Anne Sinclair - Lynden Tribune

Friday, June 2, 2017

After the war, Anne attended the University of Toronto, where she would meet her husband, Jim Sinclair.  Together, Anne and Jim raised three sons, lived in Toronto, North Bay, Victoria, Vancouver, Castlegar, Winnipeg (all in Canada) and Buffalo, before settling in Lynden in 1991. Anne was a devoted mother, a lover of literature, symphonic music, opera, vigorous debate and travel, especially to the United Kingdom, where Jim and Anne would visit dear friends and relatives. We are all richer for Anne’s candor, love, feistiness and passion for her family and friends. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, May 12, in Gillies Funeral Home of Lynden. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Mount Baker Rotary in Anne’s name. Arrangements are entrusted to Gillies Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Lynden.Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Military funeral planned in British Columbia for U.S. airman killed during Second World War bombing run - Ottawa Citizen

Thursday, August 18, 2016

Second World War bomber Hunconscious were last heard from on Dec. 23, 1944. On Saturday, Honeyman’s remains will be escorted from a DNA testing facility in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to the airport in Castlegar, B.C., where they will be met with a formal receiving line and ceremony. The funeral, with a 21-gun salute and Honeyman’s family attending, will be held in Trail, B.C., on Monday. “It is just wonderful,” said Honeyman’s cousing, Marnie Matthews of Trail. “All of our lives, we never knew what happened to him.” The Hunconscious, a B-26 Marauder, with Honeyman at the ready to drop one of the 450-kilogram bombs it was carrying, was a member of the 599th Bombardment Squadron in a group called the Bridge Busters. During one of the coldest winters Belgium and France had seen, most of the planes were grounded while Adolf Hitler’s armies launched an offensive later named the Battle of the Bulge. The battle was at its turning point when Honeyman’s plane and another, Bank Nite Betty, took off with the mission to destroy a vital rail bridge in Eller, Germany. Neither plane made it back to base. Six years ago, a hiker named Helmut Deitrichs found a small fragment of Honeyman’s flying jacket in the Belgian mountains. He called his friend Danny Keay, a U.S. Army intelligence professional who searches for plane crash sites as a hobby. Honeyman’s army identification number and initials were still visible on the scrap of fabric, beginning a years-long process of excavation and identification.
