Meta Ann Marie Bolster (Bovill)
January 23, 1945 – May 22, 2014
Meta was born in Smithers and except for a few years spent in Hazelton, lived here all her life. Her parents, William (Bill) Bovill of Ballyclare, County Antrim, Northern Ireland and Lorena Carr of Carr Ranch, Driftwood area (Smithers) were married in 1937 and had two children – Jack (deceased July 16, 2012) and Meta. On April 24, 1965, Meta married Barney Bolster of Humboldt, Saskatchewan. Together they raised three sons.
Before she retired, Meta was a hairdresser, managing Clip and Curl for many years. Her customers all went to see her to get their hair done, but they stayed there for the company. She always made people feel welcome around her, and will be sadly missed by family and friends.
Meta is survived by her husband Barney, children Blair (Dana), Joe (Laura), and Jim; grandchildren Melissa, William (Kahley), Katelynn, Jeremy, Riley, Levi, and Jacob; and great grand-daughter Kodie.
The funeral was held on May 27 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Smithers. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice.
