BLOW, Lee (nee Jones) April 24, 1952 November 24, 2007 Lee gave it her best
as she always did. Pushing herself to her limits whether fighting her
disease, working, running, field hockey, motorcycling, basketball,
photography, water skiing, karate or caring for her family and other
relationships; Lee lived a fast-paced life and one could always count on her
vibrant intensity and devotion. Lee has forever inspired her husband Gordon,
her daughter Mardi and her son Les. Lee is also survived by her mothers,
Mary Jones and Rhoda Collins, her father James Collins, her sisters: Lynn
Stevens (Paul), Lynn Mantello (Frank, Paul and Joanna) and Joanne Butler
(Todd, Nellie), her brothers: Randy Jones (Linda, Keith and Alana), George
Collins (Denise, Sam and Monique) and Billy Collins. Lee forged countless
diverse, dynamic and durable relationships throughout her lifetime, and she
continuously expressed her value of these many people in her life and her
appreciation for the abundant love and support she has found especially
within the past 14 months. Lee was notably grateful for the friendship she
found in Vicki Drader, the Christian clan and her co-workers at BC Ferries.
