BOYCHUK - William (Bill) Born December 24, 1920 in Kenora, Ontario,

Survived by his loving wife Peggy after 63 years of marriage,
daughters Marilyn Kunkel, Marguerite Boychuk, Eileen (Frank) Tate, son
Dave (Kathi) Boychuk and his grandchildren Darren, Serena, Taylor, and
Trevor. William (Bill) was a WWII veteran who fought in the great
Canadian Battle of Ortona, Italy in 1943 and later met his war bride,
Peggy while stationed in England. Bill and Peggy made their home in
Greater Vancouver where they raised their family and Bill worked 34
years for Western Canada Steel. Bill was a kind and gentle man at
heart who loved the outdoors and all things living. Bill had the
spirit and enthusiasm of an adventurer and hiked the West Coast Trail
at 55 years of age and the famous Chilkoot Trail in the Yukon at the
young age of 61. Bill also loved the Okanagan area of British Columbia
and spent many years vacationing there with his family. Bill will be
remembered by many for his infectious laugh and great sense of humour
which filled his wonderful and long life. Bill was a true soldier to
the end who with great commitment and sacrifice became a selfless
caregiver to his soul mate Peggy as she battles cancer that started in
1993. Bill wished to die at home with his loving wife after his own
short battle with cancer. The family would like to thank Dr. Tom
Martin for his years of care and support. There will be no formal
service. We love you, Dad, and we will all miss you. "Rest in Peace"
BOYCHUK - Peggy (nee Taylor) Born April 19, 1920 in London, England,
passed away peacefully at her home in Ladner, BC, October 27, 2008.
Survived by daughters Marilyn Kunkel, Marguerite Boychuk, Eileen
(Frank) Tate, son Dave (Kathi) Boychuk and her grandchildren Darren,
Serena, Taylor and Trevor. Peggy grew up in Fenstanton, England where
she was an accomplished milliner and seamstress. She moved to London
just before WWII and trained as a machinist to support the war effort.
During WWII Peggy met and married the love of her life Bill Boychuk
from Canada and became one of the famous Canadian war brides. They set
up home and raised their family in Greater Vancouver. Peggy had
enduring strength and this showed in her commitment to her husband and
family through 63 years of marriage. She had diverse interests that
included carpentry, gardening, a home alteration business, bowling and
a few years as treasurer for scouting. She also spent many years as a
caregiver for her mother. Peggy was inspirational in her love for
animals, the environment and her four children. Peggy also loved the
Okanagan and especially Osoyoos, BC where she and Bill spent many
vacations with their family. Peggy was diagnosed with cancer in 1993
and with great strength and determination beat the disease for many
years, but it took a lot out of her. Her loving husband, Bill cared
for her throughout, until July 2008 when he had to fight his own
battle with cancer. With determined sacrifice by her daughters, Peggy
was able to pass away at home in peace after losing her own battle
with cancer. She wanted to be with her soul mate and loving husband
Bill and passed away three days after his death. "They will forever be
together". The family would like to thank Fraser Health Home Care
Nurses and Dr. Tom Martin for their compassionate care and support.
There will be no formal service. You were the best Mom and we will all
miss you.

Audrey Anne Stockwell Peacefully on October 27, 2008. Audrey went home
to be with her Lord and to be reunited with Bligh, her loving husband
of 58 years. Audrey is survived by her sister Thelma Boles of Ottawa,
her brother Byron Woods of Kelowna, her niece Colleen Thornton and
nephew Terry Patrick of Nepean and nephew Darryl Woods of Kanata.
Audrey was born in Rupert, Quebec on September 5, 1923. She had a
strong faith that carried her through decades of struggle with her own
stamina and health. Her life was a mosaic of contrast - a very private
person yet energized by being with people, an independent spirit,
creative, insightful. On August 29 even as her own strength was
failing, she delighted in the support of family and friends at Bligh's
memorial service. She wanted to thank Thelma, Sue, Dorothy, Sharon,
Robbie, and Cindy for their beautiful support in recent days. Her deep
gratitude extended as well to the wonderful support of the palliative
care team and volunteers at Queens Park Hospital and Crossroads
Hospice. A memorial service will be held at Eagle Ridge Bible
Fellowship in Coquitlam. In lieu of flowers, Audrey has requested
donations be made to International Teams Mission in support of Cindy
Luu and Medical Missions in support of the Kaarsgards.
