GEDDES, Paul Stewart
In loving memory of Paul Stewart GEDDES
September 24th, 1990
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glitz on the snow.
When you awake in the morning hush, to circled birds in quiet flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die.
We miss you more than words could ever say!
Love never dies, Lori, Diane, Alan and David

MacCORMACK, Elizabeth Ann
On July 1, 2007, Elizabeth Ann MacCORMACK, beloved daughter of John R. MacCORMACK, Prof. Emeritus of History, Saint Mary's University and Ann Vibeke MacCORMACK, formerly of London, England, and wife of Paul JENKINS, died after an arduous but gallant battle against the ravages of multiple sclerosis. Elizabeth was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 12, 1961 and after attending public schools in Halifax and Cambridge, England, graduated in Honours History from the University of King's College in 1983. She was active in the media and for some time a production assistant of the well known ATV program, Live at Five. She also strongly supported Amnesty International.
Following her 1989 marriage to Paul they spent some five years in Japan teaching English as a second language in Osaka where, it may be noted, her school employed her picture to advertise itself on subway trains. Leaving Japan, they spent time in Spain, close to four years in Mexico, before arriving in Kensington Market, Toronto in 2000.
Eventually her relentlessly progressing illness necessitated hospitalization. She enjoyed the expert and loving care of the staff of the Queen Elizabeth Centre (Toronto Rehab) before final transfer to Saint_Joseph's Intensive Care Unit. The family would like now to express their deep gratitude to the staffs of both institutions, her former caregivers and particularly to Alex GEDDES for his many visits that Elizabeth much appreciated and to her her aunt Mary MacFADYEN and cousins Christie and Sandy MacFADYEN who so eased her last months.
She is survived by her husband Paul; parents; sister Kirsten MacCORMACK (Donald WESTIN;) brothers Allan (Annie Yu Chen;) John nieces Katrina, Fiona, Alison, Ai; nephews Niall, Tamaki, Chen San; aunts Mary MacFADYEN, Anna GEDDES, Margaret HODGKIN, Elizabeth HILL; and many loving cousins in Canada, England and Denmark.
A "Remembering Elizabeth" gathering will be held at 6: 30 p.m. on Thursday, July 5, 2007 in the Cafeteria of Queen Elizabeth Centre, 130 Dunn Avenue., Toronto. Her funeral will take place at a later date in Halifax. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Elizabeth's memory to Amnesty International, St. Christopher House or the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
