Matteotti, Sara Michelle
Service: Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 at 1:00 – 4:00 pm
Location: Laurel Packinghouse
It is with great sadness and also great peace we share with you the passing of our daughter, our sister, our niece, our cousin, our granddaughter, our beautiful friend Sara Michelle Matteotti.
Sara passed away on Monday, May 7th, 2012 at the age of 29 years at the end of her long and courageous battle with Life. She now flies free.
Sara was one-of-a-kind, a brilliant gem, an extraordinary soul whose effervescence, compassion, irreverent sense of humour and spirit touched many lives, young and old.
Sara was passionately connected to her family, forevermore bonded to sister Chelsey who was her jewel, her passion, her love, her best bud. A fiercely protective, proudly loyal, and always true daughter and sister.
A deeply gifted artist and musician, dancer and singer, wonderful and creative cook, lover of gardens and all things natural, she loved all animals, particularly our cat, Misty. She loved and missed her bird, Cola, and cat, Bojaz. Sara had an affinity and a soft spot for older folks, kids, the underdog.
She is survived by her mother, Marlene Matkin, father, John (Jack) Matteotti, sister Chelsey Nicole Matteotti, grandmother, Louise Bullis, and many, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is predeceased by her grandmother, Eileen Matteotti, grandfather, Henry Matteotti, and grandfather, Bert Baker Matkin.
In lieu of flowers, etc., Sara would want you to plant a flower, make a wish, help a child, do a random act of kindness. Sara would also prefer you put your energy into: working towards world peace, eradicating world hunger, erasing racism and the subjugation of women worldwide, stopping the abuse of children and cruelty to animals… and abolishing tight-fitting clothing everywhere.
The Gathering for Sara will be held on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 at 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the Laurel Packinghouse on Ellis Street in Kelowna, B.C. All are welcome to attend.

McVey, Margaret Anne (nee Mountford)
December 3, 1948 — May 8, 2012
Service: Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 10:00 am
Location: Springfield Funeral Home
Anne was born on December 3, 1948 in Penticton, BC to Gordon and Mildred Mountford. She spent her early years living at the resort that Gordon had developed at Paradise Lake, located near Elkhart Lodge on the Coquihalla Highway. In her teenage years, Anne went to live in Edmonton with her Aunt Emily and Uncle Laurie and finished her high school. She married and had two sons, Scott and James and spent time living in various communities associated with the mining industry. Anne then remarried and had her youngest son, Steven and spent time living in Yellowknife.Anne raised Steven on her own with the help of dear friends. In 2002, her life adventure took another turn when she met her third husband, Paul. At that time she was working in a chiropractic office in Westbank. It was soon after that meeting that Anne, Paul and Steven moved into a common home to start their new adventure together. Around 2005, Anne found a new job with a local manufacturer of water park play equipment. It was also at this time that she and her family purchased and moved to a home in Peachland with a wonderful view of the Okanagan Lake that provided so much calm to her soul. Things changed again for Anne when she found a new job as the Business Administrator to the Kelowna Waldorf School. It was at this place of learning that she found a job that she truly loved. She had many new responsibilities and roles, but revelled in the new experiences and working with the “little ones” as well as working with their parents, the teachers and the staff at the school. Anne found that the philosophies and teachings of the school resonated with the spiritual learnings that she had found on her life’s journey. Anne left us suddenly and without warning in the early morning hours of May 8, 2012. She is survived by her sons Scott (Tanya), James, and Steven (Karalee), her brother Jim (Pearl), sister Mary (Gilles), her husband Paul, her step sons Aaron (Chalan) and Josh (Katie), two grandchildren, Lilly and Max and numerous nephews and nieces. Anne loved to cook and there were many fine feasts shared at the Peachland home. She also had strong artistic sense and loved to paint, decorate and sew. Anne touched the lives of so many over the years, and the world is a better place for her having been here. She was taken away from us way too soon. She will be missed by many and there will be a huge hole left in her absence. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 10:00 am at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to The Women’s Shelter,
