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.

GRAY/GREY, Muriel May (née BEAUFIELD)
Passed peacefully away on Wednesday, December 12, 2007, at Arborstone Enhanced Care after a twelve-year struggle with Parkinson's Disease. She was in her 74th year and was predeceased in 2005 by her devoted and beloved husband of 46 years, Peter Forbes GRAY/GREY, her mother Margaret in 1996, father Charles in 1980 and brother Raymond in 2003. Leaving to mourn, her daughter Susan (Clayton DICKSON/DIXON) and grand_son Oliver, Halifax, Nova Scotia; son John (Lisa) and grand_son Gunnar, San Diego; two brothers, Calmond (Daisy), Ship Cove, Newfoundland, and Guy (Juanita), Saint_John's, Newfoundland and five sisters, Faye (Ross SWEENEY,) Halifax, Nova Scotia Marie (Scott SMITH), St. Andrews, New Brunswick; Patricia (Bud BEST) and Elaine (Hedley LANGDON,) St. Anthony, Newfoundland Pamela (Brian GUY,) Saint_John's, Newfoundland, and a large number of relatives and Friends. Described by her siblings as effortlessly clever, she completed high school at the age of fifteen and began teaching at the age of sixteen, first at L'Anse au Clair, Labrador, and later at her hometown, Raleigh. In 1953, after receiving her Laboratory Technician Certificate, she began working at the St. Clairs Mercy Hospital, Saint_John's, Newfoundland. Beautiful but shy, Muriel was introduced to her future husband Peter by a friend of the family. At the time, Peter was working with McNamara Construction building a highway in the Witless Bay area. He was young, handsome and had a charming wit that was rumoured to have won Muriel's heart by whispering in her ear 'You sure smell better than the guys at the bunkhouse!' Muriel and her family lived in Toronto, Ottawa, and Sudbury before moving to Halifax in 1973. Apart from being a dedicated mother, wife, and homemaker, she also worked for a time as an interior decorator and was known for her personal touch of having a 'sense of style'. Muriel was also respected as a tireless volunteer and committee member of the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron where she served for some thirtythree years. Muriel was beautiful in mind, body, and spirit she had a musical laugh and a wonderful, self-depreciating sense of humour, and a gentle touch that made her unique to all who knew her. She adored her two grand_sons and was well enough to enjoy them both as young children. A sincere thank-you to the thirdfloor staff of Arborstone Enhanced Care for their kindness and dedication to Muriel and her family these past two years. Donations in Muriel's memory may be made to the Parkinson's Society of Canada. E-mail condolences to: susang@ca.ns.sympatico.ca.
