BANFIELD, Ida Evelyn Danford (McAllister) April 7, 1914 October 20, 2008 Ida
was born in Seattle, Washington April 7th, 1914. She was the only child of
John and Evelyn McAllister. Predeceased by husband of 48 years George in
1982 and son John (Jack) in 1998. Survived by sons Keith (Margaret), Vern
(Denise), Wayne (Marilyn), daughter-in-law Lyna, many grandchildren, great
grandchildren and dear friends, whom she loved dearly. Ida spent some early
years in Vancouver, North Van and Victoria. The family settled in Esquimalt
where she spent many happy years. She had fond memories which she shared in
her fabulous stories about family history that will be remembered and passed
on to future generations. One of her cherished memories was with George
living in Hudson Hope while George worked on the Peace River Dam from 1967
1970. Ida's love for flowers and roses and tending to her garden were a
passion. When weather didn't permit one could find her at yet another
favourite pastime knitting, crocheting, listening to music or playing her
family piano and always ready for tea whenever anyone dropped by to visit.
She was kind and compassionate with a wonderful sense of humour and an
inspiration to us all and will be sadly missed by her loving family and many
friends. There will be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made
to a charity of your choice. Condolences to www.mccallbros.com 508158
