Sandra ARMSTRONG
Published: 2014-04-23
Regina, SK

1951 - 2014 Sandra Ann Armstrong (born Chalmers) arrived in the world via Montreal in 1951. She traversed the country many times in her youth, living alternately in Montreal and Kelowna where she became an accomplished equestrian with countless ribbons and trophies for events ranging from dressage to barrel racing and jumping to show for it. After exploring UBC (where she met Gerry Armstrong her future husband) Sandy trained as a nurse at St. Paul's Hospital before travelling through much of Central America and Europe with Gerry. They began their married life in Regina where both of their children were born before the family returned to British Columbia and moved to Victoria in 1985. Sandy died peacefully on April 19 in the Vancouver General Hospital with Gerry and her two children, Kevin and Shelley, at her bedside. Sandy was very proud of her children, their partners, Jane Armstrong and Ian Fraser, and had a special place in her heart for her first grandchild, Eleanor Anne, who arrived in Kevin and Jane's life less than four months ago. Sandy is also survived by her brother, Brian Chalmers, with whom she shared a close relationship, and his wife Megan. Sandy was widely travelled and read, a treasured friend to many (including of the feline variety), but most importantly, a wonderful mother and partner who was the lynch pin of the family. A Celebration of her Life will be held in the Harbour Room of the Delta Ocean Pointe in Victoria on Saturday, April 26 at 2:00 p.m.

KENNETH CHARLES BRAY
Published: 2014-04-23
Regina, SK

Kenneth Charles Bray passed away peacefully on April 19, 2014 at the age of 86, surrounded by his loving family. Ken was predeceased by his parents Leonard and Emily Bray; his sisters Audrey (Frank) Ellison, Doreen (Bert) Wilmer and Gwen (Jack) Monks; and his son Stephen. He will be sadly missed by his wife of 58 years, Barbara (Deed); his daughter Shirley Simon; his son Michael; his daughter-in-law Lisa Bray; granddaughters Richelle Simon (her father Brent) and Samantha (Spencer) Bray; as well as his nieces and nephews: Ann (Ron) and her children Michelle (Steve); Chris (his daughters Louisa, Katarina and Rhiannon) in Canada; and Carol, Colin and Keith and their families in England. Ken was born in Bournemouth, England on June 3, 1927. He was the fourth child and only son to Leonard and Emily Bray. Ken started out having a hard, yet character-building life in England. His father passed when he was only 8 years old and he lived through the Great Depression as well as wartime. Ken left school at an early age to help support his mother and 3 older sisters. Even though the war ended before Ken was 18, he still served two years as an airplane mechanic with the Royal British Navy. Earning a gliders pilot license as part of his training was one of his most proud accomplishments. Ken left England in 1951 and started work with the Hudson's Bay Company in the Great White North of Canada. His strong work ethic and talents soon saw him promoted to store manager. In remote Northern communities, Ken's position was the main link to the outside world and his role as manager required him to wear many different 'hats', such as banker, postman, radio operator and even fur buyer. Ken shared many fascinating stories about the olden days up North and his interesting job. He eventually specialized as a fur-buyer before retiring in 1988, after a 37-year career with the Company. In 1955, Ken's life got even better when he returned to England to marry Barb, then back to Northern Canada to start a new life together. In 1969, Ken and Barb settled in Prince Albert where they continued to raise their family. Hard-working and honest would be good words to describe Ken and values he strived to instill in his children. After retirement Ken split his time between Regina and sunny Arizona. Ken enjoyed the simpler things life had to offer and enjoyed reading, cribbage, pool, shuffleboard, crossword puzzles and his 4 PM 'Happy Hour' that you could set your watch to! The family wishes to thank Regina EMS, helpful citizens at the scene and the Emergency room staff at the General Hospital for their help in dealing with Ken's sudden passing. In accordance with Ken's wishes, there will be no formal funeral service. A Come and Go Tea to remember Ken will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at 2909 Arens Road, Regina, SK Arrangements entrusted to:
