McRORIE _ Kenneth Lawrence McRorie, P.Eng., passed away peacefully in his
97th year, surrounded by family, on December 27, 2006 at Capilano Care
Centre, West Vancouver, BC. Ken is survived by daughters Anne and Kathy, of

daughter-in-law Marie; and great grandchildren Connor, Ceilidh, Kimberley,

The firstborn of six children, Ken is also survived by brother Eric and
sisters Inez and Kay. He is predeceased by brother Glen (1983) and sister
Doris (2005). Ken was born July 14, 1909 in New Warren, SK and was raised in
Avonlea, SK. He attended the University of Saskatchewan and helped run the
family store during the Great Depression. Ken married Jessie McDougall in
1933, and in 1940 they moved to the mining communities of Metachewan and
Atikokan, ON, where Ken spent over twenty-three years in the mining industry
most of it as the Underground Superintendent at Steep Rock Iron Mines. In
1963, Ken moved to Campbell River, BC and then to the metro-Vancouver area,
where he worked as a Consulting Engineer for Wright Engineering until
retiring in 1981. Work took him through Scandinavia, the former Soviet
Union, North Africa, South America and the Philippines. Ken's most memorable
vacation was a six-week camping trip across Canada, which he and Jessie took
with daughter Anne and her family in the summer of 1977. Active in the
United Church for his entire life, Ken was also an avid sportsman, musician
and gentleman of the Masonic Lodge who enjoyed socializing with friends and
family over music, a card game, a cup of coffee, or a piece of pie. His love
of family and knowledge of history were obvious to his family and friends --
as were his passions for engineering, economics and politics. Many thanks to
the staff of Capilano Care Centre who have provided excellent care,
companionship and friendship to Ken over the past fourteen years. Ken's
family appreciate all that you did for he and Jessie during their stay
there. A memorial service will be held at West Vancouver United Church, 2062
Esquimalt Avenue, on Friday, January 5, 2007 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of

Medicine. He went on to obtain his medical degree in 1972 and his fellowship
in internal medicine in 1977. Through his extensive knowledge of both
clinical pharmacology and internal medicine, he became a leading expert at
diagnosing and treating pain, a practice to which he devoted himself at

ZAPF _ Anna Louise Our beloved mother, Anna Louise Zapf nee Barker, passed
away on January 1, 2007. Anna was a child of the Canadian prairies. The
third eldest of nine children, she was born on June 28, 1924 in Porcupine
Valley, Montana, which possessed the nearest hospital to Killdeer,
Saskatchewan where she grew up within an extended family. In 1943, Anna
entered the School of Nursing at the Regina General Hospital, graduating in
1946 as a registered nurse (R.N.). In her early twenties following
graduation, she nursed for three years in Red Cross outpost hospitals in
Carragana and Loon Lake, Saskatchewan--a testament to the adventurous spirit
and courage that Anna possessed all of her life. At the Loon Lake Hospital
in Northern Saskatchewan, she treated Norman Robert Zapf. The handsome
university student and the beautiful young nurse fell in love. Anna and Norm
were married on December 28, 1948 in Loon Lake and traveled by sleigh to
Killdeer for a second celebration with the Barker family. In 1949, Anna and
Norm moved to British Columbia and settled in Victoria. For more than half a
century they were involved in the local community: raising a young family,
they contributed to their childrens schools; they participated in developing
their neighbourhood park, Playfair; they were active in First United Church,
were avid curlers and bridge players, and caring and loyal friends. Anna's
merry heart was well-known to all who knew her but especially to her
children. She took time with us and later with her grandchildren to play and
to experience the wonder of the world through a child's eyes. Her artistic
gift was in evidence everywhere in our family home: she was a superb
seamstress, gardener, flower arranger, and later in her life, painter. Her
culinary talent was legendary. Anna and Norm instilled an incomparable
Saskatchewan hospitality in our home, where a pot of coffee was always on
the stove for friends and family who frequently dropped by, and rooms
resounded with laughter and conversation. Anna leaves her loving husband of
fifty-eight years, Norman Robert; five children, Carolyn Zapf, Donna Zapf,
Margery Zapf-Gilje, Douglas Zapf, and Linda Zapf Suppiah; eight
grandchildren, Michelle, Anne-Marie, and Erik Zapf-Bélanger, Leif, Evin, and
Emma Zapf-Gilje, and Serina and Joshua Zapf; daughter-in-law, Philippa Zapf
and sons-in-law, Marc Bélanger, Reidar Zapf-Gilje, and Ananthan Suppiah; as
well as her sisters, Edith Johnson, Doris Jenkins, Helen Weissenborn, and
Jean Blair; and her brother, Marvin Barker. We adored her. She was wise and
joyous, an immeasurable gift to everyone whose life she touched. She was our
teacher in the paths of love; she lives on in our hearts. A memorial service
