STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, Catherine Gertrude
Catherine Gertrude STEWARD/STEWART/STUART passed away on January 31, 2008 at the Royal Terrace Nursing Home.
Catherine was the third child, born to Archibald and Emma (QUIGG) STEWARD/STEWART/STUART on March 24, 1917. She and her older siblings, Dora Mary HOGARTH and John Patrick STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, who predeceased her in 1988 and 1987 respectively, were born on the family farm south of Ceylon.
Catherine attended Ceylon Public School and Flesherton High School. After graduation, she attended the Owen Sound General and Marine Hospital School of Nursing. In 1941 she graduated as a Registered Nurse. Catherine was always very proud of her chosen career and specialized in obstetrics.
After nursing in Owen Sound for many years, she ventured off to Bermuda for 14 months, returning back to Canada to live in Montreal and then Sudbury. She was often asked to be the nurse attendant on private flights going to the northern part of the provinces to accompany mothers-to-be back to a larger hospital. She also nursed in London, Kitchener and Guelph.
After her retirement from nursing, she chose to live in Mount Forest to be closer to her sister Dora. They travelled a great deal and were always best Friends.
In Mount Forest she was a very active member of Big Sisters, the Presbyterian Church, The Fireside Group and the Horticulture Society. She had a great passion for flowers and her home and surroundings reflected her interest and knowledge of them. She was always very busy and made many Friends.
Catherine moved to the Royal Terrace Retirement Home in Palmerston in 2002 after her health started to fail and later moved over into the nursing home.
In 2007 she celebrated her 90th birthday with family and Friends and a big cake.
Catherine was the last surviving grandchild of Patrick and Maryann QUIGG, who emigrated to Canada from Ireland in the 1850's.
She will be missed by her 11 nieces and nephews, Dora's children Mary and Larry and J.P.'s children Linda, Sandra, Murray, Cathy, Ron, Bruce, Cheryl, Judy, Gary and all their families.
The family received Friends at the Fawcett Funeral Home in Flesherton on Sunday, February 3, 2008. Rev. Donna MANN conducted the service following visitation.

BOYD, Richard Norman, M.D., F.R.C.S.
(June 5, 1944-March 29, 2008)
It is with overwhelming grief that the family of Doctor Richard BOYD announces his death at age 63 on Saturday, March 29, 2008 after a heart attack and a stroke. Rick took his last breath held lovingly by his family and close Friends Doctor Frank DEMARCO and Doctor Tom ELSDON. Rick deeply loved, and was loved by, his wife of nearly 40 years, Jane (JOHNSTON,) and cherished his sons David Richard and Andrew Macartney. Rick adored his beautiful 'daughters' Kristen (SKINNER) and Lindsay (GRAY/GREY.) He was predeceased by his loving parents Doctor Norman and Barbara BOYD, and father-in-law Robert 'Mac' JOHNSTON. He will be profoundly missed by his mother-in-law Olive JOHNSTON. Left to mourn are his sisters Judy MANNING, Mary HOPKINS (Ed DAVEY) and Heather MUNRO (Bob,) his aunt Dorothy SEARLE, brother and sister-in-laws Dick and Jane JOHNSTON, cousins, nieces and nephews, and a legion of Friends. He was predeceased by his loyal Bichon Frises, Bijoux and Beaumont. Doctor BOYD graduated from the University Of Western Ontario Medical School in 1968. He obtained his Specialist Fellowship in Urology from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1976, and has since then practiced Urological Surgery in Windsor. He previously served as Chief of Surgery, and was currently head of Urology, at the Windsor Regional Hospital. He was one of the founders of the prostate cancer Bracytherapy programme at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre. In recent years he has also served the community as a Provincial Coroner for Essex County. Rick was a member of the Alpha Kappa Kappa medical fraternity. An athlete, Rick ran 27 marathons around the world with a personal best of 2: 48 in Chicago. He curled in the Ontario Medical Association bonspiels, and was an avid golfer and scholar of golf history. He was a member of the Donald Ross Society. He was currently the very proud President of Essex Golf and Country Club. Rick was a skilled clinician and diagnostician, and a gentle man who exhibited great kindness to his patients. He had twinkling blue eyes, a mischievous smile and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. Rick's prize orchids are especially beautiful this spring. Our family thanks the medical community, both doctors and nurses, who supported Rick in area hospitals over the years, and especially Ruth Anne PIETTE and Staci LEMIEUX who loyally kept his office organized in spite of him. We thank the doctors and nurses at Windsor Regional and Hotel Dieu Grace Hospitals who so valiantly tried to save him: Doctor Rob WOODALL, Doctor Anthony GLANZ, Doctor Hash PATEL, Doctor Natalie MALUS and Doctor Balraj JHAWAR, who over five difficult days demonstrated extraordinary skill, as well as great compassion and love to our family. Thank you to Carol DERBYSHIRE and Steve BRENNAN from the Hospice of Windsor; Pat BEST, Paula DEEHAN- SCHMIDT and Chaplain Joyce JARDIN from Hotel Dieu Grace Hospital; Kim VAN ALLEN and Bishop Bob BENNETT from All Saints' Church; and our community for enveloping our family in love and prayers as we ran with Rick on his last marathon. Always one to put others first, and ever the healer, Rick has made four gifts of life. His two corneas will go to enhance sight, and, ironically the "perfect urologist kidneys" will give life and hope to two patients. In order to give back to our community which Rick so loved, we ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to organizations that were so a part of his life: Hospice of Windsor for care of men with prostate cancer; All Saints' Anglican Church; Windsor Regional Hospital for a Cystoscopy suite; Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for the Prostate Brachytherapy Program; and Essex Golf and Country Club for a croquet pitch and garden in his name. Visiting will be held at the Walter D. Kelly Funeral Home and Cremation Centre, 1969 Wyandotte St. E. On Monday and Tuesday from 1-4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at All Saints' Anglican Church, 330 City Hall Square on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 at 11: 00 a.m. Cremation to follow.

