Janice de Cunha Obituary
Janice De Cunha: CBA Pioneer PassesSept. 6, 2016
A founding member of the Cordova Bay Association for Community Affairs who served on the executive committee in the first decade of this century has died.
Janice de Cunha was among those who rallied community support to get the CBA going in 1976 when 700 residents turned up for the founding meeting in Claremont Secondary School. What precipitated public concern was a planned subdivision that would have covered what later became Cordova Bay Golf Course. Janice is mentioned in Anne Pearson’s history of Cordova Bay “Sea-Life: Recollections and History of Cordova Bay and Elk Lake” (Greater Victoria Public Library).
A retired social worker, Janice served on the CBA board of directors between 2006 and 2010 as membership secretary, second vice-president and acting first vice-president. She was also on the executive board of Coast Capital Credit Union. She died on Aug. 12 and a celebration of life will be held at her home, 4979 Cordova Bay Road, on Sunday Sept. 18 at 1:30 p.m.
