DODD _ Jean (nee Lane) Surrounded by loving family, Jean peacefully passed
away on Remembrance Day, November 11, 2006 at Peace Arch Hospital. The
second child of Elizabeth ("Bessie" Sutherland) and James Lane, Esther Jean
Lane was born in Bashaw, Alberta on November 3, 1917. Jean lived with her
aunt and uncle in Edmonton to attend her last year of high school and after
graduation joined her family who had recently moved to Vancouver, B.C.
"Jeanie" married her "Herbie" on July 24, 1941 and immediately after the
reception the newlyweds traveled by train to Alberta so that Jean could meet
Herb's parents and then continued on to Saskatoon where Herb was stationed
with the Air Force. After another assignment in Arnprior, Ontario, Herb was
dispatched to England in 1943 and Jean returned to Vancouver, missing Herbie
terribly, but happily awaiting the arrival of their first child. The family
was finally reunited when Herb returned to Canada in September 1945 and met
his 22 month old son. Although it was hard to be separated by the war, Jean
always felt they shared a special bond through their letters and that she
was very lucky to have the companionship and love of her best friend through
almost 60 years of marriage. During these years they were joined by a
daughter and six well-loved grandchildren. Herb and Jean lovingly supported
each other during the sad loss due to cancer of their only son, Terry, on
May 19, 1996. At this time, Herb was also struggling with Parkinson's
disease and predeceased Jean on March 19, 2001. Terry's wife, Deirdre (Dee)
also succumbed to cancer on December 26, 2001. Jean's greatest joy was her
family and she will be sorely missed by her daughter, Sharon and son-in-law,
Andy Bacon and their children, Michael (Jill) and Andrea (Nick and
great-grandson, Scotty) and by Terry and Dee's children, Larena (Nathan),
Cameron, Douglas and Naomi. Although predeceased by her older brother Jim,
and younger brother, George, Jean is survived by her only sister, Mary Laura
Taylor-Smith and her family. Jeanie and "Laurie" always shared a very close
and loving friendship. We would like to say a special thank you to Dr. Tracy
Monk and Adele who became special friends in the many years they helped Jean
remain healthy and active. In March 2006, Jean moved to The Peninsula
Retirement Residence in White Rock and met several new friends. We wish she
could have had longer to enjoy this new stage of her life, but are so
thankful she had the opportunity to get to know so many interesting and
caring people - staff and residents. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the
Cancer Society or the Parkinson's Foundation (two charities Jean supported
in honour of lost loved ones) or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be
greatly appreciated. A Memorial Service will be held at Burquitlam Funeral
Home at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, November 25, 2006. We are sorry to say
good-bye, but this very special lady - Jean/Mom/Nanna/Great-Nanna - will
live on in our hearts.

morning of buying Christmas presents for Cheryl, his beloved partner of 14

was unexpected and our thanks to the kind strangers who offered assistance.
Dennis was a kind man, with a generous spirit, a warm heart and he will be
very much missed by Cheryl, Kyl, Shane and the rest of his extended family.

Dennis requested there will be no service but a viewing will take place on

LEITH _ Phillip Edward Meric "Trustee to the end" yet "press on
regardless"...... We are saddened at the sudden loss of Squadron Leader
Phillip Edward Meric Leith of West Vancouver who passed away peacefully at
Lions Gate Hospital on November 14th, 2006. Born in Toronto on June 19th,
1914 to Olga Renfrew Schwartz Leith and Thomas Geoffry Leith OBE, brother to
the late Thelma Wall. Educated at Wixenford (Ludgrove) and Eton, Phillip
later worked at the Royal Bank. During World War II as a Navigator in the
RCAF, he completed a full tour of 30 operations and was awarded a
Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) by King George VI in 1942. In 1944, after
spending the year as an Aide-de-camp to the Governor General, the Earl of
Athlone and Princess Alice at Rideau Hall in Ottawa, he wanted a second RCAF
tour and returned to Europe for the duration of the War. After the War,
Phillip received concurrent degrees in Agriculture and Commerce from UBC
followed up by a Masters in Agriculture from the U of A. Over the next 60
years, when not found in West Vancouver, Phillip worked his beloved farms in
Scotland. Proud of his life long bachelor status, Phillip held strong views
on many subjects. Passionate about the Christian faith, his family roots,
the UEL and the Christian British Israel World Federation, Phillip was an
animated storyteller with a great sense of humour. Frugal in his own
demands, Phillip was a very generous and charitable man. Always appreciating
nature's beauty, he loved to watch the birds, the changing seasons and his
Aberdeen Rose. Phillip will be sadly missed by friends and family including
his nieces Jane Nicolai and Susan Hoffman, nephews Richard and Thomas Wall
in South Africa, cousins Felix Meister of Vancouver Island, Angela Ritchie
and family of Two Mountains, Quebec, the Cox-Rogers family and extended
family in London, UK. Special thanks to Phillip's many caregivers for their
kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Lions Gate
