Passing of Thelma Marjorie Gayton
Wife of the late LCol Douglas Gayton CD RCA
Not long past noon, at 1330 hrs, on Day 64 in VGH - where it all started in 1924, Mum found relief: to the end her feet were twitching as though on the dance floor with Dad. She missed her target of 13 January - 15 years absent Dad.
Niece Barbara Elizabeth & ‘adopted’ daughter Joanne, along with Yolanda’s daily case management, were instrumental throughout the journey.
Mum was born in VGH, raised in Kerrisdale, left for 21 years as a service spouse, kept her counsel during those latter postings, and relished working with Dad at Heath, and then through the Reform Party.
Mum requested no service; ashes to be with her parents in the Mausoleum; in lieu of flowers donations in support of the 15th Field Artillery Band via www.militarymusic.ca/ should you desire.
