FIELD, Gertrude (Pat)  
FIELD, Gertrude (Pat) June 3, 1922 - April 10, 2015 Our incredibly spirited, spiritual mother has left us to rejoin her beloved Terry. What a ride she has ahead. Raised by their mother Pearl, Pat and her brother Mickey graduated from Kitsilano Secondary. Pat waited 4 long years for the love of her life to return from war amidst news of Terry being shot down & becoming prisoner of war twice. We can only imagine. Once reunited they never looked back, and Pat & Terry shared an extraordinary life that included 5 children, 10 grandchildren, and 7 great grand children. Together they traveled the world gathering friendships and stories that were shared as recently as a few days ago. Born with the innate ability to truly connect with others, Pat always left people smiling. Not only did she make the best of life - she quietly showed others how to make the best of theirs. Always a believer in tradition and memory making, her recent birthdays included martini hopping in Vancouver and reflective moments in Monet's Garden in France. Michael, Shane, Patrick, Brady & Cindy honour and thank Dr Peter Schwarz, the Nurse Next Door team and all who have come to know and love our indefatigable mother and best of friends. A celebration of life will follow.

FIELD, Maud Joyce  
FIELD, Maud Joyce Born in Victoria, B.C. on May 27, 1918 and passed away in her sleep in North Vancouver, B.C. on April 13, 2015. Joyce was the youngest child of John and Laura Greenwood and spent an idyllic childhood in Strawberry Vale and other semi-rural parts of the Saanich Peninsula. Qualified as a nurse at St. Joseph's in Victoria, she joined the RCAF in 1942 and was stationed at Goose Bay, Labrador when she met the love of her life, the handsome Flight Lieutenant, Joseph Patrick Henry (Hank) Field, from Low, Quebec. They married in Montreal and, after discharge, settled in Vancouver and eventually (1959) on Gordon Avenue in West Van. They raised four children and several cats and dogs. They were active members of Saint Anthony's parish and their three younger children attended St. Anthony's school on Keith Road. In 1959, Joyce returned to work at St. Paul's hospital in Vancouver and spent many years in the Emergency Ward treating the citizens of the downtown east side and injured loggers and fishermen from up the coast. In 1972, Hank passed away too early and Joyce returned to UBC at age 54 to complete her Bachelor of Nursing Science degree. On graduation, she trained in enterostomal therapy and played a founding role as St. Paul's built a teaching clinic where nurses from all over North America came to learn from her team. In 1976, the children all gone, she sold the house on Gordon Avenue and moved up the hill to Nelson Avenue where she spent the last 39 years of her life. She retired finally in 1982 but became an active member of the West Van Seniors Centre and, in particular, the hiking group. Joyce had a long and fulfilling life. She is survived by her children, Elizabeth (Gerard), Patrick (Kim), Mary Lou (Gordon) and Joanna (Seth), as well as nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Viewing at Hollyburn Funeral Home at 1807 Marine Drive, West Vancouver on Saturday, April 18 at 5:00 p.m. Funeral service at St. Anthony's church, 2337 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver on Monday, April 20, at 11:00 a.m. with burial at Capilano View at 1:00 p.m. Reception to follow.

Yesterday's Obituaries

Fleming, Lilian Alice  
FLEMING, LILIAN Alice It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Lilian Alice Fleming, 86, of Tsawwassen BC, peacefully on Tuesday, March 24, 2015. Lilian was predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Earle, who passed away June 23, 2014. She is survived by her three children: Scott, Sandra Beard (Jonathan), and Lynda Mageau (Dwayne); and her beloved grandchildren Jordan Beard (Erica), Devon Beard Ormerod (Ryan), Danielle Mageau and Brittany Mageau. Lilian was born in Calcutta, India, the only child of her Scottish parents Walter and Lily Walker. She was educated in the Loreto Convent in the Himalayan mountains just outside of Darjeeling during the period when Mother Teresa served her mission there. Upon graduation in 1945, Lilian went to Glasgow, Scotland to study in a secretarial college returning again to Calcutta where she worked for just over three years. In 1951 she emigrated to Sydney, Australia where she once again joined her parents. In 1953 Lilian was selected from several hundred applicants to become one of three Canadian Pacific Airline's "Air Hostesses" to fly the inaugural South Pacific jet service on their new "Comet" aircraft. However, fate had a hand in her future when the aircraft crashed on takeoff in Karachi, Pakistan during its delivery flight to Sydney. The next day, Lilian and her fellow crew members were to fly the Comet's first flight across the Tasman Sea to Auckland, NZ, with a full load of journalists. In what became an early example of Lilian's pluck and courage, she was undeterred in her love of flying and was instead trained on the DC-6B aircraft, which she flew for two and a half years between Sydney, Auckland and Fiji. During this time, Lilian was based in Korolevu, Fiji. It was there that she met her husband-to-be Earle who was then a First Officer also flying the South Pacific route. The "beach resort" romance led to their marriage in Sydney, Australia in 1956. However, those were the days when the jeweled evidence of an engagement resulted in an Air Hostess having to immediately resign their position, which Lilian had to do. Shortly after their wedding Lilian and Earle relocated to Edmonton for three years before permanently settling in Tsawwassen in 1960. The house that they had designed together remained their family home for almost 53 years. Lilian took to the skies once again in 1978 when she, and several other "retired" former flight attendants, were hired by Pacific Western Airlines to fly during their busy charter season. Within the company, this group of new hires was affectionately referred to as the "re-treads". But months turned into years, and airline amalgamations resulted in Lilian once again coming home to fly with Canadian Airlines International. At age 65, she retired after close to 16 years of bringing her warmth, life experience, boundless energy and genuine love of passengers, to the skies. Dozens of letters of commendation and thanks from passengers and colleagues proved that "re-treads" could indeed have a long and successful second career. In her retirement, Lilian enjoyed cruising with her family, caring for their home, and relishing in the companionship of their beloved West Highland White Terrier. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, May 3rd from 12-4pm at: 4446 Dawn Dr. Ladner. All of her neighbours, friends and airline colleagues are warmly invited to attend to share stories, memories and some good laughs.
