic issues that affect a large number of seniors. We tackle housing and health care, gaps in home support, income support, and transportation. So much of our work looks at what’s wrong when it comes to seniors, but today I want to focus on what’s right. And what is right are the truly astounding qualities I see in seniors as I travel to every corner of the province meeting with seniors face to face. Today I urge you to celebrate the courage of seniors: The 80-year-old woman with

severe arthritis who braves driving rain, but still walks several kilometres to and from the grocery story to get supplies for dinner; The father who decides to become a university student for the first time at 70; or The widowed grandparent who steps up to parent a grandchild after raising five kids of her own. Today is a day to celebrate the selflessness of seniors. In virtually every sector of society, it’s easy to see this in action. Individual seniors want to help in the diverse communities they live in. According to StatsCan, Canadians 65 and over, volunteer on average 220 hours per year, higher than any age group. They do it not for their resumes or for graduation requirements, they do it for the most part, because they get a deep satisfaction from helping others. One look at the composition of our service groups tells us this kind of giving is being lost as time goes on. What I am also reflecting on

Vote to protect environment Dear Editor, I want my vote in this election to stand strong on the issue of climate change and our urgent need to protect our environment. I want my grandchildren to experience clean air and water so that they are able to enjoy the benefits of living in the best country in the world. We have to be tough and put the quality of our life before economic greed. We need our government to take the appropriate actions and create environmental laws that protect our environment. Most importantly, our government must hold those

accountable who deliberately destroy our environment by imposing more than fines. I want better protection of our natural resources. I want us to leave an environmental legacy for future generations. We can elect a government that represents our collective voice. Time is ticking. We can’t afford to wait any longer to take these important measures. Please listen and take action for the Canada that we love. On Oct. 19, let’s get out in record numbers to vote for a Canada we believe in. Kim Bucholtz, Aldergrove

today is the profound commitment and tenacity I see in many of the seniors I meet. I think of the wife who traveled hours each day by bus to be with her husband at mealtimes. I remember the letter I received from an 83-year-old man who is caring for his wife with severe dementia, declining home support, saying he just wants to be the one to put her to bed each night. The seniors I hear from know what they want and many of them are willing to fight, and fight hard to get what they feel they and their loved ones deserve. I’d like us to also acknowledge another extraordinary quality that so many of our older citizens possess – an unbelievable ability to adapt to change, not just small shifts in the way things are done, but dramatic societal change on a global scale. The variety and magnitude of change that our older population has experienced is almost unfathomable – from streetcars to high-speed trains, brooms to vacuum robots, inkwells to iPads, courtship to online dating, and the list goes on. The individual contributions of our seniors could fill this newspaper for decades to come. It’s these unique experiences of the older people in your life that I invite you to celebrate today. Seniors are not all the same. Their likes and dislikes, choices and needs are as different at 80, as they were at 18. Today we aren’t celebrating “seniors” we are celebrating Edna, Bev, Mohinder, Walter and the other 816,000 amazing individuals who happen to be over 65 living in this province. On this day, we say a heartfelt thank you to everything you offer all of us. B.C. Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie

The story of a kitten that lost both of his legs, lived feral for nine weeks, and is now being nursed back to health by Langley volunteers touched the hearts of many. Readers weigh in:

Duolynx Design & Print: This little Cassidy is a fighter (and a lover)!

Jenney Drummond: Hope he gets better soon and finds a good home.

Mary Rye: Great article! May I add: pet owners, please spay and neuter your pets so no more little feral babies are born to suffer. I’m so glad Cassidy was rescued and is getting care.

Book lauds Harper A university professor praises PM. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

One of the more unusual books published this election season is by Abbotsford university professor John Redekop Redekop, a semi-retired instructor who has taught at Langley’s Trinity Western University, self-published The Harper Record And More this year. The book is literally a chronological list of electoral and legislative achievements made by Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party. It starts with the 2003 merger of the Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservative parties into the modern Conservative Party. It then quickly goes into the election of Harper’s first minority government in 2006. With a forward by Preston Manning, the book is described as a resource for Conservatives answering questions about the record of the Harper government over the nine years since it first won a minority government.