WALLIS, Suzanne (née MANNING) (1944-2008)
On February 5, 2008, Suzanne WALLIS died unexpectedly in her home in Guelph, Ontario. Born in 1944 in Ottawa to George and Eleanor MANNING, Suzanne moved with them and brother Eric to Sarnia and then to Guelph, where she spent her childhood. Suzanne later attended Alma College for young women in Saint Thomas, Ontario, winning a scholarship for writing to attend the University of Western Ontario.
Always engaging and equally engaged, as a young woman Suzanne worked as a reporter for the London Free Press and for the Winnipeg Free Press. A social activist from early on, she lobbied publicly and successfully for causes ranging from social justice to the building of public schools in North York. Her affinities for politics and writing led her to earn a diploma in governmental legal administration from Seneca College. She later became Director of Communications for the Hon. Alvin Curling during his time as Ontario's Minister of Housing, and then Skills Development.
Suzanne's middle years were spent in Stouffville, Ontario, where she was a devoted and loving mother to Courtney, Ben, and Duff. During this time she also worked as a publicist for McClelland and Stewart, as a freelance writer for Chatelaine magazine and as a speechwriter for leaders of business, academia, and government.
Suzanne is remembered by all who met her as a passionate and compassionate woman who possessed the rare ability to make others feel valued. She lived by the words of one of her favourite authors, Margaret Laurence: "Know that although in the eternal scheme of things you are small, you are also unique and irreplaceable. As are all your fellow humans everywhere in the world." She remains unique and irreplaceable to her Friends, to her brother Eric of Victoria, and to her children Courtney, Ben, and Duff, and grandchildren Samantha, Julian, Brooke, and Elliott.
A private gathering of family and Friends will be held in June.

MANSBRIDGE, Brenda Louise
Wife, mother, woman of style. Born September 28, 1923, in Liverpool, England. Died April 4 in London, Ontario, of cancer, aged 84.
By Wendy Mansbridge GUNN, Page L8
Brenda Harris JONES came of age in Lincoln, England, during the darkest days of the Second World War.
The path of her life was forever changed when she met a dashing young Royal Air Force navigator named Stanley H. MANSBRIDGE at Scampton air base near Lincoln in 1942.
As the war ended, both came away with an increased appreciation of life and a sense of adventure that led to three years in Kuala Lumpur, during the dwindling days of the British Empire. This adventure with two young children, Wendy and Peter, only seemed to increase the young couple's wanderlust, eventually leading to Ottawa and the arrival of one more child, Paul.
Mother's post-secondary education was informal yet intensive, acquired from years of travel and international living, voluminous reading, a passionate study of classical music and an eternal curiosity.
She lived within a basic set of tenets that gave her life structure and security. One of these was the belief that wherever her husband's career led them she would follow. "I have just unpacked and your father is already booking the next trip," she would say. Thirty-four addresses in England, Malaya, Switzerland and in four provinces of Canada were "home" over her 62-year marriage.
"Pride bears no pain." As a child the meaning of these words was baffling to me. It was one of those axioms Mother produced at appropriately demanding moments.
Recently, as I arrived at her home on a wintry February morning, an oft-repeated planning protocol was being followed. Her suitcase was open. A crisp white sheet had been spread across the bed. Freshly laundered items, neatly folded and arranged by both colour and time-of-day use, were on one side; stationery, stamps, books and a Day-timer on the other. She reminded me, "One should only choose two colours for a voyage, and then one accent colour for an interesting touch. That's it, you don't need anything else."
These standards, established long ago, never wavered. Mother reasoned that the one occasion you left the house poorly groomed would be the one you might always regret.
Just for a moment the years faded and I remembered Kuala Lumpur and long ago days - Father elegant in his white sharkskin dinner jacket, mother in long white gloves and a strapless gown, coming to say goodnight to Peter and me before leaving for the evening.
As she left her home that morning, no one would have known that Mother had been fragile and extremely weak for some time. In reality, we were leaving for the hospital.
Now I understood the adage. Pride demanded this. For that brief time, pride overcame all.
Wendy Mansbridge GUNN is Brenda's daughter.
