Death Café returns to Okanagan - Summerland Review

Saturday, March 02, 2019

This year the Okanagan Regional Libraries in Kelowna, Vernon and Summerland are making their spaces available on Saturday or Sunday afternoons to host Death Café. The next cafe takes place at the Vernon library on Sunday, Feb. 24 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. As of the start of 2019, 7,520 Death Cafes have been offered in 63 countries since September 2011. At a Death Cafe, people, often strangers, gather to drink tea or coffee and discuss death. Death Cafes are an opportunity to have an honest and respectful conversation about death. They are a group-directed, confidential discussion of death with no expectations, no agendas and no judgments. A Death Cafe is not a grief support or counseling session. See: The Okanagan Death Café returns for another season The Death Cafe model was developed by Jon Underwood and Sue Barsky Reid, based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz. The aim of the movement is "to increase awareness of death with a view of helping people make the most of their (finite) lives." Underwood maintained that the world would be a better place if people dealt with their fear of dying: "Life and death are interdependent. The best preparation for death is to have a great life.

Jackson Bertie Moore - Summerland Review

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Mar 6, 2018Jackson Bertie Moore passed away on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 in Summerland, BC. Predeceased by his father K.C. Moore in 1989, Jackie will be remembered by his mother Elaine, sisters Linda (John), Jane, Trudy (Bob), brother Steve (Arleen), and special sister Sue (Tom) Kelly; also by niece Ali (Chris) and nephews Drew (Tara), T.J. (Kari), and Brett (Lauren) and their children.Jack left this world as he had lived, totally in charge of his domain. He had an active life in Northern Ontario of biking, snowmobiling, fishing, and family fun. This was followed by years in Summerland, where interests included art, music, swimming, mini golf, and bowling. Always the center of attention, Jackie was blessed to have been constantly surrounded and cared for by a cadre of loved ones and the community at large. His strength and determination allowed him to carve out a full life for himself when it was not always obvious that there would be one. Jack’s attempts to cope with and conquer the hand life dealt him taught us all the real meaning of a blessing.It was an h...

Seniors prefer funeral to lifestyle planning - Salmon Arm Observer

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Don Henke, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care franchise serving Kelowna, West Kelowna, Penticton, Peachland, Summerland and Okanagan Falls.“Unfortunately, many people do not consider that as we age, we need extra care. While the vast majority of seniors prefer to age at home, they may not realize the range of options available to them, and that this time in their lives requires planning, too.”Related:Poll finds retirement plan top financial priority According to Canadian Association of Retired Persons, 93 per cent of seniors in Canada live at home and want to stay there as long as possible. Despite this fact, Home Instead found that only 74 per cent of seniors have shared their wishes with their adult children.Jay Branton, managing director of Dignity Memorial in Eastern Canada, explains that one barrier to planning is the discomfort the conversation brings to seniors and their adult children.“These conversations are uncomfortable but very important to have,” said Branton. “Start by asking your loved one some simple questions around end-of-life to see where their mind is at. This usually sparks a broader conversation and gets them thinking.”According to the Home Instead survey, aging parents are far more comfortable discussing plans for their own final years (89 per cent) than their adult children are discussing their parents’ plans (68 per cent).“It sounds contradictory, but end of life planning is something that can start far in advance of a senior loved ones’ final years,” said Brian Burlacoff, financial advisor at Sun Life Financial. “Having conversations early on and putting a plan in place now will relieve stress on both aging loved ones and caregivers down the road when the final years do arrive.”To help start the conversatio...

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Auntie Ellen.' Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre. White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate." She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program. "She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday. White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre. "I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity." Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
