BURNETT
In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, Joan, who passed away December 30, 2002.
If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for us,
Place them in our Mother's arms
And tell her they're from us.
Tell her we love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
We do it every day.
But there's an ache within our hearts
Because we are missing her today.
Always remembered in our hearts, Linda, Karen, Kevin, Randy, Murray, Bruce and families.

Loving and devoted wife for 29 years of Frederick KNOWLES who passed away in 1972. Loving mother and mother-in-law of Rosemary and Harvey BRUNER, Carolyn KNOWLES and Guy BONNETTA, and Ansy KROUGLICOF and Harold KNOWLES. Dear grandmother of Katie (Neil MARUOKA), Emily (Vadim KAZAKOV), Jennifer, Maggie, Heidi, Andrew, Nicholas, and Jonathan. Mom's last outing was on April 25th, 2007 when she visited her great-granddaughter Molly Noelle MARUOKA who was just nine days old. Mavis will be sadly missed by her brothers and sisters-in-law Nancy and Kenneth MALLINSON (Langley, British Columbia), Pat BURNS and John MALLINSON (Lachine, Quebec), Audrey KNOWLES (Pointe Claire, Quebec), Mary BRANDON (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) and Isobel and Doug CLERK (Fenelon Falls, Ontario,) her nieces, nephews and cousins. Mavis is predeceased by her brothers Robert and Harold MALLINSON. She has relatives and Friends right across Canada, from British Columbia to the Atlantic Provinces and will be fondly remembered by them all. Mom was born in Montreal on July 9th, 1920, the daughter of Donalda Grace (WOOD) and George James MALLINSON. She graduated from West Hill High School in 1938. After completing a secretarial course, she worked at Ciba Company and Allied War Supplies. As the daughter of an National Hockey League referee, she had a great love of sports throughout her life. She was a member of the Notre-Dame de Grace Tennis Club and spent many winter weekends in the Laurentians skiing. After her marriage to Fred in 1943, the couple enjoyed teaching their children how to have fun. Ice skating, swimming, bike riding, fishing and going on picnics were family pastimes. For many years, Mavis and Fred were enthusiastic members of the Montreal West Curling Club. Mom was also an active member of Westmount Baptist Church and taught Bible study at the church's summer retreat in the Eastern Townships, Cedar Lodge. In 1979, Mom moved to Brampton to be closer to her grandchildren. She took up lawn bowling and joined the local Brampton club. In early 1989, Mom was introduced to John McINTOSH. The happy couple married and moved to Belleville where they enjoyed visits with John's family. Mom was a member of the Belleville Newcomers Club and Ladies Euchre Group. As well as ensuring her children were well educated, Mom passed on to them a great love of music. She was herself part of many musical organizations. She sang in the Westmount Baptist Choir and the Brampton Choral Society, and was a member of the Sandalwood Chime Choir. She loved listening to performances of the Metropolitan Opera on the radio and tolerated her son's rock band practices in the basement of the Belmore Avenue home. Mom was a helpful daughter, a caring sister, a good wife and a wonderful mother. She was a proud and loving grandmother. Most important of all, you could not ask for a better friend. We will all miss her infectious laugh. Many thanks to the staff at Sandalwood who looked after Mom with kindness, patience, and understanding. Also, thank-you to the nursing staff in Ward 4A at the Peel Memorial Hospital. A private cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held in the chapel at Montreal Memorial Park, 3955 Cote de Liesse, St. Laurent, Quebec, on June 23rd, 2007 at 12: 00 noon, followed by interment.

