About Trish McMordie
by Allan McMordie
Trish loved to read. She always had at least two books on the go at one time, a couple books from the library and one or two on her e-reader.
She spent much of her life teaching kids how to read and to also love reading.
She would read a chapter book to our kids at breakfast every morning as an incentive for them to get up and get to the table. Both of them are avid readers today.
Trish is the only person I knew who had her library card number memorized. I know she had a special exemption on her card that allowed her to take out more than three books on one subject at a time. Trish would have at least a dozen books from the library in her classroom at Larson School that shared a common theme with what she was teaching at the time. Many North Vancouver children learned to love books and reading in Mrs. McMordie's classroom.
Trish died from a brain tumour in October of 2013. It is fitting that in her memory, the staff and families at Larson School and Trish's other friends and family have started the Trish McMordie Memorial Fund at the North Vancouver District Library. In 2014, the first piece of furniture- the Sit and Play Snake- was installed and has since been enjoyed by many children visiting the library.
