It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden and tragic passing
of Frank.

mother, and grandparents.
Frank was born November 20, 1960 in Sydney, Australia. While he was a young
boy, he came to Canada with his parents and lived the rest of his life in
British Columbia mainly on the Coast including the Queen Charlotte Islands.
At an early age of 15, he spent summers with his dad in the logging industry
where he began his love for the woods. After graduating from high school,
Frank went on to BCIT and received his Diploma of Technology in Forest
Resources. Frank was a driller/blaster by trade, however he had mastered
several other jobs as well. There wasn't much that Frank couldn't do. Frank
enjoyed traveling with his wife and son, taking in Canuck hockey games,
spending many enjoyable days fishing for salmon during the summer and when
he could, hunting n Clearwater for Moose. He had a great love for the
outdoors whether it be fishing, or hunting. Frank was a prince of a man -
and was admired by many. His gentle and giving spirit will be missed.

Winifred Pearl
March 3, 1909 ~
January 25, 2007
Our family celebrates the wonderful life of our Great-Grandma, Grandma, Mom,
Auntie and Friend, Winn, who lived an ADVENTUROUS 98 YEARS!! She passed away
peacefully in her sleep at Yucalta Lodge in Campbell River with her devoted
children Maggie and Bob at her side.
Winnie was born in Neepawa Manitoba in the year 1909. As a young child her
family moved to Turner Bay on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Later, in
Blaine Washington, 1923, she met and fell in love with her future husband,
Reo Alexander Prendergast. Reo and Winn married in 1925 and together they
went on to pioneer the Pacific West Coast logging industry. Reo cut the
trees and Winn fed all the hungry boys in camp! They brought up their 3
children, Les, Margaret (Maggie) and Bob in logging camps all along the
coast of Vancouver Island.
In 1957, after many years of hard work, Reo and Winn retired and bought
their dream home on the bank of the Campbell River and lived there the rest
of their lives. They were beloved members of the Campbell River community.
Winn had the most beautiful garden in town and together she and Reo enjoyed
vacationing in Hawaii as well as traveling the open road in their motor home
across Canada and the US.
Winnie was a creative soul, a voracious reader and writer, an accomplished
seamstress, an amazing and loving cook, a member of the Eagles and a student
of personal development and growth. She studied all religions and was in a
constant quest to find the meaning of life.
Winn was predeceased by her husband of 75 years, Reo, her eldest son Leslie
and his wife Pat, her sister-in-law, Jean Turner, Jean's daughter (Winn's
niece) Rosalie Turner, and her grandchildren, Danny Prendergast and Janice
Simmons. Her brother, Bob Turner, her daughter, Maggie and her youngest son,
Bob and his wife Rosemary survive her. She is also survived by a huge family
of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great nieces and
nephews, cousins and many, many, many loving friends, all of whom will miss
her sweet face and indomitable spirit.
We want to extend a special, heartfelt thank you to the incredible staff of
Yucalta Lodge as well as the many home care ladies that brought sunshine
daily to Winn's life. Words cannot express how lovingly cherished and cared
for they made Winn feel during her time of need.
We would like to extend an invitation to relatives, friends and all, as we
celebrate Winifred's life at a memorial in her honor. It will be held at
Yucalta Lodge February 25th at 2:00p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in
memory of Winifred can be designated to Yucalta Lodge in care of Campbell
River Hospital Foundation, 381 2nd Avenue, Campbell River BC V9W 3V1.
