History/Biography
Kay Rorison North was one of the twin daughters of Burnaby pioneers carpenter William Rorison and his wife Alma Cropley Rorison. Kay and her twin sister Evelyn were nine months old when the family; she and her twin, her parents and two older brothers Bill and Hugh moved to Burnaby in 1922 (the youngest, John, was still to arrive). Her grandmother, Matilda Louise Cropley, bought three acres of land on Marine Drive (then called River Road) in South Burnaby. William Rorison built two houses on that property; one for his family and six years later one for his wife's mother (who was widowed by this time). They built a barn on the property and kept cows, goats and the occasional pig. Her father built wooden toys for the children - even board games. The children enjoyed having their grandmother Cropley living so close to them while they were growing up, especially when they were teenagers and she would have them over for dinner. Kay Rorison went to Riverway West School with thirty-one other children, grades one to four together in the one-room school house. She also attended Sunday school at Riverway mission for eight years and taught it there for another fifteen. Kay Rorison North and her husband Doug have two daughters.
