Tedder, Jean


On August 4, Mom lost her fight with Alzheimer’s Disease, passing away peacefully at age 89. She was born to William and Jeannie Ramsay on December 22, 1918 in Nelson, BC. She is survived by sons Bruce and Ralph, brother in law Joe (Ina) Tedder, nieces Joan Goode and Marjorie Alfawicki, nephews Bill Ramsay, Laurie and Corey Tedder, as well as many great nieces and nephews throughout BC, Alberta and Scotland.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, husband Brian (2000), sister Belle and brother Charles, and many in laws, nieces and nephews.
As a teenager in Nelson, running track was her passion, and at one point she held the Canadian record for the 100 yard dash. Injuries cost her the chance to represent Canada internationally and eventually forced her to quit.
In 1939 the family moved from Williams Lake to Kamloops, where she worked a few years in the government buildings. Mom and Dad were married in Kamloops on June 1, 1944, and from that point on she was a homemaker. They built one of the first homes in Valleyview, where she lived until 2003. In their 27+ great years of retirement, she enjoyed playing tennis, gardening, walking daily and supporting her sons.
We will miss her dearly, but know she has gone to a better place. She was tired of the fight and decided it was time to rejoin Dad and the rest.
Special thanks to the staff at Overlander’s South Park Wing, your love and caring made Mom comfortable for the 3 ½ years she was there. Thanks also to Dr. Shirley Sze for her many years of care.
A Memorial Service will be held in the Schoening Funeral Chapel on Saturday, August 9, 2008 at 1:00 p.m.
Should friends desire, donations to Overlander Extended Care Hospital, 953 Southill Street, Kamloops, BC V2B 7Z9 in memory of Mom would be greatly appreciated.

Hilton, Margaret

November 23, 1909 – August 3, 2008

Our Darling, Aunt Margaret Hilton passed away peacefully on August 3, 2008 in Royal Inland Hospital, at the age of 98. She enjoyed reasonably good physical and mental health in her last years, until a few days ago her advancing age took its toll on her total health. Margaret leaves to cherish her memory, her nephews Bill (Helen) Pratt, Brian (Donna) Bogetti, Alan (Ruth) Bogetti, Fred (Vi) Hilton, niece Sheila (Van) Smith all from Kamloops, BC, and niece Shirley Hamilton (Al Burke) from Winnipeg, MB, niece Mabel Cawdell of Surrey, BC, sister in law Wilma Bogetti at Berwick on the Park, sister in law Alice Bogetti at the Ponderosa Lodge, many great nieces and nephews as well as a wealth of truly wonderful friends, and her extended family at The Shores Retirement Residence.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband Bill of 56 years, her parents, brothers Jack and Frank and sister Annie.
Margaret was born in Cherasco, Italy, immigrated to the United States, with her Father and Mother and sister Annie; when she was just six months old. After a short stay in the United States, while living in Seattle, Margaret’s Father heard of homestead land in Robbins Range in Canada. They moved here to work the homestead land in 1912. Her Father and neighbouring farmers constructed a log home for the family and that home now sits proudly on display at Hat Creek Ranch. Margaret attended school in the Robbins Range School House that is currently situated in the school yard of Pine Ridge Elementary.
Margaret met and married Bill Hilton, a CNR employee in June of 1938, and they had many wonderful years together until his death in 1994. Together they worked tirelessly at the Wild Life Park, spending most of their summer days out there running the Wild Life Train. They also spent many hours with the CNR Pensioners, Old Age Pensioners, bowling, going to the Heritage House and dancing and playing cards, gardening, many picnics in the park, playing Bocce Ball and Mini Golf. What a great card player she was, as recent as February 25, 2008, won the Crib Tournament at the Shores.
Auntie Margaret always was optimistic, never criticized anyone, never complained, and always said its okay to do whatever makes you happy and Auntie you have made a lot of people happy, with your spaghetti, gnocchi and ravioli dinners of home made pasta and sauce made from your home grown tomatoes. But, best of all, we are proud that you belonged to us.
Thank you, to the staff at the Shores for their kindness, and care given to Margaret, her last days there. Also to all of the Ambulance Attendants, Emergency Staff, and Staff, Nurses and Doctors on 6N, for the care given in her last moments of life.
In lieu of flowers, we would ask you to instead, make a donation in her memory to Royal Inland Hospital Foundation “General Equipment Fund’, 311 Columbia Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2T1 or Kamloops Wildlife Park, 9077 Dallas Drive, Kamloops, BC V2C 6V1 in memory of both Bill and Margaret Hilton, for the many years of dedication and joy they had from being part of what it is today.

