~ McTaggart ~ Elizabeth (Betty) Drysdale, nee Blyth, born March 28, 1926 in
Edinburgh, Scotland, passed away peacefully on September 27. Beloved wife of
the late John McTaggart, she will be forever loved and deeply missed by her
children Fiona (Lee), Colin (Katie and Sam), Keith, and Wendy (Hugh),
grandchildren Joanne, Amy, Heather, Greg, Geoff, Ben, Holly, Piper, and
great-grandchildren Katie and Christopher. Betty's indomitable spirit and
sense of adventure shone through in all she did. She began singing as a
child and continued to entertain with song and her great sense of humour
throughout her life. Betty sang professionally in Great Britain and
continued her career after immigrating to Canada in 1957. During WWII, she
served in the Land Army and as a Sergeant in the ATS, driving ambulances and
becoming a star singer in troop entertainment shows. Betty was proud of
being the first singer to broadcast live to Allied Forces from Berlin after
occupation. After leaving professional singing to raise her family, Betty
went on to a variety of successful careers fields including switchboard
operator, cosmetician, butcher's assistant and secretary. She was a
life-long member of the Royal Canadian Legion and served on the executive of
the FSNA, and volunteered in many other community organizations. Betty loved
being surrounded by her family and her dogs. She cared deeply for her
children, grandchildren, and greatgrandchildren, always keeping in touch and
doing anything she could to help. Her giving nature ensured that family and
friends, new and old, were welcome in her home. Battling acute arthritis for
over 25 years, Betty never complained and was always `up for a challenge'.
Her courage in facing adversity will continue to be a beacon to all who knew
her. May we honour her memory in the way we live our lives. We love you Mum.

KARLA WAGNER nee Killat August 9, 1950 September 27, 2005 Our sweet Karla
left us so suddenly, much before her time. Karla was born in West Berlin to
Rudi and Brigitte Killat. She was 10 months old when they escaped to East
Berlin and when she was four years old the Killats immigrated to Canada,
leaving behind all their family and friends. They eventually settled in
Regina where Karla went to school and on to university to study education.
Karla taught school for several years in Alberta before moving to Vancouver,
where she continued teaching while taking music courses in the evening at
UBC. Karla's passion for music reflected in her singing and her piano. She
taught music to her many "children" and wrote and produced plays and
musicals for them to perform at concerts an on the Vancouver Carole ships at
Christmas. They loved their "Mrs Wagner". She was a very creative person,
always making and doing things for everybody. Karla radiated sunshine in her
smiles and made you feel that you were very special to her. She loved to
golf and go on those "Great Walks" in Tahsis and Lake Cowichan with her mom.
Karla's mom was her best friend and together they travelled back to their
native homeland in 2003, re-uniting with family and friends and having the
time of their lives. Left broken hearted are her parents Brigitte and Rudi,
he sister Pam and brotherin-law Fred, partner Roger, special friend Debbie
in Vancouver, her Tantes and Onkels and cousins in Germany and her many
wonderful friends whom she cherished. Karla affected many lives and will
forever remain in our hearts. At Karla's request, there will be no service.
Flowers are gratefully declined but donations can be made to the Canadian

