Dosvidanya - Goodbye
When the strings break and I no more make music,
Only a jingle, only a jangling rhyme.
Then you will know that much of me is ended
Although I linger, overlooked by time.
So I must say, while I still speak in silver,
While words and music mate in singing wings,
You have my love... you have my love forever
You have my songs... you do not need my strings. - Joe Wallace
The family will hold a private Memorial.
The family encourages, in lieu of flowers, a donation to the Lynn Valley Care Center (Activity Fund), as they were very much part of Mom and Anne's extended family.
Thank you Mom for the songs you and Dad gave us and encouragement to make our own music.

BURNETT - Christina Marion. (Rev.)
The family of the Rev. Christina Marion Burnett, United Church of Canada (retired), is profoundly sad to announce her unexpected passing on Tuesday, September 17, 2002, at her home on Bowen Island.
Chris was born in Kimberley, B.C. to pioneer parents, Alfred and Morag Watson.
She was an accomplished Highland dancer, pianist, vocalist and conductor, as well as an outstanding scholar.
Chris attended the Banff School of Fine Arts, obtained her teaching credential from The Vancouver Normal School, her Bachelor of Religious Studies from UBC and her Masters of Divinity from the Vancouver School of Theology.
She served as Minister at Squamish United Church for ten years, and was much loved by the many other congregations she touched throughout the lower mainland.
Chris will be enormously missed by her husband, Geoff, and by her children, Kellie, Ellen, and Tom, and their spouses.
Her family cherishes the wonderful memories she created in a home filled with love, art, nature, music, and friends.
Chris will also be sorely missed by the countless people who stayed in her home over the years and who knew her as their second Mom.
In retirement, Chris devoted herself to boundlessly loving, supporting and nurturing her family and her six grandchildren.
Her loving and gentle presence is an immeasurable loss to Jennifer, Beverly and Kirsten Rapley; Anna and Molly MacIntosh, and Rylan Burnett.
Chris was predeceased by her loving parents, and by her brothers Ian, Donald and Mac Watson.
Her sisters Florence Hudson, Iona (Noni) Brown, and Sheila Watson, and her brother, Malcolm, have lost their mentor and best friend.
She is also survived by many nieces and nephews, whom she dearly loved and who loved her in return.
The family wishes to thank Chris's medical team, particularly Dr. Les Janz, for their kind and compassionate care, and Dr. Lorne Bueckert for his amazing help and support at the end.
We are also extremely grateful to the many wonderful friends who have supported us with hugs, food, flowers, and so many kindnesses in these sad days.
For those who wish, contributions to a Chris Burnett Memorial Scholarship (in care of Ellen Burnett #101 2545 Lonsdale Ave.
North Vancouver B.C. V7N 3H7) would be deeply appreciated.
For those who prefer, please remember the Arthritis Society, 604-714-5575, specifying your donation for research.
Many people feel that they, as an individual, are powerless to make a difference.
The life of Christina Marion Burnett is a beautiful legacy to the power of one.
