GRANT, Doreen Violet (née COWAN) (February 21, 1924-June 3, 2007)
In her 84th year, as a result of a debilitating stroke, Doreen passed away surrounded by her family and under the compassionate care of the staff at Sunnybrook Hospital. Even though she was paralyzed and without speech, Doreen was able to communicate expressions of her love to the members of her family and Friends at her bedside with a smile and a squeeze of the hand. She was predeceased in 1983 by her husband of over 40 years, William (Bill) A. GRANT, an executive of Philips Electronics. She leaves behind her family: daughter Margaret, daughter Karen (Larry JACKSON,) daughter-in-law Carol GRANT and son Hugh (Sheri PURCELL.) She is lovingly remembered by her four grandchildren, Scott (Liz PLATTS), Tracey (Dave PENDER), Joni BRUNTON (Andrew LAMORE), and Kate JACKSON; and one great-grandchild, Jessica MacDONALD and many beloved nieces and nephews. Her two remaining brothers, Bert COWAN (Sue) of Vancouver and George COWAN (Lena) of Port Colborne also mourn her passing. She is predeceased by her siblings: Het NURSE, Boyd COWAN and Mary JOHNSON. Doreen remained vigorous, vibrant and independent until her stroke. She lived in her own home, carefully tended her own gardens and played bridge with a number of groups. 'Granny' was a welcome and active participant in the lives of her children and their families. The day of the stroke she was taking pleasure in the warm spring sun from her seat on the front porch swing of her home. Through her life Doreen was an active force in everything in which she became involved. Through the fifties and sixties, summers at the 'Lake of Two Rivers' cottage meant all the Algonquin Park staff knew her by name. She was also active in the Progressive Conservative Party at both the federal and provincial levels, participating in many election and leadership campaigns. Following cremation, a visitation will be held at the Pine Hills Visitation, Chapel and Reception Centre, 625 Birchmount Road, Toronto (416-267-8229) on Sunday, June 10, 2007 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A Memorial Celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation or Sunnybrook Health Science Centre.

CLARKE, Margaret " Rita" (née COWAN)
(February 18, 1927-May 28th 2007)
Passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer. Rita was with her children, Ted (Connie), Dianne (Michel) and Louise (Bill), until the end, where they spent hours listening to the Big Band Music of the 40's and Scottish Piper tunes. Rita was a member of the KW Scottish Country Dancing Club which she enjoyed and was passionate about until she no longer could remember the steps, but always enjoyed the sound of the music until the end. She will be missed by her grandchildren Jason, Justin, Scott, Tanya, Andrea and Tess and her closest friend Skeeter Budd. Rita retired from the University of Waterloo, where she showed her skill of working with Budgets, but best known for working with people. Rita enjoyed golfing, curling, dancing, bridge and especially visiting with her brothers (Jimmy and Peter) and her sisters (Jean, Dot, Chrissie, Joey) in Scotland, England, Isle of Man, and Boston. By request of Rita, a Cremation was completed and a private family remembrance was held June 16, at the home of her son, 422 MacKay Court, Burlington, Ontario L7L 5M8, where a Scottish Piper played for the enjoyment of all as we lifted a glass to the wonderful memories of Rita.

FERRIS, Francis Grant
(October 31, 1940-December 23, 2007)
Passed away on Sunday December 23, 2007 at the Saugeen Memorial Hospital in Southampton. Francis (Grant) of Port Elgin was in his 68th year. Grant was an enthusiastic outdoorsman who worked diligently over his lifetime to protect and preserve the environment. One of his great loves was fishing on the Saugeen River where his motto was “catch and release”. Another love was motorcycles, and he spent many happy days riding his Gold Wing along county roads with his motorcycle buddies from Guelph. He was a proud member of the Grey Bruce Motorcycle Touring Club, Outdoor Writers of Canada, the Sydenham Sportsman Association, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Lake Huron Fishing Club, Friends of MacGregor Point Provincial Park, Blue Ridge Sportman's Club, Ducks Unlimited, National Wild Turkey Federation, co-founder and writer for the Grey/Bruce Outdoors Webpage, and many others. But his greatest love was for his family. He will be forever missed by his wife of 38 years, Gloria (FARYON,) and his children Frank, Russ (Manie) of Milton, Lara INNEO (Vito) of Guelph, and Alyssa (Shawn MacPHERSON) of Cambridge. He was a proud and loving Papa to Olyvia INNEO and Talia FERRIS. He is also survived by his dear sisters Dianne DOEKES (Charles) and Donna WARNER (Ralph,) nephews Lee and Steve COWTAN, Daryl WARNER, and nieces Cheryl KLIMM and Jen WARNER. Also surviving are the many lifelong Friends he loved as brothers and sisters. He truly cherished them. Grant was predeceased by his parents Frank Cyril FERRIS and Olive Ada COLLINGRIDGE, and also an infant daughter, Jessica. Cremation has taken place and a private committal will take place at Woodland Cemetery, Guelph, at a later date. If anyone wishes, donations can be made to any of the environmental groups listed above (cards available at the funeral home 519-822-4731 or send condolences at www.gilbertmacintyreandson.com). A battle bravely fought, a sense of humour that never quit, and a story for every occasion. Ride free now, Grant.
