Also survived by nine grandchildren, Lisa, Lara, Christopher, Stephen, Cynthia, Mark, Barbara, Kristin and Peter; also 11 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, family and friends. The family would like to thank and acknowledge the care and support provided by special granddaughter, Lisa and husband, Derek, Margie and all the staff of Arbour House. Your loving care for Mom will be forever remembered. Special thanks to Val of Angel Helping Hands, Penny Clare and staff of VIHA-Ladysmith and especially Doctors Lisinski and Watson. Mom was never one to shy away from expressing her opinion or taking on the politicians of the day; she championed her causes with determination. Having a Horticulturist’s degree gave her the knowledge to take on environmental issues and she was an outspoken conversationalist whenever the need arose. Mom took great pleasure in passing her gardening skills onto family and friends and worked long hours on things that she believed in for a better world for all of us. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Esther’s life will be held at Sands Funeral Chapel, 1803 Quadra Street, Victoria, BC at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 10, 2008 with a later private family burial in Hatley Park, Garden of Gethsemane. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Jedidiah Trust Foundation or an environmental charity of one’s choice. We love you Mom, your warm smile and great sense of humor will forever be missed. Condolenses may be offered at www.sandsfuneral.com
