EAGLE, Desmond James  
In Memory Of EAGLE Desmond James, "DES" Des passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of his children Judy, Christine and Ken, on Sunday afternoon, December 22, 2013 to join his beloved wife of 56 years, Gwendolyn June who pre-deceased him in 2010. Born in Napier, New Zealand on August 4, 1930, Des made his way to Canada and married Gwen, the love of his life, on January 30, 1954 in Toronto. He was a devoted husband to Gwen, father to Judy (Jim) Galpin, Christine (Mark) Dean and Ken Eagle, Papa to Kristina, Julia (Dana), Daniel (Holly), Brian and Adam and GG (Great-Grandpa) to Kai and Griffin. Des began his career in the floor covering industry in Toronto in 1953. This took Des and Gwen to Montreal, back to Toronto and finally to Vancouver in 1970 before arriving in Comox, to co-own along with Gwen, the Courtenay United Carpet store for over twenty years. Des was involved in, and also served as President of, the National Association of Floor Covering Distributors for many years and in February 2013 was very proud to celebrate his 60th Anniversary in the business. Dad will always be remembered for his wisdom and quick wit. He is sorely missed. Not being a man to bring attention to himself, Dad requested a private family service which was held on Friday, May 23, 2014, at the Courtenay Civic Cemetery. It is with great love and joy that we remember our parents every day. We were blessed. If desired, a donation in memory of Des can be made to the Comox Valley Youth for Christ, PO Box 3333, Courtenay, V9N 5N5 or Keats Camps, #100-657 Marine Dr., West Vancouver, V7T 1A4.

Gambioli, Remo  
GAMBIOLI, Remo March 17, 1928 - January 9, 2015 With great sadness we announce the passing of Remo Gambioli; "Dad", "Nonno", "Uncle Remo". He was born in the small Italian village of Secchiano, almost 87 years ago. He grew up on his parent's farm and emigrated to Canada at the age of 23; first to Quebec, and then to the West Coast, settling in Horseshoe Bay in 1958. Remo's trademarks were his indefatigable need to work, and his VW bus. He worked hard as a cement finisher and stone mason for most of his career; building many of the towers in Vancouver's West End and downtown, and much of Simon Fraser University, but the work Remo loved the most was gardening. He worked every day in his own garden, and on weekends for clients all over the North Shore. His enormous fruit and vegetable garden was widely known in the community for its abundance and variety. Remo's "pets" were his beloved bees and the honey they provided, and his hens, which he cared for tenderly for decades. Remo is lovingly survived by his wife Marie, daughter Nora (Franz), grandchildren Gabi and Mia; sister Tecla (Virgilio), nieces Graziella (Primo) and Donatella (Angelo) in Italy; step-children Hans (Teresa), Rolf (Ronaye), Jeremy, Charmagne (Allen), CJ (Janie); and all of their children: Karsten (Kristen), Solveig (Yoann), Fenella (Jason), Leo, Harley, Nicolas, Nathaniel, and Lily-Margaret. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 11am, St. Anthony's Catholic Church (2347 Inglewood Ave, West Vancouver). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation or the Paul Sugar Palliative Foundation. The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude for the compassionate care that Remo received at Lions Gate Hospital Intensive Care Unit.

She lived a life full of adventure that took her around the world. Joy completed her nursing qualification in Edinburgh, Scotland and qualified as a midwife in N.

In the 1990's Joy was joined in Canada by her children and continued life as Granny to her two grandsons and four granddaughters.

Joy is remembered by her children as Mom - strong, smart and loving. Granny is lovingly remembered by her grandchildren for all her valuable life lessons, including proper grammar and good manners as well as for spoiling each of them when no-one was watching. She was the family doctor to all with a cure for everything and will forever be remembered as a loving, supportive, involved, and amazing wife, mom and Granny. Joy will be missed dearly by her family and friends. .

Heldman, Joyce M.  
Joyce Marguerite Heldman, born July 2, 1925 in Winnipeg to William and Margaret Bandeen, passed away on January 6, 2015. Joyce's calm demeanour, legendary gingersnaps, and delight in the accomplishments of her family will be missed. Marriage took her to Kitchener, where she had three daughters: Margaret (Richard), Alison (Ronald) and Beth (Jeff). Next stop was Tsawwassen, where Joyce raised her girls and then worked at the Post Office. Retirement brought further joy from her grandchildren, Julia, Sandy, Christopher, Mackenzie and Angus, all of whom adored their beloved Gran. Joyce's family is grateful to the many kind and caring souls that enriched her life: meaningful conversations with her niece, Joanne Wood; 84 years of friendship with her kindergarten classmate, Jean Ryan (nee Walker); a deep connection to the natural world strengthened by Edward Van Veenedaal who planned, built and maintained her garden.