Barnett, Helen Irene

JULY 1, 1951 - JULY 31, 2008

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, niece, and friend. Helen passed away July 31, following a short fight against lung cancer. She is survived by her daughters Sherry-Ann (Frank) Weber of Sylvan Lake, Teresa (Josh) Spruyt of Kamloops and Felisha (Graham) Height of Victoria; grandchildren Elizabeth, Deborah, Faith, Kaden, Electra, and Rylend; mother Millicent Bresnahan; sister Joanne; brothers Boyd (Lynn), Ron (Jane), and Wayne. Aunt Bev and Uncle George (Johnson) as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and several close friends - Ruby, Mike, Marnie, Sheila, Nel and many others. Helen was predeceased by her father James Bresnahan in 2004.
Helen was born in Prince George on Canada Day and always enjoyed the celebrations at Riverside Park. Helen would joke that she was extra special because she got fireworks on her birthday. Growing up Helen lived in several places through out BC; however she chose to settle in Kamloops to raise her daughters. Helen moved to Alberta in 2001 but her heart was always in Kamloops and she was in the process of moving back when she was diagnosed. She began treatments in Edmonton but was able to return to Kamloops to be closer to her family and close friends for what she thought would be further treatments.
During Helen’s life she worked as an accountant and was looking forward to returning to work at Eyes International after she finished treatments. Helen enjoyed every minute she got to spend with her grandchildren, and took great satisfaction in watching the payback her daughters received for all the grey hairs they gave her while they were growing up. Helen was very proud of her grandchildren and was often caught bragging of their successes, whether it was their grades or the awesome hockey game they played. She truly was an amazing grandmother.
Friends are invited to join the family in an open house on Saturday, August 9, from 2 till 4 at 512 Blanche St. The family would like to express a special thank you to Dr. Schumacher, Dr. Michaud, the nurses in the step down unit, and the entire staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home.

Ebl, Frank Charles

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Frank Charles Ebl of Knutsford, BC on July 29, 2008 at the age of 83. He is predeceased by his mother and father, Frank and Annie Ebl and his brother Harry Ebl. Frank was the eldest of five brothers, Joe, Harry, Ed and George. He is also survived by his nephews and their families.
Frank served with the 1st Canadian parachute Battalion in WWII. He was stationed in England and upon returning home after the war, he moved to BC. He then worked for Palm Dairies for a few years. Frank then went to work for Joe Frolek in the logging industry on Hull Mountain and various other areas. Eventually all the five brothers were working in the same logging outfit. Hunting and fishing was a way of life for them, and we have enjoyed hearing the many stories of “the big one that didn’t get away.”
Everyone who knew Frank was aware of his passion and skill for bowling. Frank also busied himself in the winter months with his creative woodworking projects; from his famous whirlybirds, to his baskets, flower pots and wooden games. Another passion was his gardening, which he always shared his harvest with friends, neighbours and family. He would arrive in Alberta every summer with a cooler of his frozen berries and apricots. Frank won many ribbons for his garden produce that he would enter at the Knutsford Fall Fair. He was so proud of the trees he had grown in his yard over the years and turned his place into a little green oasis. Frank always enjoyed having coffee and shootin the breeze with his good friends and neighbours. He loved to chat.
Frank will always be remembered as a thoughtful and kind-hearted person. Always willing to help out with anything. We love him and will miss him always. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the nurses and Dr. Birdi at the Royal Inland Hospital for your kindness, caring and compassion you showed Frank. Thank you.
Friends and family are invited to get together for a Celebration of Frank’s life at the Knutsford Community Hall on Saturday, August 23, 2008 at 1:00 p.m.
