KING, Myrtle May (nee McPhail)
Passed away August 1, 2012 at the age of 101 years, with family at her side at Hardy View/Boundary Hospital, Grand Forks, BC.

She was predeceased by her first husband, Gordon Clarke McPhail and her second husband, Lloyd Robert King.
She lived her formative years in Alberta, where she married Gordon Clarke McPhail in 1930. In 1946, they settled in Greenwood, BC, where Clarke managed the Greenwood Mercantile/Red White Store. In 1953 they moved to Vancouver to purchase their own grocery store, then to Coquitlam to buy another store in 1954, where they remained until Clarke’s death in 1964. In 1966 she married Lloyd King a professional painter and settled in Mission, BC, where she enjoyed retirement to the fullest; travelling to England and Scotland enjoying her garden and rose beds. Her church and community were very important to her, where she joined the Mission Agricultural Fair and won many firsts’ for all her fancy work in crocheting, flowers and crafts. She had many awards to show for her efforts.
Myrtle was also a tireless volunteer, working with the Pleasant View Home in Mission. Her wonderful musical talents brought her to where she was a part of the Old Time Fiddler’s group and played for senior’s groups and churches. She became very involved with the Stroke Club after Lloyd suffered a mild stroke. This became a vital part of her life, even after Lloyd’s death. Myrtle moved to Grand Forks at the age of 96 to be closer to family. Her new home was Boundary Assisted Living, which she loved until moving into Hardy View in the Spring of 2011.
We would like to thank all of the staff in both Boundary Assisted Living and at Hardy View who made Mom’s life comfortable and for the wonderful care you’ve given her.

Having lived a full and exceptional life, Terry passed away on Saturday, January 14, peacefully at home with family by her side, after a long fight with cancer. Born October 28, 1942, Ann Maria O’Hanlon, adopted by Elsie and Michael Moore, Terry lived in England with her brother John Moore until age 8. After immigrating to Canada, she grew up in Alberta and moved to Kelowna as an adult. Family was most important to Terry. She traced her roots back to her birth mother, discovering a clutch of siblings who welcomed her with open arms. She nurtured her family tree, supporting her children and cheering her grandchildren in their pursuits. Whether on the soccer pitch, at the rink, or grandparents’ day, Terry was there. She leaves behind the family she loved, Douglas Black, her husband of 28 years, son Grant Johnson, daughter Sharlene (John) Sherring, Gordon (Sarah) Black, Ian (Michelle) Black, daughter-in-law Holly, grandchildren Joel and Dallace, Andrew and Oliver, Cason, Harris and Hadley, Cameron and Darcy. She leaves her brother John Moore of Victoria and siblings in England and New Zealand Bern, Dee, Lynne, John and Angie, and her many friends near and far. Terry loved to travel and one of her happiest experiences was as a volunteer at the Vancouver Olympics. She also loved her home where her quiet compassion and patience marked her lifelong passion for horses and breeding. Terry enjoyed each aspect of breeding, and was particularly proud of her success as breeder of a BC Derby Winner. Terry worked hard, lived life on her own terms, and was as quick with her smile as she was “calling a spade a spade”. Terry will be missed in our days, but her spirit will remain with us. Thank you to Drs. Ellard, Fyles, McLeod and Wickstrom, and the Kelowna General Hospital for their compassion and care. On Friday, February 3, 2012 a private family service will be held, followed by a reception at the Hotel Eldorado 2-5pm, for friends and family to celebrate her life. For grandson Oliver, the punch will be really good. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Canadian Cancer Society for Ovarian Cancer Research
