Cherished Mom of Heather McLEOD and her fiancé Stephen RUTTAN, of Hamilton, and Jennifer McLEOD and her husband Michael JESKE, of Kitchener. Treasured sister of Jane and Bud FIELD of Paris, Ontario, Mary Anne and Bill LEIGH, of Kitchener, and Jim and Bonnie TINCKNELL, of Belleville, Ontario. Adored daughter-in-law of Edith McLEOD, of Waterloo and sister-in-law of Wayne and Susan STEVENS, of Waterloo. Special aunt to Chelsea LEIGH, as well as to all the members of the Stevens and Tincknell families. Special 'grammy' to Morgan daughter of Master Bdr James and Richelle AKEROYD of Chalk River, Ontario, stepdaughters Elizabeth and Christine and devoted companion Merced (Ninia) TAGALOG. Dear friend of Ivan and Sandra Anderson, Jim and Heather Murdock, Barry and Kathy Kiggins, Dianne Aves, Betty Townshend, Trudie Robbins, Brad and Ellen Luelo, Mandy and Jamie Badrian, Peter and Elizabeth Moffat, Pat and John Weber, Conestogo, Alan and Nicole Mockler, Montreal, Doctor William Akeroyd and family Vancouver Dr's John and Christine Martin, Inverness, Scotland as well as countless others. She will be deeply missed by her close Friends at Queensmount Senior Public School, Kitchener and the many new Friends she had made as she setup a second home with Jim in Saint John, New Brunswick. The family would also like to thank the Waterloo Community Care Access Centre team, Doctor Bob HUNTER, Kitchener and the doctors of the Hamilton Juravinski Cancer Centre for their caring and support of Barb through her long journey. Barb was predeceased by her first husband, Bill McLEOD, and her parents, Luke and Hope TINCKNELL, of Paris, Ontario. Barb was first and foremost a proud and loving mother. She was also a wonderful, caring and generous wife, sibling, friend, and teacher. She was born in Paris, Ontario, where she spent the entirety of her childhood. She was an energetic child, who succeeded both at academics and athletics. She attended teacher's college at McMaster University and later returned to Guelph University to complete a degree in English and theatre arts. She taught at several elementary schools, took a leave to dedicate herself to parenting, and then returned to Queensmount Senior Public School in the late 1980s. Barb established herself as a remarkable teacher who inspired both her students and her colleagues. She taught English and math and directed several musical productions, while acting as a supportive mentor and friend to her fellow staff. In recent years, Barb was an avid fan of her daughter's careers, both scholastic and athletic. She adored her 'boys', Cody and Spooky, and the new addition of Oakley. She was a knowledgeable and dedicated sports fan. She travelled frequently with Jim, to Western and Eastern Canada, Boston, and Sanibel Island, Florida. Barb loved visiting with her granddaughter, Morgan, spending time at her cabin, gardening, bird watching, renovating and decorating her home, riding her bicycle, going to movies, and visiting her favourite people. As her health declined over the past year, Barb inspired us all with her ability to embrace every day of her life, and to find joy and humour during the most difficult of times. She fought an incredibly long and hard battle, but continued to focus only on the needs and lives of others. Her life was miraculous in many ways; she will be cherished forever by those who were blessed to share her life. Interment will be at Memory Gardens followed by a private service in celebration of her life. Donations in memory of Barbara (Barb) Ellen McLEOD can be made to the Hamilton Juravinski Cancer Centre, http://www.jccfoundation.on.ca/donations/online.shtml or may be placed by calling the Henry Walser Funeral Home 519 749-8467.

