Cynthia June DAVIE’S


JUNE Slipped quietly

away from us during the

early morning hours of

Friday, July 13, 2007. She is

survived by her only son

Chuck (Marit) Davies, a

granddaughter Christine

(Steve), 2 greatgrandchildren

Mica and Jorden, and

grandson Michael (Alesha).

Cynthia dearly loved

her brother Dick Manwaring

and her nieces and

nephews, most of whom

reside in Vanderhoof, B.C.

or England. Cynthia, who

acquired the name “GG”

when Mica was born,

was a truly wonderful

musician and teacher who

actively taught piano and

voice for 67 years, having

graduated the Royal Academy

of Music in England

in 1940. Coming to Canada

after the War, the family

eventually settled in Vanderhoof

B.C., where “GG”,

as dining-room cook and

manager, delighted many

guests of the Vanderhoof

Hotel with her culinary

skills, in addition to teaching

piano and fulfi lling the

role of founder and coordinator

for many annual

Music Festivals. In 1978

she moved to Westbank to

be close to family, where

she continued to teach and

again played a pivotal part

in the continued health

of Music Festivals in the

Kelowna area. In recent

years she had been a

valued volunteer teacher/

helper at Johnson Bentley

Pool. “GG” had so many

friends, there is no doubt

she will be sorely missed.

No funeral service by

request. Condolences
