Letter: Chant memories appreciated

Dear Editor,

Pauline Chant was the wife of Peter Chant and the mother of Mike, Margaret, Peter, Mary (Kathleen), Debbie, Danny and Patrick.

She died Feb. 1 at the age of 91, and her obituary appeared in the Feb. 20 edition of the Langley Advance.

Our family moved to Langley in 1964 and my parents moved back to Winnipeg in the early 1980s.  

Peter worked at CJJC radio as a news announcer and later at Langley Centennial Museum in Fort Langley as assistant curator.  

In the 15 or so years that our family lived in Langley, we came to know many people, and if anyone has memories of my mother and father and would like to share them with me, I welcome them.  

I have often thought of the many friends we made in the Langley area, and still miss “our hometown.”

If you have any recollections that you would like to share, please write to:  

Kathleen Tucker, Box 24, RR1, Ship Cove, NL, AOK 4J0. Or email goodmeasure@hotmail.com.

Kathleen Tucker (Mary Chant), Ship Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador
