Beauchesne, Saylah Michele
BEAUCHESNE, Saylah Michele Our third daughter, Saylah Michele, was stillborn
at 3:52 pm on Sunday, May 15, 2005. She was born in silence we will never
hear her cry. Although she has not lived or breathed outside her mother's
womb, she is greatly missed and greatly loved already. The depth of our love
for her and the depth of pain we feel at her loss are more than words can
express. We are in the process of working through our grief and the pain of
letting go of the dreams the future held for this beautiful, sweet child.
Saylah will be missed by her Mom & Dad, Trysta and Bud, her sisters, Sophie
and Ella, her Papa, Bob Chong, her Nana and Gramps, Karen & Stephen Davis,
her Grandpa and Grandma, Hector & Donna Beauchesne, her great grandmothers,
and her many aunts, uncles, and cousins. We want to thank our family, Kim
Millar-Lewis, Madeleine, our church families, and the many friends and
neighbours for loving and supporting us through this difficult time. We
appreciate your thoughts and your prayers. We take comfort in knowing that
Saylah is now dancing with our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. We love you
Saylah and we will miss you... until we meet again. 94349

Carr, William James
CARR, William James April 19, 1920 May 31, 2005 Died peacefully at home, on
his own terms and in his own time, superb intelligence, dignity and sense of
humour intact. He joined his beloved wife, Elsie, who predeceased him in
2001, on what would have been their 65th wedding anniversary, and his only
son, William James Carr, Jr., who died on February 29 of this year. He is
survived by his daughters, Diane, Patricia (Joseph R.) Kozsan, and Michelle;
daughter-inlaw, Denise; grandchildren, Ronald (Tomiko) Kozsan, Lisa Davies,
and Alan (Tracy) and James Carr; and great-grandchildren, Derek and Keith
Carr and Zoey and Drake Poulsen. He is also survived by his brother, Frank,
and sisters, Peggy O'Sullivan, Dorothy Crover, Eileen Ramsay and Betty
Mueller and a multitude of adoring nieces and nephews and their children.
Born in Preston, Lancs, England, Bill grew up in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
Enlisting in the Canadian Army on the day that war was declared in 1939, he
served overseas with the Canadian Infantry Corps. He returned to Canada for
officer's training in 1943, followed immediately by his warbride wife and
two infant daughters, and was eventually posted to Terrace, B.C. as a
Lieutenant attached to the 1st Battalion of the Prince Albert Volunteers. He
finished the War on the west coast of Vancouver Island, where he continued
to live in Port Alberni for a number of years. Bill exemplified the
philosophy of community service he embraced his entire life, applying his
considerable leadership skills to causes near and dear to his big heart,
whether it was in politics, church life, or community advocacy, both at home
and in developing countries. In the 1960s, his experience in the early
credit union movement in B.C. took him to Peru where he founded a number of
successful small and large community-based lending organizations and served
on the country's National Board of Cooperatives. One of them, still in
existence, boasts over 70,000 members. In their "retirement" years, Bill and
Elsie continued to work with the young and the poor in Sinaloa, Mexico.
Thanks to Dr. Burns Morrison for 40 years of care, Dr. D. Cuthbert, and the
MAP nurses at Royal Jubilee. Special thanks to Lean on Me Health Care
Services, the Community Health Nurses, the Palliative Response Team of
Victoria Hospice, and the management, staff and residents of the Victorian
on Feltham, all of whom assisted our father to maintain his conscious and
humorous approach to his own illness and death. Funeral Mass will take place
at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 4040 Nelthorpe, Victoria on Wednesday, June
8 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Victoria Hospice,
1952 Bay Street, Victoria, B.C., V8R 1J8. 95038
