With broken hearts, deep sorrow and wonderful memories, the family of Vicki Dawn Cann announce her sudden and unexpected passing on January 13th, 2017 Born in Singapore, Vicki was the daughter of Donald and Margaret Anne Cann, Blacketts Lake. She will be sadly missed by her parents, her loving husband, Brian Redford, her children Benjamin and Maggy, her sisters Velma Vos (Jeroen) Hunter River PEI, and Virginia Gingras (Ray) Horseshoe Valley, Ontario, and brother Jonathan (Crissy Petrella) Halifax. She is also survived by her in-laws, Dale and Nancy Redford, Grand Forks BC, her brother in-law Jim (Melissa) Redford) Edmonton, Alberta and sister in-law Carolyn Rogers (Garret) Vancouver, BC.