Ian SMITH Born in Streatham, London, England in 1935, Ian passed away
suddenly in Nanaimo Friday, September 30, nine days short of his 70th
birthday. Ian spent his youth in London. He was an outstanding athlete,
captaining his school cricket and soccer teams. After performing his
mandatory military service, he graduated from the University College of
London in 1960. It was during his university years in London that Ian was
introduced to the exciting new sounds of bebop, and his life long enthusiasm
for many types of jazz was born. He met Claire at the University of Leeds
where they were both did their teacher training, and they were married in
1963. They ventured to Canada a short while later, settling first in
Winnipeg where Louise was born in 1964 and Peter in 1966. They moved to
Nanaimo in 1966 where Ian began his long career at NDSS teaching mainly
English. He was very active in the life of the school, and was well liked by
staff and students. He developed a strong debating program in the school
district along with the long running Ravenhurst debating tournament. He
coached and refereed school and youth soccer, helped re-establish a Nanaimo
cricket team in the early 70's, and participated in a number of Nanaimo
Theatre Group productions both on and off stage. After retiring from John
Barsby in 1997, he continued to coach and organize debating at a number of
Nanaimo schools. Ian loved athletics, attested by his daily bicycle
commutes, his organizing of youth soccer referees, and the umpiring of the
occasional cricket game. As president of the Vancouver Island International
Children's Festival, he was instrumental in its founding and ongoing
success. He also sat on the boards of numerous Nanaimo charities, and
canvassed regularly for the NDP. Ian maintained a strong belief in social
justice through-out his life. He found the time to wash dishes for the 7-10
Club's early morning soup kitchen two, three and sometimes four times a
week. Ian also never lost his passion for the arts. He collected records of
his beloved jazz for his entire adult life. He regularly attended theatre
and concerts events in Nanaimo, Victoria, and Vancouver. And in recent years
he had taken on the task of directing a number of challenging productions
with the NTG and had plans to direct this coming season. Ian also enjoyed
traveling, especially with close friends Marjorie and Steve. He will be
sadly missed by Louise and Peter, former wife Claire, son-inlaw Barry,
daughter-in-law Michelle, grandchildren Andhra, Desmond, and Deven, brother
Geoffrey, sister Brenda and his many friends and colleagues. But we will
continue to find inspiration in this man who took great pleasure in helping
others live their lives to the fullest. A memorial will be held at 4pm,

CARL ROSS PERCY CRITES Born November 7, 1931 at Osnabruck Township, Ontario,
passed away peacefully on September 29, 2005 with wife, Anna; son, Grant and
his best friend of 40+ years, Don MacGillivray at his side. He was
predeceased by father, William Ernest Crites; mother, Nora; brothers,
Sterling, Keith, Wilson and son, Tim. He is survived by sisters: Pauline,
Jean, Violet, Muriel and Dawn; brothers, Maurice and Elwood; daughters,
Gail, Beverly; sons: Craig, Randy, Grant, Scott, Glenn; grandchildren: Tim,
Nicole, Tony, Greg, Emily, Anna, Alec, Laurie, Christina, Natalie; four
greatgrandchildren and wife, Anna. Carl went out on his own from the family
at age 11 working at various jobs. When he was old enough he travelled the
world as a seaman with the Merchant Marines for a few years until returning
to his love, mechanicing (he called it). He maintained machinery throughout
the Yukon, N.W.T. and the northern most portions of Ontario, Alberta and
British Columbia before semi-retiring here in Port Alberni. Those of us that
knew him never tired of hearing about his escapades that almost always
concerned fixing something in the frozen or muddy north country. Carl's life
personified enthusiasm, perseverance, hard work and youth. He never grew old
and had years of "life" left in him when he passed on too soon. Carl
requested that he be cremated with no service in keeping with his "keep it
simple" attitude. The family wishes to thank all those friends who've sent
flowers to date. Anna's home is full of your thoughtfulness. In lieu of
flowers, may we ask that if desired, donations be made in Carl's name to the
W.C.G.H. Foundation re: Cat Scan Fund, 3949 Port Alberni Hwy., Port Alberni,
B.C. V9Y 4S1 in the hopes that one day cat scan equipment can be purchased
for the local hospital. 20134

