James Drury

JAMES THOMAS ‘JIM’ DRURY passed away quietly into the presence of the Lord with his wife at his side; on Friday January 30, 2003, which was also the day of his 88th birthday. He was predeceased by his brother Samuel. Jim will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 29 years, Myrna, his sister Zoe Heffernan and his brother-in-law Graham (Helen) Lough, and several nieces, nephews and extended family. Jim retired from the restaurant business when he was 62 years of age. He loved to cook and especially enjoyed making up his own recipes. Even after retiring, and with failing eyesight, he never lost his passion for cooking. In 1992, Jim and Myrna moved to Vernon from Vancouver. Jim was member of Faith Baptist Church. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday February 5, 2003 at Faith Baptist Church with Pastor Dan Head officiating.
