Bad apples & binners City hall may be trying to He goes thedumpster name of slam the lidbyon Spideybut man divers, one ‘bottle guy’ says don’t judge

raig unloads 10- and five-cent bottles and cans from a milk crate attached to the back of his rusty bike into the Chilliwack bottle depot’s red trays. Glass bottles are heavy and take up a lot of room so he can only carry so many on his bike. He estimates this load will net him about $10, but that is likely an exaggeration. While he packs the trays, another man unloads cases of Budweiser empties from his pickup truck. An attractive, well-dressed woman pulls up to the depot next to him in an SUV. She is obstructed from getting to the entrance because of Craig and the man with the pickup and both offer to get out of her way. But as she passes by, Craig says he gets a derisive sneer from the woman. “People like that look down on me because I’m just a bottle guy,” he says. Craig—who asked that his last name not be used— logs about 100 kilometres a day, seven days a week, on the streets of Chilliwack. He works hard for the approximately $20 to $60 a day he earns collecting bottles, cans and other containers with deposits—money he uses for what he calls “extras.” Craig wanted to tell his story, to present what it is like to be a bottle guy, or “binner,” because he was upset about a recent crackdown by the City of Chilliwack on people like him.

hilliwack elementary students in public schools did worse on their foundation skills assessment (FSA) tests in 2010 than in previous years, according to the Fraser Institue’s annual report card on British Columbia schools. But school district superintendent Corinne McCabe said the test data are unreliable markers of school success. The right-wing think tank released its annual—and controversial—report Monday. The report ranks schools based on the scores of FSA tests given to Grade 4 and Grade 7 students. McCabe, however, said the FSA data is practiEB IRST cally useless because of First reported on the number of students chilliwacktimes.com who don’t take the test, and because Chilliwack’s elementary schools don’t include Grade 7 students, whose test results are used for the rankings. “Because of that really the rankings don’t represent how our schools are doing,” she told the Times. “It’s not an appropriate way to use the scores even if we had all kids writing . . . There are just so many factors that it’s not a meaningful piece of information.” According to the report, most Chilliwack public schools did worse in 2010 than in previous years. Of 17 public schools in Chilliwack, 15 came in below their five-year

No butts about it
Need to be more careful
The Times online
fter a weekend blaze, fire officials are reminding the public to be extremely careful when disposing of smoking materials. A fire broke out at a First Avenue apartment building Saturday night after a resident emptied a full ashtray into a plastic garbage bag. A smoke detector alerted the resident and a tenant, and the blaze was put out with the help of a fire extinguisher. Damage was limited to the kitchen stove and cabinets, but the incident prompted the Chilliwack Fire Department to issue a warning about the hazards of “smoking materials.” Assistant fire chief Ian Josephson said cigarette dumps should be disposed of in a deep, non-combustible ashtray. Before being discarded in the garbage, butts

hen most people have a nonemergency medical issue they head to a walk-in clinic or make an appointment with the family doctor to get some relief and some answers. But because of the number of patients GPs see in a day, rarely does anyone get to spend any substantial time with a doctor.

low levels. “Our main goal is to try to enhance that as much as we can,” she said. Each talk will have two or three residents giving a presentation followed by questions and answers.

