My condolences on the passing of your Mom. She was such a kind, giving Lady.
I will always remember her joyful laugh and the times she came over to my parents house on Fraser st., to sing songs as my Dad played the guitar. Love Charlotte.

I was saddened to hear of Billie's passing. She was such an active member of Kamloops United Church. For many years I would look out from the choir and see Billie with that beautiful, serene, and welcoming smile. She will be missed....but not forgotten.

So many wonderful memories of Billie in happier times; from her support and bright red lipstick in my youth, to Blazer hockey games, to drives around the Interior, lunchs out, and finally to trips to the DQ drive through and enjoying an icecream as we watched the dogs playing at Pioneer Park. Billie never had a bad word to say about anyone and contributed much to her community through wonderful baking for events and work for her church. I remember her cooking up a storm for the seniors dinners, when she was older than most attending. She enjoyed all the memories of growing up on the Prairies with her sisters and trips on the train for holidays. She was such a good friend to many.
I have missed her this past year of covid and am glad she rests in peace. Fly high Billie!

I have very fond memories of your Mom during our Time together at Kamloops United Church. I was younger than your Mom, - she served as a exemplary role model of a happy, new positive, giving soul. She seemed so happy to be in the church kitchen helping with the various United Church women’s activities. God’s speed Billie, rest In peace.

Billie’s Family,
Pat and I were privileged to meet Billie through her dear sister Hannah. We spent time with her and Jack when she would visit Saskatchewan. She was the most positive and delightful of company.
We are sorry for the loss of your wonderful mother and grandmother. May you find comfort in your cherished memories of her.
Pat and Joanne Connolley
