Vina and I were good friends in high school in Kitimat. She often came to my home for lunch. We lost touch when we both moved away from Kitimat to attend different universities, but had a wonderful reunion in 2019 when I met her in Vancouver and we spent 10 days together travelling in B.C. Our itinerary included Haida Gwaii, Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Kitamaat Village, where we stayed with Vina’s brother Lloyd, and all the towns on the drive back to Vancouver, as well as Shuswap Lake. I learned a lot from Vina and feel blessed to have made that trip with her. My deepest condolences to Vina’s family. She was a unique and special person.

I am so sorry to hear of Dear Vina's passing. My sincere Condolences to her family. I met and knew Vina from our early teen years in Namu B.C. The fun times we shared as young ladies I shall remember always. We worked so hard at cannery, and still had the time and energy to go dancing on the weekend after a week of long tedious hours of washing fish in the plant. Sweet Memories of those wonderful days of our early teen years my dear friend. Rest is Sweet Wonderful Peace my Dear Friend. With Respect Connie (Humchitt) & Glenn Tallio.

Vina and I shared many trips from Vancouver to home and back and my spirits always lifted when I saw her at the Terrace airport, knowing that I was in for another tale swapping, fun flight south. She was wise and full of compassion and always up for a good laugh. So sad to know she has passed.

Special thanks for the memory of meeting Vina and having the opportunity to hear many of her special stories about growing up, her family, the Village, and her passion for her career. We only spent an afternoon together but I am so grateful for the time with her!

I went to law school with Vina far too long ago. I lost touch with her after that, but have very fond memories of her kind and helpful nature. I am so sorry to hear she has passed away.

Heartfelt condolences to Vina's family and friends.

Vina became a friend when we attended the United Church's Christian Leadership Training School in Naramata, BC in 1962-63. As recent high school graduates we were searching for a purpose and meaning to life and our futures. Vina found her purpose in the law and worked tirelessly to enrich the lives of those who relied on her legal services.

Although separated for years, we renewed our friendship in retirement, enjoying many social times together. Her smile, sense of humor, storytelling, and raucous laughter will be fondly remembered. I will long cherish the happy times we shared -- in those carefree days as teenagers and later as retirees!

Vina did what few do - she left this world better than she found it; she had purpose; and she made time for those she loved. We're poorer for losing her.
