It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my wife, Marion Elizabeth Pryhitko, (nee Grey) on Sunday June 09, 2013 at Hillside Village, Salmon Arm, BC.

Beth was born in Vancouver, BC on September 08, 1928 to Harold and Dorothy Grey.

Her younger years were spent in Alberta. Upon graduation she attended Victoria Normal school and began her teaching career which spanned for 35 years. She began teaching in Pritchard and continued this work in various locations including Marion Schilling Elementary School in Kamloops for 20 years.

Her community work included the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Woman and the Delta Kappa Gamma International Society. Beth travelled worldwide for both these organisations.

She leaves to mourn her husband Matt; son Kelly Aulin (Mary), her grandchildren, brother Bill (Terry) and sisters Urayne and Viola, sisters-in-law Olga, Dorothy, Ann and numerous nieces and nephews.
