Bagshaw, Sally I.  
BAGSHAW: Sally Irene passed away on May 20, 2016, with family by her side and in the comfort of her home, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born on January 3, 1938, daughter of William and Ferne Anderson (Carnwath), Sally was a third generation Canadian, granddaughter to one of Vancouver's early pioneering families who settled in the city in the 1880's. From her childhood growing up in Vancouver, Sally developed lifelong friendships which she cherished and nurtured over the years. Many of her most fond memories are from spending time at the Carnwath family "camp" at Batchelor Bay in West Vancouver. She was a busy and devoted mother and an avid, if not expert, gardener who spent countless hours tending to her garden over the years. Her other endeavours included working as a volunteer with the Vancouver Art Gallery's Women's Auxilliary and the Art Rental Program, where she fostered further friendships and an appreciation for local art. She is survived by her loving children, Geoff and Heather, son-in-law Mark Pallai, adored grandchildren Jacob and Jordan, and her devoted companion, her dog Gemma, as well as numerous other close friends and family. The family would like to acknowledge the kindness of her nurses and other staff at Lions Gate Hospital, her numerous health care workers, as well as Dr. Paul Sugar for his tenderness and compassion. At her request, there will be no service held. If friends and family so desire, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation, or the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, .

Obituaries from the Past Week

BILN, Gurdev (Dave) Singh died peacefully with his family by his side on May 17th at Evergreen House North Vancouver, following a short illness. Born on September 24th, 1923, he was 92 years old, surviving his wife of over 75 years, Swaran Kaur, by 40 days. The last of his birth family, he was predeceased by his parents, sister and three brothers. Also predeceased by his son Kalwant Singh (Bill) Biln in 1998. He is survived by daughters Jessie Maan (Rajindra), Kallie Biln and son Jaswant Singh Biln (Marion). "Naana" will be remembered lovingly by his 10 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Gurdev was born in the village of Ferozepur, Punjab, India. He was schooled by Moslem scholars in nearby towns and completed 10th grade, which was quite an achievement for a villager in that era. He attained proficiency in Urdu, Hindi, Farsi, Punjabi and English. After marrying in the late 1930's, Gurdev worked as a bank clerk until moving to Lahore (now Pakistan) in 1945 to oversee the finances and payroll of the Lahore Police Force. An astute businessman, he and Swaran Kaur joined his father in Fiji in 1948 to operate a general store. After the birth of 3 of his children, he and Swaran Kaur returned to India in 1956 and emigrated to Canada in 1959, soon after the birth of son Kalwant. Gurdev worked at various mill towns in the Cariboo and moved to Squamish in 1963 to work at Empire Mills as a lumber grader until his retirement in 1988. After 43 years in Squamish, Mom and Dad moved to North Vancouver in 2008 and were lovingly cared for by Kallie and Jessie. Funeral services will be held at 1pm, Sunday May 22nd at Forest Lawn Funeral Home, 3789 Royal Oak Avenue, Burnaby, BC. A prayer service will be held afterwards at Akali Singh Sikh Temple, 1890 Skeena St, Vancouver, BC. Family and friends can contact Jessie at 604-817-3098 for more information. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to your local food bank. The family thanks Dr. Eric Briscoe and the staff at Evergreen House for their compassionate care of our beloved Naana.
