GOTT, Janet Maxine (nee Holler) Was born on May 26, 1924 in Saskatoon,
Saskatchewan to Ross and Minetta Holler. She and her twin sister Margaret
and older brother Don travelled by horse and buggy to school in Gunworth,
Saskatchewan. The family moved to Saskatoon where all of the children
completed their high schooling, including little sister Joan. With the start
of the war the three older children answered the call to help Canada in the
war effort. Don went to the Airforce, Margaret to the Army and Maxine to
Fort William to work in the production of Kurtis Helldrivers for the US
Navy. It was there that Maxine met Bill her husband (the poor guy didn't
have a chance). They were married June 6, 1945 and they lived in Port Arthur
for one year before moving to Calgary. They were blessed first with the
birth of their son Gregory and then their daughter Judith. In 1967 when both
of the children had finished high school, Bill and Maxine moved to Nanaimo,
BC. Eventually, both Greg and Judy relocated to the island to raise their
own families. Maxine will be dearly missed by her husband of sixty years,
Bill; her son: Gregory and daughter-in-law, Lynn; daughter: Judy and
son-in-law, Gary Fletcher; the three grandchildren: Wade (Julie) Gott,
Prince George, Jason (Rika) Fletcher, Ladysmith and Lisa Fletcher Logan
(Craig Logan), Tsawwassen: and the 4 great grandchildren: Travis and Kalvin
Fletcher, and Grace and Cale Gott. Maxine was a prairie girl through and
through, any time they drove east she insisted Bill stop the car before
reaching Calgary so she could stretch her eyeballs and pick some wild
flowers. Her favourites were Buffalo Beans, Clover and Crocuses. After
living on Vancouver Island for a few years Maxine grew to love the coast and
switched to collecting rocks and sea shells instead of wild prairie flowers.
She tried out her hand at a variety of hobbies from water colour painting,
ceramics and sewing to include a quilt for each of her grandchildren. Bill
and Maxine made a point of going camping with their young family and
throughout their retirement years. Maxine loved sharing the great outdoors
with family and pets. Janet Maxine Gott born May 26, 1924 passed away with
her family at her side, February 10, 2006 at the Palliative Care Unit of the
Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Bill wishes to extend thanks to their
many friends and family who have made Maxine's path easy and more joyous by
their care and compassion. Thanks is also extended to the wonderful people
of the Palliative Care Unit and the Hospice Society of Nanaimo for their
skill and compassion. A special thank you goes to Dr. Hepburn, Dr. Wong and
Dr. Samphire for their kindness and compassionate care. A Service will be
held at Trinity United Church, 6234 Spartan Road, Nanaimo, BC on Wednesday,
February 15, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. (Reception to follow). In lieu of flowers

Castley, Kathleen Mary October 12, 1911 February 6, 2006 Kathleen was the
third of four daughters of early pioneer farm settlers, Thomas and Eliza
Castley of Tanser Crossing in the Cowichan Valley. She is survived by two
sisters, Doris McEwan of Duncan and Ethel Warwick of Nanaimo and predeceased
by her eldest sister Amy Murton of Victoria. Kathleen never married but
always took great interest in her nieces and nephews and many grandnieces
and nephews. She owned and operated Kathleen's Beauty Shop in downtown
Duncan for 40 years before retiring in 1984, which gave her more time to
pursue her favourite pastimes of reading, walking, seeing wild birds and
finding wild flowers. She knew just where to find the unusual chocolate
coloured wild Easter lilies in this area. She loved to travel and toured
Britain several times to visit friends and look up the Castley family. Her
success in the early 1960's has traced the Castley family back to 1559 and
brought about the closer reunion of both the English and Canadian Castleys.
Through her efforts, the Cowichan Valley Castleys donated a stained glass
memorial window to St. Michael's Anglican Church in Shap, in Cumbria,
England. The church is near the Castley family home, "The Thorn", in
Rosgill, and is still owned by the English branch of the family. Kathleen
found comfort in St. John's Anglican Church in Duncan as a member of the
Anglican Church Womens Group and she also sang in the church choir for many
years. The family thanks Dr. Stephen Faulkner and the staff and
professionals at Cerwydden for all their care and compassion during her
stay. A Memorial Service will be held at St. John's Anglican Church, 486
Jubilee Street, Duncan, BC on Wednesday, February 15, 2006 at 1:00 p.m.
