Innkeeper Nancy Margaret Fry
Suddenly, on June 5, 2006 at the Victoria General Hospital, Nancy passed away at the age of 55 years. She was predeceased by her parents, Hattie in 1985 and David in 1991. She is lovingly remembered by her husband and best friend Barry Rinas; step-daughters Susan (Scott) Baird and Sarah Rinas; brothers Alan (Gail) Fry and Tim Fry; mother-in-law Alice Rinas; sisters-in-law Helen (Tim) Tabor, Susan (Russell) Cameron, Lorna Wells, Dona-Lee (Roy) Valliers, and Sandra (Allan) Rinas; brothers-in-law Steven Rinas and Daniel Rinas; two nieces, Mary and Elizabeth Fry; as well as numerous other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Nancy was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and graduated in Nursing as an RN from Vancouver General Hospital and followed her studies to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at UBC. Nancy traveled extensively throughout the world, including a six month stint working in an Israeli Kibbutz, and enjoying life immensely. One of the many goals Nancy accomplished was a cross country bicycle ride to the Montreal Olympics. The highlight of her life was meeting her future husband Barry. She was seconded as the Medical Officer on the Martha L. Black, a Coast Guard Ice Breaker where Barry was the Senior Engineer. Their love blossomed and, after a 2nd voyage which circumnavigated North America, Nancy returned to her senior federal government position, working with First Nations. Upon her retirement, Nancy and Barry opened the Wayward Navigator B&B which they operated until her untimely death. Nancy was known for her tremendous generosity and her infectious smile.
A celebration of Nancy’s Life will be held as a potluck dinner on Saturday, June 17, 2006 at 2:00 p.m. at the Wayward Navigator B&B, 337 Damon Dr., Victoria.
