The year’s at the spring
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hill-side’s dew-pearled
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in his Heaven –
All’s right with the world!
by Robert Browning
Pippa’s love, kindness and understanding were pure and shone brightest in her devotion to her beloved children.
The career Pippa chose at Family Services in Campbell River allowed her the opportunity to share her wisdom, compassion and unconditional respect of others in giving her support to her community’s young mothers.
Her brilliant wit and passion for life was known to all who were blessed by her presence.
The battle with leukemia was tremendous and she had many victories. She stood with courage, strength and incredible grace.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to the doctors and nursing staff at VGH, The BC Cancer Agency and Victoria’s Palliative Response Team for their kind and caring support. Thank you to Dr. Neil McKinney and Dr. Clayton Smith for recognizing Pippa’s gift as a teacher.
