I, JOHANNA (JOANNA; JOANNE) GERRITDINA ROOS, presently of 778 Miller Avenue, Coquitlam, in the province of British Columbia, HEREBY REVOKE all former testamentary dispositions made by me and DECLARE this to be my Last Will and Testament.
I NOMINATE, CONSTITUTE AND APPOINT my husband, CORNELIS (NEIL) JOHANNES ROOS and my son RICHARD J. ROOS, and the survivor of them to be the Executors and Trustees of this my Will and I hereinafter refer to my said Executors and Trustees as “my Trustees.”
I GIVE, DEVISE AND BEQUEATH all of my property of every nature and kind and wheresoever situate, including any property over which I may have a general power of appointment, to my Trustees for the purposes following:
All of my estate, both real and personal, I GIVE, DEVISE AND BEQUEATH to my husband, CORNELIS (NEIL) JOHANNES ROOS, or if he should be no longer living, to my children RICHARD J. ROOS, CAROLINE J. MACLELLAN, STEVEN M. ROOS AND JEFFREY P. ROOS, equally.
To use their discretion in the realization of my estate, with power to my Trustees to sell, call in and convert into money at such time or times, in such manner and upon such terms, and either for cash or credit or for part cash or credit as my Trustees in their uncontrolled discretion may decide upon , or to postpone such conversion of my estate or any part or parts thereof for such length of times as they may think best, and I hereby declare that my Trustees may retain any portion of my estate in the form in which it may be at my death (notwithstanding that it may not be in the form of an investment in which trustees are authorized to invest trust funds, and whether or not there is a liability attached to any such portion of my estate) for such length of time as my said Trustees may in their discretion deem advisable and my Trustees shall not be held responsible for any loss that may happen to my estate by reason of so doing.
To pay out of the capital of my general estate my just debts, funeral and testamentary expenses and all succession duties, estate taxes and the like that may be payable in connection with my estate or any insurance on my life or any gift or benefit given or provided by me either in my lifetime or by survivorship or by this my Will or any Codicil thereto, to the end that the beneficiaries thereof shall receive and enjoy the same as though all such duties and taxes were ordinary debts of my estate.
I HEREBY DECLARE that my Trustees when making investments for my estate shall not be limited to investments authorized by law for trustees but may make any investments which in their uncontrolled discretion they consider advisable and my said Trustees shall not be liable for any loss that may happen to my estate in connection with any such investments made by them in good faith.
I AUTHORIZE AND EMPOWER my Trustees from time to time to borrow upon the security of all or any assets of my estate in such manner, on such terms and conditions, for such length of time and for such purposes, connected with my estate as my Trustees, in their sole and uncontrolled discretion, from time to time may think advisable in the best interest of my estate. My Trustees may borrow from any person or corporation, including any members of my family or any beneficiaries under this my will or any of my Trustees, and the person or corporation from whom my Trustees borrow shall nevertheless be entitled to receive and be paid, for its, his or her benefit, such interest as may be agreed upon by my Trustees.
My Trustees may make any required division of my estate or set aside or pay any share or interest therein either wholly or in part in the assets forming my estate at the time of such division, setting aside, or payment and I EXPRESSLY WILL AND DECLARE that my Trustees may fix the value of my estate or any part thereof for the purpose of making any such division, setting aside, or payment and in this regard the decisions of my Trustees, acting in good faith, shall be final and binding upon all persons concerned.
