William John Inglis
April 11, 1971 - December 11, 2011

“If you see me getting smaller, I’m leaving, don’t be grieving, just gotta get away from here, If you see me getting smaller, don’t worry, I’m in no hurry, I’ve got the right to disappear.”……… Waylon Jennings.

Bill leaves his dad Bill, sister Kelly, nieces Jade, Shae Lyn and Dakoda and nephew Jack to miss his humor and easy presence every day. He is also survived by his aunts, uncles and cousins who he knew all loved and supported him. Bill had friends from childhood who were more like brothers to him, and family to us, Gord and Geoff we can’t thank you enough. Bill always made friends easily with his humor and authentic way, even at work, Paul, Chris and Homer; we felt we knew you because Bill always spoke of you with a smile. We know Bill is now at peace with our mom Jackie who passed away in 2006. Bill and our dad were the best of pals; Bill always called him Wilbur and made us all laugh. I can’t express how much Dad treasured and cared for Bill from his first day until his last, despite the unbearable pain of losing such a loved child. Thank you to Dr. Newmarch and to all of the nurses who cared for Bill. In lieu of flowers a kind act paid forward to someone in need would be Bill’s wish, or even better in his opinion would be to take yourself to a Rolling Stones concert and think of him when they play Ruby Tuesday. Rest Easy Our Billy Boy.

BETTY O’FEE (nee Lovell)
August 12, 1926 - January 21, 2012

Our mother, Betty O’Fee (nee Lovell) of Kamloops passed away on January 21, 2012 after 85 years of a life well lived.

Mom is survived by her sisters in law Claire Steward and Anna Mayhew, seven children Mary (Doug), Sheila (Mike), Dan (Renee), Liam, K.C., John (Daniela) and Patti (Rolf), sixteen grandchildren and five great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces, nephews and a family of friends.

She was predeceased by our Dad, Liam O’Fee and was a special sister in law to his siblings Kathleen, Bridie, Mary, and John as well as their spouses. She also survived her two sisters Vivian and Kay, her son-in-laws Fred and Bob and her great-granddaughter Reagan.

Mom was born in Vancouver and entered the workforce as an aircraft riveter during the Second World War. From there she pursued a career in Nursing, graduating from the St. Paul’s Hospital School in 1948. She moved to Williams Lake to take her first hospital position and was introduced to Dad by his sister Claire who was Betty’s co-worker. They married in 1950 and started raising a family together first in Williams Lake and then at a radar base at Puntzi Mountain.

In 1958 Dad had an opportunity to transfer to the new Mount Lolo radar base so the growing family moved to Kamloops. Mom and Dad never left.

Our mother was a woman of humility backed by a strong faith, a quick wit and a kind heart. She rarely had a cross word for anyone and felt a deep commitment to help those less fortunate. No matter who you were, she was a person genuinely interested in you and the things that mattered to you. She could strike up a conversation with anyone and always made you feel that you were very special to her.

We always marvelled at her level of charity despite her modest income. From supporting foster children overseas to worthy local causes, dozens of organizations could count on Betty for support. Our mom was our touchstone for the things that are really important in life; Family, friends and an understanding that you are on this earth for a higher purpose. We all knew in our hearts that we could stand to be a bit more like Betty O’Fee. We miss her dearly but take comfort in the fact that her suffering was brief and that she is back together with her one true love.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Friday, January 27th at 11:00 am, with Funeral Prayers the evening prior at 7:00 pm. Reverend Father Peter Hoan Nguyen, Celebrant.

Special thanks to the doctors and nursing staff taking care of Mom in her last few days. She was very grateful for the attention and compassion you gave her. In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Betty’s memory to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, the charity of your choice or just take the time to commit a random act of kindness. Mom would like that.
