Victoria Mary Currie (Fauteux)

December 23, 1949 - April 29, 2021

Tribute

With incredible sadness the family of Victoria (Vicki) Currie announce her passing at Surrey Memorial Hospital on April 29th, 2021 at 4:40 pm.  Vicki was born at Grace Hospital in Vancouver BC, on December 23rd, 1949.  She has joined her parents Paul and Laura Fauteux in heaven.  Vicki was the beloved wife of Melville Currie for 52 years, and their love and loyalty to each other over these five decades was truly inspiring.  Vicki was also the mother of Lisa Woo (Bobby) and Chris Currie (Breanna), and the very proud and loving grandmother of Joshua, Justine, Kylie (Zack) and Megan.  Vicki also leaves to mourn, three siblings, Linda McKee (Garrett), Paul Fauteux, Jim Fauteux (Wendy), their amazing children and extended families.

Our family wanted to acknowledge the wonderful care provided by the Physicians and clinical staff on Pod 2 of the ICU at Surrey Memorial Hospital.  They were so very caring and supportive, but also informative and realistic.  While the information we received was largely poor from the out-set, they consistently delivered the messages in a compassionate way throughout Vicki’s stay.  We are so grateful and very aware that these staff are working through such a challenging time that has lasted for many months and we wanted to acknowledge how impactful they were on our whole family.

During this time of sorrow, we reflect on the impression that Vicki left on her friends and family across the country.  While Vicki spent the majority of her life in the Lower Mainland, she also spent twelve years in Hamilton, Ontario.  We are truly appreciative of all the wishes, condolences and reflections that we have heard from all of the people closest to her.  While it came as no surprise, it was abundantly clear as soon as Vicki was hospitalized, just how much she was loved by so many.  With those that she knew best, the bonds were immense and that was crystal clear.

Vicki was brave and inspiring and after fighting her way through the polio pandemic early in her life, which came with significant ailments and long-term effects, she kept her head up and made no excuses.  Together Mel and Vicki worked through every complexity that the world had to offer and they responded by creating an incredible life together for their family.  Vicki had so much concern, joy and pride for her four grand-children and she was never shy about sharing the good news to all those with whom she connected.

In addition to her family life, Vicki was a valued employee of McMaster Hospital in Hamilton, before working at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver and then as a Home Care Services provider in Richmond.  The common thread was Vicki helping people in any way she could.  Eventually Vicki took up volunteering at the Surrey Firefighters Community Thrift Store, and really enjoyed being part of that great group of people.

If you knew Vicki well, you knew that she always had a twinkle in her eye, and that started as a child attending Vancouver’s Catholic High School for Girls, Little Flower Academy.  She had many stories of “run-ins with the nuns” and loved to tell them.  She had a quick wit about her, that quite often had more than a “hint” of sarcasm.  She loved to shock people with her humour and as her life evolved she became quick to stand up for herself and her family. Vicki was loved in the complex where Mel and her lived for the past 10 years and we would be remiss if we did not mention the casino tours and impromptu visits that she would arrange for her friends and neighbors.

Rest in Peace, Vicki.  No one has ever deserved that more.

My deepest condolence for Mel, Lisa, Chris and grandchildren. Vicki had such a wonderful spirit, and I remember her most clearly when we were all young. Our families would meet at special times at our grandmother’s home in Kitsilano on West 8th Avenue. That was long before the busyness of life and growing up took over. Fast forward to the present, and we had been exchanging Christmas cards in recent years, and I was looking forward to visiting Vicki and Mel after the pandemic was over. I will be out to visit you Mel when our normal world returns. Lots of love and support for the whole family. Alan & Liya