Sales still stagnant
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
fter a lacklustre January, local realtors are hoping for big sales in February in advance of new mortgage rules that take effect in March. There were 111 residential sales in Chilliwack last month worth $30.5 million, down slightly from the 122 sales in January 2010 worth $35.3 million, according to the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB). In December, there were 120 sales worth $31.7 million. While full recovery has not yet occurred, CADREB is cautiously optimistic about a return to more normal numbers. “We’re still waiting for the U.S. market to fire on all cylinders again before we can recover completely,”
BINNERS, from page 1 In January, the city ran an advertisement aimed atdiscouraging scavengers. In it, the city said that taking containers from recycling bins is a bylaw offence but that binners need to be caught in the act. The city suggested anyone who witnesses someone going through their recycling should call the RCMP’s non-emergency line. “We have problems in all areas of the city—Promontory, Fairfield Island, Yarrow,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz told the Times in January. “Some have become so bold they interrupt the services of Emterra and ask them to wait. It’s becoming a bigger and bigger issue.” But Craig doesn’t think that’s fair. He says there are only a handful of bad apples going through recycling bins, giving all binners a bad name. Craig has no time for binners who make a mess or for those who don’t respect some of the unwritten rules of the street. “I’m starting to get mad,” he said. “And it’s ruining it for the guys trying to eat.” Craig doesn’t collect empties because he needs to survive. But he estimates there are about 30 binners that ply the streets and some of them do indeed need the
said CADREB president Kyle Hislop in a press release. “However, the normalizing of the market is welcome.” But the optimism over the normalization of the local market is tempered by a concern that some first-time homebuyers will be shut out come March when new mortgage rules take effect. “ The board lobbied against changes, as any tightening in eligibility such as a reduction of the maximum length in amortization, hits the important first-time buyer the hardest,” Hislop said. “Home ownership infuses many spinoff benefits to the local economy, and we didn’t want to see any further obstacles.” Under the changes, if a potential buyer earlier qualified for $300,000, after March, he or she will then qualify for only $275,000, according
to CADREB. “That squeezes a number of people out of the market, and we want home ownership to be more affordable, not less,” said Hislop. When the new federal mortgage rules were announced, CADREB expressed relief they weren’t as damaging as first feared. On Jan. 17, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced the government would reduce the maximum amortization period for government-backed mortgages to 30 years from 35 years. The other two changes announced were that Canadians will only be able to borrow up to 85 per cent of the value of their homes, down from 90 per cent, and the government is withdrawing backing for lines of credit secured by people’s homes. On these latter two changes, Hislop said he was supportive.
Same suspect for armed robberies
olice believe the same man is responsible for a trio of armed robberies this weekend in Chilliwack and Abbotsford. Mounties say a man between the age of 25 and 35 showed a hand gun when he robbed the Parkwood Motor Lodge on Young Road Saturday around 10:05 p.m. Just 50 minutes later, a man of the same description was reported to have held up the Popkum Esso. The next day, Abbotsford police responded to a similar armed robbery at about 11:20 p.m. at the Ramada Inn. Police believe the same man is responsible for all three incidents. “At this point we’re working with the Abbotsford Police
Department to identify the suspect,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. The suspect is a black man, between five-foot-10 and sixfeet, with black hair, a short black beard, and of medium build. At the time of the robberies he wore a dark-coloured zip-up hoodie, possibly with “Vancouver 2010” on it, along with blue jeans and a lightcoloured baseball hat. In one of the robberies he was seen leaving in a dark red station wagon heading towards Highway 1.
◗ Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Mounties at 604-792-4611, or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222TIPS.
Need it to survive income to survive. “There is this one guy who got scooped all freaking day the other day,” Craig said. “The next thing I know he is freezing and is trying to roll a cigarette out of old butts. So I gave him my cigarettes and told him to save them for rainy days and I bought him a coffee at McDonald’s. All because these losers scooped this guy.” Craig isn’t perfect and he “hit rock bottom” a while back after his father died and then his 20year-son died. He lost his job and while he has some money coming in, the binning keeps him busy, keeps him fit, he makes a little extra money and he gets to meet people. There is one guy who recently lost his wife who Craig stops to chat and have a drink with. And a couple of “regulars” leave empties out for him. In exchange for one woman’s deposit recyclables, he takes her bins out each garbage day and brings them back to her gate once they have been emptied. Craig said he generally has a good relationship with most other binners and with many residents who don’t mind what he is doing.
Some even say “hello” and chat. One woman gave him a Spiderman toque, which he wears all winter and gets called Spiderman by kids on the playground as he rides by. “There are guys that do it for drugs, guys that make a mess. But don’t judge a book by its cover,” Craig said. “Everyone has a story. One day I’m in a nice apartment on First Avenue and the next I’m down by the Hope River making a fire to keep warm.” Craig isn’t on the streets now and he is making ends meet. He just thinks it’s a little unfair to crack down on the poorest of the poor who are, at the end of the day, just collecting cans to survive.

Possible shift in schools for Yarrow grads
POLITICS POSSIBLE PREMIER
Meeting held tonight at 7 p.m.

