Eileen Stevenson
January 1, 1930 - May 23, 2009

On May 23, 2009 our mother Eileen Stevenson (nee Stinson) was called to heaven after a long struggle with her failing health. She fought so bravely right to the end..

Eileen was raised in Burnaby BC but spent a lot of time visiting Knutsford where she would ride horses. She moved to Kamloops later on in life with her husband Ray, who passed away in 1991. She spent her remaining years enjoying her family.

Her passion for life, incredible strength and will, courage and kind heart,

will be missed by all who knew her.

Eileen is survived by her sister Genevieve Harverson of Vancouver, son John Stinson of Edmonton Alberta, son Ken Stevenson, daughter Cindy Stevenson, daughter Sandra White (Bud) and grandsons Nathan and Dhilon Ergang all from Kamloops.

A big thank you to the staff at the Hamlets, where mother resided until her passing. Special thanks to those who took the time to say their goodbyes.

A Private Family Service is planned.

Elin Linnea McMillan
June 9, 1928 - June 17, 2009

Elin Lennea McMillan passed away peacefully on June 17th, 2009 at the age of 81.

Her love and encouragement will forever be remembered by those whose lives she so enriched: her children Michael (Helen), Merle (Kelly), Kevin (Diana), and Casey (Morag); her daughter-in-law Nancy; her grandchildren Andrea, Sarra, Brianne, Jonathan, Regan, Ashley, and Ryan; her sisters Vana Boyd and Greta Lupick; and her sister-in-law Elsa. She was predeceased by her husband John, her brother Charlie, her sister-in-law Inez and her son D’Arcy.

Elin was born in Stewart, BC on June 9, 1928. In Stewart, she completed high school by correspondence, the town’s only graduate in her year.

She graduated from Provincial Normal School in 1947 and earned an Elementary School Permanent Certificate First Class in October, 1951.

In Massett, Stewart, Vanderhoof, Lake Cowichan, and Prince George, she frequently taught in one-room schoolhouses with children of several different grades. She loved her job and excelled at it, becoming a Teacher Consultant in Vanderhoof and Prince George.

When she met John McMillan in Prince George, she soon fell for his Irish charm. They married in 1958 and later moved to Fort St. John, and then to Kamloops. After the birth of Michael and then Merle, Elin left teaching to devote her life to educating, encouraging and advocating for her children. This was a loss for the school system but a priceless gift to her family. She was so proud of the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren.

She loved volunteering at the Overlander Hospital, going to the symphony and walking daily with her good friend Anne Uren.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, June 20th, 2009 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church at 6th and Douglas.

If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian church or to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home.

Raymond David Gray
July 2, 1923 - June 25, 2009

With sadness and yet great peace, the family of Raymond David Gray would like to announce his passing, on June 25th, a week shy of his 86th birthday.

Ray went to meet his beloved wife Maureen, who had predeceased him almost 5 years before. He slipped away peacefully with both his children at his side.

Ray is survived by his son Dave (wife Luke) and daughter Marilyn, his sisters Eleanor, Maggie and Mary, together with 13 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. Besides his wife, he went on to meet other family members who had gone ahead of him, including his brothers Tom and Jack, sisters Ethel and Irene; brothers-in-law Doug, Wally, Sam and Vic; sister-in-law Winnie; and son-in-law Hank Lange.

Ray was born on July 2, 1923 in Glasgow, Scotland. At the ender age of 3, he journeyed with his family by ship to the original Mayook Settlement near Cranbrook, BC. He later returned to Europe as a Member of the Canadian Armed Forces, stationed in Digby during World War II. He met the love of his life at a dance in England and brought her back as a war bride. To support his new family, Ray chose to return to work on the railroad, and eventually relocated them to Kamloops, BC, where he worked as a train engineer until his retirement at 62 years of age. He lived out the rest of his days in Kamloops, gardening and fishing for as long as he could.

We will miss his humour and his great love for all of his family.

A celebration of Ray's life will be held on Tuesday, June 30th at 2:00 p.m. at Kamloops Funeral Home.

Donations can be made in lieu of flowers to the BC Heart and Stroke Foundation or the SPCA.
