We regret to announce the death on August 3, 2004, of Mr. Stephen Stanley Advent, at the age of 92 years. Steve was born in Manitoba, and was a resident of Coldstream for over fifty years, prior to his retirement to Vernon 20 years ago. He was a dedicated orchardist for most of his long life. Steve was predeceased by a son, Kenneth, in 1947. He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 70 years, Annie; son Bob and wife Jane of Coldstream; daughters Shirley and husband Don Henry of Coldstream, and Betty-Anne and husband Dr. Pat Wyse of Calgary; and their families. Steve is also survived by a brother, Frank Advent of Vernon, and numerous extended family members. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, August 7, at 2:00 p.m., in the Chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, with Mr. Brian Jackson officiating. Interment will follow in the Coldstream Cemetery.
