It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear Margery Bernice Bradbrooke at Vernon Hospice House on January 18, 2008, at the age of 87 years.
Margery was a beautiful, dignified, compassionate lady who will be remembered by her family and friends for her kind generous nature, grace, and charming personality. Born near Oak Lake, Manitoba, Margery resided in several locations in Western Canada before moving from Saskatoon to White Rock then, on to Vernon in 1990. Margery was an enthusiastic golfer, often stopping to enjoy and comment on the beauty of Mother Nature surrounding her. She also participated in curling and was an avid bowler over the years. Margery enjoyed cheering on the Canucks and her “Roughies” and was thrilled to watch them win the Grey Cup last fall. Margery was predeceased by her first husband, William Cajocar, daughter Arlene Nichols, second husband, Stanley Bradbrooke and brother Gordon Hill. She will forever be remembered by her daughter Cherrill (Bill) Tew of Saskatoon, grandsons Darren (Lisa) Tew, Saskatoon, Ryan (fiancé Crystal Bonick), Calgary, brothers Lloyd (Rita) Hill, Vernon, Ken (Patti) Crosbie, Bracebridge, ON, sister-in-law Irene Hill and step-brother Patrick (Carol) Crosbie of Winnipeg and nieces and nephews. Margery will also be lovingly remembered by her step-daughter Susan (Murray) Ashton of Saskatoon, grandsons David (Andrea), Andrew (Cara), Clayton and great grandchildren Elliot, Simon, Amelia and Katie. The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff and volunteers at Vernon Hospice House for their love and attention to Margery and support to her family, also to the home care nurses, staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, and to Margery’s physician, Dr. DeBeer. A private memorial service will be held in Saskatoon at a later date. We would encourage donations, in Margery’s memory, to be made to Vernon Hospice House, 3506 – 27 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4.