Man acquitted in notorious shooting found slain
Former Toronto resident tried in Just Desserts case was deported to Jamaica in 2002
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A18
The man who was acquitted in the notorious Just Desserts shooting, but later deported, has been shot dead in Jamaica.
O'Neil GRANT was found with several gunshot wounds to his body late Monday night at a busy downtown bus terminal in west Kingston. Police say the 35-year-old was hunted down in the crowd.
"He was approached by a lone gunman on foot, who opened fire, hitting him," Leslie Green, Jamaica's assistant commissioner of police for serious and organized crime, told The Globe and Mail. "… From the investigation to date, the officers believe this may have been a reprisal, that he may have shot somebody locally some time ago."
Mr. GRANT was taken to Kingston Public Hospital shortly before midnight, where he was pronounced dead.
His death marks the final chapter of a life that, in the eyes of his family and Friends, has been hounded by tragedy and misfortune.
In April of 1994, Mr. GRANT was charged with manslaughter and robbery in the shooting death of Georgina (ViVi) LEIMONIS, who was having coffee with a friend at the Just Desserts café on Davenport Road.
After 5½ years in the Don Jail, he was acquitted of all charges by a jury in 1999.
Lawrence BROWN was found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison in Ms. LEIMONIS's death, and Gary FRANCIS received a 15-year sentence for manslaughter and robbery convictions.
But the publicity surrounding the shooting and Mr. GRANT's treatment in jail resounded for years afterward, and highlighted racial divisions in Toronto and concerns about immigration policy.
In a separate ruling handed down in November, 1998, Mr. Justice Brian TRAFFORD of Ontario Superior Court wrote that Mr. GRANT was unfairly treated during his time at the Don Jail, including the use of waist restraints connected to his handcuffs.
"The use of restraints… was the result, in part, of cultural insensitivity towards black people," he wrote.
And while Mr. GRANT had not been convicted of a crime since 1992, or been charged with any offences since his release from jail, the father of three was ultimately deported to his native Jamaica in 2002, from where he had come to Canada at the age of 11.
An immigration board said he had violated the terms of a stay of an earlier deportation order, one of which was failing to notify authorities of his change in address when he was being held at the Don Jail.
Heather McARTHUR, one of Mr. GRANT's lawyers, said she has kept in touch with Mr. GRANT's common-law wife, his mother and his siblings, all of whom still live in Canada. His two daughters, 7 and 18, and son, 14, learned of his death two days ago.
"They're devastated," Ms. McArthur said.
She said there is no way Mr. GRANT, who had been having a hard time adjusting to life in Jamaica where deportees are treated roughly, was involved in any criminal activity in the Caribbean country. She added he never should have been deported from Canada in the first place.
"He was an innocent man. He didn't do it. But still, he stayed in jail for over 5½ years… and despite that, they sent him down to a country where he knew nobody, he had no money, they just put him on a plane," she said. "And now, he's dead."

RITCHIE, John Weir
It is with sadness, yet recognition of a life well-lived, that the family announces that John Weir RITCHIE departed from us on July 6, 2007 at Rockwood Terrace in Durham.
Beloved son of Edgar and Bessie RITCHIE, John was born in 1918 at his parent's Elbow, Saskatchewan farm where he lived until the age of four. When his father died at 24, John moved with his mother to Durham, Ontario and joined his uncle Thomas WEIR's family.
Married to Sarah (Sadie) OLIVER in 1944, they lived on their Old Durham Road farm near Priceville to raise two children, John Oliver and Rosemary. In addition to farming, John worked at Hewgill's sawmill in Pricevilie and for both Farquhar and John MacKINNON over the years, and drove a high school bus route. Retirement took John and Sadie to their retirement home, "Cape Horn" on the outskirts of Markdale.
Always well-respected by his community, John was noted for his humility and kindness as he exemplified rural life, enjoying all that it offered. He was an enthusiastic member of Annesley United Church, the Markdale Curling Club and a ten-year volunteer at Rockwood Terrace. Predeceased by his wife, Sadie in March 1997, and his son, John Oliver in February 2007, John is survived by his daughter, Rosemary RITCHIE (Wayne PILKINGTON) of Vancouver and sisters-at-heart, Mary (Ken) HALL of Scarborough and Margaret (Robert) MONTGOMERY of St. Catharines.
Funeral service of remembrance and thanksgiving was held at Annesley United Church, Markdale, on July 13 with Rev. Don PLETSCH presiding. Music during the service consisted of the congregation singing the family favourite "O God of Bethel" and "Faith of Our Fathers". Also providing music were the Gospel Couriers and Ian LEITH playing his fiddle. Interment was at Evergreen Cemetery, South Line, Artemesia.
Memorial contributions towards the endowment fund for John's son can be made to: John Oliver Ritchie Scholarship Fund, c/o Douglas College Health Sciences Dept. Batchelor Science of Nursing Faculty, Box 2503, New Westminster, British Columbia V3L 5B2.

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.
