        History

        Hester Emily White, the eldest daughter of Judge J. C. Haynes, was born in Osoyoos 25 April 1877. In 1888, on his way home from the coast, Judge Haynes was taken ill and died at the Allison Ranch near Princeton. Mrs. Haynes took the children to Victoria for a period of time and then to England to complete their education. On their return, when Hester was approximately 17 years of age, financial problems necessitated the selling of the ranch and the family moved to White Rock. In 1897 Hester married C. A. Lambly, government agent at Osoyoos. In 1898, the government offices were moved to Fairview. Mr. Lambly died suddenly of pneumonia, and Hester and her two boys, Wilfred, and C.A.R. went to live on the Lambly ranch at Peachland. In 1908 she married Dr. R.B. White, who had recently moved his practice from Fairview to Penticton. Two more sons were born, Bill and Jack. In Penticton, Hester was a charter member of the Women’s Institute, and the IODE, served on the school board, and was a member of the Children’s Aid Society. She aided in establishing a cottage hospital in Penticton and contributed to the success of the Okanagan Historical Society. Hester died in Penticton in 1963.