B.C. Liberal Party leadership candidate George Abbott responds to a question from a local farmer during a campaign stop in Chilliwack on Saturday at Decade’s Coffee Club. Abbott was asked what he would do about overlapping government bureaucracies that affect agricultural operations. After Kevin Falcon and Christy Clark, Abbott is the third contender to visit Chilliwack.
arrow students may be headed to Mt. Slesse middle school instead of Vedder middle next September. Vedder middle is bursting at the seams this year, with 652 students attending the 600-student capacity school, and the Chilliwack school district is meeting with the public on Tuesday, Feb. 8 to discuss a proposed boundary change that would send Yarrow students to Mt. Slesse middle instead. Right now Mt. Slesse has 501 students with room for a total of 650, and the proposed change would take the pressure off Vedder and help balance the student population between the two
schools. The secondary catchment for both schools would still be Sardis secondary. “We’re trying to maximize the facilities that we have and balance out the enrolment as much as we possibly can between the middle schools to make sure we have long-term, sustainable enrolment patterns at all of our schools,” said school district superintendent Corinne McCabe. Tu e s d a y ’s m e e t i n g i s scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Yarrow elementary school gym, and anyone interested in finding out more about the proposed change is encouraged to attend. McCabe, Mt. Slesse principal Dan Heisler and Yarrow principal Kirk Savage will be on hand to make presentations and answer questions. ◗ For more information, call Yarrow elementary school at 604-823-4408.

Michelle Obama flunks BBQ 101
t doesn’t happen too often— but every now and then I accidentally maneuver myself into just the right place at the right time. So it was this past week as I was working my way through Holy Smoke – The Big Book of North Carolina Barbecue. All of a sudden, portions of the book were being quoted in the American press by virtually every single outlet, large and small. It seems the First Lady, Michelle Obama, stepped in it big time. She was praising the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, which was just selected as the host site of the 2012 Democratic convention. So far so good. But then she made a colossal blunder by drawing attention to Charlotte’s “great barbecue.” Now that may seem like a harmless throw-away remark up here. But down south this was a major slip-up. Imagine Stephen Harper lavishing praise on Saskatoon for great sushi. Or Michael Ignatieff pulling for Russia over Canada in men’s Olympic hockey. Oh, wait a minute . . . that one actually happened. No, North Carolinians, better known as Tar Heels, take their BBQ very seriously. And one thing that’s beyond the obvious is that Charlotte does not make great BBQ. Michelle’s innocent comment was taken as a major insult
Crime Matters to those areas where great BBQ is a proud tradition. BBQ takes on a near religious quality in the famed BBQ belt comprised of Texas, Kansas City, Memphis and North Carolina. If you forever want to mark yourself as an outsider; someone who just doesn’t fit in, make a derogatory remark about BBQ in these parts. Or just as bad, show your BBQ ignorance as Michelle Obama so thoroughly did. Here’s an example of how serious southerners take their BBQ—and this comes from South Carolina (a baby brother, wannabe on the BBQ trail). An employee of the Cotton Mills Company asked for a couple days off work because he wanted to prepare a big, family reunion BBQ. He was denied permission. Nonetheless, Henry Williams ditched work and tended to his BBQ obligations. When he returned he had not only lost his job but was evicted from the company house he lived in. Williams brought a civil suit against the company alleging
wrongful dismissal and eviction without cause. The case made it all the way to the state Supreme Court where the defendants made an unusual request. They asked the judge not to let the jury know the actual reason Williams had been absent. They argued that any man who skipped work to tend to BBQ would likely bias the jury in his favour. The judge denied their application. But it turned out they were right. Williams got his job and house back as well as damages. BBQ and politics can be a deadly mix. Rufus Edmisten conceded his 1984 campaign for governor of North Carolina crashed when he called BBQ “that damnable stuff.” An editorial in the Raleigh Times, more than 50 years ago warned, “No man has ever been elected governor of North Carolina without eating more barbecue than was good for him.” Obama cleaned up in North Carolina a couple years ago. If he loses the state in 2012 there’s a good chance his wife’s BBQ gaffe will have had something to do with it. ◗ John Martin is a criminologist at the University of the FraserValley.

n the wake of the public outrage following news of the Whistler sled dog killings, it’s worth wondering why the unnecessary deaths of dogs prompts this kind of reaction while the unnecessary deaths of children often does not. Sure, most of us are sickened by details of the dogs’ deaths. They were destroyed inhumanely after living in less-than-ideal conditions. But why are we also not sickened by the deaths of B.C. kids born into third-world conditions and families illequipped to care for them? Where are the rallies, the tweet-a-thons and the Facebook groups dedicated to them? As the public anger over the sled dogs gathered force, Premier Gordon Campbell wasted no time setting up a task force to look into the sled dog killing. Campbell’s outrage was no doubt helped along by concerns that Whistler tourism could suffer in the backlash over the dog cull. Curiously, no similar government reaction followed when one week earlier child and families advocate Mary Ellen TurpelLafond released a report on the deaths of 21 infants. Her report fell like a lead balloon, followed by silence. Certainly not all of those children could have been saved. And the social issues surrounding those deaths—poverty, drug addiction and mental health problems— are complex and defy easy or cheap solutions. Until we are concerned enough to care, however, kids like these will continue to fall through the cracks of our social safety net. Surely they deserve our moral indignation—and our public resources—as much as the sled dogs do.

