Myrtle Phylis (Billick) Bunes

Feb 10, 1921 – Nov 16, 2009

Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Myrtle quietly went to sleep Monday, Nov 16th at 10:30 am in St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox after suffering a heart attack on Thursday the 12th of Nov. Myrtle was predeceased by her husband Steve Billick, her father Herman Benjamin Lubie, her mother Winfred Lubie, and her sister Irene. Myrtle was survived by her only remaining sister Dora, other family and friends and her beloved cats Ziggy and Phoebe. Myrtle had many hobbies during her lifetime. She loved birds, raising poodles, doing crafts, sewing, knitting, going fishing, and much more. She always had one or two dogs or cats around her. In her later years she loved reading, gardening and learning computer skills. She was presently enrolled in a computer course at North Island College. A memorial service took place at the Courtenay Fellowship Baptist Church, 2963 Lake Trail Road on Monday Nov 30th. As she requested, Myrtle’s wish to be cremated and laid to rest alongside her father and husband in Prince George will be honored in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to our local SPCA in memory of Myrtle. May she rest in peace.
