Of Mississauga, Ontario, formerly of Winnipeg. It is with profound sadness that we announce Marilyn's passing in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 27, 2005. Marilyn, affectionately called "Aunty MiMi" by her nieces, will be forever cherished by her husband Chris FREMONT, her family in Winnipeg: sister Evelyn MACKENZIE-REID (Chuck REID), nieces Diana MacKENZIE, Donna NELSON and family, her beloved Aunt Ishbel in Scotland and long time friend Joseph RYAN of Mississauga. She was predeceased by her parents Daisy and Jack MacKENZIE, Winnipeg. Marilyn loved her family, Friends, nature, all animals, music and was proud of her Scottish heritage. Her love for nature and animals was projected with her caring for all creatures great and small. Marilyn delighted in her daily visits feeding and watching the antics of "her Black squirrels", birds and other creatures. During her courageous battle with cancer, Marilyn's concern was not for herself but for her "Chrissy" as she so fondly called him. Marilyn reached out her hand and touched your heart. Cancer may have taken her away, but cherished memories will always remain. Chris and family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga for the care and compassion shown Marilyn. Marilyn requested cremation and no formal service. As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, donations in Marilyn's memory may be made to the Mississauga Humane Society, 1050 Shawnmarr Rd., Mississauga, L5H 3V1 or the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 16586 Woodbine Ave., R.R.#3, Newmarket, L3Y 4W1.

APPS, Margaret Imogene (née GRACEY)
A devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, nurse and tireless volunteer, Imogene APPS passed away on Monday, October 17 peacefully at home in Woodstock, Ontario after a long and brave struggle with cancer. She was in her 73rd year.
Imogene was the second daughter of the late Garfield GRACEY and Edith (DOWN) GRACEY, of Curries, Ontario and, for over 50 years, the beloved wife of Arthur Carlyle APPS. Together they made a welcoming home, raised a large family and built a successful business.
Predeceased by their daughter, Mary Kathleen (1965), she will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by their 6 children Alfred and his wife Danielle FRENCH of Toronto, Margaret (Peggy) BRUNELLE and her husband Jean-Guy of Montreal, Eric and his wife Laura BAKER of Toronto; Caroline BRUNELLE and her husband Normand of Montreal, David of Cambridge and his fianceé Patricia POMAR and Martin of Woodstock. She was a dear and loving grandma to her 13 grandchildren: Devon, Suzanne, Nicole, Catherine, Philippe, Carlyle, Caroline, Robert, Grace, Nathalie, Charlotte, Olivia and Aubrey-Rose.
Also predeceased by her dear brother, Cecil (1987), Imogene is survived by 4 brothers and 2 sisters. She will be sadly missed by Charles of Ancaster, George of Listowel, David of Toronto, Donald of Toronto, Evelyn O'LEARY of Woodstock and Helen WILLIAMS of Guelph.
Imogene was a dedicated worker for many causes, especially the Anglican Church, the Arthritis Society and the Liberal Party at the local, provincial and national levels. She was a long-time member and warden of Old St. Paul's Anglican Church, Woodstock, where she also sang in the choir and was active in a variety of organizations.
Among her many leadership roles over the years, Imogene served as President of the Deanery of Oxford, President of the Anglican Church Women for the Diocese of Huron, member of the Board of the Corporation of Huron University College, President of the Oxford Liberal Association and President of the Arthritis Society of Oxford County. She was a frequent delegate to the Diocesan and National Synods of the Anglican Church of Canada and to various Provincial and National Liberal Party Conventions. She was a recipient of the Award of Huron.
Imogene devoted herself to helping others. She will be sadly missed by countless fellow travellers who she served so quietly and faithfully over many years by driving them to church, delivering meals-on-wheels, leading aquatic therapy classes or just dropping by to provide some valued Friendship and cheer. Nor will she soon be forgotten by the families of many whose loved ones she nursed in their own last days.
We extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Dr. SUGIMOTO and his team at the London Regional Cancer Centre and to her personal doctor, Dr. VU of Woodstock, for the care and attention they paid. We especially thank all those many family and Friends who helped to sustain her in these difficult years.
The family will be pleased to receive Friends at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Avenue, Woodstock (519-539-0004) on Wednesday, October 19th from 7: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Thursday, October 20th from 2: 00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and from 7:00 p.m. to 9: 00 p.m. A Service of Christian Burial to celebrate Imogene's life will be held on Friday, October 21 at 1: 00 p.m. at Old St. Paul's Anglican Church, 723 Dundas Street, Woodstock.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Imogene's memory to the Canadian Arthritis Society, the Canadian Cancer Society, or the Old St. Paul's Restoration Fund. Online condolences at www.longworthfuneralhome.com Blessed are they that die in the Lord. Grant us Peace.

PACE, Dr. William Eugene, M.D., M.Sc., F.R.C.P.C.
Dermatologist and Clinical Professor Emeritus, University of Western Ontario, passed away peacefully and gracefully in his 90th year on Thursday, November 10, 2005 after surgery following a longstanding battle with Parkinson's Disease. He is survived by the love of his life, Elizabeth (WAUGH) PACE and their six children, spouses and grandchildren. They are: Anne (PACE) WALKER and Harry WALKER of Burlington with children Jennifer (Walker) SMITH and husband Steve, Lindsay and David; Captain John and Sheilagh PACE of Montreal with children Jessica and Kaitlin Dr. Ron and Ellen PACE of Waterloo with children Michael and Alison; Mary PACE and Roy FRENCH of Toronto with son Alex; Allan PACE and Lin WARD of Orangeville with son Taylor; and Carla PACE and her friend Colin WHITE/WHYTE of Vancouver. Brother-in-law to Pat WAUGH and the late Dick WAUGH, and much loved uncle to his many Waugh nieces and nephews. Bill PACE graduated from Medicine at the University of Western Ontario in 1941 and ser ved as Squadron Leader, Medical Services in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War (1942-1946). During that time, he developed a life-long passion for flying, a dream that came to fruition after he earned his commercial pilot's license at the age of 74. Following the war, he went on to obtain his M.Sc. in Biochemistry and then specialized in Dermatology, a field of medicine that at the time was still in its infancy. He was passionate about the dangers of sunlight long before it was fashionable and he became an expert on sun-induced skin damage. Through his dedicated efforts that include the discovery of Benzoyl Peroxide as an effective treatment for the humiliating disease of teenage acne, and his compassionate and tireless treatment of complex skin ulcers, his referral practice flourished. He often became the final arbiter for complex problems that had resisted diagnosis and treatment. His love for his work and family was matched by his love of the great outdoors, which he shared with his wife and children on many occasions. As an avid canoe tripper and naturalist, every portage and campsite became a field trip where the beauties of nature were honoured and respected. His agile and tireless mind was not hampered by the deafness that progressed throughout his adult life, nor by the Parkinson's Disease that robbed him of his physical mobility in his later years. His keen intellect, hearty laugh and sparkling blue eyes will be remembered as a lasting tribute to his long and productive life. Visitation on Tuesday, November 15th from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm at James A. Harris Funeral Home 220 St. James St. at Richmond Street, London, Ontario where the funeral service will be conducted on Wednesday, November 16th at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation and interment to take place at a later date at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Parkinson Society Canada, 4500 Blakie Road, Unit 117, London, Ontario N6L 1G5 would be greatly appreciated.
