SASKATCHEWAN - Regina - Miscellaneous Obits from the Leader-Post - 3

Posted By: GenealogyBuff.com
Date: Wednesday, 21 October 2009, at 1:09 p.m.

HOAG - Violet Margaret (Jackie) Hoag passed away peacefully on Monday, November 6, 2000 at the age of 89 years with family at her side. Jackie was predeceased by her husband John in 1964. She is survived by her 3 daughters - Marilyn Good, Helen Patricia Phelps and Sunny Yenser, as well as 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Born September 11, 1911 at Sydney, Mb., Jackie was a driving force behind many institutions within the city of Regina. Jackie is a past president of Old Fashion Foods, a business she founded after her husband died, and one, which has expanded to include stores throughout the province. But more significantly, she has bettered the lives of thousands by her years of unpaid work for others, not only on a grand scale but also in small, private acts of selfless devotion to friends and strangers alike. She was the first woman in Canada to be chairman of a city planning commission, and vice-chairman of a provincial zoning appeal board. She headed a campaign to introduce low-rental housing to Regina, and was the driving force behind the establishment of Pioneer Village, Hewitt Place and Mutchmore Lodge. She spearheaded a petition to upgrade the quality of public television and presented it to then Prime Minister Lestor Pearson. On another occasion she flew directly to Ottawa to obtain a commitment from the federal minister of highways to build a by-pass on the new Trans-Canada Highway, and thus divert heavy traffic from Victoria Avenue. As a board member of the National Council of Women she carried out a study that resulted in a federal resolution requesting voting privileges for native people; she organized the board of directors of the Harrow de Groot School and set up financing; she helped organize the John Howard Society and acted as a counselor for female offenders; she was the first president of the Mental Health Association, Regina Branch and helped organize their first rehabilitation center. Jackie's family would like to thank the staff at Glendalough Care Home for the love and devotion given the last years of Jackie's life. Funeral service will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 11, 2000 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 550 Sangster Blvd., Bishop Gordon Thomson officiating. Interment will follow in Riverside Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers (due to allergies) those who wish may make a donation to the United Way of Regina, 2022 Halifax St., Regina, SK.
