STEELE, Isobel Ferguson " Tibbie"
b. July 9, 1910; died peacefully at Kiwanis Care Home in New Westminster, British Columbia on June 25, 2007, two weeks short of her 97th birthday.

At age six, Tibbie emigrated from Scotland with her family, taking up residence in New Westminster, where she lived for most of her life. She will be remembered for her gracious manner, her inquiring mind, and her lively interest in the lives of her family, Friends, and former students. Tibbie began her long teaching career at age 19, in a 1 room schoolhouse on Gabriola Island, moving to Courtney and returning during the war years to teach in New Westminster, where she remained until she retired in 1973. Her determination and love of learning, particularly history, led her to gradually complete both Bachelors and Masters degrees at University of British Columbia. In her active retirement years she continually sought out ways to pursue her intellectual, social and spiritual interests (University Women's Club; Philanthropic Educational Opportunity Chapter "P"Sisterhood; St. Aiden's Presbyterian church), and spent many enjoyable months each year at the family summer home at Gower Point on the Sunshine Coast, where she made lifelong Friends among the summer resident families there. The family wishes to thank the staff of Kiwanis Care for the kindness and love they showed towards Tibbie, and for the excellent all-round environment of both peaceful care and stimulating activity which made her last years so enjoyable for her. A family Memorial Service will be held for Tibbie at Kiwanis Care Centre.

PILFOLD, Joseph Henry (April 24, 1920-August 7, 2007)
Joseph Henry PILFOLD was born a true cockney in Bermondsey at the South end of Tower Bridge in London in 1920. His mother and father were once elected Pearly King and Queen. His handsome looks and flaming red hair which remained until very late in life made him stand out, as did his ability as a crooner, soccer player, dart player and jovial wit. At nineteen he saw active service in the British army in West Africa, catching malaria. He volunteered as a gunner on merchant ship convoys crossing the Atlantic and was torpedoed twice on the same day in the Bay of Biscay in two different ships, surviving 36 hours in the water before being rescued.
Near the end of the war he was assigned to the entertainment unit. He met a beautiful war widow with two young children, Amy SUCH (née GUNTHORPE) while performing at the Adelphi Theatre and they married in Christmas of 1948. Amy and Joe opened up a florist shop then immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1953. There, Joe worked in real estate, at one time opening his own business before being appointed the sales manager for Pitney Bowes. He and Amy spent their life moving back and forth between Canada and the United Kingdom several times before settling in British Columbia some 20 years ago. He is survived by his wife Amy, step-sons Lionel and Peter SUCH, their wives Alice SUCH and Joyce KLINE grandchildren Lionel, Kerry, Stephanie, Luba and Julia and great-grandchildren Spencer, Stirling, Morgan and Tuesday. A celebration of Joe's life will be held at First Memorial, 1155 Fort Street in Victoria, on September 8, at 3.00 p.m.
