JANNAWAY, Jean Elizabeth "Betty" (née SHEPHERD)
(August 31, 1919 to March 20, 2005)
Betty passed away peacefully at Oak Bay Lodge in Victoria after many months of declining health. She was predeceased by her husband Donald Renwick JANNAWAY, and her brother Charles SHEPHERD. She is survived by her brothers George and Don SHEPHERD, and her sister Shirley (Bill) HEFLER; her sister-in-law Marjorie (Chuck) SHEPHERD, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and their children in Eastern Canada.
Mom will also be sadly missed by her sons Grant (Janet) and Graeme (Leigh) and grandchildren Bradley (Tamara), Donovan (Janet), Claire (David) LUTTMANN, and Andrew, as well as great grandchildren Grant and Julianna LUTTMANN.
Betty was born and raised with her loving family in St. Catharines, Ontario. She was an active member of the Presbyterian Church in Canada from her early years; teaching Sunday school, leading C.G.I.T., and many years leading Couples Clubs and Young Peoples groups with Don. Betty was a life member and past president of the Women's Missionary Society and also an Elder at Rosedale Presbyterian Church in Toronto. She continued her work in St. Andrews Presbyterian Church during her time in Victoria, by visiting the elderly, helping with "Open church" days, plus Bible study and actively supporting the Book Club.
Work with books and literacy was a lifelong pleasure. Betty graduated in Library Science from Ryerson Institute. She worked as a librarian for television Ontario and taught reading to adults through York University, University of Toronto and George Brown College. As well as supporting literacy programs, church libraries, and book clubs, Betty loved to read to the young people in her family, giving them all books to treasure.
Betty supported and worked for many charitable organizations, during a lifetime of giving. The Arthritis Society of Canada, Canadian Cancer Society, Heart and Stroke Foundation, British Columbia Lung Association and Salvation Army were of particular interest for her heartfelt fund raising efforts.
A gracious hostess, Betty opened her home here and in Toronto to many travelers: students, church guests and others needing a place to rest. As well she welcomed numerous Friends to meetings, and parties for the organizations she supported.
Mom always said "the most important things in life were family and relationships". She always had time and energy for Friends and family especially the youngsters in her life. She expressed her regret that her life wouldn't be long enough to "see what these wonderful people would become"
The family wishes to express their thanks and immense appreciation to the staff at Oak Bay Lodge for the tender care they provided to our mother and grandmother these past months, especially in her final days. Thanks also to Reverend Dr. and Mrs. Currie as well as Dr. M.D. Hunt. A service will be held at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Victoria, on Thursday March 24th, 2005 at 10: 00 am. We will gather with Friends and family to celebrate Betty's life in May at Toronto, followed by interment of ashes. Arrangements will be announced later. You may wish to remember Betty by donating to the Oak Bay Lodge Foundation 2251 Cadboro Bay Road, Victoria, British Columbia, a charity of your choice, or by giving a book to a child.

SHEPHERD, Ralph Herbert
On Tuesday, October 18, 2005. Ralph was the elder son of George Herbert SHEPHERD and Gladys Houston SHEPHERD of Creemore and brother of George Houston SHEPHERD and his companion Brenda McCLEARY of Hornings Mills. Ralph loved his family deeply and committed his intelligence and spirit to their care. Together with his beloved Marj, who he lost this spring, he took their four children out into the wider world. Ralph was proud of them and the lives they created: Greg, his wife Siara and grand_sons Seth and Cody beautiful Geoff (1960-1981); Roger, his partner Patricia and youngest grandchildren Remy and Chloe, and Nan and her partner Katherine. Ralph believed in the older virtues. Discipline, discretion and a lifetime of prudent risk-taking took him from the drafting board to the presidency of one of the largest oil mining operations in the world. But he was not dull. Once, when the way Nature had sculpted one of his fields did not please him, Ralph took an entire summer and five considerable machines to rearrange it. He always kept drafting paper and a lot of land close by and never really did understand why trees didn't grow in straight lines.

Marion was born in Hamiota, Manitoba in 1914. She grew up in the community of McConnell, pioneered by her family. Married at 20, she led a diversified life, as farm wife, service wife and mother of three. In the vanguard of women turning to professional life as her family grew, she became a teacher in Manitoba, later in Ghana, West Africa. In Africa, her approach to life led her into many adventures. Returning to Canada, she acquired a B.A. from the University of Toronto and taught in Ontario. Looking for further challenges, she nurtured the career of Benny HINN, then took up a career as Office Manager for the medical practice of Dr. Carmen PRICE in Pickering. Many of his patients regretted her retirement at the age of 81. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the charity of your choice in Marion's name.

SHEPHERD, Ralph Herbert
On Tuesday, October 18, 2005. Ralph was the elder son of George Herbert SHEPHERD and Gladys Houston SHEPHERD of Creemore and brother of George Houston SHEPHERD and his companion Brenda McCLEARY of Hornings Mills. Ralph loved his family deeply and committed his intelligence and spirit to their care. Together with his beloved Marj, who he lost this spring, he took their four children out into the wider world. Ralph was proud of them and the lives they created: Greg, his wife Siara and grand_sons Seth and Cody beautiful Geoff (1960-1981); Roger, his partner Patricia and youngest grandchildren Remy and Chloe, and Nan and her partner Katherine. Ralph believed in the older virtues. Discipline, discretion and a lifetime of prudent risk-taking took him from the drafting board to the presidency of one of the largest oil mining operations in the world. But he was not dull. Once, when the way Nature had sculpted one of his fields did not please him, Ralph took an entire summer and five considerable machines to rearrange it. He always kept drafting paper and a lot of land close by and never really did understand why trees didn't grow in straight lines. Friends may visit the Fawcett Funeral Home - Creemore Chapel, 182 Mill Street, on Friday, October 21, 2005 from 6-9 in the evening. A Funeral Service will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2005 at Saint John's United Church, 192 Mill Street, Creemore at 1: 00 p.m. Interment Creemore Union Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of the donor's choice. Friends may leave messages for the family on line by visiting www.fawcettfuneralhomes.com
