Scope and Content
Collection consists of papers collected by Vera Jackson Pel related to her time as a clerk at the Royal Bank in Burnaby.
History
Vera Jackson’s parents Harold Joseph Jackson and Florence Colocott married in 1925 and bought a brown, wooden, shingled house at 3507 Booth Avenue, Burnaby, in 1926. Vera Rose Jackson was born at Mrs. Scott’s private hospital on Kingsway near Central Park on December 4, 1927. Her brother Ronald Harold Jackson was born on June 21, 1929. In 1934, the family moved to 2706 Cassie Avenue (later renumbered 6457). Vera attended Miss Edith Hall’s Kindergarten on Grange Street until she was old enough to enter Kingsway West as a grade one student. The family were members of the West Burnaby United Church and Vera and her brother Ron both went to Sunday school in the old Church basement. Vera attended Burnaby South High School where she met her future husband, Fred Pel. They married on April 13, 1951, and had four sons, David, Fred (Elsie), Jon (Nancy), Al (Steffany), and an adopted daughter, Angela. Vera and Fred faithfully attended First Christian Reformed Church. Vera was active in the church, leading Bible studies, as well as teaching ESL. Her students appreciated her and stayed in touch for many years. She also took on the role of archivist to help document the church's history. In 1944, Vera started a job at the Royal Bank in Burnaby. Besides the manager and the accountant, the entire staff at the branch were young women fresh out of school, as the men had left to serve during World War II. She worked at the Royal Bank from 1944 until 1952. During her time as clerk, she witnessed two armed robberies, one in May of 1946 and the other in January of 1948. Vera passed away on July 16, 2023.
