Jogindar Khaira
November 18, 1918 - September 21, 2009

Colonel Jogindar Singh Khaira (Ret.) of Kamloops passed away peacefully on September 21, 2009 at the age of 90 years.

He will be missed by his loving wife Satindar Kaur Khaira; daughter Picku (Naunihal) Multani; grandchildren Gurnek, Noor and Angad; sisters Gurbachan Khaira and Jaswant Kaur Virk; many cousins, nephews, nieces, in-laws, friends and extended family in Canada and India. Predeceased by son Ravi Khaira and his parents.

Jogindar was born in Punjab, India on November 18, 1918. He attended university at Shantiniketan with Rabindra Nath Tagore and met his teacher and mentor Gurdial Mallik, who changed his life. Through Jogindar, his family and friends had the privilege to meet Mallikji and other spiritually advanced souls. Jogindar served in the Indian Army for 32 years and retired as a Colonel. Jogi (as his teacher called him) was an exceptional husband to Satindar for 61 years, a father, friend and teacher to his daughter Picku and son Ravi. His three grandchildren were the light of his life. His extended family and friends remember him as a mentor and the one they could go to for advice at any time.

Goodbye Papaji – You were an officer and a gentleman to the end.

Your love and guidance will be with us forever.

Special thanks to Dr. Sommerville, the staff at High Country (especially Stephanie), and the staff at Kamloops Hospice, who made his last years comfortable and peaceful.

The Funeral Service will begin at 10:30 am on Saturday, September 26, 2009 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Drive.

November 8, 1960 – September 26, 2009

On Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 12:01 pm our Cathy, with great dignity, very peacefully passed into the presence of Jesus Christ, His angels and the heavenly host, surrounded by all of our family holding her, loving her and cheering her on.

Cathy is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 28 years her Michael; oldest son Justin-Michael Edwin; daughter in-law Alison; youngest son Matthias Christian; and her baby girl Breanna Victoria.

Cathy is also survived by her Grandma Emma Masters; Mom and Dad, Willis and Evelyn McBride; brothers Brian McBride, Steve McBride and Doug McBride; sisters Linda McBride and Charlene (Spaz) McBride; parents in-law Murray and Joan Ford, Roger and Shelly Ford, and Robert and Roberta Ford; and many, many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

Cathy was predeceased by her brothers in-law Chris Prichard and Clarke Bradley, and sister in-law Corrine McBride.

Cathy was born in Matheson, Ontario on November 8, 1960, the youngest child to Willis and Evelyn McBride. She lived in Asbestos, Quebec until 1970 and moved to Logan Lake where she and Mike met in 1979. They married in 1981 and have been each others best friends and partners in crime ever since. They were the A Team, always up to the antics of their daredevil sons, Jus and Matty, and their Princess Bee.

Cath was an extremely kind, generous and compassionate person. She loved her family, the moon, Colombo, physical comedy, Broadway shows, drag racing, Nascar, the Olympics, dance, Wimbledon, the Scott Tournament of Hearts, Queen, Michael Jackson and the B.C. Lions. Cath and Mike attended many of the Leos games and were faithfully in front of the TV whenever B.C. played, including while she was in hospice care. She had an amazing sense of humour and a completely infectious laugh but she was intensely private and proud. She revealed her true self only to us, her family, who were so privileged to have her and have truly known her. Thank you for gifting us with Cath, Lord.

We will love you and miss you forever Gibbler. More.

As a family we would like to thank our doctors in Logan Lake, Kamloops and Vancouver – Dr. Schudamoore, Dr. Proctor, Dr. Coppin, Dr. Pache, Dr. Sheik, Dr. Newmarch, Dr. Just and Dr. Rawson; our local paramedics; the Logan Lake Medical Clinic Jenny and “Wee” Bonnie. We are especially grateful to Dona, our wonderful, compassionate local pharmacist in Logan Lake. Many times she has gone beyond the call to help us out. We would also like to thank the doctors, nurses and volunteers who grace the R.I.H. Cancer Clinic with their presence and compassion. Lastly words cannot express how eternally grateful we are to the kind, loving people who tirelessly, and always with a smile under very difficult circumstances, choose to volunteer or work at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House. What would we have done without you? Thank you for the love, the respect and the compassion you have shown each of us and, most importantly, our beloved little Cath. She adored each of you. Now we know where all the angels on earth work, they work in hospices. God bless all of you.

Flowers are respectfully declined. Please send a donation instead to the Royal Inland Hospital Cancer Clinic or the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House in honour of our Cathy, to continue the work and bless others in their most trying times.

We invite our friends to celebrate Cath’s life with us on Friday, October 2, 2009 at 1:00 PM in the church where Mike and Cathy were married, the Logan Lake Community Church. Reverend Harry Holmquist will do us the honour and officiate. Thank you Pastor Harry.

Your love & laughter will carry on!
