STOCKAND, Kathleen Maria  
STOCKAND, Kathleen Maria Born Nov. 24, 1929- April 6, 2015 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and friend, Kay Stockand. Kay was born in Cumberland to George Hoffheinz and Violet ( Yolanda Zanini) on November 24, 1929. Her father was a coal miner and she spent the first twelve years of her life living in the close knit community of Whyte's Bay on Comox Lake in a cabin that her father built and that is still standing and in use to this day. Her father had to move the family to Honeymoon Bay on Cowichan Lake for work in her final year of high school where she graduated in 1948. After attending Normal School in Victoria, she started her teaching career in the one room school house in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver in 1949. After several years she moved back to her beloved Comox Valley and taught in various schools over the course of her 35 year teaching career, ending up at Arden Elementary in her final years before retirement. Throughout her life, Kay above all loved the valley and was so proud of where she came from. She felt so fortunate to be from such a place of beauty and abundance. She instilled that love in her two children, Margot McNally (Bob) and son Charles Stockand (Lora). She also leaves behind her husband of 52 years Raymond (special care unit Cumberland Lodge) and grandsons Erik, Kurtis, George and Nicholas. Special thanks to Dr. Neufeld, Dr. Harris and the 3rd floor nursing staff of St. Joseph's Hospital. Their care and compassion at the end of Kay's life was exemplary and greatly appreciated by the family. She did not wish a service.

Tancon, Amalia  
TANCON, AMALIA November 13, 1924 - April 13, 2015 . It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Amalia Tancon on April 13, 2015 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Comox. Amalia (nee Adami) was born November 13, 1924 in the village of Gares in the Dolomite Alps of Northeastern Italy. She married Ottorino Alberto Tancon in 1947 and moved to his town of Canale D'Agordo where 4 sons were born. Her husband immigrated to Canada in 1951 to find work, and Amalia with 4 boys joined him in Ocean Falls, BC in 1956. They were blessed with 5 more children and had many happy years in that thriving paper mill community. Amalia was a woman of strong faith that saw her through some very difficult times, including the loss of her husband to cancer in 1970 at just 49 years old, and the loss of their son Bruno Robert in 1996. She was the true matriarch of the family- strong, loving and passionate. Moving her family to Campbell River in 1971, she learned to drive and went to work to support her youngest children. She bought a house and lived there independently for 43 years until 2014, when her health began to fail. Grateful thanks to Frank and Wendy who cared for her in their home until she needed extended care. Amalia is survived by her sons Paolo (Joanna), Gino (Catherine), Federico (Bev), Renato (Chris), Franco (Wendy), Mario (Melodie), Daniele (Angela), and her only daughter Maria Matheson (Neil). Amalia leaves a legacy of many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who thrived on her love and Italian cooking. She was much loved by her large family and many friends and will be greatly missed. The family would like to thank Dr. Brian Carswell, her physician of many years, as well as the staff of Campbell River and District General Hospital, Dr. Matt Robertson and the staff of Oceanview Extended Care at St. Joseph's Hospital, for their compassionate care of Amalia in her final few months. Thanks also to Mario for lovingly providing her with many home cooked meals. Amalia's funeral service will held in Campbell River at St Patrick's Catholic Church on Friday, April 24, at 11:00 am.

Velvet was very proud of her children and all they accomplished in their young lives. She was always there for them to offer positive encouragement, guidance and praise in whatever choices they pursued, always instilling the importance of strength in family and friends. Velvet loved travelling, jazzercise, gardening, animals, the great outdoors and simply enjoying life. Her positive outlook, demeanour, and attitude as she battled cancer was inspirational to all who knew her. Her expression, "Well guys, it is what it is", will be remembered by all.

West, Colleen Norma (Young)  
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma. Colleen was predeceased by her parents, Norm and Jane, brother, William and her husband, George. She is survived by her brother, Tom (Dee), children, Rick (Barb), Lorraine (Tracy), Linda (Tom), grandchildren, Robbie (Jenna), Kyle, Jamie (Darlene), Krista (James), great grandchildren, Autumn, Lucas, Preston and Alex, as well as, her loyal pooch, Babe. Colleen was her happiest when she had a full house. She housed and fed many boarders and her children filled her home with their many friends. To know Colleen, you knew she was in need of a revolving door. Everyone was always made to feel welcome, no matter the time of day (or night!) Colleen loved to gamble, play bingo, work in her flower beds, camp, and in their retirement years, spend winters in Yuma with George and their snowbird friends. Colleen was quite the storyteller, and was able to relay names, dates and detailed facts about any events that she had experienced in her lifetime. And gauging by the smiles and giggles at the end of every tale, her lifetime experiences involving her family and her many friends, were happy and filled with joy. We would like to take this opportunity to give a heartfelt thank you to the Staff and Volunteers of Ty Watson House. You are truly amazing! A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, April 19, 2015, 1pm - 3pm, at the Alberni Valley Rescue Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Ty Watson House. Stories and condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.yatesfuneral.ca
