Former Guild member, Marina Belanger passed away at the end of April. She was a member of the Guild from 2014 to 2018 , during which time she was the Block of the Month coordinator for a year and won a ribbon in the 2016 Quilt Show for her turquoise bag made of Jelly Roll strips wound around cotton cord. At the Mexican Christmas party, she was part of the ukulele duet. Marina was an avid sewer with her latest interest being clothing pattern making. Marina and I joined the Guild the same day and she became my first friend after moving to BC. She was always ready to take me fabric shopping. Marina leaves her daughter Sylvie, son Paul, granddaughter Roma, her mother and sister.
There will be a memorial occasion when the future permits. Anyone who would like to attend please let me know.
With a heavy heart, Betty Varto
