BOWES, Kathleen " Kay" (REED)
Wife, mother, grandmother, seamstress, knitter, gardener, handcrafter. Born October 22, 1914, in Barrie, Ontario Died November 27, 2007, in Halifax of cancer and Alzheimer's, aged 93.
By Nancy BOWES, Page L6
Kay was a doer. Out of love and out of duty, from early in the morning until late at night, she was doing something with her hands, almost always for others.
Kay REED grew up on a small farm in Allandale, just outside Barrie. Her father died of pneumonia in 1923, leaving her mother with five youngsters to raise.
Kay finished high school in Barrie and worked in Toronto as a stenographer. Upon enlisting in the Royal Canadian Air Force, she was sent to Camp Borden, where she met Jack BOWES. They married in 1943.
After moving from Toronto to Cornwall, Ontario, in the early 1950s and then to Oshawa, Kay and Jack settled in Whitby in 1960. They lived there for 42 years, raising four children: Cameron, Ken, Liz and Nancy.
I never heard my mother say, "Let's get a cake at the bakery" or "Why not buy a new dress?" Kay never took the easy way out or made do with a quick fix. She sewed clothes, Halloween costumes and exquisite outfits for my Barbie doll. She crocheted vests and plant hangers, and knitted mittens, tuques, sweaters and vests. When we no longer needed the volume of knitting she generated, she knitted for Save the Children. She cooked and baked, gardened, pickled and preserved. She learned to refinish furniture at night school in the 1970s.
Considering her dedication to the art of homemaking and the skill of her hands, it seemed especially harsh that she should suffer a cancerous tumour that would eventually take her right arm. She tried valiantly to use her left hand, but that was difficult. Gone was the knitting, the sewing, the tailoring and the furniture refinishing.
In her years living at my brother's home in Ottawa, after Jack died in 2002, having only one hand did not stop Kay from trying to rake leaves or shovel snow for the pleasure of working outdoors. It must have been embarrassing for my brother to have the neighbours see his 90-year-old, one-armed mother out in the cold shovelling the driveway.
Kay's Alzheimer's diagnosis brought her to Halifax in 2005 to live at Camp Hill Veterans' Memorial Building. There her trademark question was, "Is there anything I can do to be useful?" The staff soon figured out that Kay was not to be told to relax. She dusted the handrails and folded mountains of clean washcloths.
Several staff members called Kay a "real lady." I think she would have been mystified by that label. She never thought of herself as anyone special. But she was a lady, always considerate, always caring for the needs and dignity of others.
Nancy BOWES is Kay's daughter.

Special Olympian embodied community spirit
By Tara BOWIE, Sun Media, Sun., February 10, 2008
Norwich -- Michael SKOLLY brought love and laughter wherever he travelled.
The Special Olympian died of heart complications January 22 at the home of his parents, Don and Heather, in Woodstock. He was When SKOLLY lived in Norwich, it was a regular occurrence to see him walking down Main Street poking his head into businesses just to say hello.
"They always say that it takes a village to raise a child and Norwich definitely helped to raise Michael," Heather SKOLLY said. "We appreciate everyone's help, support and acceptance of Michael."
The SKOLLYs lived in Norwich 20 years before moving to Woodstock to allow Michael easier access to needed programs.
A few years ago, bowling sparked his interest when longtime friend Karmelle TAILOR/TAYLOR started a Special Olympic team in Ingersoll.
"Michael didn't care whether he won or lost -- it was all just about having fun," TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "He already had his arms in the air, all excited, before the ball even made it to the end of the alley."
TAILOR/TAYLOR met SKOLLY while working with his mother, and later was his assistant teacher at Glendale high school in Tillsonburg.
She recalls her friend as a "young man as full of life as he could possibly could be. He just loved everybody and everything."
SKOLLY's sense of humour brought a smile to many, TAILOR/TAYLOR said. "He used to call me and ask if he could kidnap me, I would tell him I wasn't a kid. He would reply without missing a beat, 'Okay, how about I old-ladynap you?' "
SKOLLY won a Special Olympics Ontario title in the sport he loved and went on to the 2006 Canadian Special Olympics in Brandon, Manitoba
"He was so excited when he won, I'm surprised everyone didn't hear him," TAILOR/TAYLOR said.
SKOLLY flew with the rest of the team to Brandon and met his parents on the ground.
"I don't think his smile left his face during the whole trip," Heather said.
In Norwich, SKOLLY spent countless hours at the Village Restaurant and Jean's Coffee Bar, lunching with Friends. He worked a few seasons at the Fountainview Golf Course.
"He was always doing something with someone somewhere," Heather SKOLLY said. "We appreciate everyone who touched his life so much."

