QUINN, Rev. Louis Joseph, S.F.M. (1928-2007)
Fr. Lou QUINN, a priest of the Scarboro Foreign Mission Society died peacefully, October 11, 2007 while hospitalized in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, following heart surgery and post operative treatment. He was 79 years of age. Ordained for Scarboro by Cardinal McGuigan, in December 1952, he was assigned in 1953 to the Society's mission in the Dominican Republic. Since 1965, 'Padre Luis' served the people of the parish of San Jose de Ocoa, a mountainous region near the centre of the country as their beloved pastor. Totally committed to helping the poor, he wove pastoral, sacramental ministry together with economic and social development aimed directly at improving their lives. For him this was truly living the Gospel.
Born Louis Joseph QUINN, in England in 1928, he is predeceased by his mother, Mary TAMAN, stepfather Glen TAMAN, and aunt, Sally FULTON. He came to Canada in 1934, and grew up in Toronto graduating from Saint Michael's Choir School. While a student at Saint Michael's College, he felt the call to priesthood and entered Scarboro Missions' St. Francis Xavier Seminary. A few years after being assigned to the Dominican Republic he returned to Canada and took up studies at the Coady Institute in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, known for its excellent training in the development of cooperatives and credit unions.
Fr. QUINN inspired many high school and university students especially Canadian Catholics to come as volunteers to work with the people. Supported by a Canadian community of sisters and other individuals and specialized groups, such committed efforts helped radically transform the lives and wellbeing of thousands of families and their communities throughout the area of Ocoa. He received the highest of honors from the Dominican Republic, Canada, and the Vatican for his dedicated ministry and priestly example.
On Friday, October 19, the funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10: 00 a.m. in the parish of Ocoa by Bishop Freddy Breton of Bani. The body of 'Padre Luis' will then be interred inside the parish church of Ocoa, in a simple wooden coffin the kind used by ordinary 'campesinos' for the burial of their loved ones. On the same day, Friday October 19, at 10: 00 a.m. a memorial Mass will be celebrated for him at Scarboro Missions, 2685 Kingston Rd, in the main chapel. Friends of Fr. QUINN are most welcome to join us for this occasion.

STEVENSON, Mary R. (née FLOYD)
Suddenly after a brief illness on Monday, September 17, 2007 at Saint Michael's Hospital in her 90th year, after a Muskoka summer surrounded by all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and dogs). Mary, the beautiful and dearly loved wife of Harry (d. 1999) for 61 years, adored mother of Cynthia CARSLEY (Scott MARTIN), Alice COOPER (Douglas), Douglas STEVENSON (Sonia) and Leigh Anne STEVENSON. Grandmother of Louis CARSLEY (Susanne,) Andrew CARSLEY, Douglas CARSLEY (Penny), Steve WALKER (Tracy), Todd WALKER (Tatjana), Joshua WALKER (Devorah), George COOPER, Rob STEVENSON (Cynthia,) Monique STEVENSON, and John Stevenson TAMES. Great-grandmother of Timothy, Reed, Eden, Nicola, Oscar, Carson and Boaz. Beloved sister of Frank FLOYD and Ruth SMITH. Predeceased by her brother Richard FLOYD.
Mary will be long honoured, remembered and dearly missed by her family and Friends everywhere. Mary and Harry's life together, living in Toronto, Muskoka, Coral Gables, Naples, Barbados, New York, Athens, London and Ottawa gave them the opportunity to make extraordinary Friends -- whom they treasured.
Mary had deep commitments to Christ Church Deer Park, The Cradleship Creche, Belmont House, and the Church of the Kettles. She was the conservator and doyenne of the Stevenson family cottage. At her happiest, she was sitting on her deck (with Harry) in Muskoka, notebook in hand, surrounded by the activities and perambulations of countless boats, dogs, and her beloved family. Writing was always close to her heart, and in her last eight years she never passed a day without setting pen to paper. Her book "The Church of the Kettles, Muskoka" published in her 86th year was the highlight of her writing career. Still to be published is her book on the history of Belmont House.
On her last night with us she recited a poem she wrote:
Muskoka -- By the way:
If ever in the night you hear,
The dove-soft whistle
of a northbound train,
Remember all the summer years
We loved, we loved and laughed
and know that now
Though wrapped in shrouds
of dream filled sleep
we hear it still.
A service will be held at Christ Church Deer Park, 1570 Yonge St. (at Heath St.) on Friday, September 21 at 11 a.m. Remembrances can be sent on behalf of Mary to Belmont House and Christ Church Deer Park.