Apple festival marks 10 years The taste of heritage apples is on offer in a Langley park. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

T

he crisp taste and crunchy texture of a fall apple have a long history in Langley, and what Heritage Apple Day is all about. The 10th anniversary of Heritage Apple Day will take place Saturday, Oct. 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Derby Reach Regional Park. The annual event celebrates and spreads knowledge of heritage apples, and the role apples and orchards played in the early settlement of the area. Taking place at the Heritage Area off Allard Crescent, the festival is located near one of the oldest orchards in British

Langley Advance files

One-year-old Morgan Friesen munched on a few apples at the 2014 Heritage Apple Day. This year’s event takes is Oct. 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Derby Reach Regional Park. Columbia, noted Joakim Nilsson, one of the organizers of the event. Over the years, the event has changed. The first Apple Day in 2006 consisted mostly of volunteers clearing out brush and brambles off some of the ancient apple trees along the shore of the

Fraser River. Since then, volunteers have added entertainment and educational events, have unveiled a “floating” apple orchard planted above ground (so as not to disturb possible archaeological sites) and hosted historical re-enactors. But one thing has been

constant: each Heritage Apple Day has involved an apple tasting. A few highlights of this year’s event will include: • Local historian Jane Watt will give talks about the history of the Heritage Area. • There will be 20 pounds of Blushing Susans for tasting. The variety was developed in 1993. • Historical re-enactors will demonstrate black powder muskets. • Plein air artists will be at work in the park. • There will also be interactive games and pioneer chores for the kids to try. • There will be plenty of heritage varieties of apples, many of them not commonly grown in decades, available to taste. The event is sponsored by the Derby Reach/Brae Island Parks Association with assistance from Metro Vancouver Regional Parks, the Pacific Parklands Foundation and the Township of Langley.

history

Looking back through the files of the Langley Advance. Eighty Years Ago

Sixty Years Ago

ˠ The National Parks Board decided to reconstruct some of the buildings of the old Hudson Bay fort in Fort Langley. ˠ Negotiations were underway for a modern motion picture theatre to be housed in the building formerly occupied by a hardward store. A trial run had proved the Athletic Hall unsuitable.

ˠ One of the biggest fire scares to hit Langley in 17 years drove residents of apartments above Model Meat Market into the streets in their nightclothes. The midnight alarm resulted in some fire and water damage, but smoke damage was extensive.

September 26, 1935

Seventy Years Ago September 27, 1945

ˠ Schools were overcrowded. The school board hired two new teachers and added two classes, one of which was to be held in rented space in the Masonic Hall. ˠ After the federal Family Allowance came into being, Langley School Board stopped providing elementary students with free pencils, pen-holders, scribblers, erasers, and other supplies. It was reputed that Langley was the only district offering such service.

September 29, 1955

Twenty Years Ago September 27, 1995

ˠ The Coalition of Concerned Citizens of Langley asked Township council to slow mushroom barn approvals and construction. ˠ Langley City spent $250,000 into converting Douglas Park to a passive park. ˠ Vicwood Hills, a development proposal of a golf course and 157 homes in South Langley, could bring sewer and water to Brookswood.

HOUSING

Condos a waiting game Demand was high all summer for real estate. MATTHEW CLAXTON mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The craze for housing in Langley began this summer with bidding wars for houses, and it wound down with people camping out for more than a week to catch coveted condos. Shirley Thomasson and her husband Arni were like many retired couples in the Lower Mainland: they were looking to downsize. They had already looked at possibly buying into the Parkside condos north of 80th Avenue along 208th Street. “We particularly wanted a corner unit, which were all sold out,” said Shirley. She and Arni were told that when the Parkside 1 condo went up for sale, there was a line-up for five days in advance outside the sales centre. “My husband was just eager to get the one we

I

had chosen,” Shirley said. That was how the couple wound up camping out in shifts, with their grandkids, for eight days up to Sept. 12, for a chance to buy their favoured unit in Parkside 2. As soon as they turned up on Sept. 4, people noticed, and within a few days there were 19 people lined up with lawn chairs, sleeping bags, and camp stoves. All of those people are waiting for a project that won’t be finished until late in 2016. “We have a lot of people who have been waiting for this phase for more than a year,” said Sean Bouchard of Quadra homes. While Sold Out signs are going up at nearby popular townhouse projects as well, single-family homes appear to be even more popular. Real estate agents have reported that bidding wars began again this summer over houses in most neighbourhoods of Langley. “Such limited supply of inventory,” said realtor Jonathan Erickson.