Loving father of Janis (Clifton RICHARDSON,) Darcy (Tom CRAWFORD), Kelly and Douglas (Onalea GILBERTSON), and grandfather of Scott and Colin REES and Stephanie (Alan SAMUELS,) Shannon and Matthew CRAWFORD. Survived by niece Ellen (Kowalski) sisters-in-law Sharon (Vic NAIMISH), Sonya (Scott WRIGHT), Dilly (Bill BURNS) and Pat (Drewett) and one brother-in-law Keith CAMPBELL. Jack was born on March 17, 1928 to Thomas and Isabelle McKEAG in Beresford, Manitoba. He was 18 months old when a car/train collision at Chater, Manitoba killed his mother and older sister. Jack was thrown clear, unharmed, and with the consent of his father, was adopted by George H. McKEAG (cousin of Thomas) and his wife Elizabeth BIGGAR. Jack grew up in Winnipeg, attending Queenston, Robert H. Smith and Kelvin Schools. He graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1949 with a Bachelor of Commerce. He then joined the family business Security Storage Ltd. (sold to British Traction in 1956) remaining there until 1960, serving as President 1952-60. He helped found McKeag-Harris Realty, latter known as McKeag Realty, and maintained an active role until 2000. Jack was a 'generous and giving guy' who volunteered in his beloved Winnipeg in a great variety of causes. He was a life-long member of St. Andrew's River Heights United Church. He joined the Kiwanis Club in 1951 and thoroughly enjoyed his association, keeping up contact with Friends that he met and worked with in the organization. He served as the President of the Winnipeg Club and as District Governor of the 67 Clubs in Western Canada. The family excursions to Kiwanis conventions across Canada and the U.S.A. rank high in memorable family trips, full of happenings and mis-happenings. Jack loved politics and worked locally for the Liberal party through many elections. In 1977, Prime Minister Trudeau appointed Jack as Lieutenant-Governor of the province of Manitoba, a position he held for 6 years. He was deeply honoured to have served Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. He enjoyed travelling the province, attending fairs, festivals and curling bonspiels. Over 36,000 people from all walks of life attended functions at Government House. Following his tenure as Lieutenant-Governor, Jack returned to the business sector. During this time he served on a number of Boards of Directors provincially, nationally and internationally. These Boards of Directors included: Canadian Motorways Ltd. (1963-80); M.E.P.C. Canadian Properties Ltd. (1974-77); The Investors Group (1975-98) Johnson and Higgins Willis Faber Ltd. (1976-92); Grace General Hospital (1976-86); Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature (1976-84) Greater Winnipeg Gas Company (1978-86); Norcen Energy Resources Ltd. (1980-86); The Council for Canadian Unity (1981-87); Governor of the Olympic Trust of Canada (1983-91) and various community organizations. He was also a member of the St. Charles Country Club, The Manitoba Club, and past member of Winnipeg Winter Club, and Lakewood Country Club. Jack loved duck hunting with his Friends and family. He became a member of Ducks Unlimited (Canada) in 1976, serving as President 1984-85 and as Chairman 1986-88. He was a big booster of the Winnipeg Jets too, serving as President 1976-77) In 1973, Jack was appointed Honorary Colonel of the Fort Garry Horse, enthusiastically supporting the regiment until retirement in 1998. Jack was the recipient of many honours during his lifetime, including: The Knight of Grace in the Canadian Priory of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint_John of Jerusalem (1971), Knight of Justice (1982); Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal (1978); Canadian Decoration (1986), Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation (1993) Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal. Jack and Dawn were keen travellers and covered a great part of the world. Always, however Winnipeg was home. The favourite place for the family to gather each summer was at Granite Lake, Ontario. In spite of all Jack's honours and activities, he always had time for his family activities - be it school, hockey, soccer, baseball, swim meets or the horse barn. He was always ready with a little 'walking around money' for 'his Buds'. For the first time since 1980, Jack could not spend part of the winter in Sarasota, Florida. He was too ill to travel. During his illness, Jack was looked after by a legion of caring people at the Grace Hospital and by the Home Care and their Palliative Care Unit. Angels All! It allowed him to die at home in the midst of his family. A special thanks to Doctor T. Morgan and Colonel Max Ryan. The service for William John (Jack) McKEAG will take place on Wednesday, August 29, 2007 at 1: 00 p.m. at St. Andrew's River Heights United Church, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Internment will take place at a latter date. The pallbearers will be members of the Fort Garry Horse Regiment. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in fond tribute to Jack's Memory can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or the Manitoba Diabetes Association or a charity of your choice. Neil Bardal Inc. (204) 949-2200 www.nbardal.mb.ca

Mary Bates BURNS, 89: Swing singer
Mary Bates Burns was a hit with the troops and once turned down a date with Frank Sinatra
By Matthew CHUNG, Staff Reporter
She was a decorated World War 2 veteran with "perfect pitch."
