LOPER, The Reverend Brant Phister
Died suddenly in his home on Tuesday May 29th 2007, at the age of 77 years. Brant Phister LOPER was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 17th 1929. He was a graduate of Hanover College in Indiana, and completed his theological studies at McCormick Seminary College in Chicago in 1962, after which he served several pastorates in Ohio. Brant was then program director at the Yokefellow Institute in Richmond, Indiana. Brant and his family moved to Canada in 1975, where he served eleven years as the Parish Planner for the Board of Congregational Life with The Presbyterian Church of Canada. In 1989, Brant began his work with the United Church of Canada. His pastorates in Ontario over the years included Knob Hill United Church in Scarborough and Binkley United Church in Hamilton. Rev. LOPER was most proud of his work with Saint_John's United Church in Georgetown, and Glen Williams United Church, where he served as Minister to both parishes simultaneously. Brant always had a positive outlook on life, and attributed this mentality to helping him beat cancer and remain cancer free. In his retirement years, Brant was able to enjoy his many different hobbies and interests. He was an avid supporter of the arts, in particular the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra. He attended his Sherlock Holmes group "The Main Street Irregular's", the Halton-Peel Canadian Club, and was a member of the Ontario Black History society with particular interest in the studies and education of the Underground Railroad. He was a Minister Emeritus and a member of the Glen Abbey United Church congregation from which he drew much inspiration. Brant was proud to be a Canadian and was an active member and supporter of the New Democratic Party. A true "people person", Brant was always upbeat and was happiest when surrounded by people where he could engage in stimulating conversation and the sharing of ideas. Brant is survived by his sons Christopher Brant LOPER and his wife Kylie and John Calvin LOPER and his partner Katharine BARTHEL. Proud grandfather of Noah William and Deacon James LOPER. Remembered by his former wives; Chris and John's mother Arvone LOPER and Janice WAUD- LOPER. Predeceased by his parents Brant C. LOPER and Ruth LOPER nee: BARRY. A memorial service will take place on Friday June 8th at 2 p.m. at Saint John's United Church, 11 Guelph Street, Georgetown.

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.

PRIDDLE, Stanley Alexander
Stanley Alexander PRIDDLE of Markdale passed away suddenly in the Grey-Bruce Regional Health Centre in Owen Sound on Sunday evening, September 2, 2007.
He was born on July 10, 1930 in Osprey Township, the only son of Roy PRIDDLE and Jessie (BADGEROW) PRIDDLE. He and his three sisters attended S.S.#2 McIntyre in Osprey Township where his parents farmed. In 1944 Stan's father purchased a home near Dundalk where the family resided for many years.
Stan's working career started after high school when he found employment with Aitchison's Bakery in Dundalk. He worked there for 12 years and learned the baking trade. In 1957 he took over the bakery in Markdale which had been started by Allen SMITH of Dundalk. Two years later he purchased a building across the street and moved the business there.
On October 24, 1959 he married Vivian DAWSON of Dundalk and together they owned and operated Priddle's Bakery. And that bakery was a great success. People still rave about it today. Just last year someone told his daughter Brenda that she used to go to his bakery and had to hide the pastries she bought in different areas of her house so people wouldn't eat them before meal time. Many of the pleasant memories shared by those who attended visitations and the funeral revolved around the bakery.
After Stan sold the bakery in 1972, he worked as a baker for Vern's Donuts in Owen Sound His employer, Vern BARBER, remembered Stan as someone who always had a smile on his face, and his co-worker, Paul DICKSON/DIXON said that Stan taught him how to be a good baker. Stan worked for Vern for 17 years before ill health forced him to retire.
Stan's favourite pastime was to drive a car. He enjoyed travelling to many places, both locally and far away. He has been in every Canadian province and in many parts of the United States, to the Bahamas and to Jamaica. "If you're not going, you're not living!" was his motto.
In retirement years he and Vivian purchased antique cars and attended local parades and car shows. If a stranger wanted a ride in one of his cars, he gave him one. They had many adventures with these cars and met many new people along the way.
Stan had a good sense of humour. He was generous, quiet kind and considerate. He was held in good esteem by all who knew him.
Stan is survived by his daughters, Brenda CATCHER of Owen Sound and Evelyn (Reg) CREGO of Burlington and by his son David (Camilla) PRIDDLE of Manotick, near Ottawa. He also has four grandchildren, Ryan and Allison DEMERCHANT and Cole and Brock PRIDDLE. He is fondly remembered by his friend Joyce ROWE of Hanover who has arranged to have a tree planted in his honour near Griersville. He is also survived by his sisters Rosetta MUIR of Dundalk, Margaret BROWN of Shelburne and Verna MARKOVICH of Shelburne. His mother-in-law Lillian DAWSON of Shelburne and his brother-in-law Tom DAWSON of Dundalk also survive. He was predeceased by his parents Roy and Jessie PRIDDLE, and by his brothers-in-law Bill MUIR, Donald BROWN and Stephen MARKOVICH.
A funeral was held on Friday, September 7 at the Donald and May Funeral Home in Markdale. His daughter Brenda wrote the eulogy and his son David delivered the eulogy along with his own thoughts. His other daughter, Evelyn, prepared a collage of pictures of Stan at various stages in his life. Rev. Mark WAUGH officiated at the service and David FRIES played the organ. A floral arrangement was made for Stan by Bernice TUPLIN of Feversham.
Friends and relatives were present from Markdale, Dundalk, Owen Sound, Chesley, Cambridge, Burlington and Manotick.

