Birch-Jones, Angela Maureen (nee Firth)
Peacefully, while surrounded by the love of her family on April 24th at the age of 83. Lovingly remembered by her children Christopher, David, Jennifer (Suzzanne), Michael (Sandy) and Timothy (Pamela), her grand-children Morgan, Sam, Jessica, Jake, Joshua, Krista, Michael, Laura and Emily, and her family in England; Hazel, the wife of her much loved brother Brian (deceased), and their children Jeremy (deceased) (Rowena), Caz (Tony) and Nick (Gaynor). Born in Wallasey, England to Edward and Maureen Firth, Angela graduated from the University of London with double honours in math. After working with the BBC, she joined the Royal Navy as a Wren Officer, training at Royal Naval College Greenwich where she met and later married Canadian Sub. Lt. Peter Birch-Jones. They returned to Canada in 1951, settling first in Victoria, followed by subsequent postings to Halifax, Toronto and Ottawa where she settled in 1971 with her five children. In addition to raising her children, Angela had a distinguished career, teaching mathematics at Dalhousie, Toronto, and Ottawa universities, and Elmwood School in Rockcliffe. She went on to work with the Bank of Canada from which she retired in 1996. Angela’s deep love and appreciation for classical and choral music was apparent throughout her life, particularly her involvement with the Ottawa Choral Society for over twenty years, where she sang as an alto and performed in concerts in Canada and abroad. She was also very active as a volunteer in the Ottawa music community, serving on the Board of the Ottawa Choral Society for a number of years, as well as volunteering with the Thirteen Strings and Ottawa Chamber Music Festival. Her love for music was closely followed by her passion for gardening and her green thumb was apparent to all who came to see her throughout the seasons in her Chelsea home where she spent many of her happiest days, along with her much loved cats. A private family celebration of Angela’s life will be held at a later date. For those wishing to make a donation, two of Angela’s favourite charities were the St. Joe’s Women’s Centre and the Ottawa Choral Society.
