She left to spread her wings at the tender age of 14 and a few years later she met and married her first husband George Cash and had two children Penny and Bobbie. Seven years after the death of her infant son Bobbie, daughter Robin was born.

Dolores moved around a lot trying to find a place to settle and call home. She loved to tend bar in her early years and working at various jobs that always involved helping people in Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver, and Blaine, Washington, eventually settling in Kamloops in 1992. There she met and married Fred Langton in 2002. In her later years she went back to school and received her Care Aide Certification where she found her greatest passion working with the seniors at Cariboo Manor. She was very proud of her job there.

Dolores was a very kind caring person and was loved by all who knew her. She never turned her back on anyone in need, always being there to help in anyway she could. She was strong willed and very talented. She loved finding a new craft to make and then sharing it with everyone. Mostly she was a mother and a friend to all that knew her, she will be deeply missed.

In memory of Dolores, please send donations to the Cariboo Manor Society, 831 Serle Rd, Kamloops, BC V2B 6L7 in lieu of flowers.

George H. Laxton
March 20, 1934 - February 14, 2008

George H. Laxton of Kamloops passed way on February 14, 2008 at 73 years of age. Survived by his loving children Dawn ( Reid) of Burnaby, Sean (Dallas), Doug (Kari) and Corey all of Kamloops. He also leaves to cherish his memory, seven grandchildren, two great grandchildren, brothers Ken Laxton and Clem Edwards as well as many nieces and nephews.

George was predeceased by his wife Lynn in 2007, sister Doreen mother Beatrice and father Tom.

George was born in Mission City March 20, 1934. Later in life, George was the zamboni man in the local Arenas for 40 years. He took huge pride in the fact that Kamloops had the best hockey ice, some said in all of Canada. The Memorial Arena was his second home until Riverside Coliseum opened and with continued pride, he moved into the new barn to continue the Kamloops hockey legacy. Past Blazers hockey coaches will still say “George made great ice, even in poor conditions”.

After his retirement from the City of Kamloops in 1997, George was asked to help the Ice Box to open it’s doors. He was apparently one of the only men in Canada who knew how to make a sheet of ice on sand. George continued to work there until his health wouldn’t allow him to work anymore. George also loved hunting and fishing with his sons and grandchildren. He was a big part of curling, figure skating, K.I.B.I.H.T. and hockey for a long time and will be very missed.

Special thanks to the nursing staff at 6th south at Royal Inland Hospital, Dr. Stewart and Dr. Leung.

In Memory of George a donation may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 685 Victoria Street Kamloops, BC V2C 2B3.