MP’s newsletter misleading on veterans support Editor: Re: Misleading Winter 2011 newsletter from MP Chuck Strahl. On the front page of Chuck Strahl’s Winter 2011 newsletter, he is pictured with veterans on a trip to Juno Beach—he was then Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs. Good intro for a guy who couldn’t be bothered to show up at the veterans’ rally Nov. 6, 2010 in his own riding. On the second page, he outlines the veteran’s benefits with a positive spin. Subsequent to his newsletter delivered to every home in his riding, I was approached by many veterans. Their message was: “Wow! Did you see Chuck Strahl’s newsletter? His government is really supporting the veterans.” Strahl’s newsletter totally misleads his constituents and creates a political smoke screen at taxpayer expense. He only mentions the big numbers. He even forgot to mention that most of these benefits stop at 65 years of age, that these benefits are not retroactive and that they cannot be implemented until voted in the House—scheduled for fall 2011—what a shame. On the third page under “Myth vs. Reality—Setting the record straight,” he lists three myths, one being the lump-sum payment up to $276,079. He forgot to mention that only four veterans have gotten that amount so far. The average payout is more like $30,000 for severe disability—wow. Who would agree to lose a limb for $30,000? He goes on with three options given to veterans instead of a lumpsum payment. Mr. Strahl, you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig. A second myth, “. . . the government has arbitrarily and unfairly reduced the service pension at the age of 65.” His reality answer and explanation that there is no clawback at age 65 is misleading. The issue is one of the unfairnesses and injustices created when the CPP was enacted in 1965. Veterans have never argued that it was not actuarily correct. Why was Bill C-201, which demanded an elimination of the clawback at 65, passed in the House only to be denied a Royal Recommendation by the Conserva-
Sled dogs could have been saved Editor: Re: Whistler sled dogs outrage: In this day and age of a “disposable” lifestyle it’s upsetting that this practice also translates to animals and dogs. From the earliest of times, dogs have assisted us. There are many jobs that we couldn’t do without the help of dogs, from police dogs, drugsniffing dogs, search-and-rescue dogs and assistance/service dogs, just to name a few of the very valuable tasks we entrust to our canine companions. The recent news of the Whistler sled dogs that were killed in a very violent manner is appalling. Some of the media have reported that these dogs were “put down” or “euthanized.” After reading about this story, I really don’t agree with their terminology. When I take an animal to the local vet to be “put down” I certainly don’t expect a veterinarian to pull out a gun and shoot it. I realize that companion animals are regularly put down in shelters all across the country, but
this still does not justify the gruesome way these sled dogs died. I have owned retired racing greyhounds for more than 20 years. I’m sure, when there was mention of placing these dogs in homes after their racing careers were over, some people would think that a retired race dog would not make a good house pet. The lucky ones reach the adoption societies and are placed in caring homes, but I’m sure there are many greyhounds that do not make it out of the racing industry. Being put down or even shot is also the fate that many racing greyhounds have suffered. Like these sled dogs, racing greyhounds don’t grow up in a home and are regularly housed in crates and cages. Racing greyhounds have never lived in a house, they didn’t even know how to navigate stairs. They are not house-trained, but luckily, dogs are quick learners. I’m sure this also could have been the case for some of these sled dogs (huskies). Just to advise you, greyhounds are the most loving and sweet-natured dogs that I have ever owned and I’m sure, given the chance, these huskies could also been equally as loving. I don’t know how adoptable these sled dogs were or were not— that’s not the point. If you take on the ownership of animals it’s your duty to take care of them, be responsible for them. The operators of this dog-sledding business should have put in some effort to find these dogs new homes. Dogs are not inanimate objects that you can just throw away when you no longer want them. Most of the time the SPCA and assorted breed-
rescue groups take the unwanted animals and dogs that people just don’t want to deal with. Unfortunately, that was not the case for these 100 sled dogs. The cruel and violent ending these healthy dogs were met with was

