With courage and faith Janice Merdean Daughton succumbed to cancer at the age of 74 with loved ones by her side.
Janice was born at St. Rose De Lac, Manitoba, to Hazel and Robert Harrison. She was the oldest of 3 children. Janice grew up on a farm and enjoyed the companionship of lots of extended family during those years.
At 11 years of age her family moved to Terrace Bay, ON. They moved to Hinton, AB, when Janice was 16. There she finished school and became a nurse’s aide. It was here that she met and married her husband Douglas Daughton. Together they raised a family of 3 children. After 35 years in Hinton, Janice and Doug retired to Sunny Brae, BC, where she lived out her life taking great pleasure in having family and friends gather in her home and yard to play and visit.
Family was always very important to Janice. At this time of her passing, her family cherishes the memories of her devotion to her family and the efforts she took to keep her family close. Her faith, kindness, and personal example were a loving force in their lives and will continue to be so.
Janice was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Douglas Daughton. She will be sadly missed by her children: Carrie Callihoo (Calvin), Rhonda Kicia (Ken), Shane Daughton (Tanya); 12 grandchildren and 81/2 great-grandchildren; as well as her brother Phil Harrison (Elaine) and her sister Brenda Harrison.
Many thanks to the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and to Joan and Chris Clark for their tremendous love and support.

It is with deep shock and sadness that the Morris Family announces the sudden passing of Brian Edward Morris at only 51 years young, on November 7th, 2014 at Little White Lake, BC. He is survived by his wife Angelina, and her children; Douglas Reyes (Mariko), Jane Reyes and granddaughter Kiana; his mother Darlene & father Brian, his sisters; Sandra (Lee), Sherryl (Al), and Susan (Trevor). Brian’s pride and joy was his life as a Captain in the White Lake Volunteer Fire Department (WLVFD). He was very active in the White Lake Community Association and the White Lake Residents’ Association. He was also an avid fisherman who spent many hours on White Lake, and an aspiring musician who played sax, drums, guitar and harmonica as well as some pretty decent vocals. He became a popular host for a Salmon Arm community radio program, Vinyl Suitcase on Voice of the Shuswap CKVS 93.7 FM. A radio program tribute to Brian is planned for Nov. 28th at 7 pm, Nov. 30th at 10 am and Dec 2nd at 3 pm.
The WLVFD invites all friends and family to a Celebration of Life and Community Tribute, to be held at the White Lake Community Hall at 11 am on Saturday the 29th of November.
The Morris Family is planning an additional family Celebration of Life to be held in late May/June of 2015 to facilitate travel plans for all our relatives and friends.
