Gayle was born and raised in Calgary. She was married in 1974 and the family lived briefly in Red Deer before moving to Winnipeg in 1977. After returning in 1978, Calgary was home until her move to Vancouver in 1985 where she lived until her passing.

In loving memory of Alfred Wilkinson 1923 - 2015 Beautiful memories silently kept Of one that we loved And will never forget WALKER, William Oliver Apr. 8, 1942 - February 2020 We sadly announce that William (Bill) Oliver Walker passed away peacefully in his sleep in February, in South Surrey, B.C. He will forever be remembered and sadly missed by his daughters, Cindy Walker (Brad Odsen) of Edmonton and grandsons, Nathaniel and Abraham; Arlaine Mozell (Wil) of North Vancouver, BC and grandsons Andrew and Jonathan; his brother George Walker of St. Albert, AB as well as many nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues. Though Bill was a prairie boy and held great fondness for his family, friends and memories there he loved his life on the coast and seemed happiest when he was near the sea. A private service will be held to honour him when it is safe for loved ones to travel. Harrison grew up on the backyard rinks of Edmonton and enjoyed a successful career playing hockey in his early twenties. He played in Edmonton, Los Angeles and Kansas City, and won a championsh­ip with the UBC Hockey Team in 1949/1950. His love of hockey culminated in a gold medal for Canada in the 1950 World Championsh­ips, the same year he married his loving wife Wilma Lyle Watson. Ultimately Hass was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame. As much as he loved hockey we like to think Dad's biggest win was the decision to give it up and start a family in Vancouver. After graduating from UBC Harrison began his career at Vancouver Tech High School teaching PE and history and retired in 1983 as head of the counsellin­g department. He then enjoyed traveling and playing golf and tennis with Mom as members of the Jericho Tennis Club. They made many good friends and enjoyed a full life, married for almost 70 years. STOUCK (NEE QUICK), Mary-ann Sep. 10, 1941 - Apr. 4, 2020 With great sadness, we announce the passing of Mary-ann Stouck at her home in West Vancouver with her loving husband David, daughter Jordan (Scott), and son John at her side. She is also survived by her sister, Elinor, and granddaugh­ters Morgan and Teagan. Mary-ann completed a doctorate at the University of Toronto and taught Chaucer for 37 years at Simon Fraser University. Her edition of Medieval Saints became a standard text in the field and she is remembered fondly by her many students. Mary-ann was privileged to enjoy travel, film, and a wide circle of friends. But special was her love for animals and she requested memorial donations be sent to SAINTS, an animal rescue: https://www.canadahelp­ 12462/donation In loving memory of Gunnar I. Dziny June 19, 1922 - April 12, 2019 If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, we would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again. Love always, Moni and Peanut WATSON, Claire Doreen July 21, 1937 - April 3, 2020 It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our beautiful mother, grandmothe­r, wife and beloved friend Doreen. Doreen passed away peacefully after her short stay in Peace Arch Hospital surrounded by the love of her family. Doreen was a legal secretary for 25 years prior to retirement but first and foremost, she was a dedicated mother and grandmothe­r. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as Nana. In recent years she was always on the go traveling, meeting with friends, painting, presiding over bingo at Kent Street, tending to her tidy garden, baking goodies while always keeping an immaculate house. She made friends everywhere she went. She will be remembered for her sense of humor, determinat­ion, intellect and love of family and friends. She was the loving and devoted mother of Rob (Odette), Melanie (Pasquale) and adored grandmothe­r of Emilia, Lucia and Joseph. Predecease­d by her husband (Mel) of 50 years, her sister (Marlene), her brother (Lawrence), mother (Mary) and father (Gus). Mom, your love was a gift to all of us and you will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, celebrate mom by staying safe, holding on to your family/friends and loving deeply. As a family of boys we have fond memories of playing with and being coached by Dad. We could always rely on him for some fun which is something all of us inherited and hopefully have passed on to our children. Hass was known to speak his mind, like it or not, but as he grew older it was all about his love of family and there was rarely an occasion where Dad could make it through a speech without tearing up. He departed this world to join Mom on his birthday. And we can see them dancing now. We would like to thank the staff and residents of St Vincent's, Honoria Conway Assisted Living for helping make the last years of Harrison's life meaningful. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the St Paul's Hospital Foundation. William Ernest Insall In loving memory of July 9, 1929 - April 12, 2016 Those we love don’t go away.