Henderson, Ross  
Obituary: Ross Henderson, September 24, 1919 to January 18, 2015. Ross Henderson died peacefully in his home on Grand Boulevard in North Vancouver on Sunday. He was surrounded by his family in his last few days, for which he considered himself so lucky. He is missed by his three daughters and their partners: Carol and Doug Botting, Helen and Doug Bing, and Nancy Henderson; his eight grandchildren and their partners: Rachel (Andrew) Walker, Rebecca (Mel Garbe) Carroll, Emily (Rob) Petretta, Jeremy (Suzanne Simpson) Bing, Graham (Tamra) Bing, Eric Bing, Robin Heywood, and Patrick Heywood; four greatgrandchildren: Heath, Ella, Ross, and Henry (and another expected within weeks); twelve nieces and nephews and their partners and children, 2 brothers in law and 2 sisters in law. He was born September 24, 1919 in Morden, Manitoba. He felt his most significant act in life was to meet Freida Thordarson, at the University of Winnipeg, in his first term there in 1945, after his war service with the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. They married in 1947 and moved to BC, first to the Okanagan and then to North Vancouver and to Grand Blvd in 1959. He taught English at Sutherland Secondary School from then until his retirement in 1979, and enjoyed running into former students for the rest of his life. He spent his retirement in activities like photography, volunteering at the Margaret Fulton Centre, playing bridge with his good friends, and having coffee with faithful visitors like Roy Thordarson, who baked his favourite butter tarts. He missed his wife, Freida, terribly after her death in 2002, but was well cared for from then on by his beloved caregiver, Hilda Barang and her husband, Ronnie. Ross's main interest was his family, with whom he kept in very close contact. He was particularly fond of the family times at our cabin, Toad Hall, and was there every summer for close to 60 years. He was interested in all the families' activities, but most loved that we all enjoyed each other's company. Even when his deafness meant he couldn't hear all the conversations, he enjoyed being in the midst of it all. He was much loved and his positive outlook and appreciation of life is an inspiration to us all. The celebration of his life well lived will be held at 2 pm on Thursday, January 22nd at St Andrews United Church, at 10th and St. George's, in North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the BC Lung Association or a charity of your choice.

Henry, Kari Anne  
HENRY, Kari Anne June 10th 1975 - January 5th, 2015 . It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Kari Anne. She joins her mother's open arms awaiting her in heaven. Born in Winnipeg, Kari came to Vancouver in 1980 where she lived until 1991. She moved to Gibsons where she met and married her then husband Dale. On August 10th, 1995 her greatest love in life was born, her daughter Haley. Kari went back to school to pursue nursing. In 2000 Kari moved back to North Vancouver to work as an LPN. Kari loved her job and co-workers on 7 East at Lions Gate Hospital. She cared deeply for each one of her patients, often just sitting with them and holding their hand. She leaves behind her beloved daughter Haley, father Ivan, sister Tanya, brother-in-law David, nephew Cito, niece Britney, uncle Darwyn, and extended family members. As well as friends (especially Carly) and co-workers. She was a tireless advocate for her father Ivan; she proudly fought for his release. "I am a Henry and we don't give up". Kari has battled through tough times over the last several years, but she had always picked herself back up, dusted herself off, and tried again. Always relentless. She was the bright light in many people's day. Her smiling face, contagious laughter and amazing sense of humour will be sadly missed. Memorial service to be announced. Finally, the pain has passed Kari, and she is at rest. We will miss and think of her everyday. Until we all meet again.

HETHERINGTON, Joan (Sanders)  
HETHERINGTON, Joan (nee Sanders) August 5, 1930 - January 7, 2015 Joan passed away at Irene Thomas Hospice from cancer January 7, with John, her loving husband of 63 years, family and friends, at her side. Born in Yorkshire, England to Joseph and Mary Jane Sanders, Joan won a college scholarship to become a stenographer and shorthand court reporter, winning an achievement medal in shorthand (180 words/minute). After marrying in Sault St. Marie, she worked in Kitimat in the 1950's and later for many years in the Provincial Court in Ottawa. Not one to let a problem go unchallenged Joan was a founding member of GASP (Group Against Smoking Pollution 1970's). She was a catalyst for restoring cottonwood trees along the north side of Ladner Trunk Rd for raptors, after the habitat had been lost to rampant greenhouse development, with the lilac bushes as a nice touch. In 2002 she was awarded the Burn's Bog Conservation Society "Celebrating Women and the Spirit of the Cranes" Arts Award. This recognized Joan helping the environment by being a "driving force behind the original no-smoking campaign" that later spread nationwide. Many people knew Joan as a talented pianist who taught people to play, or who heard her play piano for the residents at Augustine House & Kinsmen's. She also enjoyed painting watercolour and attending local classes and groups over the years. Joan leaves behind her loving husband, John, her son David, her daughters Anne and Susan, Susan's Fiancé Jason Taylor, and Joan's brother in England, Richard Sanders. We are saddened, but also so very proud of her. Through all of her challenges, Joan was characteristically a shining example of positivity, forgiveness, & kindness - she is truly a testament to a life well lived. She found great comfort through her spirituality and will always be remembered for sharing "Love and Light". Joan requested no funeral, flowers or service; however a Celebration of Life will be organized at a later date.
