DONNELLY, Kenneth  
DONNELLY, Dr. Kenneth Rowland 1929 – 2015 It is with great sadness we announce that after some recent health challenges Dr. Kenneth Rowland Donnelly (MD) passed away on Sunday February 1, 2015. Ken was born March 13, 1929 in New Westminster B.C. to Percy and Connie Donnelly. Ken lived in Burnaby for most of his life, eventually moving into Duncan's Sunridge care facility in September 2008. Ken made many friends and was well liked by all in the short six and a half years that he was there. Special thanks to everyone involved in Ken's care especially the nursing staff in English Rose and Echo Rose houses that provided such great care during his time there. Thank you to all. Ken will be deeply missed by family, friends and all those that knew him. Ken was a "gifted" individual but never made it known, he "shined" from an early age not only excelling in school (earning scholarships regularly) but also earned many piano awards and even played and was recorded with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. After graduating from John Oliver High School in 1947 Ken enrolled at U.B.C. earning a fine arts degree in 1951, soon after he was accepted into the U.B.C. Medical School graduating with an M.D. in 1955, after completing his residency at various hospitals in the Vancouver area he began an illustrious teaching career as an associate professor in the Dept of Anatomy at U.B.C. Ken taught Anatomy and Neuroanatomy to 1st and 2nd year Medical and Dental students as well as Medical Residents, Physiotherapists and Occupational therapists. He was well respected amongst colleagues and students alike, students would say: "when it came to Anatomy or Neuroanatomy, there was Dr Donnelly… and then God" a compliment that he just brushed off not thinking he was anything special, although we all knew he was. Ken retired from teaching in 1994. A Celebration of Ken's Life will be announced at a later date. Online condolences may be offered at www.sandsduncan.ca

DUFOUR, Lawrence  
DUFOUR, Lawrence March 16, 1930 – February 25, 2015 Larry grew up - well, actually he never really grew up, but he lived in Regina before he could shave and for a few years after. He was a spirited and energetic fellow who saw only the fun side of life and who generated something in the neighbourhood of a zillion stories, many of them mostly true. Here is one. His father, Walter, owned the gasoline station and garage in Regina that had the contract to service the city firetrucks. He was not yet 15 when Walter left Larry alone in the garage one evening. Rather than sweep up as he was told, he wheeled one of the fire trucks onto Albert Street, turned on the siren and lights and gunned it, speeding the full length of Regina. And back. And there. And back. The police raised a bit of a stink afterwards, but he was not charged and his father did not lose the contract to service fire department vehicles. No harm, no foul. Larry went on to marry one of the most sought-after lovelies in Regina, Helen. They laughed and loved until Helen died a few years ago. Along the way, they raised four children: Warren (Brigitte), Geoffrey (Dianne), Julianne (Clay) and Carolyn (Rob). They, in turn, produced 11 grandchildren. They will all miss him and, so far as anyone will say, none has driven a fire truck. Yet. Of Larry's siblings, only Bernice Dunsmoor of Calgary is still living. His brothers Ed, Frank and Joe and his sister Lorena Tuepah are gone. Larry was larger than life in many respects and people loved to be near him. He made them laugh. He made them feel good. Larry did volunteer work with several Catholic churches in Saskatoon but most of all he liked working with his pals at the Nutana Lions, helping those with vision difficulties. The Lions never forgot him when his health declined - his spirits soared during the many, many times they visited him. They were great (roar!). At Larry's request, there will be a funeral mass for immediate family only. For those who would like to remember Larry and celebrate his life, make someone laugh today. That's what Larry would do.

EAST, Edythe  
Edythe East February 5, 1931- February 25, 2015 We are sad to announce the death of our mom Edy at Oliver Lodge in Saskatoon. She was the youngest child born of Irish immigrant parents. Mom grew up on a farm near Rosetown and lived all her adult life in Saskatoon. She spent many an hour volunteering as a Girl Guide leader and commissioner, and for the YWCA on the guild and at the Opportunity Shop. Our childhood summers were spent at "the lake" with mom at the helm. Crosswords and jigsaw puzzles were always a challenge she enjoyed (especially the ones that her brother Rob would send her without the box). She could always be found with a coffee, a cigarette and a good book by her side. Mom enjoyed many happy times with family and good friends. Her independence and feisty character defined who she was to the end. Edy was predeceased by her parents Robert and Sarah Wilson, brothers John (Mavis) and Robert, sister Jean (Erv) and great-grandson Ethan. Surviving Edy are son Jack (Nancy), daughters Barb (George), Bev (Les), Robin (Kim), and Rita (Marc), her baker's dozen of grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews as well as sister-in-law Helen and her children's father John East along with numerous East relatives. Thank you to the caregivers at both Prairie Springs Care Home, and Oliver Lodge for their compassionate care for the last several years. At mom's request there will be no funeral service. A private family Celebration of Her Life will be held at a later date. For those who may wish to do so please make donations to Oliver Lodge or the Alzheimer's Society in lieu of flowers. Condolences may be sent to mail@saskatoonfuneralhome.com. Arrangements have been entrusted to SASKATOON FUNERAL HOME (244-5577).

EASTHAM, Helen Mavis  
EASTHAM, Helen Mavis Helen Mavis Eastham, aged 96, passed away quietly on February 9, 2015 in Vancouver, her home of many years. She was the daughter of John and Alberta Middleton Eastham and was predeceased by her brother, Dr. Arthur (Marjorie) Eastham. Mavis was a longtime member of The (UBC) University Women's Club and the Parish of St. Mary's Anglican Church, Kerrisdale. She is survived by her nieces Jennifer and Diane of Ontario, nephew David (Anne) of Alberta, and her goddaughter Nancy Moore, also of Vancouver. Mavis worked for many years at the main branch of the Vancouver public library. She had an encyclopedic knowledge of her family's history and, as would be expected from a reference librarian, she encouraged us to read widely on many topics. She will be greatly missed. Thanks to everyone at Blenheim Lodge for their support and friendship over the years she lived there. A small family Service will be held Friday, February 27 at 11:30 a.m. at the Ocean View Burial Park, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby.
