THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, Catharine (1915-2007)
On December 5, 2007 Catharine left this world to join her much loved husband Rhys. With support of daughters Carol and Brenda (and her husband Barry), the help of kind caregivers, wonderful neighbours and the Grace in home Palliative Care Program, Catharine achieved her wish to die in her own home. Her final years were enhanced by her loyal canine companion Mandy.
Catharine was a devoted friend, enjoying an active social life with many Friends and neighbours. One needed to book early if you wanted to go to a movie or lunch. The Leafs, Argos and golf have lost an avid fan. Catharine and sister-in-law Aileen kept the rest of us up to date on all the scores.
Catharine will be remembered by her seven grandchildren, Cathy CRAVEN (John), Nancy CLARK, David CLARK, Karen Clark LE POOLE (Chris.) Michael, Christopher (Jennifer) and Rebecca YOUNG-as the quiet, strong, determined lady that they loved and respected.
The addition of great-grandchildren Julianna, Joshua, and Jasper brought Catharine much pleasure. She anxiously waited for the birth of the newest great-grandchild Finn.
Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with smashed carrots, apple pie and dingle cake, will all evoke good memories of family times together.
Nana you will live on as Cathariine the Great our beloved Mother and Nana whose quiet nature, and sound ethics have endured life's many tests. You have set the bar high through the example of your life. We are proud of you Nana. We aspire to make you proud of us. We will honour your wishes-we will remember and miss you, but we will let you go.
At Catharine's request cremation and burial have taken place.

McKEAG, Honorary Colonel (Retired) The Honourable William John, CM, OM, CD, B. Comm., LL.D
At home on Thursday, August 23, 2007 William John (Jack) McKEAG died surrounded by his family. Beloved husband of Dawn CAMPBELL for 56 years. 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

BELL, Douglas Hindmarsh
Metallurgical engineer, marathon runner, cyclist, skier, party animal, raconteur, doting grandfather. Born August 12, 1932, in Toronto. Died September 26 in Ottawa of a brain tumour, aged By Gerry CRAWFORD, Page L6
Doug was an early James Dean, rebel-without-a-cause type at high school in north Toronto in the late 1940s. Black leather Eisenhower jacket, black "strides" pinched at the ankles, a loop of chain dangling from his belt and a cigarette drooping from his lips.
We became fast Friends in metallurgical engineering at the University of Toronto in the fall of 1952 and, after graduation in 1956, pursued doctoral programs at the Royal School of Mines in London.
In the summer of 1957, we took a six-week European camping trip in a 1932 Austin 10, a black, boxy affair with mechanical brakes. We puttered through most of Europe before the brakes fell apart. A French mechanic got us safely back on the road.
Doug returned home in 1960. The next year, he began working in Arvida, Quebec, where he met Joan ATKINSON. They married in 1963 and moved to Toronto two years later, where they successively produced Jonathan, Tony and Lisa.
Doug worked with consulting engineering firms before starting at the Ontario government, where he worked from 1972 to 1985. He then moved to Ottawa to work for the federal government until his retirement in 1995.
As an amateur mechanic in the late 1980s, Doug restored a 1964 Jaguar XKE. In the early 1990s, he and Joan bought a property in Mont Tremblant, where they built a retirement home and for several years ran a bed and breakfast. He was in his element chatting with clients while Joan prepared breakfast.
Doug enjoyed many years there running, biking and skiing. He also found time to undertake renovations at home and for others.
Doug loved a party. He had an insatiable curiosity for the latest scientific discoveries. An avid reader, his tastes ranged from cosmology to subatomic physics to ancient history.
In June, a few weeks after completing a 50-kilometre bike tour in Montreal, he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. Chemotherapy, steroids and radiation were tried over a "summer from hell," to no avail.
When I last saw him in hospital in Ottawa, he was awake but could not speak. It was sad to see this man who had been so energetic reduced to little more than a beating heart. Two days later, it stopped.
Doug passed his 75th birthday in hospital. After his death, Joan arranged a birthday party, as was his wish. Family, Friends and grandchildren gathered to celebrate "Poppy's" life and to blow out the candles on his cake.
Gerry CRAWFORD is Doug's friend.

O'FARRELL, William
Friend, mentor, film producer and director. Born December 7, 1929, in Ottawa. Died September 27 in Hull, Quebec, of natural causes, aged 77.
By Elaine O'FARRELL, Page L6
Growing up in Ottawa's tough Irish neighbourhood, Bill O'FARRELL probably never dreamed he would one day bring home Canada's first Oscar for a feature film.
Bill was the son of an Ottawa accountant and he grew up to be a driving force behind the Canadian film industry.
Bill joined Crawley Films in the 1940s. He got his start as a gofer, sweeping the floor, driving the truck, hauling cans of film. But he quickly worked his way up through the industry.
Over the years, he worked as a cinematographer, writer, director and producer of films, eventually becoming vice-president of Crawley Films, launched in 1939 by Budge CRAWLEY. Bill led a passionate life as a producer and director of Canadian films.
In the early years, he travelled across Canada to film Canadian Football League games and golf tournaments. Bill was instrumental in the success of many groundbreaking Canadian films. They include the award-winning The Loon's Necklace, The Rowdyman, The Luck of Ginger Coffey and Janis, a biopic about the tragic life of singer Janis Joplin.
Over the years, Bill worked with the who's who of Canadian stage and screen, from Christopher Plummer to Geneviève Bujold, Rich Little, Fred Davis and Lorne Greene.
He played an important part in helping to bring home Canada's first Academy Award for a feature film for The Man Who Skied Down Everest. One of his proudest moments was bringing home the gold-plated statuette to show family and Friends.
In its 50th year, Crawley Films went bankrupt. With the sheriff banging at the door, Bill helped to preserve the cans of film that were Crawley's legacy. The films were donated to the National Archives of Canada.
Like his Irish father before him, Bill was a wonderful storyteller who would entertain family and Friends at the kitchen table with colourful tales about the past.
He loved to tell the story about how he won my mother's hand.
One night, he was challenged to a late-night poker game by her French-Canadian grandmother, Granny GOYETTE. After he won a few games, she said he was a good man. She agreed that my mother should accept his hand in marriage.
In his youth, he'd go to the pool hall or play a few games of poker to win enough money to take my mom out on a date.
Although film was his first love, Bill loved a glass of wine and settling down with a good mystery. He enjoyed golf, evening swims and Frank Sinatra. He loved to play with Skipper, his Irish fox terrier.
But his greatest joy was his family - his dear wife, Velma, his three kids, Bill, Leslie and Elaine, and his six grandchildren.
Elaine O'FARRELL is Bill O'FARRELL's daughter.
