Chumm, John

CHUMM
John Chumm was born on August 20, 1931 in Sioux Lookout, Ontario and passed away suddenly on October 13, 2010 at the age of 79 years.
John grew up and worked in Sioux Lookout, Ontario as a CN callboy, a labourer for his father’s construction company and finally as an engineer for CN Railway. He and Renee, his 1st wife, had four children born there; Stephen, Susan, Tina and Wesley. He and his family moved across Canada to Winnipeg where he sold insurance and finally to Kamloops where his last child, Nancy, was born and raised. John settled in Kamloops as a CN Engineer and became an avid outdoorsman, hunter and trapper as well as other hobbies.
John was always a man full of life and good humour. He always had a joke or story for you as well as a big smile. He loved to cheer others up and was actively involved in improving himself daily with a healthy lifestyle full of exercise, nutrition and good living.
John was known by many as “Big John” because of his size, but it was his open, generous heart that made him great. He never stopped his quest of learning and even made a new friend in the last week of his life. Through his family, work and hobbies he made numerous, wonderful friends throughout his life. He was an Air Force Veteran and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, and was honoured on his retirement for 47 years of service, for the CN Railway. He was proud of this achievement.
John loved his children, step children, grandchildren and new great grandchildren. He loved both his wives with all his heart and enjoyed being a husband.
John will be lovingly remembered by his two ex-wives, Renee and Sharon, his children Stephen, Susan, Wesley, Tina (Garry), Nancy, Steve, Lori, Joe and Sandy; brother Joseph Chulumovich and sister Anne Childress (Marvin). He will be dearly loved and was proud of all his grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Stephen and Rose, his daughters Susan and Sandy, his brother Frank Chulumovich and sister Josephine Lange, and his granddaughter Brittany Plotikoff. He will be deeply missed by all – he was a great man with a lively zest for life.
Special thanks to Dr. Stinson and the staff at the Kamloops Hospice Home.
The Celebration of John’s life was held on Monday, October 18, 2010 in the Schoening Funeral Chapel, 513 Seymour Street.

Frame (nee Kelly), Shirley Marie

Shirley Marie (nee Kelly) Frame
1937-2010
Shirley was born September 12, 1937 in Cumberland General Hospital, the closest hospital to her family’s home in Bevan, BC. She was the second daughter to Jim and Elizabeth (Lil) Kelly and younger sister to Irene. It was while a toddler in Bevan that she first met Walter Frame, whom she later married.
Her days on Vancouver Island were not long, however. The Kellys moved to Vancouver to be closer to Lil’s family. Shirley became involved in the raising of show Maltese dogs with her grandparents, who owned Shirlene Kennels. Shirley’s Snow Flurry was a much beloved companion and a champion show dog.
As a talented artist, Shirley aspired to be a fashion designer but, on graduating from Vancouver Tech, she opted for teacher training at Vancouver Normal School. She met Walter again and married him in 1958. They had four children: Michelle, Stella, Avril and Kelly. She also had six grandchildren: Shelly, Kelly, Madeleine, Owen, Megan and Ryan and one great-grandchild, Carter.
Walter and Shirley lived all over British Columbia from Ocean Falls to Kamloops, Prince George, Kitimat, Mackenzie, Prince George again and back to Kamloops. Here, Shirley found real passion working with the Kinette Club. She served as President during her time with the Kamloops club. She also managed the Laura Secord Shop, owned her own chocolate shop Welch’s Candies, and later owned Shirley’s Gifts in the Canadian Inn.
In 1980, she moved with Walt and their two youngest children to Czechoslovakia (as it then was) where she learned to speak Slovak and had many adventures with her ex-pat colleagues exploring the country and its neighbours.
Shirley returned to Canada in 1982 when she became ill. She conquered the illness and went on to have another adventure living in Turkey. There, she learned to speak Turkish and explore a beautiful part of the world.
After Shirley and Walt were divorced, Shirley moved back to Vancouver. There she trained to be a realtor with Century 21. Shirley later joined Colliers International in their property management division where she remained until her retirement in 2002. She cherished her work and her colleagues and spoke often of them in the years that followed. Shirley moved to North Vancouver and finally to Kelowna in 2007.
The many health complications she had over the years conspired to defeat her determined spirit. After several illnesses, Shirley passed away on October 12, 2010. She was predeceased by her father (1972), her mother (1987), and her sister (1994).
Shirley is much missed by her children, grandchildren and friends but our memories are rich with the fullness of her life. There will be no formal service by request but there will be a wake for her on October 23, 2010 at 1:00 at 993 Canongate Cres. Kamloops, B.C.
Shirley received excellent, compassionate care from the staff of Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House. Donations in her memory may be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association in lieu of flowers.
There will be no formal service by request but there will be a Wake for her on October 23, 2010 at 1:00 at 993 Canongate Cres. Kamloops, B.C.

Sutton, Sharon Eloise

In Loving Memory Of
Sharon Eloise Sutton
1945 - 2010
After a long battle with cancer, Sharon peacefully passed away on October 12, 2010 with her husband and daughter by her side. She is survived and remembered by her loving husband Ronald Sutton, her son Shaun Sutton, her daughter Kelly Andres (son-in-law Brent Andres, grandson Devan Holdsworth, grandaughter Shealyn Andres), sisters: Carole Klyne and Vesta Doberstein along with their families, brothers: Howie Esche and Dale Esche and their families, her special friend Marilyn and many other cherished friends and family members.
Sharon was a licensed practical nurse before taking time off to be a devoted mother to her daughter and son. After being a stay at home mom she went back to work to be a home care worker. She had a very caring nature, which is why she chose these careers. Her main philosophy of life was to live, love and laugh. She loved to have a good time, but even more, she wanted everyone else to be having a better time. Sharon enjoyed many camping trips with great friends and loved to go to the curling club (not just to curl). Sharon will be deeply missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her and remembered for the amazing person she was.
A Celebration of Sharon’s life will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, October 23, 2010 at the McArthur Island Sports Centre Lounge, 1665 Island Parkway Drive. Kamloops. You are encouraged to bring your stories and wear your bright colors.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Sharon to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home at 72 Whiteshield Cres. S. Kamloops BC V2E 2S9.

Ray’s working career ranged from selling vehicles and big machinery to owning and operating logging and road building equipment. He had one of the first ‘cats’ on both the Mica Creek Dam site and Afton Copper Mine. After his health failed, he spent many years involved with organizing, coaching, and managing sports in North Kamloops, minor hockey house and rep teams, hockey schools, and the Bantam Tournament. He also coached the OLPH Aces for many years and was instrumental in seeing Little League baseball and softball become each their own entity. It was also his dream and diligence that saw the Brock Arena/Pool Complex become a reality.
Ray was predeceased by his son Marc (1978), his parents Napoleon and Antoinette Demers, and his sister, Pauline Tolhurst.
Prayers will be recited at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 14, 2010 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel at 285 Fortune Drive.
