RAINBIRD- KENDRICK, Julie (August 8, 1975-August 5, 2005)
We think of you in silence
We often speak your name
But all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame.
They say memories are golden
Well, maybe that is true
But we never wanted memories dear Julie, we only wanted you.
A million times we've needed you
A million times we've cried
If love could have saved you dear
You never would have died.
If we could have one lifetime wish
One dream that could come true
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and you.
Loving you always, our Wife, Mommy, Daughter and Sister

RAINEY, C. William " Bill"
Bill passed away in the early morning of August 27th after a short but undaunted and fearless battle with colon cancer at the young age of 54, with his family by his side. He will be forever loved and remembered by his beautiful wife, Diane (JEFFERIES,) and his fantastic and adored children, Kacie and Jeff and his faithful Boxer, Kona. He is also survived by his three brothers, Doug, Dave (Deanna) and Brian RAINEY; his sister-in-law Janice QUINN and her husband Sean, and his two very special nieces, Avianna and Joelle QUINN; brother-in-law David JEFFERIES; Michelle and Emilie RAINEY; Ellen, Jeff, Laurie and Victoria POWERS. Predeceased by his mother and father, Shirley and Keith RAINEY; and his mother-in-law, Nora JEFFERIES. Bill was born in Duncan, British Columbia and moved to Calgary at a very early age. He attended Elboya Elementary and Jr. High and graduated from Henry Wise Wood High School. Bill received his B.Sc. from the University of Alberta in 1976. With a never ending quest to learn, Bill earned numerous diplomas from the University of Calgary and Queen's University School of Business, Executive Development Centre. Through the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University, he was currently preparing to write the Chartered director's exam in September. After the successful completion of this course the Chartered Director Designation (C. Dir) would have been bestowed upon him. After completing university and a 6 month adventure tour of Europe, Bill began his business career with Xerox in Calgary and then went on to work for Royal Trust in Toronto where he took on increasing responsibilities leading to his position as Managing Partner Sales Management and Training. He and his family moved back to Calgary for several years where he assumed a Directors position with AGT/Telus. Group Telecom recognized his skills and Bill and his family once again moved to Oakville to lead the National Sales and Technical Support teams as Senior Vice President. Three years ago, Bill with his incredible 'A' team was given the opportunity to create the vision, culture and environment of the start up Voice over Internet Protocol Company, Vonage Canada. Bill was honoured to have served this team as President of the company. Giving back to the community was extremely important to Bill and his passion for helping children led him to become the Chairman of Kid's Help Phone in Alberta as well as being a member of the National Board of Kid's Help Phone. Bill was also the Chairman of the Executive Advisory Council for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Bill's special interest and truth be told, his gift, was the mentoring, nurturing and coaching of his family, Friends and business colleagues. He was able to bring out the best in those people who sought out his wisdom and guidance. Watching Kacie's karate classes and Jeff's hockey games gave Bill immense pride. His voracious passion for reading allowed Bill to gain incredible insight and invaluable knowledge into history and business. Bill loved taking family vacations to warm and exotic places where he could indulge in his love of scuba diving and sailing. These vacations and adventures also allowed Bill to capture those moments through his love of photography. Golf was the game that kept Bill humble. Bill always looked forward to taking the annual holiday to the family cabin at Sylvan Lake, Alberta where he could relax with his family and Friends who always dropped by. There will be an open house to Celebrate Bill's life on Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, from 4: 00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with a short commemoration beginning at 4: 30 p.m. The celebration will be held at the Glen Abbey Golf Club at 1333 Dorval Drive, Oakville. A Celebration will also be held at the Glencoe Club in Calgary, Alberta on Friday, September 21st, 2007. A special thank you to all the caring Doctors and staff at Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, the Henderson Hospital in Hamilton, and our family physician and friend, Doctor John DENBY. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to any Children's Hospital, the Kid's Help Phone or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Born May 27, 1921 in Toronto, eldest of six children born in Canada to Dina and Petre FILEFF, former Greek and Turkish subjects, from Western Macedonian mountain village of Trsye, who immigrated after World War I and adopted the anglicized name PHILLIPS. Lived on Wilkins Avenue in Cabbagetown area of Toronto. Attended Sackville Street School and Central Tech. Attended St. Cyril and Methody Macedonian Orthodox Church. Lifetime member of Daughters of Macedonia and Trsye Benevolent Society. Raised through the depression, she worked as a housekeeper and seamstress, for room and board and going dancing with sisters “Vee” and “Annie” at the Palais Royale or Masonic Temple. During the early years of World War 2 she met, and fell in love with a gentleman of the Air Corps, then Royal Canadian Air Force Airman L.O. MALONEY, to whom she was wed in 1943, after he returned from radar duty in England. Helen joined Larry when he was stationed at Royal Canadian Air Force Station Bagotville in 1944. After Sgt. MALONEY's demobilization, they started a family, living in a flat on Balsam Avenue in the Beach area of Toronto. While in Toronto, the family were members of Saint Michael's diocese. In 1951 the family moved to Point-aux-Trembles area of Montréal and later to St. Michel (1953-1972) at the northeast end of Montréal Island. While in Montréal, the family were members of St. Brendan's diocese. In 1972, moved to Scarborough, Ontario. Following Larry's early retirement in 1978, Helen and Larry wintered in Largo, Florida for 28 years of well-earned recreation and leisure time. In 2003, Helen and Larry moved to the family estate near Meaford, Ontario. Helen was the consummate homemaker, a skilled manager, budgeter, purchaser, chef, knitter, sewer, clothier, seamstress, launderer, cleaner, practical nurse and psychologist. She made it all seem easy. To children she was a cub and scout organizer, protector, comforter, supporter and healer. To her peers she was a graceful dancer, astute bridge partner, champion bowler, occasional golfer and good fun to be with at social events. To her husband, Larry, she was a lifelong friend, companion, partner and counsellor. Larry says that Helen saved him from an unstable life pursuing impractical daydreams. Between 1945 in Toronto and 1963 in Montreal, Helen gave birth to six sons. It was the great regret of her life that she never had a daughter, and so it was that she had a special affection for her nieces, grand-daughters and great-granddaughters. Helen was, in a category she herself sometimes applied to people, a “giver”. She was a good person with commendable standards of conduct and morality. Helen was always concerned about the feelings of others, always ready to lend a helping hand, always ready with a kind word. There are very few like her. She will be missed. Service held at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 3 July 2007 at Gardiner-Wilson Funeral Home, 60 Denmark Street, Meaford, Ontario. (519) 538 2550 Visitation begins at noon. The family receives visitors at home following service. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer Society.
