BRADLEY Gerald Francis (Jerry) 1938 - 2003 Jerry Bradley, beloved husband and friend of Joanne Bradley and father of his precious daughter Tracy Bradley, both of Calgary, passed away suddenly at home on March 1, 2003 of a massive heart attack. Besides his loving wife and daughter, he is survived by many nieces and nephews, cousins, two brothers-in-law and many wonderful friends. After Jerry's parents and sisters emigrated from Ireland, they homesteaded in Clandonald, Alberta where Jerry was born on April 7, 1938. Jerry was predeceased by his mother (Margaret), father (Frank) and his four older sisters (Mary, Elizabeth, Rose and Sarah), all of County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. At a young age, Jerry and his family moved to Edmonton, Alberta. Jerry worked for Canada Safeway for thirty-seven years where he met many of his closest friends.

CAMPBELL Sister Mary Bernadette On July 20th, 2012, at the Monastery of the Precious Blood in Hamilton, Sister Mary Bernadette Campbell entered Eternal Life in the peace of the Lord and in the hope of Resurrection. Supported by our devoted chaplain, Father Robert Dunn, her Sisters in Community and our Infirmary Nursing Staff, Sister left this world in the 92nd year of her life and the 74th of her Religious Profession. Sister Bernadette is survived by three sisters whose husbands are deceased; Peggy (Boyce) Smythe of Campbell River, BC, Cecila (Ted) Dombroski of Edmonton, AB and Frances (Joseph) Oberhoffner of White, BC.

Sister is also survived by many nieces and nephews and an ever increasing retinue of new family members, all loved by her and very devoted to her. A loving niece, Jane Catherine Marsh of Edmonton was like another sister to Bernadette and a nephew, Philip (Heather) Campbell of Ottawa, were her closest and ever faithful relatives in Ontario. Born in Stewartstown, Co. Tyrone, in Northern Island. Bernadette was eight years old when her family immigrated to Canada in June,1927. At that time there were seven children (Sister Bernadette was 3rd in the family) including Cecilia, a six-month old baby. They set sail for Quebec, Canada on the "Montcalm" and from there travelled by train to their destination in St. Paul, AB, more specifically St. Bride's. Sister Bernadette began her religious life with the Sisters of the Precious Blood in Edmonton, AB in March, 1936. She served in many Precious Blood Monasteries across Western Canada as well as in Pembroke, ON and Portland, Oregon. As a gifted seamstress, Sister made Church Vestments and Linens as well as Habits for the Sisters over many years. She was artistic, competent and generous in the many tasks to which she was assigned. Sister Bernadette never lost her Irish wit nor the accent from the land of her birth. She could come up with an appropriate story, no matter what the occasion, and she loved music and singing. Sister Bernadette was very aware that her earthly journey was ending and kept asking that we tell her family and her religious Sisters that she loved them.

BRADLEY Mona Marie (Roberts) ( Friday, 27 Mar 2015 ) It is with a great sense of loss that we announce the sudden passing of Mona Bradley (nee Roberts) at her home in Salmon Arm on March 27, 2015. Mona was born at Barrhead, Alberta on September 1, 1960. She was the 10th of 12 children born to William Roberts of Barrhead, and Mary Anne Moss, of Aghyaran, in the County Tyrone, Ireland. She spent her first seven years on the family farm. In 1967 the family moved to Revelstoke and to Salmon Arm in 1968. With the exception of a few years in Vancouver, Mona lived in Salmon Arm for the rest of her life. She was predeceased by her sister Mary in 1966, her father in 1977, her brother Ron in 2003, her mother in 2008, her brother William in 2010, and her sister Theresa in August of 2014. She was a mother, sister, aunt and great friend. Many knew her and remember her in this sad time. She was well known in the hospitality industry, as well as in the great circle of friends common to her family in the Shuswap-Okanagan, the Lower Mainland, Alberta, and in Ireland and the United States. Mona lived for her daughter, Jennifer, who grew up in Salmon Arm and graduated from high school here. During Jennifer's high school years, their home was a gathering place to a good number of young people who have now said they saw Mona as a second mother. That home was the center of her life, surrounded by the beauty of Mona's green thumbed hobby, and often filled with the delights of her great cooking and the family and friends come back from far and wide, to laugh together and tell wild stories, growing wilder in the telling at each repeat. Mona Bradley is survived by her daughter Jennifer (Nigel) of Leduc, Alberta. She is also survived by three sisters and four brothers: Maureen Roberts of Connemara, Ireland; Eileen Loewen (Darrell) of Vernon, BC; Sheila Robertson, of Delta, BC; Kevin Roberts, of Calgary, Alberta; Dennis Roberts of Salmon Arm, James Roberts (Barb) of Salmon Arm, and Patrick Roberts (Katie) of Fort Smith, NT.

