Very peacefully, on April 21, 2005, with her family at her side. Survived by her four devoted and loving sons; Michael (the late Maggie), David Andrew (Graham), Sean (Bev) and Geoffrey (Leslie). She was proud grandmother to Kaitlain, Emily, Megin, Brendan and Virginia and Thomas. Predeceased last October by her faithful and beloved husband of 53 years Thomas Albert PEAKE. Born in 1926 to Edna Doreen and James Leslie HENDERSON of Rosedale, Toronto and sister of the late Jane Leslie and Anne Doreen HENDERSON.

Ginny, as she was known for many years, was a glowing life force; a stern Sergeant-Major, when needed (and it was); the doyenne of Hide-Away Island in Muskoka for 28 glorious summers; a fun-filled friend to so many of that Greatest Generation; yet a private person who reveled in staying at the cottage all summer and well into the fall, often alone. She gave birth to four boys and countless blossoms. Her gardening talents were legend in both town and country where she could nurture nature like few others.

Dear son, father, brother, uncle and nephew.
It's been 8 years,
Since you've been gone,
But still your face,
Lingers on.
We all miss you,
More than words can say,
We miss you more,
With each passing day.
You were so young,
Had a life to live,
Had family to care for you,
And lots to give.
You're in a better place now,
Way up in the sky,
Up high with the birds,
Where you shall fly.
We love you and miss you Uncle Rick.

Sadly missed by "All" your family.

MASSON, Janet Catherine (née LAMONT)
On May 13, 2005 at home, after a valiant struggle with cancer, at the age of 72. Wife of Gordon MASSON, cherished daughter Karen, and son Paul will all miss her greatly. Her sister Margaret (ANDREWS) and her husband Bill ANDREWS have been very close to her also. Loving Nana of Jessica and Matthew FORD, Karen and Christopher FORD's children, and Adam and Laura MASSON, Paul and Cathie Ann MASSON's children, sister-in-law of Ted and Muriel MASSON. Sadly missed by nieces and nephews, Janet BROPHY, James ANDREWS, Anne MASSON, Janet PEARCE, Nancy LOGAN and their spouses and children.
Cathie MASSON has been a tireless volunteer with the Ste. Anne and District Branch of the Victorian Order of Nurses. She has served as past president of the Board of Directors, and board member, but longest, and dearest to her heart, as co-ordinator of palliative volunteers.
In 1984, as a direct result of a study she carried out, the Victorian Order of Nurses began a palliative home care service for residents of the West Island. Cathie's vision and determination also laid the groundwork for the opening of a free standing hospice in our community. She generously supported other with her expertise to realize her dream. She served on the board of this hospice from its opening.
While the Victorian Order of Nurses was the recipient of most of her volunteer hours, over the past 40 years she has volunteered with a variety of other community and church organizations. It was those in need at the end of their life who benefited the most from her vision, commitment, professionalism and compassion.
She was the recipient of the Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada from the Governor General of Canada in 1992, The Volunteer Award of Excellence from the Victorian Order of Nurses of Canada in 1996, and, most recently (April 18, 2005), The Governor General's Caring Canadian Award from Adrienne Clarkson, the Governor General, at a presentation at Rideau Hall, Ottawa.
Thank you to all the staff at Saint Mary's Hospital Center, especially to nurse Jeanie Sinclair. The care and support given to Cathie and the family by the Victorian Order of Nurses and Health Access nurses after she came home was greatly appreciated.
Visitation at Collins Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Home, 222 Autoroute 20 (Cartier exit 49), Pointe-Claire, Quebec, on Tuesday, May 17 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Celebration of her life will be held at Beaurepaire United Church, 25 Fieldfare, Beaconsfield, Quebec, on Wednesday, May 18 a 1 p.m. Interment to follow at Lakeview Memorial Gardens.

She was a beloved grandmother figure to their children: Doug, Dave, Wayne McFADDEN, Marilyn STERN, and Bruce, Larry and Scott BARRETT. Adear great-grandmother of twelve. Although Kathy never married, she met the "love of her life," the late Ernie SNODDEN at Kipling Acres. Many thanks to the staff, Friends and volunteers on the 4th floor who so ably cared for her. If desired, donations to Kipling Acres would be appreciated. Cremation has taken place. Private interment in the McFadden-Barrett family plot, Park Lawn Cemetery.
