JONES, (Annie) Angus (née McEWAN)
Peacefully, on March 19th, 2006, at her residence at Chateau Gardens, London, Ann joined her beloved husband of 71 years, Ira Elbert JONES, who predeceased her on January 3rd, 2006. Annie Angus McEWAN was born to Charles Baskerville McEWAN and Mary Lachlan ANGUS on November 23rd, 1915, in Dundas, Ontario. Her Scots heritage on both sides of her house was a continuing source of pride to her that is shared by her children. Ann was the eldest of four siblings. Two have predeceased her: Marjorie (Donald) POWERS and Gordon McEWAN, both of London, Ontario. One surviving brother, John (Jack) McEWAN, lives in Vernon, British Columbia. Ira and Ann were married on June 1st, 1934 at the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints in Chatham, Ontario. Ann and Ira's six children remember her with great love and pride: Ira Gordon (Pat) JONES, Waterloo, Ontario; Elbert Angus (Zibby) JONES, Bayfield, Ontario; Marjorie Ann CUNNINGHAM, London, Ontario; Dorothy Louise (Luca) RICCIO, North Vancouver, British Columbia; Douglas Murray JONES, London, Ontario and Janet Mary (Helmut RIEGGER) JONES, London, Ontario. Fondly remembering their Grandmother are twelve grandchildren: Carolyn (David) KINGSTON of Ottawa; Clark (Karen) JONES of Mississauga; Evan (Kayo) JONES of Yasu City, Shiga, Japan; Matthew (Annette WEERES) JONES and Michael (Karen NOBLE) JONES of Stratford; Linda (Tim GOODALL) CUNNINGHAM, Lisa (Ben MOOGK) CUNNINGHAM, of Toronto; Sarah (Dan INNAMORATI) CUNNINGHAM of Vancouver; Nadia MOUSSEAU of Kingston; Silvia RICCIO and Davide RICCIO of North Vancouver and Hazel MILES of London. Gifted with a prodigious memory well into her eighties, Ann continued to acknowledge family anniversaries, birthdays, graduations and other milestones. Great Grannie Annie particularly enjoyed marking special events for the youngest ones, sending cards for Easter, Hallowe'en to her seven great grandchildren: Julia KINGSTON of Ottawa; Selena JONES and Colin JONES of Mississauga; Sean Ira JONES, Yasu City, Shiga, Japan; Leah JONES of Calgary; and Clara Ann GOODALL and Cameron McEwan GOODALL of Toronto. Ann and Ira resided at various times in a number of Southwestern Ontario locations: Chatham, Dresden, Hamilton, Dundas, Walkerton, Brantford and London. Prior to moving to the Longworth Retirement Residence in 2003, they lived for many years on Glenrose Drive in Byron. In 2004, she and Ira moved together to Chateau Gardens Long Term Care Residence in London. Ann was a member of the Woodfield Branch of the Community of Christ, in London. We remember the continuing pride and admiration in which she was held by Ira, for the courage she displayed during World War 2, when she held their family together, a dedicated mother to their children, managing all the while to be cheerful and resourceful, despite her concerns for Ira's safety overseas. Most of all, we will remember a cheerful, generous, selfless woman who spent a lifetime putting others first. We love her and we are sad to see her go but we take solace in the knowledge that Mom and Dad are together again, the way it has always been and the way they would want it to be forever. Cremation has taken place. Visitation in the Needham Funeral Chapel, 520 Dundas Street, London, on Saturday, April 8, 2006 from 2: 00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Service from the chapel at 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Ann's honour to your favourite charity would be greatly appreciated.

RICHARDSON, Hugh, 1913 -- Died This Day
Lawyer and judge born in London on July 31, 1826.
Called to the bar of Upper Canada in 1847, he lived in Woodstock, Ontario, until 1872, where he served as the Crown attorney for Oxford County. In 1872, he went to Ottawa as chief clerk of the Department of Justice and remained there until 1876, when he was made stipendiary magistrate in the North-West Territories. At the same time, he also held a seat on the Territorial Executive Council and served as legal adviser to the lieutenant-governor. In 1885, he secured a place in history when he presided at the trial of Louis RIEL, the leader of Northwest Rebellion. Sadly, he was not up to the job and may have been selected for just that reason. The trial was a plodding, procedural affair that remains controversial to this day. In 1887, he was made chief justice of the North-West Territories Supreme Court.

RIEL, Louis, 1885 -- Died This Day
Rebel, member of Parliament, political leader and teacher, born October 22, 1844, at St. Boniface, Red River Settlement (Man.)
The eldest of 11 children born to a highly respected Métis, he was devoutly Roman Catholic. He studied for the priesthood in Montreal, and then worked on and off as a clerk while drifting slowly homeward. He took up the Métis cause and protested against their unfair treatment by Ottawa. He led two uprisings in the Red River colony. During the first, he was forced to flee to the U.S. in March of 1870 after his men executed a settler from Ontario. While on the run, he was three times elected in absentia to the House of Commons. The second uprising came to a boil in March of 1885 when Métis leaders declared a provisional government with Riel as its leader. The North-West Rebellion that resulted was Canada's only civil war. Riel's forces were defeated by regular army and militia units and he was sentenced to death for treason and then hanged. Today, he is regarded as a founder of Manitoba.

BOWELL, Sir Mackenzie, 1917 -- Died This Day
Editor, publisher and politician born in Suffolk, England, on December 27, 1823
After arriving in Canada at 9 with his family, he left school to be apprenticed to a printer in Belleville, Ontario He later became editor and owner of the Belleville Intelligencer and, as an Orangeman, took an intense interest in politics. In 1867, he was elected member of Parliament for North Hastings, Ontario, in the first Parliament and achieved several distinctions, among which was his leading role in 1874 in having Louis RIEL expelled from the House. In 1878, he became minister of customs, the first of many portfolios he held until 1892 when he was named to the Senate. In 1894, he became Canada's fifth prime minister, but unhappiness over his leadership -- especially his inability to settle the Manitoba Schools Question -- brought about his resignation. He led the opposition in the Senate until 1906, when he retired to Belleville.
