MOWAT, James Rodman
The children of James Rodman ('Rod') MOWAT would like to advise longtime Friends of his death, on Tuesday, April 12, 2005 in Santiago, Chile. Dad died peacefully, with his devoted wife of 25 years, Graciela Poblete DE_LA_CERDA ('Piti') by his side. He leaves his children - Anne, (Susan RISK,) of Regina, Saskatchewan Becky, of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island; David, (Lina), of Ottawa, Ontario; Vicki, (Claude LEGER,) of North Bay, Ontario and Kati, of Ottawa, Ontario. He is also survived by his many grandchildren: Norah, Natalie, and James PENDERGAST in Charlottetown Austin, Bridget, and Cameron MOWAT in Ottawa; Alexandre and Eric LEGER in North Bay. He also leaves his sister, Nancy McLATCHIE (Bob,) of Skead, Ontario; niece, Barbara SNOWDEN (Ken) also of Skead, Ontario; nephews, Stuart McLATCHIE (Jo-Anne) of Sidney, British Columbia; and John McLATCHIE (Barbara BAILEY,) of Toronto. Dad was predeceased by his first wife, Marjorie Esther EVANS, of Fredericton, New Brunswick; and their daughter, Norah Patricia ('Patti'). He is also survived by his second wife, Mary Kathryn (WALSH,) of Ottawa, with whom he lived for many years. Dad was a strong and compelling man, whose sense of personal destiny was matched by a dry sense of humour and determination to live on his own terms. A mining consultant for many years, he joined the United Nations Development Program in 1968 to assess and develop base metal mining operations, primarily in Chile and Colombia. Eventually, he decided to retire to Chile, where he had fallen in love with Piti, and the spectacular beauty of the country itself. Until recent years, when his health began to fail, he and Piti travelled home to Canada often, visiting Friends and family. Born January 13, 1925 in Campbellton, New Brunswick, to Isabel Annie ('Nan' WETMORE) and Earl Porter MOWAT, he earned a B.Sc. in Geology from the University of New Brunswick, and later became a Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario. Dad felt he was a self-made man of the old school, driven to achieve in his career. In this, he succeeded. In many ways, Dad was a paradox: he called himself a 'citizen of the world' - anticipating the global village long before the internet. But he was pulled back to his roots in the Maritimes often to enjoy lobster feasts by the sea with his Canadian family and Friends. An intense and challenging man, he could be charismatic, charming, witty, and stimulating. He loved to engage others in deep conversations about politics, business, and history in two languages. Although he spent most of his life far from his children in Canada, he nonetheless exerted a powerful influence on us. A memorial celebration of the life of Rod MOWAT will take place in his beloved New Brunswick, however, the date has not yet been set. Friends and family may contact Becky by Email at mowat@eastlink.ca, or by telephone at (902) 569-9120, if you are interested in receiving an invitation to this gathering. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, 2360 - 2nd Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan S4R 1A6, (306) 569-8433, in memory of James Rodman MOWAT.

DESROCHERS, Doreen Hogan
With mixed emotions, the family of Doreen Hogan announces her passing on August 4, 2005. The sadness of our loss is tempered by the knowledge her suffering has ended. Her impish smile shone through to brighten many a dark day in her struggle with cancer. Doreen peacefully left home surrounded by all her beloved children. She leaves behind Louise (Benoit and children Gabriel and Vicki), John, Jacques, Marc, and Michel (Angela). All her children share the beauty of her blue eyes, as first observed by her sister Monica at Doreen's birth, as well as her quiet dedication to those around. Born in Emo, Ontario, Doreen was the youngest of twelve. It is no secret she always had a special place in her heart for her dear mother Senja RISTANEN, who came to Canada from Finland. Doreen studied in several places, among them The Pines in Chatham, Ontario. Upon growing up, she moved about, spending some years in Thunder Bay and then Toronto. She finally settled in Montréal, founding her family with Jean DESROCHERS (who predeceased her). Doreen much enjoyed the creativity with which she was blessed. Her artistry found its way to all corners of the family home and beyond, as her children fondly remember. Of the Hogan clan, Doreen leaves behind her brother Art (Verna) and sisters Senja, Monica, Josie, and Pat (Mello), all their children, and many more from her siblings who predeceased her. She also leaves behind Soeur Jeanne d'Arc DESROCHERS, C.S.C., and the families of Lucien and his late sister Aline. Accompanying her physically this last journey were her devoted children, some having taken leave from work. The Palliative Care Unit of St. Mary's Hospital in Montréal provided all forms of support under the guidance of Dr. Josée Caron. Pat Guy improved spirits of all during her many visits to Doreen in hospital. Upon Doreen's return home, Liliane Mondoux contributed early mornings, and more, when most of this late-rising family were asleep. Finally, prayers from far and wide sustained Doreen throughout. As a final gesture of giving, Doreen donated her body to science. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation to charity would be welcome, to carry on her gift of generosity. Doreen simply requested Masses be said in her memory.
