Gerard “Jerry” Joseph Plante
December 19, 1952 - December 30, 2008

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved son, brother, father, father in-law, papa, husband and friend.

Jerry passed into eternity among family and friends on December 30, 2008 at the Kamloops Hospice House.

Jerry is survived by his wife Joanne; sons Jeremy (Sherry), Wade (Gaylene), and Brodie; stepsons Nathan (Jennifer) and Beau (Christy); and 15 grandchildren, Patrick, Zachary, Abigail, Roman, Genesis, Jillian, Sara, Hunter, Kayla, Deven, Tai, Isabella, Riley, Liam and Tristan.

He will be deeply missed by his brothers, Hubert (Gloria), and Denis (Sheila) and sisters Clemence Tucker, Toni (Ted) Smith and Lucille Badgley, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents Hercule & Therese Plante, brother Remie Plante, brother in-law Floyd Tucker and grandson Keagan Plante.

Jerry was born in The Pas, Manitoba on December 19, 1952 – the youngest of seven children.

He always loved the outdoors and had the “heart of a cowboy.” He spent many happy hours at his sister’s farm and hunting with his friend Greg at Moose Lake.

Jerry and his family moved to Kamloops in 1978. He spent 32 years working for the CNR before retiring due to illness in 2007.

Jerry spent many years cowboying at the Corbould Ranch, fulfilling his boyhood dreams. He was happiest riding his horses in the back country, skiing at Tod Mountain, and hunting with his buddy Ross. He called himself “the original bush ape.”

Jerry always kept his sense of humour, had great faith in God and always had a positive attitude. He was a great example of patience and faith to us all. He loved his God and his family and friends – always there with encouragement and a listening ear.

A special thanks to our church family, staff at the Cancer Clinic, the “angels” at Hospice House, Harry and Sharon Funk, Vic and Caroline Anderson and all our prayer warriors.

A Celebration of Jerry’s life will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, January 17, 2009 at the Full Gospel Tabernacle, 1550 Tranquille Road, Kamloops BC, with Pastor Darrell Hellquist officiating.

Donations in Jerry’s memory to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House, 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops BC V2E 2S9. Flowers gratefully declined.

Dorothy May Shaw

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dorothy May Shaw of Kamloops on Jan18, 2009 in the Royal Inland Hospital at the age of 91 years. Born on Oct 18, 1917 in Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital.

She was predeceased by husband John (Jack) Shaw in 2000.

Dorothy’s parents homesteaded in the Heffley Creek area in the early 1900’s which is where she grew up. She owned a restaurant in Kamloops during the war and married Jack in 1942. They lived in Brocklehurst and Noble Creek before moving to Westsyde in 1952 where she lived until her passing.

Mom was very active with the Church of Cleopas since its inception, Lay Assistant, Bible Study Group, Church Women’s Group, Thrift Shop, Eastern Star, Westsyde Women’s Institute and Baby Clinics to name a few of her groups. She was an avid gardener and profusive knitter all her life. Mom was small in frame but mighty in spirit and the glue that held together the family that was so important to her, past, present, and future with her “special love.”

A Service of Remembrance will be held on Friday, Jan 23, 2009, 2:00pm at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 4th & Nicola St. Kamloops, BC.

The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at Emergency in Royal Inland Hospital for their wonderful care & compassion. Special thanks to Bruce Chalmers & Verna Albright.
