passed away peacefully

on August 14, 2007 at the

age of 93. She is sadly

missed and lovingly

remembered by all whose

lives she touched including

her three children: sons:

Jolyon (Sandra) Hallows

of Burnaby, B.C., Nicholas

(Beverley) Bloomfield

of Penticton, B.C., and

daughter, Christine (Glenn)

Reinke of Vanderhoof,

B.C.; five grandchildren,

seven great grandchildren

as well as numerous nieces

and nephews. Murlis had

a remarkable life surviving

two world wars. She was

born in Burma in 1914 and

moved with her family to

England at the end of World

War 1 where she received all

her schooling and in 1937

married Eric Hallows who

sadly predeceased her in

October of 1940. She then

married Paul Bloomfield in

1944 and moved to Canada

as a war bride in August of

1946 settling in Prince George,

B.C. then moving to Fort St.

James, B.C. in 1947 until 1991

when she and Paul moved to

Penticton, B.C where Paul

sadly predeceased her in

November of 1991. She loved

her music and played the organ

for her church through most of

her years in Fort St. James. She

also loved to sit and gaze out

the window at the world going

by whether it was from the

window of the house or from

the car traveling down the road

as long as she was warm. A