Just 2 schools beat previous ranking average ranking. Rosedale elementary, for example, had performed well in past years, notching ratings of between 5.8 and 7.6 out of 10 since 2006. But in 2010, the school was handed a rating of just 3.4 out of 10, leaving it ranked 815th out of 875 schools in the province. Just two schools (Sardis and Strathcona) came in ahead of their average ranking over the past five years. Five schools—Strathcona, Robertson Annex, East Chilliwack, Evans and Unsworth—improved on 2009 test scores and another (Sardis) scored the same. However, many more did worse. Two elementary schools were

Other schools ranked in the 800s include Rosedale elementary, McCammon Traditional and Watson elementary. But with average household incomes below $50,000, Bernard and Chilliwack Central include two of the three poorest student bases in the city. McCammon Traditional comes in not far behind.

he Chilliwack Bruins’ best players finally played as such in the final two periods of Saturday’s game at Prospera Centre. Not coincidentally, the Bruins snapped their seven-game losing streak by beating the Kamloops Blazers 4-3. The Blazers jumped ahead early when a seeing-eye point shot beat Bruins netminder Lucas Gore less than two minutes in. The Blazers extended their lead later in the period when another point shot was deftly tipped by Thomas Frazee. But unlike past games when the team crumbled in the face of adversity, Chilliwack’s veteran corps served notice in the second period that they wouldn’t abide an eighth consecutive loss. Ryan Howse pulled Chilliwack to within one when he converted a rebound 43 seconds into the second period. On the power play just three minutes later, he tied the game by wiring the puck past the Blazers’ Jeff Bosch. Kevin Sundher assisted on both those goals, and he played a key
losing skid of the season. A day before, it was the Bruins who were on the losing end of a deciding third-period goal. After trading markers in the first half of the first period, the game remained tied for nearly 40 minutes before Brandon Manning decked the Blazer’s Austin Madaisky into the Chilliwack end

boards. After laying on the ice for several minutes, Madaisky was helped to his feet and left the game. So did Manning, who was given a fiveminute boarding penalty and a game misconduct. He was also handed an automatic suspension, the length of which was to be determined Monday. (According to the Kamloops Daily News, Madaisky was diagnosed with a fractured cervical vertebrae on Saturday, meaning his season is over.) While the Blazers had five minutes to score, they took less than 10 seconds to capitalize on the opportunity, as Jordan DePape shoved a rebound past Lucas Gore for the eventual game winner. Habscheid heads to Sin City With nearly a week until their next game, head coach Marc Habscheid headed south for some fun in the sun at the WHL Board of Governors meeting in Las Vegas Monday. He’ll be back this weekend as the Bruins play three games in three days, including a home-and-home series Friday and Saturday against the Kelowna Rockets.

The Strikers didn’t let up in the second half and, with six minutes remaining, scored their prettiest goal. A neat passing play between Makayla Pfeifer, Elena Schroots. and Haagensen ended with Haley Mainse blasting the ball into the back of the net to cap the win.

Silver Strikers back to winning as they blank Scorpions After a disappointing loss last Sunday to Coquitlam, the Chilliwack U15 Silver Strikers got back to winning this weekend with a 3-0 victory over the Northshore Scorpions in the teams’ third meeting of the year. The locals came out storming right from the opening whistle and early pressure saw Kiana Thiessen played into open space four times, with two shots grazing the post and another two stopped by the opposing keeper. But at the nine-minute mark, Thiessen sent a perfect cross to striker Emma Haagensen, who one-timed the ball into the far corner of the net to give the home squad the lead. Chilliwack added to its lead at the 22-minute mark. Central defender Kelli Whitehead first stopped an attacking forward’s rush at her own 18, then beat a pair of North Shore players
In their second game against David Thompson’s AAA squad, Unity built on their strong finish from the previous game and pushed ahead early en route to a 57-25 win, with player of the game honours going to Rachel Dieleman for her strong defensive effort, and quality offensive performance. Unity rounded out the tournament against the host, A.R. MacNeil. With a victory securing a tournament win for the Flames, Unity used a combination of strong defence and good offensive execution to come out on top 42-26. Player of the game went to Tamara Vandekamp for her hard work on the defensive side of the ball. The Flames currently sit at 8-1 in their Fraser Valley East league. Playoffs take place next week at Vedder middle school.

