BURKART, Grayce Delores  
BURKART, Grayce Delores April 13, 1921 - July 24, 2015 Grayce said goodbye to us on Friday, July 24th as she left on a wonderful journey which she had been preparing for the past three years. She left to be with her husband Herman (Burk), her daughter Darla Jeanne, her baby son Chris, and great grandson Shawn who have been waiting for her for many years. She has gone to a magnificent place where flowers never stop blooming, birds sing joyfully, mountains are full of life and colour, oceans are warm, clean and a beautiful deep blue. Waterfalls are plentiful and the beauty is beyond our imagination. She is finally out of pain and can walk again. Her mind is clear and her voice has come back. She will be wearing fabulous earrings, colourful shoes and of course her sunglasses. She will be able to eat all the ice cream and chocolate she wants and won't gain a pound. This is her time to be at peace. She will be remembered as being strong, the lady who loved anything pink, feisty and our mother, grandmother and great grandmother. We are honoured to have had her as the leader of our pack. Daughters Linda Stewart (Dave), Carol McCormick, Susan Fisher (Roger), granddaughter Linda Sue Evans (Roy), grandsons Dave Stewart (Helena), Derrick and Chris Gaede, great grandsons Burk and Caleb Johnston. We would like to thank the caregivers and staff at Capilano Care Centre for their kindness and care they gave her. A special thank you to Robyn Holmberg for being such a great support to her.

DUSTING, Norman R. W.  
DUSTING, Norman R. W. The sun is over the yardarm so with sadness and great love, it's time to raise a glass to Norman Reginald Wynn Dusting (Dusty) and a life well-lived. Born in the English seaside town of Teignmouth to Reginald and Josephine, Norman and his sister Irene spent happy childhood years on the beaches of south Devon. At 12, following the death of his father, Norman became a boarder at West Buckland School where in his final year he was captain of the rugby and cricket teams and head boy. At 18 he joined the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve where he survived the torpedoing of the HMS Tweed, forged his deepest friendships on the HMS Loch Fada and traveled the world from Iceland to the Java Sea. In 1946 Singapore, inspired by a "Forestry as a Career" brochure, Dusty returned to England to work in the Forest of Dean and enroll in forestry at the University of Edinburgh. Disillusioned by a colonial focus on "logging with elephants", Norman emigrated to Canada in 1950 and enrolled in forestry at the University of B.C., where he ultimately won the gold medal in his class - but not before he met the enchanting Helen Lindsay (Lindy). They married in 1952. She earned the down payment and he built their first home in the wilds of Dollarton. Five children later they moved to a West Vancouver neighbourhood full of young families that spawned more life-long friendships. In the early '50s Dusty worked for CD Schultz, timber cruising in B.C. forests, before accepting a position with the B.C. Lumber Manufacturers Assn. So began a long, distinguished career promoting B.C. forest products in Europe and Asia. He retired in 1987 as executive vice-president of the Council of Forest Industries, having made strong professional and personal friendships, at home and abroad, many of whom Helen and Dusty warmly entertained in their home and visited on their international trips. With his business partner, Norman also established a successful dry kiln operation in Surrey, B.C. Always a project man, Norm built fences and decks, reroofed his house (with cedar shakes of course) and with Lindy, created a lush garden enjoyed by birds, people and too many squirrels. Family was the centre of their life with adventures and celebrations at Kiahuna, Pen y Bryn, Mount Washington, Galiano Island and the family home. He walked daily until recently faced with his final challenge, which he met with stoicism, humour and gratitude to all those who cared for him. He died peacefully in his home of 53 years with family at his side. Norman was devoted to his wife of 62 years, Helen (nee Lindsay), who passed away in February. He will be greatly missed by his 5 children Christopher (Mary Ann), Gilian (Nick), Patricia (Steve), Brian and Jennifer (Karl); 9 grandchildren Jordan, Deanna (Adam), Kelsey, Zoe, Ella, Maggie, Ben, Abbey and Adam; 16 nieces and nephews in Canada and Nigel and Kate in England; and 3 sisters-in-law (Gwen, Kay, Lois). He is predeceased by his parents Reginald and Josephine, his beloved sister, Irene and her husband Eric, 4 Canadian brothers-in-law (Bill, Rod, Keith and Barrie) and his sister-in-law (Peggy). Norman's life will be celebrated at St. Francis-in-the-Wood Church in West Vancouver on Monday, August 3 at 2 pm. Reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Galiano Health Care Society. Hollyburn Funeral Home 604-922-1221 www.hollyburnfunerals.com

She was the second youngest of 8 children of John and Barbara Paysen. She leaves to mourn her husband of 64 years, Harold (Ted) Hoover, children Gerald and Gloria, and granddaughter Mckenzie, many nieces, nephews, close friends Yvonne and Keith Doane and friends. To all who knew her she was a kind, compassionate, quiet, sweet and caring woman. She talked of life on the farm with great happiness. She had a love of animals, sports and nature all her life. In her early years she attended Robin Hood School, which was 3 miles from the Paysen farm. She was an excellent horseback rider and use to tell stories of racing her younger brother, Werner, to school on horses. She also reminisced about playing soccer and baseball. She was interested in the care of others. She first went to Luther College in Regina, than went to Weyburn to take her Psychiatric Nursing. She stayed there for 8 years. Then she met and married Harold (Ted ) Hoover July 19, 1952. As her husband was in the RCAF, they moved many times throughout Canada. She always found a new job, at a hospital, at every new destination. When her husband retired from the Air Force they moved to Richmond in 1971. There she found her dream home for her loving family. That is where she stayed for the rest of her life. She kept active nursing, than retired in 1985. She was involved in her community volunteering at community centres. She golfed in the summer with 2 women's groups and bowled in the winter. She and her husband bought a trailer and enjoyed many trips around Western Canada and the U.S. Then on one of their trips they went on an eight month trip across Canada and down into the Southern U.S. They golfed at 56 different golf courses on this trip. They also did many cruises and tours of the world. We would like to thank the Richmond Kinsmen Adult Centre and the South Arm Stroke Group for the help and support they gave our mother. Special thanks to Barbara, at the Stroke Group, for her prayers and watching out for our mother. Thanks to our Family Doctor, Dr. Quelch, for his extended support and going the extra mile.
