Courageous, capable and always resourceful, Marion was Peter's constant support until his death in 1985. She found great pleasure in books, cats, fishing and in all birds, but especially loons. She wrestled and coaxed several beautiful gardens out of unpromising patches of land and inspired a love of flowers in all her daughters. For decades her prodigious knitting needles helped support the sheep farming industry. Her recipe for macaroni and cheese was in a class by itself. We will miss her. In keeping with Marion's wishes, cremation has taken place. Interment in Quebec will follow at a later date. If desired, in lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Marion's memory to one of her favourite causes, the Canadian Wildlife Federation or the Salvation Army, or a charity of choice.

MUIR, Dollie May Wong (née GIN)
Peacefully, at her home in Victoria, British Columbia on October 28, 2005, after a six-month struggle with cancer. Dollie was born in Herbert, Saskatchewan on December 11, 1944 to the late Wong and May GIN. She is survived by her husband, William; brother-in-law James (Margaret) of Toronto; stepdaughter Claire (Mark HUISMAN) and stepson Alastair of Toronto; sister Joeline (Sammy) SHONG of Victoria; and five brothers: Sueloge (Elaine) GIN, Ken GIN, and Henry GIN, all of Herbert, Saskatchewan; King (Gayle, deceased) GIN of Gull Lake, Saskatchewan; and Dan (Julie) THOM of Akron, Ohio. She will be sadly missed by her many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
Dollie attended schools in Herbert and Victoria, and studied at the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan. She retired from teaching English as a Second Language at the University of Regina in 1997 to come to Victoria. Earlier she had worked in credit reporting in Regina. Among her activities there were Credit Women International and the University Women's Club. She did extensive volunteer work in adult literacy, for which she received an award from the Regina Public Library.
Travel was one of Dollie's pleasures, and she had fond memories of wine country tours in Oregon, California, and the Okanagan, extensive trips to Europe and Asia, and of winter months spent in Mexico. She enjoyed physical activities such as early morning jogging, scuba diving, and pumping iron with the Gym Goons at Planet Fitness. Among the groups in Victoria that will miss Dollie's contributions are the Hillside Mall Walkers Club, the Oak Bay Tea Party, and the Saanich Sommeliers winemaking club. Moving to Victoria presented a challenge that she revelled in: designing a house and a garden that would end up on the cover of Gardens West. One of the bitterest blows that cancer dealt her was preventing her from passing the final test that would have qualified her for membership in the British Columbia Guild of Wine Judges.
A celebration of Dollie's life will be held on Sunday, December 4, 2005 starting at 2: 00 p.m. at the Horseshoe Club of Victoria at 620 Kenneth. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Victoria Hospice, whose compassionate and professional care helped ease Dollie's way along her difficult voyage.

WILKINSON, Mary Elizabeth (née MUIR)
Passed away on October 27th, 2005 at the age of 93, at Lakeview Manor, Beaverton, Ontario. The first of four children born to Rutherford and Ethel MUIR, Mary spent her childhood in Saint John, New Brunswick. In her teens, she left the East Coast for the excitement of Toronto. With spunk and a kind heart, Mary created lasting Friendships and, in her twenties, she met and married Albert WILKINSON. Mary was a dedicated wife and the proud mother of two boys, Robert "Bob" and Jack. A "Modern" career woman, she balanced the demands of raising her children while working two jobs to support her family, including chocolate-making at Laura Secord. With a fondness for sweets, chocolate not withstanding, there was never a short supply of cookies or squares in the house. In the family-built cottage on Wagner's Lake, she started the tradition of hosting roast beef dinner every Sunday for her sons, and their families. In her retirement Mary dedicated much of her time to being a Jehovah's Witness; she appreciated and enjoyed the Friendships she made in the religion. Later on she moved the Pefferlaw in order to be closer to her sons. Mary cast a brilliant light not only on her family but on all those who were lucky enough to know her. Someone that special will never be forgotten. Her memory will always shine on. Mary was predeceased by her husband, Albert WILKINSON. She is survived by her family, including her sons Bob (Leslie) of Port Perry and Jack (Faye) of Wilfrid; her grandchildren Scott (Elaine), Rob (Alisha), Lisa, Carrie, Janet (Kelvin) and Mike; her great-grandchildren Leigh, Makayla, Riley, Aiden, Elizabeth, Paul and Jamie. Mary will also be dearly missed by her East Coast relatives, as well as her life-long Friends Stan and Lorraine TERENE. Mary will be laid to rest in Hart Cemetery in Wilfrid, Ontario, during a private service on November 7th, 2005.