“So when things come up, it’s too many buyers fighting for the same house.” Realtor Alf Deglen said it appears to already be slowing down a little bit. “For everybody, it was real stressful,” he said of the hot housing market. The shortage is not likely to be reduced much in the near future in Langley Township. From January to August this year builders in Langley Township created 177 single family homes, about the same as last year’s 171 over the same period. However, in the same period in 2015, 625 multi-family homes, townhouses and condos, were created. That’s up from the 466 created January-August last year. For those moving into the Parkside in a year or so, the long wait just to buy hasn’t been a bad thing. “We’ve already met our neighbours, it’s the coolest thing,” said Georgie Westbrook, one of those waiting. >more at langleyadvance. com

ne of the requests I received about my Italian Bread Soup was for a vegetarian version, and it is with this column I am happy to oblige. Now let’s be honest: I can’t think of anything vegetarian that would replicate the flavour of sausage, but I guess if you are vegetarian you more than likely don’t want that flavour anyway. This recipe otherwise is very reminiscent to the original one. This recipe is easy and screams “classic Italian.” Vegetarian or not, I think this finished dish at your next dinner party will be a splash. > More at langleyadvance.com

There are two upcoming programs to help people tidy up. HEATHER COLPITTS hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley Township has a hazardous household materials disposal event and starting this year Langley City residents can take part as well. Residents have the opportunity to drop off hazardous waste items, small appliances, and more Oct. 17 and 18 at the Township Operations Centre, 4700 224th St. Collection starts at 8:30 a.m. both days and runs until 4 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on the Sunday. There’s a list of accepted materials that includes household chemicals (bleach, toilet bowl cleaner, oven cleaner, etc.), shop items like furniture stripper, paint and thinners/solvents as well as items like burned out fluorescent tubes and bulbs, electronics, empty propane tanks, batteries, and antifreeze. People can also turn in small appliances, smoke detectors, mercury thermostats and other household items. Proof of residency is required in either the Township or the City in order to drop off items and people can only drop off household

quantities. Industrial or business quantities must have other arrangements. This two-day event does not include items that are part of normal curbside recycling and greenwaste programs by the Township or City. Those unable to get their items to the event can find out how to recycle or dispose of them. Check out the Recycling Council of B.C. website at rcbc.ca/ recyclepedia or call the Recycling Hotline at 604-RECYCLE (604732-9253).

Bikers in business suits? Yep, that’s a thing; or at least it was Sunday in Fort Langley. Smashing the stereotype that most motorcyclists sport long beards, jeans, leather jackets, and boots, many of the bikers involved in Sunday’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) rode, looking dapper in three-piece suits. With rides in 410 cities from 79 countries, DGR’s focus is to raise awareness and funds in the battle against prostate cancer. DGR’s goal was to raise $3 million this year to assist in finding a cure for a disease that kills 1,300 men a day worldwide. Funds raised in Canada go to Prostate Cancer Canada. The fundraiser’s website is gentlemansride.com. Langley DGR organizer Shawn Gurney lost his mom, Luellen, to breast cancer, around Christmastime last year. “There’s a ton of breast cancer charity out there, but not much for most of other things, so this is what I decided to go with,” Gurney said. The motorcycle convoy went through Langley, Surrey, White Rock and Crescent Beach. Gurney had 15 people signed up but was pleasantly surprised Sunday to see double that number ready to roll. The first-ever Langley DGR raised roughly $2,200, and Gurney plans on holding it again next year.

Grape cause: On Saturday, Sept. 26,

Township 7 Vineyards and Winery hosted its annual Grape Stomp benefiting Ronald McDonald House of BC, which provides accommodation for seriously ill children and their families when they travel to Vancouver for their child’s major treatment. Teams of six, most dressed in costume, grabbed grapes from the vineyard and then ‘smushed’ away in large barrels at the South Langley winery, for both the cause and also bragging rights.

