Celebration of Life Service
On Saturday afternoon, May 26 a Celebration of Life service was held for John Oliver RITCHIE in the Annesley United Church, Markdale when a large crowd of Friends and relatives attended.
Prior to the service Bill McMEEKIN provided bagpipe music as the people entered the church. He concluded with playing the hymn "O God of Bethel", a family favourite and the hymn which was played as the Ritchie forefathers boarded the ship to come to Canada.
The eulogy was given by his sister, Rosemary RITCHIE, who related about growing up on the Old Durham Road, Artemesia Township the son and daughter of John and Sadie (Sarah OLIVER) RITCHIE and attending the Old Durham Road School. She recalled many experiences of their young and teenage years and then of John Oliver going off to train for a nurse. She recalled how he graduated from the Owen Sound General and Marine Hospital then obtained his B.A. from Waterloo University before heading west in 1974.
He chose to live in Delta, British Columbia where his great-uncle and former British Columbia premier, John OLIVER, had settled. There he enjoyed nature, creating a wonderful garden and walking his dogs.
He completed a M.A. at Simon Fraser University and became a teacher at the Faculty of Health Sciences at Douglas College where he taught for 30 years. He was much loved and admired by colleagues and students alike.
He enjoyed music and sang with the Vancouver Bach Choir for several years in performances of Handel's Messiah, the Aida performance at British Columbia Place and subsequent travels to perform in Japan.
Rev. Mark WAUGH of Annesley United read scripture and gave the meditation.
George ACHESON and Marilyn GUY sang several solos and duets during the service.
Les MacKINNON, a cousin, recalled memories of John Oliver as did Katie HARRISON, a classmate.
Others taking part and recalling memories were Joe TAILOR/TAYLOR, Lynn MOREWOOD, Katherine HALL, and Mary HALL.
All classmates were presented with roses upon entering the church and at a specific time during the service went forward and placed them on the table at front of the church.
Following the service a time of fellowship was enjoyed in the church's Fellowship Hall.
John Oliver RITCHIE's ashes were interred in the family plot in Evergreen Cemetery, South Line, former Artemesia Township.

ACHESON, Lorne Victor
On August 1, 2007, a funeral service was held to celebrate the 86 year life of Lorne Victor Acheson who passed away suddenly on July 28, 2007.
Lorne was born and raised on a farm in Proton Township and as a boy, he attended S.S.#2 School sometimes known as the "Acheson School" until old enough to work on the farm. In 1942, he, along with his father, Stanley ACHESON, took over a live-stock trucking business that Lorne would continue to operate for 54 years.
On July 7, 1951, Lorne married Roma CHANDLER who had moved to the area as a high school mathematics teacher. Having been raised in the rather nomadic home of a United Church minister, Roma often commented that she never really had a permanent home until she met and married Lorne and adopted Dundalk as her home. Lorne and Roma raised a family of four children: Edward (Ted), Kenneth, Elizabeth (Beth), and Joyce. Roma passed away on November 24, 1979 after a lengthy battle with cancer and Lorne was to continue his life's journey on his own.
He continued on his own but definitely not alone While he kept busy at his trucking business, he also volunteered for years with the Dundalk Agricultural Society, as well as maintaining his involvement with the Dundalk Lions Club up until the time of his death. In his later years, he became a' "special friend" with Doris LANGDON and together they enjoyed two sets of in-laws, cousins and grandchildren. "Aunt" Doris was certainly the tonic that added years to his life.
Reverend Janet ERIKSEN officiated a service that was held in a packed church on a beautiful late summer day. Reverend Janet delivered the eulogy. Gospel readings were done by Lorne's granddaughters Olivia and Holly ACHESON. Olivia remembered a story of Grandpa, when learning that Olivia was going to England to study Archeology, telling her that there were lots of potatoes in Badjeros that needed digging. Jim DOLMER shared memories of "Uncle Lorne" when Jim was growing up and Janine GOSTICK shared her memories of "Grandpa." Ian LEITH played a lovely rendition of "Whispering Hope", Lorne's favourite gospel tune. Pallbearers were grand_sons Ted CLARKE, Allan CLARKE, Robert CLARKE, Jesse ACHESON, Steven GOSTICK, Kevin ACHESON, and Ryan ALDCORN. Flowerbearers were granddaughters Olivia ACHESON, Holly ACHESON, Melissa ACHESON, Heather ACHESON, Janine GOSTICK, Jackie CLARKE, Carlene ALDCORN, Randi ALDCORN, and Emily PHILLIPS. Special music was provided by Mary NICHOLLS, Dundalk United Church Choir, and Ian LEITH.
It is very hard to capsulize 86 years in a few paragraphs. A brief summary was included in the funeral service bulletin, simply titled:
Our Dad
A simple man in the best sense of the description. A humble man. A kind, loving and caring husband and father. A man who wanted only what he needed and needed little. Born and raised on a farm during the Depression, he was blessed with an inherent humility that, over his lifetime, became a more rare trait in people. Obviously we have no recollection of him as a youngster, only stories heard.
He loved the farm life. As hard-scrabble a life as it seems to us, he took pride (the little he had) in a job well done. He loved a new-born calf, a fat steer, a "hot" market, a fast trotter, and the smell of alfalfa curing in the windrow.
He loved his community and never yearned to move on to better opportunities elsewhere but rather to help improve the community he was in. As somewhat of a creature of habit, he loved his special places and routines. Anyone who knew him always knew where he could be found. Early mornings in his later years would find him at the Highway 10 Breakfast Club. On Sunday morning, he could be found in the same pew down to the left of the minister. On Tuesday morning he could be found at the Keady Auction Market in the same seat down to the left of the auctioneer. Just as he had been during his fifty-four year career as a live stock trucker, he continued to be a "morning person" in his retirement. He loved his church as any devout Christian would. Most of all, he loved his family. He loved family gatherings with a Sunday afternoon picnic on the front lawn. He loved his parents, his siblings, his wife, his special friend and her extended family and he loved us. He loved his many Friends that he met along the way. If you are reading this, should know that you were one of them.