HOWARTH, Jean Kate (née IDDON) (April 15, 1922-January 9, 2007)
Succumbing to complications from pneumonia, Jean passed away very peacefully with family and Friends by her side at North York General Hospital. She is predeceased by her parents Ruby (née WAUGH) and Arnold IDDON, by her beloved husband and best friend, Allen (1918-1982), and by her brother Douglas. She is survived by her son, Rick, and her daughter, Lynne (Janet McDOUGALL,) as well as by numerous nieces, nephews, and Friends of all ages and stages in her life. Jean had lived with cardiovascular issues since her bypass surgery in 1976. Her determination, positive attitude ('I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I'm in') and zest for life, not only kept her going, but also made her a favourite of all who met her. She loved life and the people in her life helping others was her passion. She will be sorely missed by many. The family wishes to thank the staff at Cedarhurst Residence where Jean rediscovered the social world from which she had become distanced as the alzheimer's /mixed dementia progressed. In accordance with her wishes, she has already been cremated. We will welcome family and Friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), from 7-9 p.m. on Friday, January 12th. A celebration of Jean's life will be held in the chapel at 3: 00 p.m. on Saturday, January 13th with reception to follow.

EGAN, James Callan
Jim, Dale, Hanna and Madeleine Grace are deeply saddened by the departing of Cal - son and brother. Cal passed away in his sleep the morning of July 12th. was born on a Friday the 13th, March, 1992. An empathic, loving, trustworthy and eclectic teenager, he was loved by his sisters, mum, dad and all the family. Honest to a fault, Cal always gave himself away by the tell-tale corners of his mouth whenever he tried to pull the wool over someone's eyes. From an early age, he was a quick thinker, a diligent worker and had his father's natural head for math and science. A typical evening at the Egan home involved the girls, Cal, and Jim at the kitchen couch chuckling to the Simpsons while Mom was cooking for the crew. Cal grew up playing soccer, hockey, squash, unicycling and skiing with the family. He was such a good little guy. He had a love of ketchup, a passion for 'World of Warcraft', any kind of water (swimming, surfing waves, shoveling snow and loved a great rainstorm). He was a strong student and was on the Reach team at school. Studies came easy to him, leaving time for other adventures with his Friends. He will be sadly missed by his family, his grandmothers Eileen EGAN and Dorothy WAUGH, his aunts and uncles Rita, Liam, Brenda, Mikey, Penny, Don, Linda, Rodney, Judy and Janice, and his cousins Meaghan, Kyle, Avari, David, Justin, Conor, Dylan, Tori, Spencer, Garnet and Jamie and all the relatives here and around the world. Cal finds himself now in the company of his two grandfathers - Donald WAUGH and Seamie 'poppy' EGAN. Visitations for Cal will be from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 on Tuesday July 17th at Glen Oaks Memorial Chapel and Reception Centre, 3164 Ninth Line (at Dundas) Oakville. Funeral Service will be held Wednesday the 18th at 1 p.m. at Glen Oaks. In lieu of flowers, we ask that any memorial donations be made to Epilepsy Ontario at www.epilepsyontario.org
