A Cold Prickly

Via Villoy Dorrington:

A polar ice cold prickly to the person or persons who pulled up the phlox growing on the rockery in front of our home, throwing it onto the rest of the rockery and actually throwing the rocks there also.

How dare you destroy what Bob and I are trying to beautify? You have probably killed a good part of the growth by throwing those rocks onto it, some of which came from somewhere else.  This we know because we hauled only white rocks to use here.  Who the hell do you think you are? If you are so intent on making things miserable for us why not just help find a buyer for our place and you can be rid of us?  It would take a lot less effort on your part and you would not have to wait until we were away or asleep to do your damage.

Shame on you for sneaking around to do something like this. I can guarantee you that if there are any more incidents like this, the authorities will be notified, a file opened, and certain persons questioned.

Jacquelyn Betty Bell Passes

Jacquelyn Betty Bell_1Jacquelyn Betty Bell

Jacquelyn “Jackie” Betty Bell passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on August 1, 2014, one month shy of 81 years old.

Jackie was born at home in Swan River, Manitoba on Sept 28, 1933.  She was the third child of four girls born to Jack and Annie Jones.  She met her husband, Keith Edward Francis Bell from Portage la Prairie at a barn dance.  They eloped to Edmonton, Alberta where they were married on Dec 12, 1953, a marriage of 60 years.  They started their family and resided there for 20 years before moving to Gold River, BC in 1974.  Jackie’s main focus in life was to be the maker of a very happy home.  Friends and family appreciated her ability to be forthright but never hurtful.  With twinkly eyes and a heartwarming smile, she was very humble, unpretentious, and accepted everyone for who they were, making her very easy to like.  She never knew it, but had the power to have an extraordinary affect on all those who knew her.  At the root of everything she did was her strong Christian faith whether it was teaching Sunday school, helping on a church or health auxiliary, or just simply helping a neighbour, a friend, or sometimes a complete stranger.  She was an avid reader, especially of the Bible and of church history that was written even before the Bible was printed.  She attended many bible studies of various Christian denominations.

Jackie silently suffered for many years with lupus and lastly cancer, but whenever she was asked about her health, even in her last days, she would always be grateful for the things that were good as “it could be worse.”

She is survived by her husband Keith; her two children John “Richard” (Linda) and Bridgite (Richard “Rick” Messer).   Jackie has three grand children: Christin (Luke Schaab), Justin Bell and Cassandra Messer.  She is also survived by her two sisters Gwen and Mae and is predeceased by her third sister Anita.

Family and friends are invited to a viewing on Friday August 8, 2014 at 12PM at the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 1PM.  Also, thank you to the Gold River Senior’s club who are arranging to have refreshments and snacks in the church basement after the Mass.

Special thanks, with the utmost admiration, for the assistance provided by all the staff at the Gold River Health Clinic and our local VIHA home care assistant, enabling Jackie to spend her last days in her own home.

Thank you to anyone considering a memorial donation.  She would have greatly appreciated that. Jackie donated to many charities, but one of her favourites was Operation Smile: 1-888-677-6453 or operationsmile.ca

The way Jacquelyn lived her life is a wonderful example for us all.

Resident Spotlights – Rick & Kirsty Begon

Rick & KirstyI met both these Resident Spotlights even before we moved back to Gold River in 2007.   It must have been during our Ahousaht days (2004-06) when we would come back to Muchalaht Lake to camp.  They were just dating back then! (Separate tents, I’m sure.)

Thanks so very much Kirsty and Rick for taking the time out of your busy schedules to be my Spotlights!

I hope everyone enjoy this two-for-one Spotlight as much as I did! :)

How long have you lived in Gold River?

Kirsty – almost 9 years.

Rick – I moved here in 1969, when I was 12 years old.

What brought you here?

Kirsty – The love of my life!

Rick – my Dad worked in the pulp mill.

What do you do for (paid) work?

Kirsty – I own, A lot in the Side/ Sears. And I’m a councillor for our Village.

Rick – I work for Nootka Sound Service, and I’m also the Fire Chief for the Gold River Volunteer Fire Dept.

Please tell us about any volunteer work you do.

Kirsty – I volunteer with the Gold River Community Policing. I try to help any group that needs it. I bake for bake sales, help with bottle drives as well as Gold River Days. I’m also working on the revitalizing of Nimpkish Park.

Rick – I have been a volunteer fire fighter for 18 years, and like Kirsty, I try to help whenever asked.

Please tell us a bit about your family.

Our immediate family is:

Kirsty, – I have 3 children.  Tia, my oldest lives here.  Shantelle and Anthony both lived here and went to GRSS, then moved down Island .  A few years ago my Mommy moved to Gold River also!

Rick – I have 1 daughter, Stephanie who lived in Gold River. She has since moved away and currently lives in Alberta.

Tia  has a little boy named Connor who is everything to us.  Tia works a lot and we are blessed to have Connor.

Rick & Stephanie Anthony, Shantelle & TiaConnor


Our extended family:

We have our Church family, we are blessed to have all of them! The Fire Dept is another part of our family.

Do you have any pets?

Do we have pets??!!  We have 2 horses, Merlin and Aly, and our little dog Tod.  We have our cats as well… only Smudge is Ricks, the rest are the kids cats.

Merlin & Aly Tod

We are very happy to say that we are adopting a new dog!  We get “Maggie” on August 9th.

What do you like to do for fun?

Kirsty – I love riding. But I don’t have enough time to ride as much as I want.  Being with my family and when I have time, I love scrap-booking.

Rick – I golf, and love puttering at the barn.

What do you wish Gold River had that it doesn’t? Is there anything missing for you?

Kirsty – all my kids!

Rick – jobs for young people.

And just for fun – if you had 1 million dollars to donate to the community in any way you wished – what would you do with the money?

Kirsty – either a really cool playground, or a new seniors centre.

Rick – I’d donate it to the golf course

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Kirsty – Gold River is a wonderful community.  I’m very lucky to live here and be part of this Village.

Rick – Gold River always steps up and helps out whenever anyone needs it’s a fantastic community to be part of.
