Elizabeth Madge Hine (known to all as Madge or Mini) aged 85, passed away on Wednesday March 14th at the Airedale Nursing Home in Bedford, England, where she had lived for the last three years. Madge was born in Victoria, British Columbia on July 18, 1932 to Allan and Nancy Pendray. As a youngster Madge was an accomplished horsewoman, winning many competitions on her horse, Rex. She attended Oak Bay High School and UBC and then spent a year travelling in Europe in 1955. During that time she met her future husband, Jeremy Hine, an Englishman, whom she married in 1957. Madge and Jeremy settled first in Colchester, England before moving back to Victoria in 1959 with their eldest son, Mark. They went on to have a further three sons, Terence, Robin and Phillip, before returning to the UK in 1975 and settling at The Old Rectory in Buckinghamshire where they lived for the next 35 years. Madge kept a holiday home (known to all as 'Camp') in Deep Cove, which her father built in 1945, and she visited whenever she could. The house was the scene for many happy family holidays spent crabbing, swimming and fishing in the waters around the area. Madge was a wonderful home-maker, terrific cook, accomplished bridge player and an all-round kind person. She was also a proud grandmother to 11 grandchildren. Madge will be cremated and her ashes spread in the waters off the beach at Camp. Published in The Times Colonist from Mar. 16 to Mar. 17, 2018
