  In Memoriam

Vesla Hailey

Vesla Hailey (1943-2007) worked at UBC Press from 2000 until her retirement from UBC in 2003. She was a conscientious and efficient secretary to the Director, and a warm and wonderful colleague to all at the Press.

Vesla was born in Oban, Scotland, where her father, a captain in the Royal Norwegian Air force, was stationed. After his death near the end of World War 2, Vesla and her mother returned to Oslo; when Vesla was 8 they moved to Canada, and stayed. Apart from a period in California, Vesla lived in Vancouver until her untimely death from Hodgkin's lymphoma. She is survived by her husband, Al, and her children Eric and Marika, stepchildren Alfred and Marina, and other relatives in Canada, Norway, and Sweden.
