Virginia Mary TAYLOR

Aug. 5,1923- Jan. 19, 2015

We regret to announce the passing of Virginia Taylor at the George Derby Long Term care facility for veterans in Burnaby BC.

She served with the Cana-dian Women’s Corps as a Sergeant Major overseas at the end of the Second World War.

Virginia came to 100 Mile House in 1951 with her husband and children to live at The Lodge property with the Emissaries of Divine Light, but she loved to attend the local Anglican Church when she could. She was a member of the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary for a number of years and made many friends in the community. She was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion and on the executive for a period of time.

She left 100 Mile House in 1972 and moved to Vancouver where she worked for Canada Immigration for over 20 years until retirement. While living in Vancouver she volunteered for a number of organizations.

Virginia is survived by younger brother Bill Horton of Penticton, son Dave Taylor of 100 Mile, daughter Daphne Taylor of White Rock, daughter Betty Goertz (Ken) of 100 Mile, five grandchildren: Andrew (Meghan), Pamela, Amanda, Gillian (Tyler), and Richard. She also had one great grandchild Erica.

She will be remembered for her outgoing, friendly dispo-sition and her willingness to help people when she could. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. No immediate service is planned at this time.
