Alexandra 'Johnny' Weiler; 1955-2020
Born and raised just above the tideline in Whaletown, Johnny's love of the sea led her to choose a career as a sailor. She lived for many years in Kaslo, BC and eventually settled outside Blind River, Ontario, but her working life was spent aboard freighters on the Great Lakes, along the Eastern seaboard, and deep sea.
Ever the West coast girl at heart, when she retired she moved to Texada Island.
Johnny passed away peacefully at home, with family by her side.
She is survived by sisters Cris, Brigid and Sarah, loving stepchildren Colin, Graeme, and Fiona, and grandchildren Connor, Hudson and Parker.
She is also much missed by her many neices nephews.
