LEPAPE, Lionel Norman
Of Kelowna, British Columbia, born August 27, 1927 and raised in Montreal, died October 26, 2003, from the complications of a life lived and a body getting old. Lionel is pre-deceased by his infant brother, teenage sister, parents, adult sister, only wife, teenage grand_son, and adult daughter. Lionel lived as fun loving a life as you can imagine for a boy in the depression on the outskirts of Montreal and had many adventures as a young man with Friends, cars, skiing, tennis, boating, and women. He went on to produce a family of three children with his beloved Terry, started his own company and worked like a dog to ensure his wife and kids were able to play and travel the world. Lionel spent his last few years in Kelowna close to his remaining children and grandchildren enjoying the weather and vistas that the Okanagan has to offer. At Lionel's personal request and insistence there will be no organized service. For those who knew him, why not take the time to have a private moment to visit your memories and to say good bye to the man as you remember him.

LEPOIDEVIN, Shirley
Died peacefully and bravely at home on Thursday, March 13, 2003.
Predeceased by her parents, Dr. Jim and Jean ELLIOT/ELLIOTT of Quebec City.
Shirley was so glad that her two six week old grandchildren, Lucy and Alex, with Teresa and David, were able to come to Collingwood from Vancouver to be with her. The twins are an absolute delight.
Shirley was also able to celebrate her 40th Wedding Anniversary with Tom and Mark, along with sister Ann and Jack LAIDLAW.
Ann and Jack as well as nieces Kate and Meg gave so much love and support throughout Shirley's ordeal. It is greatly appreciated.
The numerous cards, letters, emails, phone calls, food, flowers etc. that Shirley received were constant reminders of all her loving Friends. Many remembered what an important role she played in their lives. Shirley new that she had an army of angels looking out for her over the past four months. She never stopped caring for others and wanting to help them in any way she could.
Shirley accomplished a lot in her lifetime. Very early in her adult life she travelled by herself around the world. She returned to nursing, met Tom, sailed off to England, raised two wonderful sons, went back to school to get her BscN, and then was a very caring Homecare Co-ordinator, first at Sunnybrook, then in North York.
In retirement, she loved life in Collingwood with many new Friends, playing bridge, golfing, skiing, hiking, biking the list of activities goes on and on.
Shirley, you were so strong. You will be greatly missed but we all have incredible memories from a life so full of terrific events, like hiking on the northern shore of Lake Superior.
There are many people to thank but particular recognition has to be given to the Community Care Access Centre in Simcoe County, Hospice in Collingwood, the doctors and nurses in the Cancer Wing at Sunnybrook, Dr. MORAN and a special, big thanks to Gil and Angela.
A memorial service and reception will be held at the Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Third and Maple Streets in Collingwood, at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 21.
Instead of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Hospice Georgian Triangle, 49 Raglan Street, Collingwood L9Y 4X1.
