Bobbi Hunter - one of the founding members of Greenpeace, with her husband Bob -remembers her carefree childhood living in both Ioco and Anmore BC.
Hello Bobbi, I also grew up in Anmore, and I remember Mr. Pepper who owned the trout farm, my fondest memories are there in Anmore, I remember the Chat Family and The Nelson Family, my Dad Owen Worden dug a gigantic pond in front of our home and he built a walk way over the pond. My sister was Linda, and Nancy and brother Ronnie Worden, we lived there from the late 1940's to about 1960-my heart never left Anmore. We all attended Ioco Elem. and my sister Linda was May Queen, her friend was Susan Spooner. Would be wonderful to connect. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Hi Janice. I am sorry that I missed your note from a long time back. I am not a social media person. I just recently started to add people to my friend list because I wrote a book that will be out this spring. A book about my late husband Bob Hunter the founder of Greenpeace. So, Im trying to get the word out. It will be out April 18 and is titled Mr. Mindbomb. I remember your sister Linda very well as we were in the same grade and were friends. I even had one of my very rare sleep overs with Linda at your home as a very young teen.. It was a big event for me. I think I only ever went to about three sleep overs as a teen. I also remember the pond and the bridge over the pond at you home. That was special because it reminded me of our home in Ioco. My grandfather had that home before us and he also built a bridge over a creek in the back yard. I recall being a child and standing on that small bridge in Ioco dreaming of being a warrioress with wooden stick sword held high. Life was so wonderful and simple for us in those days. I have had an amazing and magically fulfilled life, but, I look at all the maddness that the new generation faces, global warming, covid, corrupt politics and failing health and education systems and I fear for my grandchildren. We certainly were born at the right time and right place. Please say hello to Linda. I recall Ronnie as well. Thanks again for the lovely note. BobbiReplyDelete
