Ines Judith Eleanor Johnston (Unger)

April 27, 1928 - March 9, 2016

Tribute

Ines Judith Eleanor Johnston (nee Unger) passed away peacefully on March 9, 2016 at Mountain Lake Senior Community in Nelson after a short illness.

Ines was born in Berlin, Germany April 27, 1928. After leaving Germany in 1933 Ines’ family settled in England where she finished her education at the University of London before following her parents to live in Toronto in the early fifties.  At that time Ines was a member of the Leslie Bell Singers and toured Eastern Canada and the United States.

In the early sixties the family moved to Ottawa where she worked with the Canadian Mental Health Association and later with the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services. Ines was active in the Anglican Church community in Ottawa and also served on different local Social Services advisory panels and boards. After retirement, Ines and David enjoyed travelling, particularly often to their beloved France. Ines moved to Nelson, B.C. in 2014 and will be fondly remembered by those she met at Mountain Lake Seniors Community and the cafes of Baker Street that she frequently visited.

Ines is pre-deceased by her soul mate David who she met and married in Toronto in 1953. She will be greatly missed by her four sons Michael (Michelle), Philip (Linda), Tom (Zina) and Ian (Stefanie) as well as her grandchildren, Svetlana, Dmitri, Matthew, Ian, Jean Michel, Mark and Julia and her great-grandson Atticus. All who knew her felt her compassion, wit and sense of humour. She was voracious reader and a talented knitter who was always willing to lend a hand no matter the task.

A private memorial was held in Nelson on March 11, 2016 and another will be held in Ottawa later in the year. Her family wishes to thank Dr. Janz and the staff at Mountain Lake for the compassionate and caring community that recently became her new home. For those who wish, donations to the Nature Conservancy of Canada, 36 Eglinton Ave West, Suite 400, Toronto, Ontario M4R 1A1.
