WELD, James Dewar McLaurin "Jim"
Born Ottawa 10 September 1921. Died 29 November 2007 at the General Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. Beloved husband of Magdalene Selma WELD, father of James Currie (Kelly DAVISON) of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Dorothy Ingrid (Kurt BOEDDINGHAUS) of Germany, and Madeline May (Alan CLARKE) of Ottawa, Ontario. Proud grandfather of Michael WELD of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Ansel CLARKE and Derwin CLARKE of Ottawa.
Jim attended the University of Toronto where he studied political science, social legislation and economics, graduating with first class honours in 1943. He served as second lieutenant in the Canadian Army in an intelligence capacity from 1943 to 1945. After the war, Jim joined the Department of External Affairs. He served briefly in Paris, then at the Canadian Military Mission in Berlin, Germany, where he met his future wife, Magdalene Selma BOEDDINGHAUS. They married on November 26, 1949. Jim worked for External Affairs until 1970 and served in New York City (1953-1957), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1959-1963), Karachi and Islamabad, Pakistan (1965-1967), and Berne, Switzerland (1967-1970). In 1970, Jim began work in the Department of Secretary of State and later for the National Capital Commission. He retired in the late 1970s. In 1981, he and Magda built themselves a winter home in Fort Myers which they enjoyed for two decades and sold in 2001.
During the last years of his life, Jim was plagued by many illnesses, including dementia, kidney failure, and respiratory disease. In September 2006, Jim and Magda left their Ottawa home of 50 years and moved into the Colonel By Retirement Residence. Jim's family thanks all those who attended to his care at the Ottawa hospital and at Colonel By.
Friends are invited to visit at the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa, on Sunday, December 16th, between 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, December 17th at 2 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, 140 Laurier Ave. West, Ottawa.
