Johnston, Hugh D.  
Born in Bengough, Sask., and raised on a farm in Oyen, AB, Hugh moved to Vancouver's West End in 1936. He served in the Canadian Forces off the coast of BC at the end of the war, which fostered a love of the sea and sailing that stayed with him the rest of his life. Hugh met the love of his life, Mildred Moret, at Kitsilano High while attending evening classes for returning veterans. After they wed, Hugh began a career with Woodwards from 1947 to 1984 that took him from the mailroom to store manager, with most time in the shoe department as manager or traveling the world as senior buyer. Service to the community was important to Hugh. He was a member of The Kinsmen Club through the 1950's and 60's and, upon his retirement, completed community projects as a member of Rotary International. When he wasn't down at the Hollyburn Sailing Club, he devoted much of his free time in local research for the West Vancouver Historical Society. For his efforts, he was named "Citizen of the Year" in 1992 by the West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce. He is predeceased by his beloved wife of 60 years, Millie, and survived by his children Bonnie Martens (Joe), Jan, Hugh (Martha Dan), Allan (Larina Layton), Lorna Moore (Rhory), and by his loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Much loved by his family and genuinely liked by all, Hugh will be missed. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Hugh's name to the community project of your choice.

Obituaries from the Past Week

Johnsen, Isobel Addison  
Isobel Addison Johnsen (née Clark) passed away peacefully with her family by her side. Isobel was born in Paisley, Scotland and emigrated to Canada in 1957. She married her Danish husband Jon in Toronto in 1960 and together they raised their three daughters. After Jon's passing in 2003, Isobel moved to West Vancouver. Isobel's greatest joy was spending time with her cherished family and treasured friends from the Ramblers Hiking Group, Seniors' Activity Centre, and ladies lunches. Left to honour Isobel and remember her love are her daughters, Susan (Brad), Janis (Denis), Carol (Don), and her grandchildren, Stephanie, Eric, Michael, and Sydney. Her kindness, generosity, and ability to make others feel special was a true gift. Her family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Sasha Smiljanic and the North Shore Hospice for their compassionate care and support. Isobel's wishes were to have a private family service. She will forever be in our hearts.
