For part of us went with you
The day God called you home
You left us all beautiful memories
Your love is still our guide

You are always by our side.

WITHERS, Eileen Anne (née TRAYNOR)
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Eileen WITHERS, after a short and courageous battle with lung cancer. On Friday, June 13th, she died peacefully with her husband and two children by her side in hospital in Halifax, age 61. A woman whose journey through life blended several families in many locations, including homes in Scotland, England, Gatineau in Quebec, Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto and finally retirement in Windsor, Nova Scotia. Daughter of proud parents Harry TRAYNOR and Katherine (née GILL) of Halifax. Beloved wife and best friend of Thomas (Ted) WITHERS. Cherished mother of Sarah (Keith BENNETT, Toronto) and Adam MAHONEY (Kendra HURSHMAN, Windsor.) Dear stepmother of Rob MAHONEY (Tracey SLITER, Ottawa), Paul WITHERS (Judy MYRDEN, Halifax) and Carolyn (Andy HEARD, Salt Spring Island, British Columbia). Precious sister of Ian (Ottawa) and Gordon (Halifax), she was predeceased by her sister Christine (Bryan UNSWORTH, York). Eileen will be sadly missed by her extended family and Friends in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and throughout Canada. Born in Greenock, Scotland, her family moved to England before she started school. An avid sportswoman and student, tennis and grass-hockey were balanced by studying mathematics and chemistry, eventually completing an honours degree in Economics at the University of London. In 1968, shortly after arriving in Canada, she realized that her French skills, learned in England, were not sufficient so she enrolled in a French ski school. That way, she could learn to ski and speak French at the same time. Her strong work ethic and commitment to efficiency helped propel her into senior policy roles in several federal government departments, and trade negotiator for International Trade Commission. Eileen was truly a remarkable and multifaceted woman whose interests included her pets, wine making and antiques. Always fond of puzzles and games, the complexity of duplicate bridge enchanted her. She was a Life Master, certified as both a director and teacher. She also judged competitive debating teams. A collector by nature she attended estate auctions most weekends. Travel often centred around a theme, first bridge tournaments, then 'collecting' state capital domes in the United States, and finally, viewing paintings by Vermeer in museums around the world. Her love of art was shared with Ted. In recent years, her generosity led her to volunteer with seniors at the Windsor Elms, especially in the Palliative Care Unit. An active member of her church, she was a Eucharistic Minister. Funeral mass and celebration of life were held in Windsor, Nova Scotia In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or your local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Animal Shelter. Private messages of condolence can be made in the 'Guest Book' at: www.familycare.ca She met each challenge in her path with grace and wisdom and it was the gift of herself that she gave to others.

