9 Sept, 1949 – 21 Aug, 2010

Mickey passed away in the early hours of August 21, 2010 from liver cancer. She is survived by Jackie, her partner of 23 years, and her chosen family of friends. She lived the time following her diagnosis with a grace and courage that was inspirational to those around her.

Despite the violence and other challenges of her childhood, Mickey grew to become a warm and loving adult with a great sense of humour, a deep spirituality and a strong commitment to her friendships.

Mickey was born in Souris, Manitoba and attended the University of Regina, graduating in 1972 with an Education degree. She taught high school in Regina and worked as a manager for BC Housing in Vancouver before attending the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 1987. She practiced as a Registered Massage Therapist in Vancouver and on Salt Spring Island until 2006 – work that she loved and for which she had an amazing gift. She retired to Victoria in 2006.

At her request, there will be no funeral. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in her memory to the Victoria Hospice Foundation.
