We regret to announce the death on August 6, 2004, of Mrs. GWENDOLINE (”Taffy”) DOREEN KIRK, at the age of 81 years. Taffy was born in Wales, and served during the Second World War in the Royal Air Force. Following her marriage to Henry Kirk (an RCAF veteran) they moved to Canada, and resided in the Lavington and Coldstream areas for more than 55 years. Taffy was an ardent golfer all of her life, and was a longtime member of the Vernon Golf Club. She was predeceased by her husband, Henry, in 1995. Taffy will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children: son Mike (Evelyn) and daughter Jackie Quast, all of Coldstream; grandchildren: Lisa and Lana Kirk and Tina (Spence) Ward, and Greg Quast. She is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, and extended family members. Friends are invited to join the family at a gathering in her memory, to be held on Saturday, August 14, between 2pm and 4pm, at 5617 Learmouth Road. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Baerg-McMurtry Cancer Clinic at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, 2101-32 Street, Vernon, V1T 5L2, would be greatly appreciated. Cremation arrangements were in the care of VERNON FUNERAL HOME 250-542-0155.
