Jennifer Mapplebeck (1938 – 2015)
The arts council has been deeply saddened by the sudden passing of one of its tireless volunteers, Jennifer Mapplebeck, on Wednesday April 8, 2015. Among her many responsibilities was serving on the Board of Directors for over a decade, rental agent for the Quail ‘s Nest Arts Centre, Community Christmas Concert committee, and Nominations committee. She also served as the representative for the South Okanagan Amateur Players (member group). She quietly offered her service by cleaning the centre, putting up posters, and countless other thankless jobs that simply “needed doing”.
A memorial service will be held at 3:00 P.M. on Saturday April 18, 2015 at St. Edward’s Anglican Church, 5954 Nicola Street, Oliver, BC (corner of Fairview & Nicola). A reception at the Seventh -day Adventist Church next door will follow.
Our condolences to Jennifer’s husband Brian, daughters Celia and Kathryn, and their families.
