BIRD, Josephine (Jo) Hazel Ada
Born on August 30, 1925; passed away on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. She will be missed by her family: Gordon (Cheri), Jamie, Julie Kadow (Ryan) and Rosaline Matos (Rui); Stuart (Susan), Jeff (Nathalie), Amy Frew (Seamus) and Matt; Maureen (Nancy Bennett), their 3 daughters; Shelley Winther (Peter), and Graeham; and great- grandchildren Ava and Noah Matos, Olivia and Stella Kadow, and Connor Bird. She will also be missed by her brother-in-law Duncan Bird (Barbara) of Calgary and their 3 daughters. Mum was proud of growing up in Hope, B.C. where a couple of lifelong friends still reside. She moved to Vancouver to attend UBC where she met Dad (Mac). Much of their lives together were spent on the North Shore, mainly in West Vancouver; they belonged to Hollyburn Country Club and St. Christopher's Church, where Mum was involved with The Guild for many years. After Dad passed away, Mum lived in Vancouver. Our parents made many friends and acquaintances in The Rotary Club of Vancouver, The CKNW Orphan's Fund, The Vancouver Club, The Capilano Golf and Country Club, The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, and through boating and travel. A Funeral Service will be held at St. Christopher's Anglican Church, 11th Street and Inglewood Avenue in West Vancouver, at 2:30 PM on Saturday, November 2, 2013. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish, donations in Jo's memory can be made to either The B.C. Cancer Society or The Alzheimer's Society of BC.