Mary Bates BURNS went from making bottle tops in a factory to entertaining overseas troops with a featured singing role in the wartime revue "Meet the Navy."
She later shared stages, and radio waves, with legends of the swing era and, according to family lore, once rejected a romantic overture from Frank Sinatra.
"Mary never did make a big thing about her celebrity status," said her sister, Peg HARRIS, 85, from her home in Prince Edward Island. "She certainly was a celebrity in Toronto."
BATES BURNS performed for much of her career as Mary BATES but later took her second husband's surname. She died December 19 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, after a brief illness, at age 89.
Born June 6, 1917 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, she moved with her family six years later to Toronto's east end, near Pape Ave. and Gerrard St. E.
Her voice got noticed by co-workers in a factory and they encouraged her to try out for a local quartet. She got the job and performed with Jack ALLISON, Bill BOUNSALL and Helen RICHARDSON as The Crushy Swingers, after a successful audition for Orange Crush Co.
They quickly made a splash in the Canadian music scene, garnering airplay on CFRB and being featured on a radio broadcast put on by The Toronto Star Fresh Air Fund.
The quartet was spotted that summer by Rudy Vallee, the famous 1930s American crooner known for singing through a megaphone, as they performed at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Impressed, Vallee asked the group to sing on his Thursday evening NBC radio show broadcast from New York.
The performance was such a success BATES BURNS and the others moved to the Big Apple and made more appearances on Vallee's show as The Swing Kids. They disbanded in the late 1930s, and she launched her solo career.
BATES BURNS appeared as a featured vocalist with many large swing orchestras including The Modernaires.
In front of a microphone, BATES BURNS was "Marvellous… she was just a natural," her sister said.
It was back in Toronto, at the Canadian National Exhibition around the start of World War 2, that BATES BURNS rubbed shoulders with Frank Sinatra, then in the early years of his career.
"I think the story was, he asked did she know where a guy could get a drink?" said BATES BURNS's daughter, Kate BURNS Rapley, in a phone interview from England.
"He then said was there any chance of him having some company with that drink?"
BATES BURNS, married at the time to musician Ken ADAMSON, declined. She and ADAMSON were later divorced.
BATES BURNS joined the Canadian navy in World War 2 as a member of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Services. She was a featured act in the "Meet the Navy" musical show that entertained soldiers stationed across Canada.
It was a dangerous time and "sad too, because you lost so many Friends in those days," said another sister, Betty JESSHOPE, 82, from her home in Oakville.
In 1944, "Meet the Navy" went overseas, playing around England. During a five-month run at London's Hippodrome theatre in 1945, the show received a rave from Beverley Baxter in the London Evening Standard.
"You don't have to visit the Hippodrome out of any sense of duty," she wrote. "The Canadian Navy has sailed up the Thames and London is its prisoner."
JESSHOPE said servicemen turned out to be an appreciative audience for her sister.
"In the navy show, the first time (BATES BURNS) sang… I think they had a hard time getting (soldiers) to shut up," JESSHOPE said, "because the young men just kept clapping her on."
After the war, "Meet the Navy" was shot as a film in Britain with BATES BURNS as a featured vocalist.
England also provided her with a second husband, accomplished saxophone player Bob BURNS, whom she wed in 1948. BATES BURNS performed there in 1950 with orchestra leader Bert Ambrose at Ciro's, a popular nightclub of the time. The pair had a son, Rob, in 1948, and daughter Kate in 1952.
BATES BURNS retired from singing professionally soon after the birth of her daughter and, around the same time, was divorced from BURNS.
She returned to Canada and worked as an electrologist for a while, moved back to England for a few years in the 1970s and then came back to Canada for good.
"I think she was never really sure where she wanted to be," said Kate. "She had gone back and forth all her life."
In fact, BATES BURNS made one last trip across the Atlantic in August, paying a three-week visit to Kate and her three children.
"She was very bright, she had all her faculties," said Kate.
BATES BURNS remained close with many Friends from the swing era, including composer Robert Farnon and Bert Pearl, bandleader on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio's popular program The Happy Gang.
And she still loved to sing when together with family. "I don't think she ever appreciated how good (a vocalist) she was herself," JESSHOPE said.
