    • Mrs. Bellerose Called by Death

      Chilliwack's only centenarian, Mrs. Elizabeth Bellerose, who as a 17•year-old girl saw Canada become a nation, died at her home at Bellerose station Thursday at the age of 102.

      Honored not only because of her years, but because of her enduring kindliness and neighborly qualities as well, Mrs. Bellerose had lived in the community for some 60 years. She was born at Dufferin's Creek, Ont., on July 3, 1850, and came to British Columbia as the 25year-old wife of the late George Bellerose.

      Born Elizabeth Vincent at the tiny community 20 miles from Toronto, she spent her girlhood on the Bay of Quinte, neat Bellville. At the age of 21, she went to Owen Sound where she married George Bellerose. They came to British Columbia four years later.

      They lived briefly on Lulu and Weston Islands before coming to Chilliwack.

      "I was living in East Chilliwack in the flood of 1894," Mrs. Bellerose recalled, on her 98th birthday in 1948. "I had three families in my house then. During the high water period in 1936 I had three families in my house here, and in the 1948 flood I again had three families."

      The Bellerose family lived in East Chilliwack about four years before moving to Bellerose station.

      Her husband predeceased her in 1918.

      Mrs. Bellerose remained active until only a few months before her death. At the time of her one hundredth birthday, she received tributes from city and municipal officials and a telegram of congratulations from the late King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

      Of her nine children, Mrs. Bellerose is survived by her four sons, Vincent, Ernest, George and Gordon, all of Sardis. She also leaves eight grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

      Rev. R. A. Redman, former minister of Chilliwack United church and now pastor of First United church, Vancouver, officiated at the funeral services Monday at Henderson's chapel.

      Interment was in the family plot at the IOOF cemetery.

      Pallbearers were Ted Bellerose, Walter W. McConnell, George Bassette, grandsons, and Birnie Allison, J. C. Ferguson and Paul Corcoran, grandsons-in-law.
