101-year-old North Van resident celebrates birthday with visit from daughter

The rainy weather led to a rather subdued Canada Day earlier this week, but that didn’t stop at least one North Vancouver resident from celebrating her 101st birthday.

June Argyle, a resident at Cedarview Lodge in Lynn Valley, celebrated her centenary-plus-one on July 1.

Perhaps most special about June’s big day was that she was visited by her daughter, Phyllis Argyle, the first time the pair have been able to visit one another since COVID-19 restrictions were imposed on long-term care facilities and retirement residences back in March.

Since the B.C. government announced recently that scheduled visits to long-term care homes free of novel coronavirus outbreaks would be allowed again starting this month, residents at Cedarview Lodge who are being visited by a family member can meet in a physically-distant outdoor shelter setting.

Birthday gifts were sanitized before June was allowed to receive them.

“It was a subdued but happy occasion,” stated Phyllis, in an emailed statement.
