Tori Callsen

June 17, 1983 - September 18, 2010


CALLSEN: Tori Catherine – passed away suddenly on Saturday September 18, 2010. Born in Duncan, BC on June 17, 1983. Predeceased by her mother Sheri and her grandfather Reg Ryan. Lovingly remembered by her family; son Myles and his father Emmett; her father Doug (Faye) Callsen; siblings; Staci (Doug) Nelson, Ryan (Amie), and Darci (Adam) Dukoff; grandparents; Dorothy Ryan; Jack and Joyce Callsen; Faye’s children Chris, Todd, and Stacy; nephews; Wyatt, Braydon, and Jayden; nieces; Olivia, Abigail and Raven as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends.

Toto as she was affectionately known by her family took all her primary schooling in Lake Cowichan graduating in 2001 and in 2009 from Sprott-Shaw Community College with a diploma in Business Administration. Throughout her childhood she was a member of the Lake Cowichan Figure Skating Club, Minor Baseball, and Wilderness Club. She especially enjoyed playing slow pitch and had recently joined an all girls team in Duncan.
Tori loved hockey, especially enjoyed watching her nephews and was a huge fan of the Capitals.

Through school, work and recreation Tori made many friends and was known for having a great big smile and a hug for everyone. Her friends and family were very important to Tori and so looked forward to family birthdays and celebrations but the thing that gave her the most joy was her son Myles. She was so proud of him and had so much love for him but even though this love was so deep it could not overcome the pain she had inside and the war it must have raged in her. We will never know. She is gone from us to be with Mom and a huge part of ours hearts have been torn a part. Tori, we love you so much and pray you are now at peace.

In lui of flowers a donation can be made in Tori’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society, Canadian Mental Health Association or a charity of your choice.

A Celebration of Tori’s life will be held in the Lake Cowichan United Church, 10 King George N., Lake Cowichan BC on Saturday September 25th, 2010 at 1:00 PM with a luncheon to follow. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

My sympathy to Doug, Faye, Emmett and Myles at this difficult time. Tori was a wonderful woman. I was so proud of her accomplishments. She was dedicated to graduating from the business program. It was an honour to know her. She valued her close family and loved Myles so much. I will remember her as a strong determined woman full of love and laughs.

From: Janet Rowe
Relation: our kids went to daycare together

I did not know Tori well, but our kids went to the same daycare. When I think of her I see her big smile as she came to the door to get her ‘pumpkin head’. What a tragic loss for everyone, especially Myles. Our hearts go out to all her family at this sad time.

From: Michelle Tremblay
Relation: Her son's teacher

Sending you my condolences on this difficult time. I was informed on Monday of the devastating news. I was chocked. I talked to Myles and his mom, several mornings last week. They came early at school walking hand in hand. Tori told me, Friday morning, that she knew that her son was adjusting well at school since he was pretty happy at night talking about his day. I look forward to get to know Myles this year in my class. Sincerely, Michelle
