Vera became a teacher and taught all grades in country schools in Manitoba and Alberta in the 20's and 30's.

LEVESQUE, Ernest Rolland September 2, 1942 - August 14, 2004. Always remembered in love and honour, Ernie will live on in the hearts and minds of his loving wife Jacquie; his sons, Gabriel and Alain; his stepchildren, Anton, Hilary and Ryan; his former wife Nancy Levesque; his sisters, Madeleine Dennis of Sudbury, Ontario and Leone Dedman of North Bay, Ontario, and his dog Jake. Ernie was a man of conviction, principle and boundless energy. He brought wisdom and integrity to his work as an urban planner in a number of BC municipalities, most recently in Port Coquitlam as Director of Development Services. His greatest joys were classical music and the wilderness. For many years, he drove the backwoods, hiked the trails and fished the lakes of BC's interior until he and his wife found a remote lakefront cabin - the place of their dreams. There he built his projects by hand and tied flies. He often rowed alone to cast his line into the evening rise. When night fell he read by lamplight, watched night sky, listened to the call of the loons and his favorite sacred music. He will be hugely missed by us all, except perhaps by the odd trout. A celebration of Ernie's life will be held Wednesday, August 25th at 3:00pm at the Highlands United Church, 3255 Edgemont Blvd, North Vancouver with a reception to follow. The family is composing a book of memoirs of Ernie's life for future generations and would be grateful for any thoughts or photos. Please bring them to the service or email to In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Centre for Integrated Healing, Vancouver BC, or the Cancer Agency of your choice.
