Effie Isobel {McQUARRIE} BAUMAN/BOWMAN
In loving memory of Effie BAUMAN/BOWMAN, March 2, 1914-March 10, 2002
Effie BAUMAN/BOWMAN, a resident of Gore Bay, died at the Manitoulin Health Centre, Little Current, on Sunday March 10, 2002 at the age of 88 years. She was the fifth child of the late Ronald and Agnes {ALLEN} McQUARRIE. Effie attended both public school and high school in Gore Bay and Teacher Training at North Bay Normal School in 1931 and 32. She taught in Pleasant Valley (formerly Pig Tantrum), Gore Bay, Toronto and Newmarket. On July 8, 1936 she married Marven BAUMAN/BOWMAN, and after 44 years away, retired to Gore Bay. Effie was a vital, active presence in her communities. She was an adored primary school teacher, a superb cook, who entertained weekly right up until the time she entered the hospital, a wife and mother and kind friend to all. She was a founding member of the Senior Citizen Club, serving as secretary for many years, until her failed vision forced her resignation. She served on the Library Board and was instrumental in starting the CNIB Help Group. Everyone who met her, recognized her as a special person, one who saw only the best in others. She possessed a marvelous sense of humour and great inner strength. Effie was the oldest member of All Saints Anglican Church. She was christened and married in the church and her wish was to be buried from there as well.
Dearly loved wife of almost 66 years of Marven. Loving mother of Mary Jean and Lachlan MUIR, of Gore Bay, Carolyn and Bryan OSTROWSKI of Midland and Catherine and Raouf BALBAA of Mississauga. Proud grandmother of Mark Toole and his wife Denise, Jordan Toole and his wife Debbie, Leisha Ostrowski and her fiance Chris and Adam BALBAA, and great grandchildren Mitchell, Katie, Carlie and Sydney. Predeceased by sister Jean COOK and brothers Jack, Jim, Donald and Mac McQUARRIE. Fondly remembered by a large extended family of nieces and nephews.
Friends called the Culgin Funeral Home Monday March 11, 2002. The funeral service was held at All Saints Anglican Church on Tuesday March 12, 2002 with Reverend Lind WHITE/WHYTE officiating, assisted by Rev. Rhonda HIRST. Spring Interment in Hagey Cemetery at Cambridge.

He was a life-long boating enthusiast, a voracious reader, a dog lover, a crossword puzzle addict, a pool player in later years, driving daily to the Seniors Centre in Town.