Barbara "Judy" Baker Sadly and suddenly, Judy passed away peacefully in her
sleep in the early morning of October 1st, 2005 following a day of visits
from her many friends and an evening spent with her husband and daughter.
She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Jack Baker, her daughter Susan
Baker and her grandchildren Jonathon and Olivia. Born in Leeds, Yorkshire,
England in 1928, Judy immigrated to Canada with her husband in 1954. After
three cold Manitoba winters they settled in Calgary to start a family. Judy
loved her life as a mother and homemaker and helped her husband in various
business ventures. The start of a new marine business took them east to Port
Credit in 1968 where they remained until their retirement to Nanaimo in
1989. Judy was extremely close to her only child Susan Baker and doted on
her two grandchildren Jonathon Chapple and Olivia Haller (all of Toronto),
who knew her as "Nanny". Judy never veered from her English roots and made
regular pilgrimages home to be with her family there. In the last number of
years she lost her own mother, her mother-in-law and four of her nine
brothers and sisters. She is survived by her sisters Christine and Margaret,
brothers Jeffrey, David and Graham and many nieces and nephews spread across
Australia, Canada and England. She was also very close to her sister-in-law
Peggy and nephew Christopher in England. Judy showed signs of Alzheimer's
disease as early as 2001 but her decline was very slow. She retained her
cheerful attitude and was able to put on a brave face and remain active in
Nanaimo's Gyro organization. She still remembered friends when they visited
but was frustrated with her memory loss. Having witnessed her own mother's
long and painful battle with the disease, the family feels that when she
became ill just a couple of weeks ago, Judy chose not to go to battle,
preferring to bow out gracefully and with dignity. Her loving and gentle
manner, big smile and sunny disposition will be greatly missed by all her
family and friends. A Funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Thursday,
October 6th, 2005 at Sands Funeral Chapel, One Newcastle Avenue, Nanaimo.
There will be a celebration of Judy's life to follow at her home. In lieu of
flowers, for those so desiring, donations in memory of Judy, may be made to
the Alzheimer's Society. Sands ~ Nanaimo 20162

Cole William COSTELLO 1985 2005 It is with the deepest sorrow that our
family announces the unexplainable passing of our beloved son and brother,
Cole William Costello, (July 23, 1985 September 25, 2005). Cole was a kind,
gentle and extremely talented young man with a future that held no
boundaries. He had recently graduated from BCIT and was to start his career
as a steel fabricator. Cole looked forward to any new adventure.
Unfortunately the recent adventure he took upon himself left behind his mom
and dad, Pat and Earl, his brother Joe, his future sister-in-law Jenilee,
his grandmas Dorothy and Margery, his uncles Tom, Don and Al, his aunts Jan
and Cathy and his cousins Ryan, Kristy and Michael. Even though Cole left us
he will always have our eternal love. Cole held the highest expectations for
himself but at the same time gave encouragement to those of us whose goals
were not set as high. Cole demanded a lot from himself and when he felt he
was not living up to his own expectations and not wanting to disappoint the
ones he loved he chose to make the pain go away. Cole's family would love
for you to join us in a celebration of his life at Sunnydale Golf Course at
3:00 on Tuesday, October 11th, 5291 North Island Highway, Courtenay. If you
have any photos or stories to tell please bring them with you. In lieu of
flowers, donations may be made to The Comox Valley Hospice Society. 20198

WEAVER, Dominique Catherine: Dominique Catherine Weaver suddenly and most
sadly passed away on September 26, 2005. The beloved wife of Grant, mother
of Matthew, daughter of Mme. Yalonde Houde and former Ambassador
Francois-Xavier Houde (deceased) (Montreal), sister of Pascale, Chantal,
Marie-France, Jean Francois, Denys and Michele Houde, daughter-in-law of
Mrs. Helen Weaver and Dr. Kenneth Weaver (deceased) (Port Alberni),
sister-in-law of Nancy Blair (Vancouver), aunt, teacher, and friend of many.
Born September 25, 1957, Dominique was an exotic flower of great beauty, raw
energy and spicy perfume. A clever linguist, Dominique taught Spanish to the
girls of York House School for many years, imparting to them not only
Spanish vocabulary and grammar, but also her love of Latin language and
culture. She had great fashion style and was a superb athlete and
sportswoman who enjoyed the thrill of physical challenge. Dominique pushed
herself hard to hit the high notes in her choir, to perfect the most
difficult steps of the Tango, to make the slam in tennis, and to open
herself to the greatest gift of all, self love. Latterly, she struggled hard
to right her ship and centre herself in calm waters, and strove for the
peace that comes to some, but forever eludes others. She will be deeply
missed. Dominique came from love now her soul is free to return to
unconditional love. Funeral service and Church reception to be held Tuesday,
October 4 at 2:30 p.m. at Shaughnessy Heights United Church, 1550 West 33rd
Avenue, Vancouver, with a gathering at the Family home to follow. For those
who wish to sign an online book of condolences, please go to `Obituaries' at

Salvation Army. Arrangements entrusted to Kearney Funeral Home: 604-736-0268
