A Celebration of Life is planned for Jen Budding, who passed away on December 8, at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 21, 2019 at Shawnigan Lake School, 1975 Renfrew Road. Celebration will take place in the chapel, with reception to follow in the Marian Hall.

Field hockey community members attending are asked to bring their field hockey stick to the service. There will be a place to leave them at the chapel. The van Dyk Family have asked for the field hockey community to form an honour guard with their sticks as the hearse carries Jen from the chapel to the private burial. The honour guard will take place after the service and before the reception.

Ali Baggott will hand out a special sticker for your stick in honour of Jen Budding (van Dyk) and you can get the sticker at the service. More will be available for those unable to attend the service.

Condolences may be offered online at In lieu of flowers, donations in Jennifer’s memory may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (
