(nee Smallwood) "Ginger"  

Born near London (UK) April 30, 1918; died December 25, 2012 at Capital Caring's Halquist Memorial Inpatient Centre in Arlington, VA. A woman who remained intellectually curious and lively to the end, she valued her independence and enjoyed being in charge. It is a testimony to her will and courage that she succeeded in making her ultimate mortal arrangements as ably as she did. Predeceased by her father Arthur Thomas Smallwood, her mother Frances Sophy (neé Stone), her step-father Francis "Frank" Willoughby Smallwood and siblings Ursula "Tish" Finlay (Coquitlam, BC), Iris Haverfield Brown (Vancouver, BC), Anthony "Tony" W. Smallwood (Vancouver, BC), Stella Chamberlain (London, UK) and John W. Smallwood (Roberts Creek, BC), she is survived by her sister Barbara "Ba/Babs" Taplin (Cranbrook, BC) and children Peter McHugh, his wife Dee (Hampton, VA), Heather McHugh (Seattle, WA / Victoria, BC) and Jan McHugh (London, UK).
