Pat MacPherson, 89, on Aug. 28 in Burnaby. MacPherson was the traffic manager at CKNW-AM Vancouver for more than two decades. She had been working part-time at a local car dealership, but newly-widowed, was looking for full-time work when NW salesman George Garrett (better known for his time as a reporter with the station) told her about a job opening. MacPherson was with the station from 1968, up until her retirement in 1994. She succumbed to cancer just three days before her 90th birthday.