Life a source of wonder
By Ian GILLESPIE, Free Press Columnist, Fri., June 13, 2008
REANEY's gift to arts will inspire generations
James REANEY once told an interviewer: "I still haven't grown up."
And maybe that was one of the great writer's gifts: An ability to look at life with the open-eyed wonderment of a child.
When I visited his London home in 1994 to talk about his adaptation of Alice Through the Looking Glass for the Stratford Festival, REANEY's conversation veered from the odd to the articulate, often in the same sentence.
At one point REANEY, who died Wednesday evening at age 81, complained that many of his university students had trouble with Lewis Carroll's text.
"They just don't understand why it's such fun to go to a place where everything is backwards," he said gleefully.
REANEY had no trouble navigating a world like that -- where time runs backwards, language loops back and forth and notions of logic need not always apply.
Despite its lyrical whimsy, REANEY's work delved deeply into notions of darkness and evil.
"Many of his ideas came from a sense of kids' play, but it was also informed by a really sharp, politically astute mind," says London-bred playwright/novelist Allan Stratton, who first worked with REANEY in the 1960s. "He was tough as nails, while at the same time being absolutely open and generous."
Poet Stan DRAGLAND, who edited a 1983 book of essays titled Approaches to James REANEY, says "there just seemed to be no lid on his imagination."
DRAGLAND recalls one incident during the early 1970s when both men were teaching at University of Western Ontario, and DRAGLAND told REANEY he'd just delivered a lesson on Jane Austen's novel, Emma.
"And (REANEY) said, 'I love the turkeys at the end of that book,' says DRAGLAND, who now lives in Saint_John's, Newfoundland. "And I thought, what turkeys? I didn't notice the turkeys."
DRAGLAND admits he never found the turkeys. But he figures they're in there, somewhere.
"But the point of the story is he would come from left field with something, and that often made you go back and think," says DRAGLAND. "He was a complete original."
In a 15-year period during the 1960s and 1970s, Keith Turnbull directed almost all of REANEY's major plays -- including the national touring production of The Donnelly Trilogy -- and says REANEY possessed "an absolutely unique and extraordinary imagination."
"He pulled his ideas from a massive and unconventional range, like Yeats and Blake and Peking opera," says Turnbull, who lives in Montreal. "He believed your limits were not geographical, they were imaginative. He said you could sit by a duck pond and have access to the whole universe."
Toronto-based director Paul THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON, who guided Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille in the 1970s, says REANEY was 15 years ahead of his time.
"The rest of us were just thinking about being Canadian playwrights, dramaturges, directors and whatever, and he was doing it," says THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. "He was a cultural dynamo."
A dynamo tempered by a sense of playful innocence, perhaps. And who left a massive legacy.
"Jamie towers over Canadian literature, and in particular, drama," says Stratton. "He's certainly the finest playwright the country has ever produced. And the Donnelly Trilogy is certainly the finest work in our dramatic canon.
"His loss can't be measured."
He was tough as nails, while at the same time being absolutely open and generous.

DELANEY, Joseph C.
We wish to express our many thanks to so many people who helped us at the time of Dad's passing June 9, 2008. We were very touched by the outpouring of generosity from our neighbours, relatives and Friends through the preparation of food, sympathy cards, mass card offerings, charitable and floral tributes. Dad was blessed to be surrounded by many caring people during his time at home over the last few years. His 'support staff' included kindness and care from Janet BILKE, Margie CAMPBELL, and Rosemary BALFOUR. In particular, Nancy O'REILLY is fondly remembered for her special attention in helping to organize his appointments, and ensuring he was able to attend mass and enjoy special music events such as 'Tuesday Toonies'. She became his 5th daughter. Upon relocating to the Ritz Villa in Mitchell, he enjoyed continued care and attention from the staff. He loved when the staff acknowledged him with "Hi Joe" - so happy that everyone knew his name! A special visitor he looked forward to her visiting and saying the rosary was Pauline (Geottler) HARTFIEL who shared her time with him reminiscing about many of the Dublin families from years ago. During the few days that Dad was at Stratford General Hospital, he received calming and gentle care from the nursing staff; we know that his most memorable visit was from Fr. Paul NICHOLSON who bestowed upon him the Sacrament of the Sick. We were overwhelmed with the support of Friends and family who attended the funeral visitation on Thursday. Special thanks to the ladies of the Seaforth Legion for their preparing a hot meal for our family between the two visiting times. Dad's funeral was shared with Friends and family and was beautifully concelebrated by Fr. Chris GILLESPIE and Fr. MOONEY. Dad always enjoyed the sounds of the pipe organ at St. Patrick's Church and we appreciated the gift of music from Brian ECKERT, the organist, and the choir members of St. Patrick's and St. Vincent De Paul. The Catholic Women's League provided a tasty lunch following the funeral mass. Our thanks to Ruth and Ross from Whitney-Ribey Funeral Home for the kindness they shared with our family throughout the funeral preparations. Although Dad lived a long and healthy life, it is still difficult to 'say goodbye'. We are comforted by our trust in a life afterward, that Dad is now reunited with Mom (Mamie) after 6½ years. His life is now complete. Yvonne and Steve SEILER, Mitchell; Pat and Charlene DELANEY, Dublin; Maureen and Paul VAN DE WALLE, Saint Marys; Jim DELANEY, London; Jayne and Brad WALSH, Egmondville and Lucille and Neil PANZIERA, Lambeth.
