Gerow, “Janice” Ellen (Janeece)

January 14, 1936 – March 18, 2017

Celebration of Life:  Monday, May 8, 2017, 2:00 p.m., Fischer’s Funeral Services
Mrs. Janice (Janeece) Ellen Gerow (Skene) passed away peacefully at home with her family beside, on March 18th, 2017. Pre-deceased by her husband Rick Gerow, she is
survived by her son Michael, and daughter Vivian, and partners.
Janice’s greatest love was her family and her greatest passion was the contribution she made to countless young people through her counselling practice. To Janice, counselling was not a vocation or profession but was a soulful giving of her spiritual self. The love, compassion and wisdom she gave beats in the hearts of her students to this day.  
An avid hockey fan, Janice, with Rick, cheered for her Vancouver Canucks, win or lose.  
Our deep gratitude to the Home Support care aides, and Shuswap Hospice Society, who continued to give to her, and value her, as she passed from us.
Memorial donations in Janice’s name may be made to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, 1690 Matthews Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V6J 2T2, www.canuckplace.org, would be appreciated.
Please join us for a Celebration of Life: Monday, May 8, 2017, 2:00 p.m., Fischer’s Funeral Services Salmon Arm.

Burge, Brendan Anthony

June 14, 1992 – March 17, 2017
at the age of 24 years

A celebration in honour of Brendan will be held at Intermissions Restaurant and Lounge at the Shaw Centre, 2600 10th Ave NE, Salmon Arm on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 1:00pm.

Brendan Anthony Burge was taken from us far too soon. Brendan was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and passed suddenly at the age of 24 in the city of Kelowna, BC. 
Brendan was a loving, devoted father who is survived by his beautiful daughter Bodene Raleigh Rogal-Burge as well as his loving parents Tony and Shelley, sister Brittany and brother Brody. 
Brendan has left numerous loved ones behind including grandparents Joan Burge, George (Ladene) LaRocque as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, and many special friends. 
Brendan also known as “Burgey” accomplished many things in life. Brendan travelled across Canada pursuing his passion of playing hockey. He continued that passion overseas to play in Germany, before settling down as a small business owner in Kelowna.  He was predeceased by his grandfather Bill Burge.
Brendan’s infectious smile and outgoing personality will be missed by all. Brendan has touched many hearts leaving lasting impressions in words that can’t be expressed.
In lieu of flowers, a trust fund has been arranged for his daughter in hopes she can pursue everything she’s ever dreamed of and more.  Salmon Arm Credit Union account: Bodene Raleigh Rogal-Burge,
