Following her retirement in 1987, Betty and Bill made their home in Burlington where they enjoyed family get-togethers, celebrations and many cultural and sporting events. A lifelong reader, Betty especially appreciated her book club. She taught and regularly attended aquafit classes at the Y.

To round out her activities, Kay owned and operated an upscale clothing consignment shop for several years. In 1999, Kay moved to Calgary to begin a new chapter in her life and to be closer to her family.
All of her life Kay provided guidance and support for all of her Friends, associates and family members and she always did this in a warm and gracious manner.

SPERLING, Linda Joyce
Died suddenly August 24, 2007, with her family at her side after a brief illness in Paris, France, where she was vacationing. Born February 9, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois, Linda dedicated her life to improving the lives of working people. A committed feminist, an outstanding organizer and a shrewd, determined negotiator, she lifted people up, both with her own leadership and her remarkable ability to mentor and inspire her Friends and fellow workers. After completing university in Madison, Wisconsin, Linda travelled widely before moving to Vancouver and Simon Fraser University in 1969. She later moved to Regina, Saskatchewan, where she commenced her trade union work in 1977 with the Saskatchewan Government Employees Union. She led groundbreaking pay equity negotiations for hospital workers and clerical workers. In 1984, she became Prairie representative for the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, where she again helped win important pay equity victories. She worked closely with nurses delivering health services in First Nations communities across Western Canada and the Northwest Territories. A critical incidents intervention policy she helped nurses establish in Manitoba First Nations communities is now used across Canada. In 1991, she returned to British Columbia to become a staff representative with the Federation of PostSecondary Educators, where she negotiated agreements and fought to improve the condition of part-time instructors, mainly women. She was a teacher herself, instructing for many years in the Capilano College Labour Studies Program. Throughout her life, Linda linked her union work to the wider struggle for social justice in Canada and globally. She served on the board of Women's and Children's Hospital, in Vancouver, and the board of Co-Development Canada, a unique non-profit organization that works in partnership with community organizations in Latin America. After her retirement in 2006, she undertook work for Canadian International Development Agency as a gender equity specialist in China. Linda is survived by her husband Fred CUDDINGTON; her sister Carol LEVY and her nephew Robert LEVY, of Madison, Wisconsin as well as her daughter Shoshana SPERLING (Maury) and grand_son Henry; son Adam SPERLING (Alla) and granddaughters Samantha, Sophia and Ekaterina. She is mourned as well by Fred's children Clinton CUDDINGTON (Monica) and grandchildren Olive and Eero and Natasha CUDDINGTON (Frank) and grand_sons Tadc and Padraig. A celebration of Linda's life will be held Sunday, September 9, at 2 p.m. at Sage Bistro, University Centre, University of British Columbia, 6331 Crescent Road, Vancouver. Friends are invited to bring pictures, written stories and other memorabilia of Linda's life for inclusion in a memorial book. A second memorial celebration will be planned for Regina, Saskatchewan at a later date. Donations to Co-Development Canada, a women's transition house or Greenpeace are requested in lieu of flowers.
