Maj would be the first to forgive me for forgetting to comment on her sad passing. I was busy chasing eagles at the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival when I heard the devastating news.
Few people have made such a positive impression on the conservation ethic of a community as Maj. She mobilized the masses for the benefit of all. Her pioneering efforts to maintain the Mountainaire Avian Rescue would be enough to accord her a memorable place in history. She interacted with everybody. She pioneered the Campbell River Bald Eagle Festival and spread the word of need and appreciation for these big predator-scavengers.
Many of us suffered with her as she lost her supportive husband a while back – and now we again suffer her sudden and unexpected disappearance. I will always remember her kind and inquisitive face – and encouragement to do more for raptors. Maj, you're loved and missed, but aliive in our hearts.
