SISSING, Roelof
We are thankful for the life of Roelof SISSING, and that we were allowed to share part of his long life of one hundred and five years. To be able to think of all the beautiful moments we shared with him we are especially thankful. He is gone from us now, on Tuesday, February 28th, 2006, but he will forever be in the hearts of those he touched. Roelof was born on July 22, 1900 in The Netherlands. He married Alida Henderika SPIER in 1928, the love of his life. They started their lives together on board ship, the Dageraad II, and raised six children on board. When the war broke out, and in the middle of the bombardment, he and mom did their best to keep us safe. In 1944 when the Germans confiscated his ship he kept us safe and together. Then in 1951 two of his daughters married and came to Canada. The following year he brought the rest of his family to Canada and started over. He believed in keeping the family together and safe. The family grew with more marriages and of course grandchildren. In October of 1982, the love of his life Alida died and in 1983 he lost his son Jurrien. Community service has always been part of his life. He served as a medic in World War I, and a volunteer fireman in Holland. He served with the Saint John's Ambulance in Ingersoll for many years, also feeding patients at Alexandra Hospital. He received the Governor General's Award, Heart of Gold Award and Ingersoll Citizen's Award for his services.

THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Ken -- I Remember
By Pat SISSON, Page S11
Pat SISSON of Toronto also writes about Ken THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON.
I am another one of those people who had the pleasure of walking my dog in the same part of town as Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON did. One could always count on him to ask how your dogs were, or to bend down to share some of the love. He cherished his dogs and was eager to tell stories of their lives and adventures. He had been known to change business meetings in order to spend time with his "pack." To hear that he died with one of those treasured animals with him brings some comfort.
A couple of summers back, I was walking around the park with my nephew when we came on Mr. THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. After having yet another wonderful talk about our pets, we went on our way. "That man is a billionaire," I told my nephew, at which point he replied: "Aunt Patty, you tell the best stories!"

SISSONS, Joan (née GALLAGHER)
It is with deepest sorrow that the family of Joan SISSONS (nee GALLAGHER) announces her passing on May 16, 2006. Joan is survived by her two daughters, Jackie and Sharlene, six grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. How do you sum up a life in an obituary notice Joan was a mom to Sharlene, Jackie and their husbands, Tim and Bob. She was "Nan" to Jack, Bradley, Barry, Sean, Kathryn and Bryan. To Maddie and Jane, she was "great Nan." She was kind, smart, funny and always loving. She had such a zest for life! She listened to your problems and never judged you. She offered advice only when you requested it. She saw good in everyone and she loved her family above all else. Mom was an avid bridge player (some would say a card shark), devoured a book every day and never tired of learning and experiencing new things. In 1992 the love of her life, our father Jack, died after a brief battle with cancer. We never thought Mom could survive such a loss as our parents were so devoted to each other, but she forged ahead with life. Three years after Dad's death, she sold the home he built and moved to London to be closer to Jackie, her eldest daughter, and her family. We thought she'd be nearer to us and we could help her with things, but in reality, she was the one who always helped us. We don't know what we would have done without her living so nearby. Mom made new Friends in London (Mary, Moira, Rachel, Bizerka, Mary Kathryn and Elaine to name a few). She loved getting together with her Friends, Connie and John, for a game of bridge. We had to each throw in a dollar before every bridge game, and more often than not, she went home with the pot! Our, dear Friends, John and Debbie, became her dear Friends as well. We always said she was a teenager trapped in an older body. Newcomers kept her busy and she enjoyed the many Friends she made through the organization. She belonged to St. Pius the X Church and found great comfort in attending weekly mass. Every year she flew out to Calgary to spend Christmas with Sharlene and her family. It became a tradition after Dad died. She delighted in all the activities of her grandchildren and they thought Nan was "cool." She kept in touch with her Friends and relatives in Falconbridge and area (Betty, Agnes, Norma, Bob, Lana and Joe Mulligan come to mind). We're so grateful we had Mom for as long as we did, but if we could multiply the time by 100, it would still be far too short. Until we see you again, Mom… Love, your family. As per Mom's request, there will be no funeral or visitation. Expressions of sympathy or donations (Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice) would be appreciated and may be made through London Cremation Services, 672-0459 or online at www.londoncremation.com.
