Inez Margaret FARR (née Brown)

December 24, 1924 – November 15, 2008

Inez passed away peacefully at Victoria General Hospital in her 84th year with her daughter and son at her side.

Inez was born in Liverpool and met her late husband Jim Armstrong in the servicemen’s dances in Liverpool during WWII. As a young war bride she followed her husband in 1946 to Hamilton and then Toronto and Scarborough where they raised their family. In 1989, the opportunity to share the lives of their two granddaughters, Kathyrn and Autumn and their parents, Carol and Noel Fowles, attracted them to Salt Spring Island. Here they made many new friends and found a lifestyle and communities they enjoyed. Inez’ gregariousness and organizing abilities found new homes and opportunities in the Trail and Nature Club, quilting groups, the Altar Guild and congregation of All Saints Anglican Church.

In 1994, Inez married Tony Farr and they moved their two households together on Castle Cross Road.

Inez is also lovingly remembered by her big brother Norval Brown and his wife Dot of Liverpool, England, her son Bruce Armstrong of Toronto, her daughter Carol and husband Noel Fowles, her granddaughters Autumn Fowles, Kathyrn Fowles and her husband Roland Flutet of Lyon, France and niece, nephews and other relatives in Napanee, Vancouver, Brisbane (Australia), Toronto, Brampton, Thunder Bay and Edinburgh (Scotland).

A memorial service will be held at All Saints by the Sea Anglican Church, Ganges, on Saturday, November 22 at 2:00 p.m. with a reception in the church hall following the service.

Donations to the charity of your choice or the Canadian Red Cross Society are appreciated.
