Dorothy Patricia Correy (nee McGee)
July 10, 1926 - September 14, 2010

On Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at Royal Island Hospital, Kamloops B.C.

In her 85th year Dorothy passed away peacefully with family at her bedside, after a brief illness fought with courage and dignity.

Dorothy leaves her husband Frank, her sisters Peggy Keenan and Lois Van Dyk and brother in-law Jack Correy.

Dorothy will be greatly missed by her daughters Linda, Mary Beth and Brenda, her sons Paul and Peter and her grandchildren Shane, Trent, Ryan, Patricia and Meghan. She is also the proud mother in-law of Donna, Jim, Brenda, and Rod. Her loyal golden retriever ‘Chester’ is also in mourning.

Born in Florida in 1926 and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. In 1952 after Queens University, Dorothy and Frank moved to Grimsby, Ontario where they raised their five children including their canine family Fritzy and Dozzy for whom she made breakfast every morning.

An outstanding cook and hostess, Dorothy was known for her fabulous dinners and baked goods, which were of course shared with everyone. Dorothy will be remembered for her generosity of spirit, her unfailing energy, her courage and her fierce love of her children.

Since moving to a waterfront property on Little Shuswap Lake near Chase, BC five years ago, Dorothy enjoyed the abundance of wildlife and all the lake summer activities. In keeping with her love of sunshine, winters were spent in Cave Creek, AZ for the past 30 years.

Dorothy will be long remembered and sorely missed. She was and is a fine, gentle, gracious and terribly brave woman.

In lieu of flowers and in keeping with Dorothy’s view of life, please perform an act of ‘Random Kindness’, which will be sure to bring a smile to Dorothy’s face or a donation to the Salvation Army.

June 11, 1924 - September 10, 2010

Jack is survived by sons John and Graham and daughter Lindsay. He was predeceased by sister Marjorie and brothers Ed, Bob, Bill and Gil.

Jack was born in Lanigan, Saskatchewan. At eight years of age he moved with his family to BC. Underage at 16, he enlisted in the Rocky Mountain Rangers and was stationed in Britain. He transferred to the 1st Canadian Scottish Regiment prior to entering combat on D-Day, June 6, 1944, at Juno Beach. Wounded in Holland in October 1944, Jack returned to England to recover until the end of the war. Upon returning to BC, Jack attended business college. Eventually the lure of the outdoors found him working as a coastal logger. By 1950 he had become involved in the heavy construction industry performing logistic and supervisory roles, eventually acquiring ownership of Atlas Construction Company Ltd. After selling the construction company, Jack renovated houses for resale and travelled extensively over the decades before settling in Merritt for the remainder of his life.

The family thanks Bill and Dorothy Coburn for being such good neighbours to Jack, and the staff at both Nicola Meadows and Coquihalla Gillis House for their patience and care. Special thanks to Harold and Marlene Giesbrecht for their ongoing support, compassion and kind attention to Jack in his last years.

Reg Palmer passed away on Saturday, September 25th after several years of declining health.

He is survived by his wife Colene, son Steven (Karen), daughter Cheryl (Noel) Christian, granddaughter Randelle Palmer, and grandsons Evan and Aaron Christian. Reg will also be remembered by his sister Irene (E.B.) Smith, sisters in-law Joan and Florence Palmer, eight nephews and one niece. He was predeceased by his parents and his brothers Harold and Verne.

A long-time resident of Westsyde, Reg came here with his family from Vancouver in 1953. “There were only seven houses in Westsyde then,” he was fond of saying. Reg worked as a carpenter and also joined with his brother Harold in R. & H. Cement Products. That company provided concrete septic tanks to the expanding areas around Kamloops. Eventually, Reg put his woodworking skills to use when he established R.L. Palmer Manufacturing Ltd, which specialized in wooden products for education. The company also made custom cabinetry for schools and libraries.

Reg was an enthusiastic outdoorsman and especially enjoyed flying R.C. model planes. In later years he became an ardent gardener, specializing in dahlias and vegetables.

A “Remembering Service” will take place at 2:00 pm on Monday, October 4, 2010 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Drive.

Friends wishing to make a memorial donation are encouraged to support Habitat for Humanity 28-1425 Cariboo Place Kamloops BC V2C 5Z3 or the Kamloops Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Cr., South, Kamloops BC V2E 2S9 .
