AILSA RUTH PEARSE (Dickson)

Born Jan. 29, 1933 to Ruth and George Dickson. Ailsa passed away on Oct 3 at Vancouver General Hospital. Ailsa spent her happiest years on the Pacific Coast and was firmly rooted to her home on Salt Spring Island. Predeceased by her parents, brother Ron, and partner Glen Smith, she will be lovingly remembered by her children Grant (Tracey) and Jane (Paul), her four grandchildren, her partner Walton Langford, brother Dave (Babe), and her many friends and extended family. Ailsa’s life was built on a strong foundation of love of family and nature. She revelled in her garden, kayak, biking and hiking adventures. Her curiosity of other places took her on many trips, near and far. Ailsa was a driving force in her community, active in the Trail and Nature Club, nature and land conservancies, and the Paddlers group among others. A celebration of her life will be held at Ailsa’s home on November 12, 1-5 pm. Donations in memory of Ailsa can be made to the Salt Spring Island Conservancy.