PATRICK Maureen October 27, 1946 - May 20, 2013 With broken hearts we announce the passing of Maureen "Moe" Patrick after a brief, hard-fought battle with cancer. Maureen grew up on a farm in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, the youngest child of six. She attended a very primitive one room school as a child and took up the trade of hairdresser as a young adult. She obtained work on a cruise ship and traveled to exotic places all over the world. In 1979 she moved to Canada and continued working as a hairdresser, starting friendships that would last decades and putting down roots. Here she met the love of her life, Dave, supporting his various unique endeavours and becoming a warm and loving stepmother to his three children,Adrienne, Leanne, and Kevin. To know Moe was to love her. She was truly beautiful inside and out. She ran into someone she knew everywhere she went. She was nurturing, generous, and always lending a helping hand. Moe was a trustworthy confidante yet avoided talking about herself or asking for help at all costs. She never complained. She felt genuine concern for those down on their luck and quietly fundraised for many charities. An amazing hostess, Moe held legendary parties and she and Dave warmly welcomed everyone into their home and hearts. As their children found partners, their family grew to include David, Michael, and Sarah.Moe was heartbroken when Dave passed away in 2009. She actively kept his spirit alive, encouraging environmental awareness, for one small example. Despite suffering such a significant loss, she did her best to live life to the fullest and treasured many special trips with family and friends over these last several years. The twinkle in Moe's eyes also brightened considerably with the birth of her first grandchild, Drew. She called him "the best boy in Delta" and did anything she could to make him smile. Moe was furthermore fortunate to meet her two granddaughters this spring, Ava and Madeleine, and enjoyed the comfort of newborn smells and snuggles. Moe looked on the positive side of everything and was always the first to poke fun at herself when she did something "the Irish way". She had an undeniably green thumb and maintained a beautiful garden. At heart she truly remained a country girl even after living in Vancouver for 35 years and loved gathering berries to make jam which she gave to her many friends. Her best friends Fred and Keala will miss her terribly, as will her Annieville neighbours, hairdressing friends and golfing pals, many of whom were akin to family. Maureen will be lovingly remembered by brother Robert; sisters Eveline, Mabel, Kathleen, Anne; their spouses and many nieces, nephews and "greats," including: Ian, Ruth, Stephanie, David, John, Colin, Lara, Andrew, and Paul. She will further be missed by mother-in-law Lorraine, sister-in-law Laurie, brother-in-law Gord, and nephews Colin, Evan, and Jeremy. Thank you to the compassionate nurses and staff at Peace Arch Hospice who became part of Moe's extended family over these last four months. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider donating to the White Rock Hospice Society. A small graveside ceremony will take place at Boundary Bay Cemetery on May 30th at 11am. In celebration of Moe's life, an open house will be held at her residence on Sunday, June 2nd between 1-4pm. Family, friends, and neighbours are welcome to drop in and share a story or two about Moe.
We love you Moe and we'll miss you so much.

HOBSON Ethel Doreen March 17, 1923 – November 18, 2014 On November 18, 2014, Doreen Hobson passed away peacefully at the age of 91. Doreen was a true daughter of Ireland, having been born on St. Patrick's Day 1923 in Dungannon, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The second of four children born to Russell and Esther Richardson, she immigrated to Canada with her family, arriving in this country on her first birthday. Doreen spent the early years of her life on the Richardson family farm near Baring, Saskatchewan, until she met and married the love of her life, Glen Hobson. In 1942, after their marriage, Doreen and Glen farmed near Grenfell and raised two daughters, Gail and Judy. Doreen and Glen retired from farming in 1970, after which they moved to Grenfell and were active in the community for many years. During this time, they took a two-month trip around the world together, and over the years, they travelled to many far away destinations. After Glen's death in 1997, Doreen lived in Grenfell until 2005, when she moved to Regina to be closer to family. During her years in Regina, living the "condo life," she remained active by visiting with friends and family, taking on anyone who wanted to play a game of cribbage, and going for a weekly lunch with the ladies from Marian Grande.
A gifted artist, Doreen could turn her hand to almost anything, including sewing, ceramics, calligraphy, and creating hand-made cards that will always be treasured by family and friends. She was an avid gardener, and her home was a source of wonder to others because of how tidy and organized she kept it, and how it was almost a museum of family keepsakes and travel treasures. Doreen was predeceased by her parents, her husband Glen, her son-in-law Duane Bradley, her sister, Anne and brother, Raymond. She is survived by her two daughters, Gail Bradley of Regina and Judy Butterfield (Oliver) of Kelowna as well as her sister, Vera Stacey. Doreen will also be remembered with fondness by her four granddaughters: LeAnn Mogerman (Aaron), Jennifer Dickie, Cara Bradley (Stephen King), and Crista Bradley (Bruce Dawson). She very much loved her three great- grandchildren, Isaac Mogerman, Charlotte Bradley-Dawson and Benjamin Bradley- Dawson, as well as her nieces and nephews.
Doreen's family would like to thank the staff and owners of the Solace personal care home for the kindness and compassion they showed her over the past two years. Doreen soon came to think of Solace as "her home." Doreen was a kind, dignified and elegant lady who was a wonderful role model for her family and a treasured friend to many. She was infinitely patient, had a quick wit, and her grace and humility charmed everyone who met her. She was a dedicated mother and grandmother right to the end, always showing more concern for her family than for herself. Her friends and family will miss her very much.
A celebration of Doreen's life will be held at Speers Funeral Chapel, 2136 College Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 23, 2014 officiated by Rev. Kathy Platt. Cremation. Interment of ashes will take place in Grenfell Cemetery at a later date.

Those who knew Bunny, as she was affectionately known, will remember her love of family, loyalty and determination, bright smile, quick wit and delicious baking she shared with everyone. Colleen wishes to thank Dr. Salgado who went above and beyond the role of physician in his care for "My Sylvia ", and to Sylvia's extended family of caregivers at Regina Lutheran Home for the care, compassion, respect and dignity given in her final years.
