From far, from eve and morning
And yon twelve-winded sky,
The stuff of life to knit me
Blew hither: here am I.
Now -- for a breath I tarry
Nor yet disperse apart --
Take my hand quick and tell me,
What have you in your heart.
Speak now, and I will answer
How shall I help you, say
Ere to the wind's twelve quarters
I take my endless way.
A.E. Housman

LINKLATER, Harold Fraser
Harold Fraser LINKLATER was born on October 1, 1917 in Teeswater, Ontario to Harvey and Gladys (née Mason FRASER) LINKLATER. He was the oldest of three brothers. Until his death all four of them were still living - I'm sure that is a record for four brothers who had survived World War 2. Harold died at 90 and all his brothers are in their 80s. His great-grandparents arrived in Canada from the Orkneys in Scotland in 1852 and some of his great-uncles had come to Canada with the Hudson's Bay Company. The family moved to Kincardine in August 1929 when his father Harvey bought the furniture store and funeral home from W.H.A. MORRISON. He worked helping his father from age 12, but really started that career in 1935 when he finished Grade 12. In 1937-38 he took courses at the Banting Institute and General Hospital in Toronto. At 19 he got his license as an undertaker but couldn't use it until he was 21. He married Nora Elizabeth DIMOND on November 20, 1940. In May 1940 he had joined the Canadian army. He went into Officer training in Brockville and between 1940 to 1943 he was stationed in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia. In World War 2 he went overseas in June 1944 before the invasion of France and stayed there until the fall of 1946. He was in the 19th Self-Propelled Regiment. He was a Captain by the time the war ended. His daughter Elizabeth Ann was born in 1949 and son John Douglas in 1951. He was a Rover Scout and became a cub and scout leader. He was on the Kincardine Public School Board for 10 years, belonged to the Rotary Club, the Kinsmen, the Masonic Lodge and was president of the Chamber of Commerce for two years and received an award. In 1970 he was chairman of the Old Boy's and Girls Reunion Committee and won the award of Citizen of the Year. He cherished the silver tray that he was given to him with that inscription. The award was reported in the London Free Press. Ballots were received from as far away as Michigan and from across the province. It was the largest number of ballots at that time and 70 percent voted for him. His pride and joy was the cottage he built on Crab Cove near Red Bay. He bought the lakefront property in 1952 for $350 and in 1953 he and his neighbour Ed HAGEDORN put up the frame. He worked both at the Linklater Funeral Home and the Linklater Furniture Store. From 1966 to 1974 he owned and operated the funeral business by himself. In 1974 at age 57 he sold the Funeral business although he helped the new owner in the summers for 4-5 years afterwards. In 1974 he and Nora bought a place in Lakeland, Florida and started going there in the winters in 1975. Nora died on his birthday, October 1, 1988 after a 48-year marriage. He married Helen Emma HAYES (née COULSON) of Saint Thomas and Lakeland, Florida on July 22 1989. He and Helen lived at the cottage until September 2000 and in Owen Sound since then. They wintered in Lakeland until 1995 when Harold got cancer of the jaw. He survived that as he did a heart attack, strokes, blindness, and several operations. He was tenacious and had a tremendous will to live through all of these ailments until April 2008 when he accepted he was failing. Perhaps being a funeral director had given him this will to live because he had to live with death around him for so many years. Harold is survived by his beloved wife Helen, his daughter Elizabeth (Liza) and her husband James TROTTIER of Manila, Philippines, his son Douglas (Doug) of Red Bay, his grandchildren Jesse and Dane of Barrie, his brothers Ken (and Reita) of Kincardine, Bryce (and Alma) of Jarvis and Gordon (and Joan) of Toronto, and his former daughter-in-law, Dianne LINKLATER of Kincardine; his step-family Helen (and Bert) WRAY of Durham and their children Marla (and Lee) ZWOLMAN of Milton, Kevin and David WRAY; and to Marg NICHOL (and Gerald) of Brampton, Donald FINDLAY (and Teresa) of Campbell River, British Columbia and William FINDLAY (and Gazelle) of Winnipeg; as well as everyone's children and many grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren. Heartfelt thanks and affection are extended to dearest Helen, Helen and Bert WRAY of Durham, Fern and Ken FYNN, Linda CRANDALL and Ab LIPSETT and Mary VAN TRIGT, all of Owen Sound for their loving care and assistance over the last years. A memorial service took place on Monday May 5 at the Kincardine cemetery and was followed by a reception at Knox Presbyterian Church. Arrangements were made by Harold's friend Tom WHITCROFT of the Thomas C. Whitcroft Funeral Home and Chapel in Sauble Beach. Donations can be made to the charity of your choice.

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.

In loving memory of a beloved mother and friend, Dora Ellen (LINTON) REID, who passed away July 22, 2002 in her 93rd year.
To us you were special,
what more is there to say,
Except to wish with all our hearts,

You couldn't see our tears,
But you left us beautiful memories,
We will treasure through the years.

MURPHY and Ethel (SULLIVAN,) Peetie was the middle child of five, Catherine and Barbara, who predeceased her, a younger sister, Carol, and brother, Edward. She shared many happy stories of her family growing up in their beautiful house on Rhuland Street, as well as the good times enjoyed summering in Jollimore at "Unadilla" on the shores of The North West Arm. Peetie attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart, where she made many lifelong Friends.

She was a long-time member of the Junior League, and served on the Board of the Victorian Order of Nurses. Peetie was a generous and thoughtful friend to many. Whether visiting people in their times of need, or contributing extensively to her bridge and book clubs, she was always thinking of others. Throughout her life, the Catholic faith was always important to her, and she followed "The Golden Rule" as a matter of course. After Bill retired, they spent considerable time in Florida and Chester, enjoying Friends and family. She became a remarkable strength for Bill during the latter years of his life, caring for him until he died in 2006.