Fall arrives: Fall brings colour to the landscape, as seen along 64th Avenue in Langley as a passerby makes his way west along the road.

Knights coach calls brawl ‘deeply upsetting’ Fallout continues from a junior B hockey donnybrook Sept. 24 in Langley. TROY LANDREVILLE tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Langley Knights co-owner, general manager, and head coach John Craighead has offered his take on last Thursday’s bench-clearing brawl at the George Preston Recreation Centre, that has the RCMP involved. Craighead’s junior B Knights were trailing the Mission City Outlaws 9-3 on Sept. 24 when the donnybrook broke out at the 2:23 mark of the third period. The bench clearing incident resulted in 263 penalty minutes and the ejection of several players, and the game was halted at that point. While players were fighting on the ice, Craighead, himself, got involved in an altercation. “First and foremost, I would like to clarify that what transpired during the game was deeply upsetting to myself, as a coach, our entire team, parents and our fans,” Craighead wrote, in an email sent to the Langley Advance Saturday night. “This is not the type of behaviour we would like to be getting media recognition for when we

Connor Hurley also scored a major, running outside after Lacroix made a fake to Ethan Bernardin up the middle of the Bears line. David Wegert capped the scoring with a pair of converts. The North Langley defence was particularly strong as it prevented the Mustangs from gaining a first down.

Township For the week of October 1, 2015

Sunday at McLeod Athletic Park, the Langley Stampeders fell two points shy of improving to 2-0 in their 12-man midget football season. On a beautiful day for football, North Surrey Bears edged the Stamps 15-14 to drop Langley’s record to 1-1. Langley got off to a strong start when defensive back Kyle Clarot intercepted a Bears pass and returned the ball 42 yards for a touchdown Strong defensive play by both squads limited the offence, with Surrey conceding a safety to end the first quarter. Defence dominated the second frame, as well, with the Stamps picking up two points to carry an 11-0 lead into the half. After the break, Langley forced another safety, and North Surrey finally broke the goose egg late in the third by blocking a kick and recovering the ball in the Stamps’ end zone. In the fourth quarter, Langley gave up a safety and then picked up a single on a missed field goal to move ahead 14-9 with under six minutes left. Surrey, abetted by Langley penalties, had an opportunity to take the lead, with the ball deep in Langley territory. However, a red zone stand from Langley shut the Bears down. Then, with less than 50 seconds left on the clock, the Bears scored the winning points on a beautiful 35-yard pass play. The Stamps got the ball back with 40 seconds remaining but weren’t able to score, as North Surrey earned the win.

OBITUARIES

Jeffrey, Bernice Our little hero passed away on Wednesday Sept. 23, 2015. She was born in Grandview, Manitoba on March 5, 1931 and miraculously reached the age of 84. She was born with cerebral palsy and was unable to walk or speak. In spite of this she developed a terrific sense of humour, love of travel, love of music, gardening (thanks Joan), and love of people. She managed with tremendous courage and spirit and effort to communicate her wants and needs through body language and the few movements she could make. Nothing could stop her from enjoying life and she did. Bernice lived for 20 years at home then resided at Woodlands and the last 20 years at Hunter Park under the auspices of the Langley Association for Community Living. Bernice was predeceased by her loving Father and Mother Clarence and Lillian Jeffrey, brothers and sisters in law Alton and Verda Jeffrey, Arnold and Merriam Kidd, John and Betty Jeffrey, and brother in law Lawrence Clegg. She is survived by Glenn and Margaret Jeffrey of Windfield B.C. and Verona Clegg of Langley and her many loving cousins. The family would like to thank the following for the years of the best care that could possibly be given: Langley Association for Community Living, Hunter Park and Staff past and present, Dr. Beth Watt, Vinge nurse Brian Robson, Dr. Fagan and Langley Memorial Hospital. A gathering will take place at her home to honor her life. Bon voyage sweety, we will all miss you. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Langley Association for Community living.
