REIMER, Marlene (née MacARTHUR)
Had three loves: her family; her profession and spending time in the great outdoors.
She was the daughter of Jack MacARTHUR and Marguarite CARR, and she and her sister Leanne MacArthur KUHNERT enjoyed a childhood rich with grandparents, great-aunts and great-uncles. She started her own family shortly after marrying Ernie REIMER, and had 3 children, Beth GALLUP, Andrew REIMER and Jennifer REIMER. She and Ernie took us camping almost as soon as we were born, and all of us still love to be outside, winter and summer.
Marlene was passionate about the value of nursing, and had a major impact on the profession through her teaching and research. Highlights of her academic career included convocating with her daughters (Jennifer, Bachelor's; Beth, Master's; Marlene, PhD.) and meeting Yasser Arafat while teaching in the Gaza Strip. She served as member and President of many national and international committees. She was a professor emeritus of the University of Calgary, and had just started a new position as Dean of the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Manitoba.
The funeral will be in Calgary on Monday, November 7 at 1: 30 p.m. at the Heritage Funeral Home, 1708 16 Ave. N.W.

One dead, one badly injured in shootings
witnesses: describe gangland-style killing of victim riding bicycle
By Joe FRIESEN, Wednesday, April 20, 2005, Page A10
An 18-year-old man was killed riding his bike in Parkdale in a shooting that sent bystanders scrambling for cover and a 17-year-old was in critical condition after being shot while in an area of the Annex that residents say is plagued by a 24-hour crack den.
Just before 9 p.m. on Monday, Joseph JONES was riding his bike on Jameson Avenue south of Queen Street, right next to Parkdale Collegiate.
A 41-year-old woman said Mr. JONES, 18, had been in an argument a few hours earlier that escalated to yelling. As he rode past her balcony, the woman saw one man open fire on Mr. JONES, the flame from the black handgun lighting up like a firecracker, she said.
The man fired twice, she said, the bullets whizzing below her and shattering the glass of her apartment lobby. Inside the lobby, a woman named Janice was playing with her two-year-old daughter, tickling her with a feather duster.
The first bullet came through the front door, Janice said. She instinctively leapt on top of her daughter, pushing her to the ground and covering her with her own body. The next bullet flew past her head. She could hear it, she said, and then felt the hot sting as broken glass landed on top of her back and a shard stuck in her earlobe.
"It felt so hot, I thought I was shot," said Janice, who declined to give her last name. "I was just kissing the concrete."
Ursula HARRIS, who was standing nearby, watched as seconds later a man strode into the middle of Jameson Avenue and fired four more shots at Mr. JONES.
"I saw his arm moving with the gun and it went bang, bang, bang, bang," she said. "I said 'Oh my God, they're killing him.' "
Mr. JONES stopped, got off his bike and stumbled about 30 metres before collapsing face down in the gutter, blood pouring from his wounds. He died shortly after.
Two men fled the area on foot, running through the grounds of Parkdale Collegiate, an area that residents say is known to be frequented by drug dealers.
Mr. JONES, who lived with his aunt and was unemployed, was known to police but his killing is not believed to be gang-related. Homicide detectives are asking community members to come forward with any information.
A few hours after Mr. JONES was killed, a 17-year-old man was shot while in the area of Bathurst Street and Follis Avenue, close to the Grapefruit Moon diner.
The man was seen crawling into the middle of Bathurst Street around 12: 45 a.m. before he collapsed and ambulance workers arrived on the scene. Julie GALLUPE, who watched the aftermath of the incident from her window, said he was panicking, kicking his legs and shouting that he couldn't breathe.
He was in critical condition yesterday.
A man was arrested nearby in connection with the shooting but police did not release his name or the charges against him.
Greg MacKIE, a PhD student at the University of Toronto, said he saw the victim moments before he was hit.
"I saw this sketchy guy who seemed to be lurking in the alleyway," Mr. MacKIE said. "A car zoomed by, a late model hatchback, and that's when I heard the shot."
Mr. MacKIE said the area, which is surrounded by half-million-dollar homes and professional families, is plagued by suspicious behaviour.
Several residents said there is a crack house operating in the alley near where the shooting took place.
They said they have brought their complaints to the police but they have been unable to do anything to stop it.
"They asked me if they could use my deck to stake it out," said one woman, who asked that her name be withheld for safety reasons.
Two years ago, 17 shots were fired from an automatic weapon at the same corner. No one was hurt, but bullets ended up in the front room of at least one home.
"We all know that there is criminal activity going in and out of that alley all the time," the woman said. "The community is upset about it and we're not going to stand by and watch it happen."

Gertrude SYROTUIK
By Jerry SYROTUIK, Monday, July 4, 2005, Page A14
Newfoundlander, nurse, mother, artist. Born November 16, 1921, in Saint John's, Newfoundland. Died March 26 in St. Catharines, Ontario, of Alzheimer's disease, aged 83.
Gertrude was born Gertrude GALWAY during a time in Newfoundland history when things were very different than they are today. She was one of nine children, with seven sisters and one brother. The best way to describe the Galway family came from Noël GOODRIDGE, who aptly stated: "When the Galway girls speak -- everybody listens."
Gertrude graduated from nursing at St. Clare's Mercy Hospital in Saint John's. Shortly thereafter she met her husband John in Saint John's, where he was stationed during the Second World War. They moved to Thorold, Ontario, (John's hometown) in 1945 and were married in November of that year. There they raised a family of six children. Being a proud Newfoundlander transplanted to the Niagara Peninsula was not an easy adjustment. You need to remember this was before Newfoundland was considered cool and they still called it the Rock.
From getting used to people's attitudes to coping with the hot, humid summer weather, she slowly acclimatized -- but at her core she was always a Newfoundlander. Her anxiety about flying significantly limited the number of trips she would have liked to make back to Saint John's.
As a result of her nursing training, Gertrude was not intimidated by physicians. Her at-times fierce personality would sometimes collide with a physician's health-care advice for one of her children. When she came within spitting distance, she would remind the doctor that she was a registered nurse.
Gertrude would have to be described as a large RC Roman Catholic. With "Jesus, Mary and Joseph" rolling off her tongue she frequently attended mass on a daily basis and you soon learned you could not win any theological debate with her. Unfortunately her children's behaviour was not always in line with church doctrine but everyone got through it. One of the best pieces of everyday advice she ever gave still rings true: There is never any excuse for being rude.
By far, her greatest gift was her art. When painting she would tilt her head slightly, close one eye and see things only she could see, then magically transpose them onto the canvas. She would just know that a painting was finished or whether she still needed to do something with it. At other times, in frustration, she would whitewash a half-completed work and start over.
A theme that often recurred in her paintings was motion, expressed in varying abstract forms. Even some of her still-life paintings seemed to resonate. She trained with several respected artists and became accomplished. This resulted in her earning numerous awards over the years and enjoying showings of her work in Ontario, New York state and Saint John's. She also had a keen interest in children's art as her own children were growing up.
With being a nurse, mother and accomplished artist she was still not done. She enrolled in university and began to further refine her artistic abilities. She graduated from Brock University with a degree in fine arts in 1985 at the age of 63. She continued to be a prolific artist into her 70s.
Near the end of her life, her memory and speech began to falter, a great devastation for a Newfoundlander. Alzheimer's disease set in and she suffered a broken hip; she spent the last 3½ years of her life in a nursing home. She was given last rites on Good Friday which seemed fitting given her religious fervour. When she took her last breath my wife Jane, my daughter Elizabeth and I were with her. It was finished.
Jerry SYROTUIK is Gertrude's son.
