WUEST, Virginia Doris . Age 90, died Tuesday, October 15, 2013, at Cairnsmore Place, Duncan, B.C. She was predeceased by her husband Henry G. Wuest and is survived by her daughter, Bonnie (Morris), granddaughters Elissa and Kate (Rob) and two great grandchildren, Linus and Anna. Virginia grew up in Whitney Point, New York, the only child of Everett and Claire Bowen. She loved animals, gardening, music, swimming, fishing, cooking, knitting, reading and trained as a Lab Technician after High School. She and Henry married in 1943 when he was in the Air Force. After serving in India during W.W. II, Henry worked for the Corps of Engineers and became Dam Tender of Whitney Point. Virginia worked at City Hospital and Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton, N.Y. They both enjoyed luxury cars, golfing, cards and snowmobiling. On retirement in 1976 they moved to the West Kootenays in British Columbia where they helped Bonnie and Morris farm, enjoyed their grandchildren and new friends and travelled throughout Canada and the USA. In 1988 they moved with them to Cobble Hill on Vancouver Island. They took great pleasure in exploring the island's attractions. Virginia was a member of St. John's Church, Cobble Hill, and also of the Cowichan Cat Rescue. She was a great lover of animals and had many favourite cats and dogs over the years. We shall always remember how much she enjoyed sitting out on her back porch watching the antics of the dogs while 'smelling' her flowers. For the past 6 years she had been a resident of Cairnsmore Place where she received the finest care from their dedicated staff. She loved being wheeled out to check on the flower gardens and to watch the comings and goings of residents and staff. Full of common sense and humour, she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A graveside service will be held at St. John's at a later date. On line condolences at www.hwwallacecbc.com
