McLAUGHLIN, Kathleen Agnes Mudge "Kay"
Died February 24, 2008. She was 92. After a long life, well-lived, our Mother was and always will be loved for her joy, her inspiration, her faith, her relentless optimism and her unconditional love. Her darling Maurice, our Father, died in 1985. Since that time, she depended on and cherished her five daughters, one son and their families: Anne Kathleen McLAUGHLIN (GSIC,) Mary McLAUGHLIN, Margaret McLAUGHLIN, Patricia McLAUGHLIN and her children Matthew and Kate VAUTHIER, Kathy FRAUMENI and her husband John and their children, Colleen and her husband Karl, Mary Kate, Christopher and John Paul, and Ted McLAUGHLIN and his wife Wendy and their children, Tara, Jim and Sean. She will be loved and missed by her New Brunswick family including her brother Vincent and her sister Madelon. Our Aunt Helen BROWN, Mom's dearest eldest sister died in 2004. Their children and grandchildren will miss and mourn their Aunt Kay. Mom attended Normal School in New Brunswick. Soon after, she married Maurice, in 1940. His work took him from New Brunswick to several cities in Ontario, finally to London in 1967 where Mom returned to teaching, having raised her six children. Mom taught in a number of elementary Catholic schools in London. She treasured her students, many of whom continued to visit her after she retired. Her love of children and their education led her to become a Trustee of the London Catholic School Board where she served three terms. Throughout her life she demonstrated leadership whenever and wherever she became involved. At various times and places she served as President of the Catholic Women's League, the Rotary Anns and the Parent-Teacher Association. In her latter years she was the Southwestern Ontario scribe for the International Harvester Retirees Newsletter, a labour of love she continued until age 90. She will be remembered by her Friends as a woman full of laughter who was unstoppable at a Bridge game, never without an opinion, always armed with a good story, and famous for her hats. Friends will be welcomed by the family at Donohue Funeral Home, 362 Waterloo Street, at King Street, London, on Tuesday February 26 from 2-4 and 7-9. Father Michael BECHARD will celebrate a funeral Mass of thanksgiving for our Mother's life at The Chapel, Windermere on the Mount, Richmond Street North at Windermere, on Wednesday, February 27, at 1 p.m., followed by interment at Saint Peter's Cemetery. Donations to the St. Vincent de Paul Society where our father volunteered for many years, would be appreciated.

BECHBERGER, Paul Francis
Remembering with deepest love and affection our son and brother Paul Francis, who died 17 years ago, July 20th 1991, age 17. The Bridge By Leopold Staff I didn't believe, standing on the bank, of a river which was wide and swift, that I would cross that bridge. Plaited from thin fragile reeds fastened with baste, I walked delicately as a butterfly and heavily as an elephant, I walked surely as a dancer and waivered like a blind man. I didn't believe I would cross that bridge, and now that I am standing on the other side, I don't believe I crossed it. Miss you forever, love you for always. Mom, Dad, Joe and Amanda, Mary and Laura.

Marguerite graduated from Saint Michael's nursing program and was on the staff there for over thirty years, specializing in orthopaedics.

A former President of the Sinawik Club of Toronto (Kiwanis), Marguerite was also a talented artist, and an avid bowler and curler at the Granite Club for many years, and she had a smile that could light up a room. But her primary focus was her children. She was our mother first, last and always.

BURGESS, Reverend Harold N., B.A., B.Div. (1915-2008)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on July 20, in hospital, of a very special man who met all of life's challenges in a positive way. He was a caring husband, father and grandfather who gave generously of his time and energy. In his ministry, he contributed greatly to society as he counselled, encouraged and comforted his parishioners. Harold played a pivotal role in the establishment of blood donor clinics in Ontario in the early '50s. He quickly became a regular blood donor himself and encouraged others to donate too. He was a pioneer in religious radio and television. In later years, he served on the religious advisory board at CTV. He will join his beloved wife of 61 years, V. Gwendolyn (2003, née BECKEL) and leaves behind his loving daughters, Joan VAN HOUTEN and Elizabeth SCHUERMANN and her husband John. Harold was a proud and cherished Grandpa to Kirsten VAN HOUTEN and Kristofor SCHUERMANN and his wife Elaine. He leaves his brothers Gordon (Laurel) and Doug. He is predeceased by his sister Kathryn. Harold was born in Giles, Ontario. He served the United Church for 44 years, with charges in Cressy, Oak Lake (Man.), Thomasburg, Athens (Ont.), Cornwall, Toronto and Etobicoke. Harold had a great wit and sense of humour. He spent many happy hours on curling rinks and golf courses. He thoroughly enjoyed performing marriage ceremonies and did so until the age of 92, first in his churches and then in the chapel at Mississauga City Hall. Harold was an avid reader, preferring a good mystery above all else. He will be greatly missed. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter 'Peel' Chapel 2, 180 Hurontario Street, Mississauga (Hwy 10 North of Queen Elizabeth Way) from 12 noon until the time of the service at 1 o'clock on Friday July 25, 2008.
