Born Aug 16, 1953 in Vancouver BC; died peacefully Jan 13, 2011. A lover of nature, nothing brought greater joy to Chris’ heart than being in her garden with the birds and frogs. In her free moments Chris played the piano, flute or harp, and paddled with her dragon boat team on Cowichan Bay. Chris was an exceptional mother, loving sister and daughter, and devoted friend. She is survived by her sons Kevin and Alistair Brogan and daughter Gwyneth Born; her sister Susan, brother Jonathan, and father Maurice. The family extends special thanks to Doctors Trottershaw and Norgrove, and all the nurses, support staff, and volunteers who cared for Chris at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. A memorial gathering will be held at 1927 Barrett Drive, North Saanich on Feb 12 at one pm. Donations can be made in her memory to Somenos Marsh Open Air Classroom project.