Acutely aware of the importance of art in education she helped establish an Artist in Residence program at Sea Pines Academy.

I have had a fabulous life, which, of course, has included some serious heart-break. I am deeply grateful to the family I had growing up and my wonderful family and Friends now. I plan to continue living as I have, working with Joe and keeping the household running with wonderful help, and sharing time with those I care so much about." She did just that.
Survived by her husband of 57 years, Joseph BOWLER Jr., two daughters Jolyn Louise BOWLER and Bevan Brynne BOWLER, one grand_son Coby James WAKEFIELD and preceded in death by her grand_son Joseph Bowler WAKEFIELD.
In recognition of Marilyn, donations may be made to the Tidewater Hospice Foundation, Bluffton, South Carolina.

MADSEN, Belle Noreen
(July 4th, 1914-March 8th, 2008)
It is with great sadness that Belle MADSEN in her 94th year passed away suddenly at Southlake Regional Health facility in Newmarket, Ontario, on Saturday morning, March 8th. Belle MADSEN departed from this life surrounded by her loving and devoted family, daughters Marcia (Jim PAERG,) Stephanie (John BEAUPRE) and sons Malcom and Rocky (Bridgitte LINNANE.) Grandmother of Steven BOWLES, Jamie BEAUPRE, Luke BEAUPRE, Brooke MULLINS and Adam MADSEN. Belle is also a great-grandmother to Robert BOWLES and Lone MULLINS. Belle was a beautiful, elegant, strong and vibrant self-reliant woman. Among other duties of charity work was also the past President of the Mining Woman's Association. Wife of the late Marius K. MADSEN president and owner of Madsen Red Lake Gold Mines, Superior Sand and Gravel, Honey Pot Ski Resort and the Casa Marie Hotel in Jamaica. Belle MADSEN was a consistent source of energy and whether she was involved in running one of the many companies owned by our late father or hosting a birthday party she was always on the go. Toward the end of her life, Belle became passionate about playing card games. It was truly remarkable how sharp her mind was right until the end. Belle also leaves behind two very dear sisters: Jane SWAIN and Jo PORTER who will miss her persistent mothering as she was the older sister and always let them know that. As we say farewell to this generous, loving and energetic woman we are reminded of just how many people's lives she has touched. She was a matriarch and definitely stood out in a crowd and as everyone she knew would tell you, she never had a problem speaking her mind, you could never go wrong having her in your corner. Although it has been so hard and sad to have had to see her leave this life, she is at peace at last. Reconnecting with our father and brother, Dana who died much too young. We miss you so much mom and know we speak for so many others that have been touched by your entrance into their lives. One day we will all see you again and until then keep playing cards& you owe us a game! Friends may call at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 6191 Yonge St. (2 lights south of Steeles). A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 1 p.m. in our chapel. Cremation to follow.

It is with great sadness that the McInnes family announces the passing of Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS on Tuesday, March 18, 2008. Born in Halifax, he was the eldest son of the late Donald MCINNES/MCINNIS and Betty (ROWAN- LEGG.)

After graduating from Ashbury College in Ottawa, Hector received his Bachelor of Law degree from Dalhousie University and his Master of Laws from Harvard Law School, both with high honours. He was called to the Nova Scotia Bar in September 1957 and began the practice of law with McInnes Cooper as the firm's third generation McInnes. Hector proudly built upon the legacy of his father, Donald MCINNES/MCINNIS, and his grandfather, Hector MCINNES/MCINNIS, for forty years, devoting his whole career to the firm and its clients. Hector was a gifted corporate and commercial lawyer, and his advice was much sought after by companies large and small, local and international in scope. His contribution was significant with his effort spent developing the economic cornerstones of the Province of Nova Scotia. He was appointed Counsel to the firm in 1994. Hector was always an active member of the legal community, as a member of the Canadian Bar Association and the Nova Scotia Barristers' Society.
