Predeceased by husband Douglas Inskip, daughter Linda, and brothers George, Art and Doug Bowers.

Cora was born a ranch girl in Cherry Creek and never left the ranching way of life. She married dad in 1943 and moved to the ranch north of Westsyde where she remained until her move to the Hamlets in 2009. Gardening was her favourite pastime for years and her flowers are still blooming today. In later years the most important thing to her was her boys - Cody, Dustin and Ty. She would do anything for them and was proud of every accomplishment they achieved. Although mom never really adjusted totally to living at the Hamlets, she always had good things to say about the staff. Special thanks to the staff of 5 North at the Royal Inland Hospital and Dr. Bruce Newmarch for their caring during a difficult time.

No formal service by request.

Hubert William “Bill” Gardiner
August 4, 1929 - February 21, 2008

Hubert William “Bill” Gardiner passed away on February 21, 2008 after a short stay at Overlander Extended Care in Kamloops.

Shortly after marrying Lily (nee Nelson), they settled in North Kamloops where they raised two children. A very knowledgeable mechanic, Bill worked for various companies in the Kamloops area, finally retiring from forestry, another love of his. An avid reader, he thrived to gain knowledge or figure out problems. To spend time at the “Homestead” at Robins Range was both peaceful and memory filled.

Gary Alfred Butterfield
November 26, 1940 - June 6, 2011

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gary Butterfield on Monday, June 6, 2011.

He was first and foremost a spiritual man, dedicated to his religious beliefs and lived and followed that life true to the end. He loved life and people, had a good sense of humor and was a great storyteller. He was always up for a game of baseball, a word game, or doing a crossword. Most of his working career was as a Service Advisor/ Manager, within the G.M. dealerships throughout BC.

He was born November 26, 1940 at the home of his grandmother in Vancouver, BC. On September 30th, 1960 Gary married Beverly Boyd and together they raised four children. They started life together in Vancouver and moved to various towns of BC, finally settling in Kamloops. They enjoyed 50 years together sharing experiences and the joys of life as each other’s best friends. They were grandparents to five grandchildren and Gary was lovingly known as “Papa.”

Left with fond memories is the love of his life, Beverly, and his four children Valerie (Clayton), Shannon (Chris), Wade (Amber), Loretta (Ian). He is also survived by his five grandchildren Cole, Lauren, Quinton, Madison and Skye. Gary will also be remembered by his brother Glenn.

Gary was known as a teacher and a mentor always ready to provide helpful advice. Aging was difficult for Gary as he was always young at heart and had a love of life. His loss will leave a void in many lives.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on June 11, 2011, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1985 Curlew Road.

The family wishes to thank the emergency response and the hospital staff for their tireless efforts and kindness shown. We would also like to thank family and friends for their love, support and generosity.

Regina Corilla Tommasini

On Thursday, June 30, 2011, Regina Tommasini passed away peacefully with her family by her side at Pine Grove Lodge, Kamloops.

She also leaves behind her beloved Pine Grove family where she has resided for the past four years.

Regina was predeceased by the love of her life, Antonio (2009) and two of her children, Vito and Also (1954).

Regina was born in Vedelago, Italy in 1920. She married Antonio on Boxing Day 1942 and immigrated to Canada in 1951, two years after her husband. Regina and her four oldest children travelled by boat to Halifax before traveling across Canada on a train where she rejoined Antonio in Kamloops.

Nonna, as she was called by her family, was a stay at home mom who loved to work in her yard. She had a beautiful garden that allowed her to bring fresh flowers to her two sons gravesite every Sunday. She also enjoyed working in her vegetable garden that provided food for all of her friends and family. Nonna loved to bring people together and often made large pasta dinners with all of her children and grandchildren. Those were always our families most memorable moments as Nonna taught us the importance of family.

Regina was always involved in her Church (OLPH) as a CWL and Little Flower Member. She was very passionate about attending church up until her final days. She always had a line of parishioners that greeted her with hugs and kisses at mass. You people really made her day.

Our family would like to thank the staff at Pine Grove Lodge for all they have done for our mother over the past four years. We would also like to thank Dr. Howie for his warmth and compassionate care over the years.

Prayers will be recited at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 635 Tranquille Road.

Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 11:00 am on Thursday, July 7, 2011 in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, with Reverend Father Peter Nguyen, Celebrant. Following the service, Regina will be laid to rest at Hillside Cemetery.
