ROSEHART, Sister Marilyn Catherine
At Parkwood Hospital, London on Thursday, March 24, 2005, Sister Marilyn Rosehar t (formerly Sister Edna Marie), of the Community of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Diocese of London, at age 68 years and in her 49th year of religious life. Marilyn is lovingly remembered and will be sadly missed by her sisters in community and by her family. Her sisters and brother have been faithfully with her especially during these past months of her illness. Marilyn is predeceased by her father Paul in 1945, her mother Edna (McELHONE) in 2002 and her brother-in-law William MUSICK in 1971. Besides her sisters and Friends in community, she is mourned by her sisters Pat MUSICK of Dundas, Gerry DYRKACZ and her husband Marvin of Calgary, Alberta, Jean MECH and her husband Bob of Hamilton, Ginny LASANOWSKI and her husband Stan of Guelph and her brother Paul and wife Sharon of Elora. Many nieces and nephews will remember their aunt as someone who was vitally interested in their lives - Lynn, Michelle, Lisa, Lori, Erica, Paula, Paul, Tom, Mike and Mark. Marilyn's memory and vital spirit will be kept alive for the next generation of great nieces and nephews. They will carry the goodness of her spirit into the future. Marilyn was raised in Simcoe and grew up in a close-knit family where the seeds of responsibility, faith and respect for people were planted. She had training in both administration and in spiritual direction and these gifts led her to administrative work in St. Joseph's Hospital in London and Chatham as well as Saint Mary's Hospital. She also served in leadership positions within the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph. More recently she worked at St. Joseph's Hospitality Centre where she became friend to so many volunteers and clients alike. Her warmth, sensitive spirit, keen wit and good old-fashioned practicality created many lasting relationships. She had a tenacious sense of what needed to be done and did not let apparent obstacles deter her. Her Friends always knew her as someone who supported and encouraged their endeavours. For the last six years she was a co-director at Medaille Spirituality Centre where she enjoyed creating space for others to rest and to reflect. Her sense of the beautiful and her passion for hospitality to others were two strong strands of her own spirituality. Marilyn and those close to her are so appreciative of the many people who were part of the last phase of her journey into God. In particular we wish to extend gratitude to the nursing staff at Parkwood Palliative Care and Dr. John SWIFT for their day to day care and encouraging words. Dr. Kelly REGAN and Dr. Seema LUKE played significant roles in getting Marilyn the care that she needed. The Palliative Care Out reach Team were such a wonderful and constant support. Resting at Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse, 1486 Richmond Street, N., London on Monday, March 28, 2005 from 2-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. and Tuesday, March 29, 2005 from 9 a.m. until 10: 15 a.m. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated in Immaculate Conception Chapel, Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse, 1486 Richmond Street, N., London on Tuesday, March 29 at 10: 30 a.m. Interment to follow in St. Peter's Cemetery. The Vigil Service will be at Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse on Monday, March 28, 2005 at 7: 30 p.m. At the request of her family and in keeping with Marilyn's spirit, in lieu of flowers, donations to St. Joseph's Hospitality Centre, London, would be appreciated.

James Joseph REGAN
By Patricia REGAN, Wednesday, November 30, 2005, Page A26
Husband, father, brother, grandfather, friend, member of Alcoholics Anonymous. Born June 9, 1928, in Mitchell, Ontario Died June 17 after a brief illness in Markham, Ontario, aged 77
My father loved to tell stories: stories about growing up in the Depression; stories that related to his trade -- the operation of heavy machinery; stories about the characters and goings-on at the various tracks where he raced thoroughbred horses.
I heard about the escapades and achievements of my brothers and sisters and, of course, the baby steps and accomplishments of his nine grandchildren. Stories included interesting people nicknamed Sticky Battersby, The Wheel or Three Fingers.
My dad would sit on his front porch and recount the vibrant activity of the neighbourhood. As with most stories told by members of my family -- perhaps it is the Irish in us -- these stories were prone to exaggeration.
My father also loved to tell jokes.
But the most important stories in my father's life were not humorous, were never told, and the characters had no names. These individuals were very much real, but remained anonymous. On the day my father died, he had had 48 years and 9 months of sobriety. He was extremely proud of this achievement. Always "taking it one day at a time," he was very public about his involvement with Alcoholics Anonymous, but would not reveal another member's identity.
As my father was waiting outside the operating room for surgery, the first in his 77 years, he told a nurse that he had started the Alcoholics Anonymous chapter at her hospital. I knew that he had initiated many other Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in the Greater Toronto Area. The nurse asked my dad if he was going to attend the upcoming International Alcoholics Anonymous conference in Toronto; he said he hoped to.
Although my father died before the conference, there is no doubt that he would have been there, telling anyone who would listen a story or joke.
Many years ago, for a high-school project, I interviewed my father about Alcoholics Anonymous and his struggle with alcoholism. I learned a great deal about his courage in fighting this disease and the life-saving nature of the Alcoholics Anonymous program and philosophy.
Growing up, I remember the many late-night calls he received from alcoholics needing his help. He never once refused to take them. I remember a man passed out on our front lawn, calling at the house for my father's assistance. My dad would quietly help anyone who asked to be helped. He understood the universal nature of alcoholism, regardless of an individual's sex, race, age or social situation.
At my father's funeral, a gentleman told my mother that he felt my father saved his life. He talked with my father almost every day. My father provided him with encouragement and never judged him. Others told my family that they would be forever grateful to my dad for his support, understanding, and positive outlook.
I don't know how many people my father touched through his involvement with Alcoholics Anonymous; I'm guessing hundreds, perhaps more. Most of their experiences will never be told publicly, but these stories will live on in the hearts of those he helped and sponsored.
When my father was buried, placed in the suit pocket closest to his heart were the well-worn Alcoholics Anonymous prayer and 12-step cards that he had kept in his wallet for almost 49 years. His anniversary medallions were his most precious belongings and they were distributed as signs of hope. By sharing the story of my father's involvement with Alcoholics Anonymous and his courage in facing the disease of alcoholism, I hope others will find inspiration and strength to remember "easy does it" and "one day at a time."
Patricia is James's daughter.

KEATING, Charles -- I Remember
By Peter HAYS, Friday, December 2, 2005, Page S9
Peter HAYS, a Calgary television producer and director, writes about Charles KEATING, whose obituary appeared on November 23.
Charles KEATING could be as imposing as he was kind. In the spring of 2000, I was desperately trying to find financing for a television satire of A&E's Biography called Liography. It was a project I had wanted to do with actor Leslie NIELSEN, and had been commissioned by the Comedy Network, but had failed to get the full backing of Telefilm. It was at risk of evaporating.
My friend and former colleague Nancy REGAN, then a host at ATV News in Halifax, suggested I ask Charles for money.
Charles was known to have made a fortune when he sold his Dartmouth cable company to the Shaw group. As a former reporter for the Halifax Daily News, I knew he was a big Liberal, but I'd never asked him for anything. A few days later, I was sitting in his office, surrounded by dozens of photos of Charles with famous people. He asked me in a booming voice why he should invest in my wild idea. "Because," I promised, "You will be repaid in full before anyone else profits from the project."
"Peter," he growled, "I don't need you to get to heaven." Indeed.
Charles did invest, making the series, which was a success, possible.

Much love and thanks are owed by the family to Vincent's nurses: Theresa GOLL, Beata KLEINERT, Gles, Anne, Esther, and the other caring Nursing Staff at The Claremont Retirement Residence. The wonderful care he received there supported Vincent and his family during the final stages of his luminous life.
