O'BRIEN, Bridget Jane Born on January 8th, 1927, in England, Bridget arrived with great enthusiasm to Canada in 1962. A qualified registered nurse and midwife, and with a great sense of adventure, Bridget soon headed to Baffin Island to practice her profession amongst the local Eskimo population. Later, her career took her to the community of Moose Factory in Northern Ontario, and finally to Whitehorse in the Yukon where she remained until retirement. In 1988, Bridget settled in Victoria, soon becoming an active and faithful member of the Catholic Church and an energetic volunteer at Mt. St. Mary's Hospital. Bridget was a kind and gentle lady and leaves behind her many friends in Victoria and numerous friends and former colleagues in Ontario, the Yukon, and Ireland. She is especially fondly remembered by Kay and John Haswell of Brampton, Ontario, Camilla and Alan Bevan, Andrea and Robert Lelange, and Catherine and David Ellis of Victoria, Angela Suhan and Catherine and Tom Kelly of Ladysmith, and by Richard Haworth of Surrey, England. A service will be held at St. Andrews Cathedral on Blanchard Street on Thursday, January 8th, 2015, at 12:00 p.m., followed by a reception at St. Andrews Cathedral Parish Centre, 740 View Street.
