LYSTER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-11-15 published
(October 8, 1921 To November 10, 2006)
Olive was born near Cabri, Saskatchewan, the fourth child of Joseph and Susan LYSTER. While still an infant Olive's family moved to Empress, Alberta, where her father was employed by the C.P.R. She. received all her formal education through the Empress schools. Extracurricular activities included C.G.I.T., tap-dancing, badminton, softball, and wiener roasts on the banks of the Red Deer River. On a Sunday in May, 1940, she accompanied her father to the service in Saint Mary's Church where the congregation would welcome their new minister, recently-ordained and youthful, Hugh CHRISTMAS. Although she always denied it, there are others who are certain they heard her whisper to her father that after the service he should invite the new minister home for a cup of tea. Whatever, thus began a 66-year long love affair. The regulations of the church made it impossible for Hugh to be married until he was 24-years of age and ordained to the Priesthood. So, after an interminable period of being 'the preacher's girlfriend', on October 19, 1942, Olive and Hugh stood in Saint Mary's Church, Empress, and exchanged their marriage vows. Subsequently, the couple lived in and served the following Saskatchewan communities: Alsask, Milden, Wolseley, and Estevan. James was born while they were still in Alsask; David, in Wolseley; and Janice, in Estevan. In 1954, Hugh was recruited into the Royal Canadian Air Force as a Chaplain. His first 'posting' was to Summerside, Prince Edward Island. where the girl from the prairies was introduced to lobsters and other Maritime experiences. Subsequent 'postings' were to Winnipeg, Calgary, Toronto, and Moose Jaw. By this time, Hugh had been promoted to the rank of Lt. Col., and was sent to Lahr, W. Germany, as Senior Chaplain in Europe. This development made it possible for Olive to accompany him on many trips - Sardinia, to American bases in Ramstein, and Brunnsum in Holland, to conferences in Rome and Paris, and to Prague, Czechoslovakia (behind the Iron Curtain). On holidays, they visited Hugh's parents in England, and visited his birthplace. Of course, none of these places could be reached without passing through London, and Olive reveled in the shopping and the live theatre. 1972 brought them back to Training Command H.Q. in Winnipeg, and a year later Hugh was 'honourably discharged on account of age', and they were 'retired'. Where to live? Years before, by mutual agreement, they had selected Calgary as 'the only place we chose to live'. So, after a brief spell as Rector of The Church of the Good Shepherd, Hugh was persuaded to work for the D.V.A. as Chaplain in the Col. Belcher Veterans' Hospital. And there Olive really found the opportunity to give expression to her abilities as a Volunteer Care-Giver. (After the death of her little daughter, Susan, Olive worked out her grief and loss by working as a Nursing Aide, first in the Elm Tree Nursing Home in Toronto, and then in Central Park Lodge, in Moose Jaw.) Not only on Sunday mornings rushing wheel-chairs to the Hospital Chapel, but on any day of the week you would find her up on the wards. Sometimes just quietly holding a shaky hand, sometimes chatting about 'old times', reading or writing a letter. On several occasions Olive was instrumental in linking veterans with long lost relatives. In all things she was like a big sister to 'her boys'. And this caring concern carried on into the move into the 'new Belcher'. On at least one occasion Olive was a nominee for Care-Giver of the Year. There are people throughout Alberta and British Columbia who will always link her name with the Calgary Children's Milk Fund. Through the 1990's she collected and counted literally hundreds of thousands of creamer tops and brand labels and logos from 1- and 2-litre milk containers. Hers was truly a life full of love - for her husband, her children, and her neighbours. To Maxine Johnston and the exceptional team of care-givers at the Brentwood Care Centre: you have the heartfelt gratitude of this Christmas family. Olive was predeceased by her parents, three siblings, her elder son James, and her infant daughter Susan. She is survived by her husband; daughter-in-law, Rose (Calgary); her son, David (Coleen) recently moved to Calgary; and her daughter, Janice (David) PAULSON, of Pr. George, British Columbia; nine grandchildren: Heather and Laura, of Calgary; Katherine (Dean) FUSSEY, of Calgary; Daniel (Crystal,) and James (Nicole) of Winnipeg; Eric (Lisa) PAULSON, of New York; Jeffrey PAULSON, of Whistler, British Columbia Michael PAULSON, of Pr. George; and Andrew PAULSON, of Whitehorse, Northwest Territories.; also, two great-grandchildren: Jaymie Noelle CHRISTMAS and Nathan James CHRISTMAS, both of Winnipeg. Funeral services will be held in St. Barnabas' Anglican Church, 1407 - 7 Ave. N.W., Calgary, on Thursday, November 16th at 1: 30 p.m. the Rev. Jagdutt Singh, Presider. Burial in the family plot in Queen's Park Cemetery. For those who do not go to the cemetery, please note that a reception will follow in the St. Barnabas' Parish Hall. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Altar Guild of St. Barnabas' Anglican Church. Heritage Funeral Services 'Heritage Funeral Home' Telephone: 403-299-0100.
