On Sunday, November 17, 2013, Vi passed away three days before her 87th birthday at Sunridge Place, Duncan, BC, with her family at her side. Vi was born November 20, 1926 in Spalding, Saskatchean to Walter and Gertrude Paddle. She joined the C.W.A.C. Army at Regina, Sask and did her basic training at Guelph, Ontario then was posted as a ledger clerk in Montreal. She came back to Regina where she met her future husband Allan, who was serving with the Army Provo Corp. They later returned and married in Duncan where the family had moved to. Vi worked for the Provincial Dept. or Agriculture before she and Al started their family. Her many hobbies included early years of camping with her family and friends, gardening, bottle digging, painting, coin collecting and many fun trips to Reno, but above all these her greatest pleasures were her grand and great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her husband Allan, sisters Dot Foucher, Kit Wright, and her brother Jack Brown. Survived by her three children Greg (Kelly), Brian (Karen), Jennifer Davies (Bob), 10 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren and one expected shortly. Special thanks to the caregivers at Sunridge Place and who looked after Mom for the last five years.
