MOIR, Sister Eleanore, C.S.J.
Peacefully, after a brief illness at Saint_Joseph's Motherhouse, Hamilton on March 16, 2006, in her 68th year as a Sister of Saint_Joseph. Daughter of the late Milas Paul MOIR and Catherine Theresa BROPHY. Predeceased by her sisters Mrs. Mary (George) DALES, Mrs. Ada (Anthony) FITZMAURICE, Mrs. Josephine (Joseph) MOORE, Mrs. Anne (Edward) STAHLBRODT, and Winnifred MOIR. Survived by her sisters Mrs. Jean (Edward) BAUER, Sister Mary William (Grace) C.S.J. (London), many nieces and nephews and the members of her religious family, the Sisters of Saint_Joseph of Hamilton. The Sisters of Saint_Joseph will welcome family and Friends at Saint_Joseph's Convent, Hamilton from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6: 30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 20. A Vigil Service will be held on Monday, March 20 at 7 p.m. Mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, March 21 at 10 a.m. at Saint_Joseph's Convent, Hamilton. Interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In 1942, Sister Eleanore graduated from Hamilton Normal School and began a lifelong ministry as a religious educator. She received her Bachelor of Arts from McMaster University in 1950. A lifelong learner herself, Sister Eleanore holds a myriad of specialist certificates and a host of post graduate credit courses taken to enhance her ministry of education. Sister taught in the primary grades in Hamilton, Brantford, Kenilworth and Dawson Creek. At the secondary level, she taught for seven years at Cathedral Girl's High School in Hamilton. She devoted 23 years of her ministry to the pupils of Saint_John's College in Brantford as a much appreciated and respected teacher and mentor. After her retirement from teaching, Sister Eleanore's interest in people invited her into the ministry of Pastoral Care. Integrity called her to become C.A.P.P.E. certified in order to be as prepared as possible to minister to God's people. She exercised her ministry of care at Saint_Joseph's Hospital, Brantford, Saint_Joseph's Hospital, Hamilton and Hamilton General Hospital through St. Patrick's Parish, Hamilton. One particular facet of her pastoral work delighted her heart and that was her volunteer ministry as a rehabilitation and pastoral care worker at Burtch Correctional Institute in Brantford and at Brantford City Jail. Later, she volunteered as a literacy instructor at Hamilton City Jail. Sister Eleanore's long commitment to the education of young people and an engagement with their needs in these complex times gave her a particular compassion and sensitivity for troubled youth and those caught in the trap of drug and other addictions. In 2001, declining health forced Sister Eleanore to give up her active involvement in the ministry and she turned her full attention to the ministry of prayer for the many intentions that came her way, never forgetting those whose plight had claimed her attention during her years of active ministry. The absence of Sister Eleanore's serene, generous and prayerful self will linger forever.

LEWIS, Don (a.k.a. Lewis GORDON)
With sadness we announce the passing of Don LEWIS, at his home in Stratford, Ontario, on Thursday, February 9, 2006. He was 70 years old. Don, who acted under the name of Lewis GORDON, was a member of the Stratford Festival Acting Company for 34 seasons and appeared in nearly 100 productions. Festival fans will remember his appearances as Falstaff in Henry IV, Touchstone in As You Like It, Puck in A Midsummer Nights Dream and as Father Damien in the one-person play, Damien. Don was born in Toronto on August 7, 1935 to Gordon LEWIS and Evelyn (Jocelyn) LEWIS. In 1957, fresh out of the Ontario College of Art, Don read in the newspaper that Festival designer Tanya MOISEIWITSCH was visiting Toronto. Don took his portfolio to Ms. MOISEIWITSCH at her hotel. So impressed was she with his art that she hired him on the spot as a prop-maker. His career as an actor began almost by accident. He was asked by an actor friend to appear as a scene partner in an audition for Festival artistic director Michael LANGHAM. The next day, Mr. LANGHAM pulled Don aside and told him "We're not going to hire your friend, but how would you like to be in the company?" In addition to the Stratford Festival, Don also appeared at the Shaw Festival, the Grand Theatre (London, Ontario) and Theatre Calgary. Don always had a love-hate relationship with acting and it was his art that truly fed his soul. Don designed the costumes for the Festival's 1967 production of Colours in the Dark. He also produced murals, posters and exhibitions for the Festival over the years as well as collages, drawings and other artwork. Don was an accomplished photographer and among company members it was always a treat when Don asked you to pose for his camera. Cremation has taken place and a private funeral will be held later this year in Harrington, Ontario, where Don lived for 21 years.
