HALL, Louisa Irene (SANDICK)
Of Ingersoll Avenue, in Woodstock, on Wednesday, October 26, 2005 in her 100th year. Irene was born in Ingersoll on March 16, 1906, the eldest child of J. Ernest and Mary (WEIR) SANDICK. She spent her childhood on her parents' dairy farm near Beachville. In her youth Irene was catcher on the well known Dunn's ladies softball team, until she went off to Normal School, London, in 1925. In 1926, she began her teaching career in a small school in Lakehurst, north or Peterborough, and a year later she married John D. HALL of that community. Together they had six children - Douglas (Rhonda) of Montreal, Quebec, Pauline (Bob McLAREN) of Hickson, Delbert (Sheila) of Innisfil, Richard (Janet) of Woodstock, Keith of Woodstock, and Dennis (Thea) of Hadashville, Manitoba. From 1934 to 1952 the family resided in Innerkip, where Irene was active in the United Church and various community events. After John's death in 1953, Irene went back to teaching - serving in several Oxford County schools, among them Centreville, Southside, Beaconsfield, and Hickson. She loved children and could remember almost all of those she taught - long after her retirement in 1971. She kept mentally alert until her life's end, enjoying scrapbooks and puzzles, scrabble and cards - usually beating her care-giver, Keith, quite handily. In addition to her children and their spouses, Irene is survived by twenty grandchildren and their spouses, thirty-three great-grandchildren and spouses. She also has a sister Nell (Mrs. Alex) HART. She is predeceased by brother Gordon SANDICK (Elsie,) and numerous life long Friends and relatives with whom she shared her long and productive life. Friends and relatives are invited to join the family at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Avenue, Woodstock, 539-0004 on Friday October 28, 2005 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m., where a funeral service to celebrate Irene's life will be held in the chapel on Saturday at 11: 00 a.m. with Reverend Margaret MURRAY the officiant.

VOELSGEN, Hermann Josef
Was a great man. He was kind to everyone and always had a fun sense of mischief. If you asked him how he was doing, he always replied "terrible", but he never meant it. He loved stamps and Skat. He travelled all over the world; he climbed Macchu Picchu, visited the Terra Cotta warriors in China and saw the great works of art at the Vatican. He loved the Mayan Culture and went to Central America many times to see all the ruins. But most of all he loved visiting his daughter Mhairi in Seattle where he could eat all the smoked salmon and chowder he wanted. He was always outgoing and found something to talk about with everyone. He was always a salesman whether it was convincing Mhairi's Friends to have one more vegetarian sausage or running his own company Kevo Hardware Import for 39 years. He loved being his own boss and nobody worked harder than him. He was a courageous man, he lived through World War 2 in Germany as a kid and emigrated to Canada in the 60's. He met his wife Anne at the Ballroom dances at the German Club, they were married for 39 years. Hermann loved his angel - his daughter Mhairi. He loved them both so much he would have done anything for them. He is survived by his wife and daughter, his son-in-law Chris, who he loved like a son, brothers Al and Eugene and sisters Liesel and Hannalore. Hermann, after a brief illness and having lived a full life, died at London Health Sciences Centre, Victoria Campus on November 24, 2005. Many thanks to Pat, Sarah and Joann, his big hearted nurses at Victoria Hospital and Dr. Matt WEIR for his compassion and grace. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held in the chapel at A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London (433-5184) on Tuesday November 29, 2005 at 11: 00 a.m. with interment to follow at St. Peter's Cemetery.

DALY, Hendrika Jacoba (née LOOGMAN)
Born April 12, 1925 in Venray, the Netherlands, passed away March 10, 2005, still fighting, at age 79 in St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. Riki waged a long battle with chronic lung disease with courage and determination, with Peter DALY, her husband of 47 years, at her side. A master story teller, she was a constant source of wisdom, inspiration and hilarity. She was deeply loved and will be sorely missed by her children John (Ingrid RIETS,) Patricia (Eric GRAFSTEIN,) Ann (John WEIR) and Moira (Claudio TAPIA.) She was a loving Oma to Matthew, Daniel and Benjamin DALY- GRAFSTEIN, Sarah WEIR and Owen and Isabella TAPIA. She also leaves her sisters Pia LOOGMAN and Kit SMITH.
Riki grew up in a large, happy household in Holland, the fifth of seven children. After Jan, her only brother, a medical student, died in the Second World War, the family emigrated to Canada. She married Peter in 1957 in Brantford, Ontario. Her life in Canada was devoted to her family, keeping an immaculate household, and caring for creatures large and small. She was also an avid reader, keenly interested in world events and politics, and a perpetually disappointed fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
But it was her personality that touched all who met her. Intelligent, combative and never afraid to voice her opinion, she filled a room and she filled our lives. We will miss her terribly. After her long struggle, may she now rest in peace.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday March 15, 2005, at 11: 00 am at the Humphrey Funeral Home, A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Ave. in Toronto.

PENROSE, Robert C.
On August 20, 2005, surrounded by loving family. Bob adored Mary Louise (née WEIR,) his wife of 48 years. Very proud father of daughter Patricia (Anthony) and son Robert (Dorli); Grandpa to cherished grand_son William; Uncle Bob to niece Penny, nephew Bob and extended family; and devoted friend to all who knew his love and encouragement. Bob was predeceased by his beloved sister Betty and brother Bill.
A proud descendant of Cornish pirates, Bob was born August 13, 1918, in Penticton, British Columbia, and spent his formative years helping on the family orchard, racing home-built kayaks, singing in the church choir, acing school exams, and playing competitive badminton, winning the British Columbia Junior Championship. Throughout his life he was a devoted sportsman as both participant and spectator.
Bob followed brother Bill overseas, joining the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941, flying 40 missions as a bomber pilot and receiving the Distinguished Flying Cross. He was our hero but maintained the only heroes of war were his comrades and brother who never came home.
Bob's passion for flying went from mission to a dream career. He enjoyed every flight in his 33 years as a pilot with Trans Canada Airlines / Air Canada. His reputation was one of a superb pilot and instructor - a pilot's pilot.
Family, Friends, flying, golf, and gardening were Bob's passions, and his life was lived with vigour, integrity, humour, and kindness. A consummate master of ceremonies, Bob engaged all with his quick wit and way with words. He was a confident, compassionate leader who always spoke his mind and took a genuine interest in all whom he knew. As his legion of lifelong Friends can attest, with Bob in your corner, you had a fierce and loyal advocate.
We smile as we imagine Dad walking the heavenly fairways with his foursome, focusing intently on winning his two-bit bet, enjoying a joke, and proudly regaling the exploits of his lefty grand_son Will.
All who knew Bob are welcome to a celebration of his life to be held at the Beach Grove Golf Club at 5946 12th Avenue in Tsawwassen on Sunday, September 25, 2005 from 2 to 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to a charity of your choice. As well, please send a written memory of Bob to his family via mail or e-mail (rcpenrose@direct.ca).
Thank you Bob for your life of love and laughter. We will miss you always.
