Rosemary Meyer was a past president of the BCKA many years ago, her son, Lucas contacted us the other day to inform us of her passing.

Rosemary Margaret Meyer, age 81, passed away peacefully June 13 at Fairhaven United Church Home, Vancouver, BC. Predeceased by her loving husband, John, survived by her children and their partners, Lucas Meyer and Susan Weber; and Monica and David Hinch, she will be remembered for her wit and many interests. As Divisional Chair at VCC (late 70’s) she established the HomeFront Program, which helps new Canadian homemakers learn English. She was also a renown kite enthusiast and a BC Kite Flyers past president. A service will be held at 2 PM on July 13, 2013 at St. John’s Shaughnessy Anglican Church, 1490 Nanton Avenue, Vancouver, BC. The family wishes to thank the staff of Fairhaven for their devoted care.