Courses gives context to land claims issues
ith about 60 per cent of B.C.’s eligible First Nations bands in the treaty process, and the remainder either in litigation or in direct issuespecific talks with various ministries, multiple negotiations are underway across the province to address outstanding social, economical, and geographical injustices. Unfortunately, many people involved in treaty and land claims deliberations are not fully aware of the history and context of these negotiations. UFV is proud to offer the third edition of a short certificate program to help these individuals acquire a n d e x p l o re k e y b a c k ground knowledge quickly and thoroughly. The Indigenous Maps, Films, Rights, and Land Claims certificate will be delivered May 2-30 in Chilliwack, in the heart of traditional Sto:lo First Nation territory. For Aboriginal groups, hereditary title is the source of rights within their traditional territories. Because of this, First Nations view land, sea, and resources as fundamental components of modern treaties, or as central to litigations of a comprehensive or specific kind. This three-course, 12-credit certificate gives participants the opportunity to learn skills
that are of direct relevance to the history, communication, implementation, and critique of rights, title, and land claims. It will use film, oral histories, documentaries, surveys and maps, legal discourse analysis, and field work to explain their importance to the indigenous land and rights process worldwide, but with a specific focus on British Columbia. There is a shortage of people—of both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal descent— who have both the cultural understanding and practical skills required for the successful negotiation and resolution of Indigenous land claims. This certificate should provide students with a credential that they can take back to their communities, organizations, firms, and government ministries, says Dr. Eric Davis, vice-president academic at UFV. Participants will learn in a small group with instructors who have extensive experience in the field, including Hugh Brody, author, filmmaker and Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Studies; Dr. Ken Brealey, UFV Geography department head; Dr. Dave Schaepe, co-director of the Sto:lo Research and Resource Management Centre (RRMC) and adjunct professor at SFU; and Son-
ny McHalsie, co-manager and cultural advisor of the Sto:lo RRMC. The program begins with in-class and in-field learning delivered daily in four focused weeks between May 2 and 30 and
uses the remaining time in the semester (until June 26) for student assignments. ◗ Interested parties are strongly encouraged to apply by April 18 to begin May 2. Please call Ken Bre-
aley at 604-504-7441, local 4336, or email Ken.Brealey@ ufv.ca facilitate the process. Full details, costs, course info, and instructor profiles are available at www.ufv.ca/ landclaims.

EICHSTADT, Charlotte Jan. 9, 1923 – Feb. 2, 2011
Charlotte Eichstadt passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, on Feb. 2, at the Glenwood Care Home. She was born in Potsdam, Germany, during difﬁcult times. During her teens, she had to get up very early to prepare food for workers using only a wood stove. She also worked in a food distribution ﬁrm, doing the bookkeeping and driving a truck with a double clutch. This was quite an unusual accomplishment for a woman at this time. She also took nurses’ training and worked in a children’s hospital. She chose to follow the Lord at the age of 12. She loved going to church and singing in the choir which was directed by her father. She met Werner Eichstadt in the Baptist church in Essen during nurses’ training. They were married June 3, 1950. In 1952, they emigrated to Canada and moved to Chilliwack. They joined the Victoria Avenue Baptist Church and continued to attend this church (now Chilliwack Baptist) until a few years ago. They had very little but Charlotte was an excellent homemaker. In the early years, Revenue Canada audited them because it seemed impossible that they could be living on the small income that the Eichstadts had declared, but she showed them her vegetable garden and explained that soup bones were free. Their son, Ullrich (Oly) was born in 1954. She was a wonderfully kind and loving mother. She continued to serve in the church, teaching Sunday School, playing piano and organ, and visiting the sick. She taught music lessons and was a member of the Chilliwack Music Teachers’Association. She loved ﬂowers and was overwhelmed with the beauty of God’s creation. In 1973, the family moved to Ryder Lake, where she continued to garden and enjoy the beauty of nature. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She leaves behind her devoted husband of 60 years, Werner, her son and daughter-in-law, Oly and Doris, and grandsons, David and Matthew. Charlotte will be remembered for her strong faith in Christ, her kind and gentle nature, her warm and generous heart and unconditional love for her family. The family is very grateful to the staff at Glenwood Care Home for their wonderful care and compassion. A service to honour and celebrate Charlotte’s life will be held at 2:30 on Saturday, Feb. 12, at the Chilliwack Baptist Church on First Avenue. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations can be made to North American Baptist Missions.
