WAGNER, Kathe (nee Dietrich) - Monday, 30 Jul 2007
Kathe (nee Dietrich) Passed away peacefully in her home in Whonnock, on July 30, 2007. Kathe was born on March 20, 1926 in Tapiau, East Prussia, Germany, which is today Gwardeisk in Russia. She attended boarding school (Senior Secondary School) in Lubeck until late 1944, when the Russian front was approaching. 18 years old, she took her mother and younger brother on a 1000 km march from Pillau to Warnemuende in winter, with hardly anything else but the clothes they were wearing. Due to her common sense, they made it to safety. She married Dr. Gerhard Wagner, and both of them immigrated to Canada. In Coquitlam, BC she became famous as a master weaver. Garments and blankets were outstanding in color and design. The couple moved to Whonnock in Maple Ridge, BC, here again they were soon well known for their artistic and agricultural products, for musical evenings and for wonderful conversation with uncountable friends, from down to earth farm folks to intellectuals and well known business people in Vancouver. Visitors came non-stop to Kathe’s place. She was loyal, she was generous, she had a sensitive nature, but above all she was sincere.
Predeceased by her husband Gerhard, Kathe is survived and sadly missed by her brother Johannes Dietrich in Germany, and by her numerous friends and neighbors.
A celebration of Kathe’s life will be held at a later date.

John is survived by Viola, wife of 64 years, and four daughters Karen (Ian), Janet (Jim), Dawne, Laura (Steve); and 8 grand­children; 11 great-grandchildren, sisters Marg McCaffrey and Edie Perry. He lived in Mission for over 65 years, was proprietor of Mission Meats, and a member of the Mission Legion for 60 years. John was a good family man. Special memories include Dad twirling around the dance floor with mom, the piggy back rides in the rain, Bugs Bunny bedtime stories, corn roasts and learning to swim at Everglades, bonfires at Halloween, fishing ­lessons for daughters and grandchildren, sleigh rides on Fell's hill and ­master carving of the turkey at family dinners. Dad shared his time with us, Sunday visits to Janet and Jim's farm, Saturday morning coffee and muffins at Laura and Steve's, holidays at Missezulla Lake with Karen and Ian, Dawne's Sunday dinners at home. Dad was a voracious reader and enjoyed discussions on any subject. At 91 years he was still taking a daily walk. His motto was "never stop trying". Everything we ever learned of any value, we learned from our Dad and Mom. Dad's favorite saying from the porch of our family home was "this is the most beautiful place in the world. "
You have gone with the angels Dad, and we will miss you so.
Special thanks to Dr, Mitchinson, the staff at Mission Memorial Hospital and especially the loving care of his home support workers.

WILLEBOORDSE, David George - Saturday, 30 Sep 2006
David George
Aug. 13, 1981 - Sept. 30, 2006
On August 13, 1981 a third son was born to Faye and George Willeboordse. David George Willeboordse arrived – a huge gift to his family – he weighed 9lbs – 13ozs. On September 30, 2006 David's life was cut short by a tragic accident in Langley, B.C.
David was born in Williams Lake, B.C. Shortly thereafter his family moved to Salmon Arm and lived in various places in B.C. Including Merritt, Surrey and Abbotsford as he was growing up. The last 13 years he was a resident of Abbotsford, B.C. In the last two months of his life, David began a new job in Ft. St. John, B. C and was staying there with his family while in the process of moving and beginning a new life there with his wife.
In the fall of 2002 David met a beautiful young lady, Karen Gurney and she fast became the love of his life. They were married on May 14, 2005. David and Karen were excited about a new beginning in Ft. St. John living closer to David's family.
Even at an early age "happiness" and "comedian" were words that defined David. Laughter followed him wherever he went. He liked nothing better than a good joke or a playful tease to those he knew and loved. Everyone loved David. He was a loving husband, son and brother, a great friend and a 'favorite' uncle. Growing through his teenage and young adult life, David developed Godly character which was displayed in his loyalty and love to those around him. He is known for his caring ways, his soft shoulder and his incredible ability to bring encouragement to those who needed it. David loved God with his whole life. He appreciated all that God made and was especially enthralled with the beauty of God's creation.
David's passion was people and his heart went out to those who were less fortunate than himself. One of the many highlights of his life was the opportunity to meet the King of Ghana, Africa, and then participate in a missions trip to his country. He would have loved to share in many more 'mission' experiences.
David is survived by his wife, Karen; his parents, Faye and George Willeboordse of Fort. St. John; his brothers, Kevin (Jodie) of Fort. St. John and Colin of Abbotsford; his grandparents, Sid and Joanne Miedema of Fort. St. John and Leunis and Julie Willeboordse of Abbotsford; his nephew and niece, Tyson and Kaylie. David will be greatly missed by numerous aunts, uncles cousins and friends.
Memorial service for David will be held at Heritage Alliance Church, 3440 Mt. Lehman Road, Abbotsford on Friday, October 6, 2006 at 2:00 p. m.
