Goodman, Jean (Minto)  
GOODMAN, Jean March 1, 1932 - September 5, 2016 Jean Goodman (nee Minto), age 84, passed away Monday, September 5th, 2016 at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver. She was born March 1st, 1932 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Jean travelled to Vancouver in 1955 thinking it would be for 2 years, but she met her husband-to-be, Derek. They were married August 25th, 1956, lived in West Vancouver and recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They had two sons: Colin (deceased), wife Lynn and grandchildren, Dège and Melissa; Blair, wife Dawn and grandchildren Andrew, Daniel, Torreana. She is survived by her husband, Derek. In Scotland, she leaves brothers Ronnie (Marion) and Derek (Anne), and half sisters Betty and Morag; and in California, brother-in-law Keith. She has many nieces and nephews in Scotland and Canada. She was predeceased by brother Lawrence (Christine) in Scotland, sister Yvonne (Bill) in Campbell River, and brother-in-law Alan (Pat, deceased) in Montreal. Jean's many interests, starting in Scotland, include her love of hiking and rock climbing which she was able to continue here in BC. Also initiated in Scotland was her service with the Cubs, Boy Scouts Association; she continued as a cub leader for 12 years at St Stephen's Anglican Church in West Vancouver. She was also involved with the Scout Guild with her total years in scouting being 50. Jean attended St Francis in-the-Wood Anglican Church for many years; she worked with the sanctuary guild, and in later years enjoyed a study group. Both Jean and Derek spent many years camping and travelling in their "English caravan". Jean travelled abroad with friends to Scotland, France, Nepal and the Philippines. She enjoyed doing crafts, excelled in knitting and volunteered at the West Vancouver Senior Centre for 12 years. Playing badminton, and skiing on Hollyburn Mountain, where the couple had a cabin called "Hellzapopinn", took up much of her time. In all those pursuits, Jean felt fortunate to have met so many wonderful people and to have made so many friends. A celebration of Jean's life will be held at St Francis in-the-Wood Anglican Church, 4773 South Piccadilly Road, West Vancouver on Friday, September 30th, at 1:00 pm. It would be appreciated for any donations to be directed to Lions Gate Hospital or Hope Centre, both located in North Vancouver.

GRAHAM, Isabelle McGivern  
GRAHAM, Isabelle McGivern Our proud and feisty Mother, Mother-in-Law, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Aunt and friend to all, died peacefully early in the morning of Monday, September 12th, 2016. She was born on December 17, 1925 in New Westminster and lived there all her life, almost 91 years. She is predeceased by her parents, Mary Ann and Hugh John McGivern, both born in Ireland; her husband Ray, and her siblings, Esther, Hugh and Jim. While raising her sons and working full time at the New Westminster City Hall, she was always busy and had a talent for cooking, baking, gardening and sewing. She enjoyed many global trips with her husband, Ray, and later, to California to see her grandchildren. She hosted many New Year's Day parties, Easters at their cottage and much later, she joined her family for every important celebration while insisting that she provide the ham and turkey! Despite her busy schedule, she made it a point to always look her very best and have the shiniest shoes in town! She was determined, positive and never gave in to self pity or complaints. She taught us all that perseverance and a wicked sense of humour could get a person through anything and she was the first one to help anyone who needed a hand. She spoke often about one of the greatest things that she ever did was to move into Thornebridge Gardens in New Westminster, long before she really required any assistance. She loved the friends that she made there and would always fill a little bowl of candy outside her door every Saturday morning for all to enjoy. Her greatest pride in life however, was her family and all their pets; her sons, Jim (Barbi), Howard and John, and precious grandchildren Jane, (Dave), Kris, (Ashit) Maria (Tennille), Angelica (Scott), Daniel (Denise) and Jolene (Krista). Her eyes always danced when she spoke of her great-grandchildren Robert, Lauren, Samir, Maya, Kaein, Grayson, Irelyn, Peyton and Skylar and her love was clearly shown with chocolate bars given whenever anyone was leaving! Our dear and precious lady will be forever missed. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your local SPCA. A celebration of her life will be held in the near future. Godspeed Mom, Gran, Great-Granny and friend. You will be in our hearts forever.

Grise, Terry Lynn (Grisenthwaite)  
Terry passed away peacefully at home in Richmond at the age of 61 after courageously fighting Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) for several years. She leaves behind her loving husband of 16 years, Lorne Carney, stepson Kevin, her parents Bob and Doreen Grisenthwaite along with her sisters, Debra Weber (Mike) and Lynda Wallace, nephews, Ryan Weber (Charlotte), and Tyler Wallace, and great nephew Emil Weber. She is also remembered by her many good friends. Terry accomplished a great deal in her life. She was caring and generous, and had a great sense of humour. At times, she could be quite opinionated and was passionate about her beliefs. All her life she demonstrated a high level of determination. Terry was born in Vancouver and grew up always knowing she wanted to be a veterinarian. She had a happy, active childhood enjoying many activities. Her family moved to Victoria when she was 14 and there she spent a lot of her spare time riding and looking after horses at the local stables. After graduating from Mt Douglas High School she attended UBC and then went on to the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon to earn her doctorate. Terry pursued her veterinary career in St John's, Newfoundland and North Vancouver before establishing Companion Animal Clinic in Richmond where, for more than 20 years she dedicated herself to providing a high-level of care to animals along with showing compassion and kindness to their owners. Terry loved her work and was very committed to her profession. It was during this time that she met her future husband Lorne when he brought his basset hound, Astro to her clinic. Terry had a variety of interests including horseback riding, skiing, swimming, scuba-diving, hiking, ball-room dancing, toastmasters, tole-painting, traveling, music - both singing, and playing a piano keyboard. She also loved to quilt and made a number of beautiful items enjoyed by her family. Terry and Lorne annually traveled to Mexico for many years along with memorable trips to Europe. Terry had many pets during her lifetime and provided a wonderful home for them. She often walked her dogs in South Arm Park or along the Fraser River. She loved her home and garden and spent many hours in recent years resting by the window or lying on a lounge chair enjoying the flowers and watching her cats play together. Illness prevented Terry from participating in many activities in her later years and she missed not being able to visit with family and friends very often. She would read when she could, listen to music, and even taught herself to play the ukulele while resting on her bed. Lorne took good care of her and his love and companionship made quite a difference to her day to day life while she was ill. As we say goodbye to Terry we are comforted knowing she is at peace. We will deeply miss her presence in our lives and will always hold her close in our hearts. There will be no service by request. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the BC SPCA, 7791 Steveston Hwy, Richmond BC V7A 1L9. Condolences may be offered at www.arbormemorial.ca/en/richmond
