Anne Marie Andrew (nee Harvey) - Anne left us at noon on June 12, 2016, surrounded by her family and her dearest friends. She was born in Montreal on January 1, 1945 to Irene and George Harvey and raised primarily in Vancouver, where she attended Little Flower Academy, graduating in 1963 with a group of friends she kept close for the rest of her life. Loving and empathetic, Anne had a talent for relationships, and was at the centre of many circles of friends. She was also at the centre of her family, both the large family she was born into (and the boss of which she had been for the 40 years since the death of their mother), and the family she created with her husband Bob, the love of her life for over 50 years. She was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, giving generously of herself in each of those roles. Anne had an opinion on everything, and although we all got more advice and guidance than we wanted (though perhaps not more than we needed), we always knew it was given in what she believed to be our best interest. She will continue to inspire our family and her friends to be and do their best. She loved life and all its beauty - music, art, special handmade things, gardens, our fabulous coastline. She also made beautiful spaces, especially the lovely house and garden she and Bob envisioned and then created together on their Bowen Island property, and she liked nothing better than to welcome their family and friends into its warm embrace. She loved to sail, and she and Bob spent many happy weeks cruising together in the Gulf Islands and the Desolation Sound area nearly every year for 40 years, first with their children and then also with other family members and dear friends. The boat, like the house at Bowen, has always been the centre of fun and of the camaraderie Anne valued and fostered, but she also loved the many quiet evenings and weekends spent on the boat with her beloved Bob. Always a songbird, Anne was an early and enthusiastic member of the EnChor choir. She loved to sing, and delighted in the many good friends she made there, and in the opportunity to create gorgeous music with such a talented group of people. Anne also liked to travel, and was fortunate to be able to see, with Bob, much of Europe and parts of the Far East. In the midst of all that, she was for 35 years a busy and successful real estate agent whose caring attitude, good sense and hard work on their behalf turned many clients into friends. Anne leaves behind a great many people who miss her terribly, including her husband, Bob; their children, Greg and Leigh; Greg's wife Michelle; Leigh's two lovely children, Thomas and Rachel; Anne and Bob's honorary grandchild, Meredith; Anne's sisters and brothers and their spouses and partners; and many other treasured family members and friends. A service celebrating her life will be held at 11:30 a.m. on July 6, 2016 at the West Point Grey United Church, 4595 West 8th Avenue in Vancouver, followed by a luncheon reception at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, 3811 Point Grey Road. In lieu of flowers, please do someone a good turn in Anne's honour. She would be pleased.

Mary Allison James Auerbach 30 August 1923 - 14 June 2016 Born in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Mary passed away peacefully at home in Vancouver surrounded by family. She died the way she lived - with grace and dignity. Mary left her farm home near Princeton New Jersey at age 19 to attend Ryerson College. She became a skilled stenographer in the days of shorthand, typewriters and carbon paper. She also became a single engine commercial pilot ferrying light aircraft from the manufacturer to airports across the U.S. Mary went on to become the secretary and administrative assistant to the CEO of NBC. Although she loved New York City, Mary longed to live in Europe and to do so joined the US Army as a civilian. She served as assistant to US Army Generals in Orleans and Paris, France. There she met her future husband Herb Auerbach. They married, returned to the States and then moved to Canada, becoming Canadian citizens and raising their family of 5 children - Marc, Michele, Paul, Karen and Andrew - in Montreal and then Vancouver. Notwithstanding the excitement of her previous careers, being a wife and mother, was to her the best and most rewarding career of them all. Mary was also a great animal lover and fostered countless cats over the years. She was a founding director of the Vancouver Humane Society. Mary was pre-deceased by her brothers, Francis, Leonard and Edward James; her sister, Patricia Golden; and daughter, Karen Nabors. Her death will leave a great void in the lives of her husband, and their children, Marc and his partner Alice, Michele and her husband John, Andrew and his wife Erica, Paul and his partner Crystal; as well her grandchildren, Glenn Nabors and Paris Nabors (and their partners Cha-Rae and Katrina), Claire, Dean, Will Ruskin, Atticus and Roman Auerbach; and great grandchildren, Jeremiah and Isabella Nabors; her sisters in law, Linda Auerbach and Kay James; and many nieces and nephews; not to mention her many friends in Canada, the U.S, and in France. In helping Mary through her last journey her family wishes to thank and acknowledge their care and compassion, the doctors and nurses at the BC Cancer Agency, especially Dr. Hagen Kennecke, the Palliative Care team, in particular Care Nurses Reni and Florence and Caregivers Lynn, Pooja, and Rose as well as her personal physician Dr. Neasa Coll. A memorial will take place at Van Dusen Gardens on Thursday morning, June 23, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Those who wish, may also remember Mary by making a donation to the Vancouver Humane Society of British Columbia www.vancouverhumanesociety.bc.ca or a charity of their choice.
