MAGNUSSON - Shirley L. (Stacey). Passed away into the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ on June 5, 1998 at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, following a nine month battle with cancer. She would have been 65 in July. Predeceased by her first husband Don Stacey, parents Ruby and Richard Dent. Shirley leaves behind her loving husband of 19 years, Don Magnusson. She is survived by her two children who adored her, Rhonda Mailey (Dean) and Robert Stacey (Edith) and her brother Richard (Mildred) Dent and family. She also leaves behind the cherished light of her life, her grandson Shane Mailey. Shirley and Don Stacey moved from Regina to North Vancouver in 1966. Two years later, Don passed away from cancer, leaving Shirley to raise their two young children alone. Shirley worked in the health industry with the North Shore Health Dept., the Victorian Order of Nurses and in the office of a general practitioner. In 1979, Shirley married Don Magnusson whose work as a contractor led them to the sanctuary known as Pender Island . Shirley and Don enjoyed 17 years together on this island paradise, made many friends and derived enormous peace from its tranquil setting. Shirley loved to sit on the deck and listen to the birds and inhale the sweet scents of forest and sea. She was also known to have enjoyed the occasional "Pender Bender". Shirley loved people and her endless optimism and ability to help others see the absolute best in themselves will be sorely missed. Perhaps that is her greatest legacy - to help us see the beauty in a less than perfect world, to keep reaching for a dream - to laugh when we feel more like crying.
Mom - our world is quiet today. The leaves are still...the sea is calm...the clouds are motionless. This is the state of my soul. It is a temple of silence that pays homage to a mother I shared - happily - with the hundreds of people she touched - with a smile, with a hug, with an inspiration, with a touch. Rest now, sweet angel. You will live forever in our hearts and memories.
A celebration of Shirley's life on earth was held at the Pender Island Legion on Friday June 12, 1998.
Shirley's family would like to extend their profound appreciation to Dr. Paul Klimo and Dr. Craig Bergstrom for doing absolutely everything they could to extend Shirley's life. Her last months, though never easy, gave her and her family immeasurable moments of joy, tears and laughter. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Shirley's name to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation for Dr. Paul Klimo's chemotherapy clinic, or to the B.C. Cancer Agency.

FROST - John Edwin Richard was born April 22, 1919 on Osborne Road in North Vancouver and passed away on May 29, 1998 in his 80th year after a brief illness. Jack, a truly unique individual, is survived by his loving wife Gertrude whom he knew since childhood and married at St Francis in the Wood, West Vancouver in 1942; their daughters Diane Quinn, Darlene Booth and Vicki Strachan, and their families which include six grandchildren. His brother George, and parents Harriet and John Frost of North Vancouver predeceased Jack.
On a family trip to England, at age 11, Jack met an uncle in the Royal Navy that led him to join the Sea Cadets as soon as they returned to North Vancouver and that meant he would ride his bike from Kings Road down Lonsdale and take the ferry to reach his class in Stanley Park. He then worked on the Empress of Russia as messenger boy and made trips to the Orient at age 16 while waiting for his name to be called to join the R.C.N. Getting impatient, he attempted to join the R.N. in Hong Kong but was told to complete the return journey then come to join after that. When he returned to Vancouver his call to the R.C.N. was waiting for him. He was the youngest member on the Esquimalt base and according to tradition, asked to ring in the New Year in 1936 on the ship's bell. He joined with a class of 60 of whom only about 1 in 5 survived to 1945. On convoy duty he witnessed bombings and sinkings; his ship was caught in a hurricane that took them off course to the South Atlantic with no lifeboats and major damage to the ship's bridge. An icebreaker freed his ship after it was caught in ice on the St. Lawrence when they were the last ship out. His ship took part in the chase for the Bismarck till they had to put in to Iceland for fuel. During the war, he served on many des-troyers, even on Fairmiles; every ship he was on came to grief after he was transferred. His destroyer took Churchill to the historic mid Atlantic meeting with Roosevelt. He served on H.M.C.S. Ontario for about three years following the war and reluctantly retired from the Navy in 1957.
He had built a beautiful home in Victoria with the help of his contractor father (who built many homes in North Vancouver) but both he and his wife's families were on the North Shore so they moved to West Vancouver in 1958. He immediately started working to raise their young family which included at that time Diana and Rose Marie Hall, the daughters of deceased neighbours.
First, he worked in the Post Office during their move to the present building on Georgia Street and then became an inspector of Weights and Measures for the Dept. of Consumer Affairs. He enjoyed travel and covered most areas of B.C. at one time or another as well as travelling by air or sea to check coastal fishing and logging areas not accessible by road. After 21 years in the Navy he proceeded to work 20 years in that department before retiring.
He joined the Masonic Lodge in Halifax during his time there and was a Life Member of both the Chiefs and P.O.'s Assoc. and the R.C. Legion at Lord Nelson Branch 60 where he had worked many years on the Executive including serving as President. He lived and enjoyed life in so many ways - particularly his garden at the home he has lived in for the past 32 years with Gertrude - always ready to welcome his daughters and sons-in-law, David, Michael and Rob, and grandchildren, Zoe, Claire, Blair, Sean, Lauren and Kyla. He was not able to get around easily these past few years and appreciated the home and garden they had created all the more so after deciding to stay instead of choosing an easy existence in a condo. The day before he entered hospital Jack was out weeding and cutting the grass; he took his dogs Bonnie and Cruzer for their run the same day. I know he is happy to have made a quick get-a-way and not prolong our worries but he will be deeply missed.
The Memorial Service will be held at Boal Chapel, First Memorial Funeral Services, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver, V7J 2J1 at 2:00 p.m. on June 3. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Sea Cadets, HMCS Discovery Stanley Park would be appreciated. The family would like to thank the medical and nursing staff at Lions Gate Hospital who worked so hard and heroically for Jack.

Dolly had great pride in being born and raised in North Vancouver. Dolly's love for family life, special friends and all animals made her such a dear and special lady. Dolly was predeceased by her husband, of 50 years, Campbell in 1986. She is survived and lovingly remembered by daughter Dorothy (Dick) Michaud; and son Clary (Sharon) Dickson; grandchildren Kristine, Colin, Kara (Aaron) and Scot; and 2 great-grandboys, Tristan and Zack; niece Joan (Paul) Schwartz, Greg and family; nephew Don (Dawn) Egginton and Laura. Also missing her is special companion, her dog Cammy and her very dear friends, Phil, Wendy and extended family and Lucy. Together they spent many happy hours.
The family would like to request that everyone who knew Dolly take a moment to remember a special time they spent with her. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 6, at 10:00 a.m. at Boal Chapel of First Memorial Funeral Services, 1505 Lillooet Road, North Vancouver. Flowers gratefully declined, donations appreciated to either Margaret Fulton Day Care Centre, of 1044 St. Georges Avenue, V7L 3H6 or S.P.C.A.
Our appreciation and thanks to Dr. Parsons, Kay and Maureen and staff at Margaret Fulton and the staff of West Van Care Centre for the excellent care given to Dolly.
