A Grandmother's Love
There are those that remember
Your kindness and unconditional love
Your drive and ambition
To succeed on your own
Despite the racism and poverty
There are those that remember
Your voice and your smile
That reassured there was always tomorrow
There are those that remember your faith
Your believe and willingness to defend
There are those that remember what
You said, "Despite all your misgivings...
Remember to forgive yourself.
Save some room in your heart for you
And never forget to appreciate,
Your life and the life you give."
I know you did not walk away
Your beside us, everyday
Unseen, unheard, but always near
Still loved and missed Nokomis.-Gina GASONGI SIMON- MISHIBINIJIMA

RENNIE, Eleanora " Norah" Stuart (née SIMPSON)
Matriarch, gentle role model, quiet saint. Born around June 3, 1917, in Edinburgh. Died August 14, 2007, in Toronto of cancer, aged 90.
By Adam RENNIE, Page L6
In Edinburgh during the First World War, Marion Scott CUNNINGHAM gave birth to her 11th child. Unlike three brothers before her, the child survived - ach, she must be a strong one.
She was born Eleanora Stuart SIMPSON. By age 6, she and her family moved to Bolton, Ontario
Norah, as she was known, grew up and lived most of her life in Toronto's west end. Her father was a tailor and a strong role model. His views on parenting were clear: "Never hit your kids on the head," he told her, and she never did.
She remembered all the rites of passage: her first kiss ("which was after my first steak on a bun, and even better than the steak") and her first cigarette ("I discovered it was possible to be sneaky, daring, nauseated and have a death wish at the same time."). She married in her early 20s and had four boys - Jim, Rob, Ross, and Dave.
In 1954, hurricane Hazel swept through Toronto. The market gardens where Norah's husband, Andy, worked were flooded, so he was out of a job. She said he was never the same afterward. He and Norah eventually separated because of his increasingly abusive behaviour.
Norah's unplanned independence didn't daunt her; she maintained her calm demeanour. For a long time, she worked as a waitress at Simpsons. When she had too many tables to look after, Norah had a foolproof tactic. As soon as her customers started to look impatient, she would stop by and ask if they had been served yet. "You haven't?" she would say in shock. "Well, your waitress must not be paying attention. I'll just take care of you." They always tipped her a little extra for being so considerate.
Cunning aside, Norah's selflessness knew no bounds. For more than a decade she worked as a nurse's aide at a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients. Her dedication to the community seemed to grow with age - when she wasn't helping at a charity thrift shop, she was volunteering with her church group. When she wasn't knitting socks or a blanket for a new grandchild (hers or a stranger's), she was helping other people in her building with their grocery shopping.
Lying in her hospital bed with terminal cancer, Norah remained her indomitable self. When the doctor delivered the news that she didn't have much longer to live, she took his hand and said, "This must be very hard for you."
Norah compared her life with those of great women and thought it paled in comparison. She saw herself as a tailor's daughter who never had a proper education or career - not as the daring and independent role model that she was.
Adam RENNIE is Norah's grand_son.

BRANDT, Robert " Bob" Wardell
Dearest Bob, We have been so lucky to know you - a great gentleman who cared for others in so many ways. You were a straight for ward genuine good guy, having a positive impact on many lives with an unassuming graciousness, an indomitable spirit but with a bit of mischief now and again. Great respect was earned by you with your intelligence, integrity, common sense and fairness to all. With your quick wit and famous Bob Brandt humour (just ask the staff) you could brighten up a discussion. You loved problem solving from puzzles to broken equipment and management issues. The challenges captivated you. Classmates from Ontario Veterinarian College '70, Guelph named you their Class President and we have been fortunate to rendezvous every 5th year to renew those Friendships with gusto. You enjoyed opening new clinics in St. Vital and The Pas, working on Veterinary Boards and church organizations, the camaraderie with the curling team, the eventful and sometimes fateful fishing trips, bonding while hunting at the farm when you had your licence, the sometimes hospital bound but fun ski trips plus exploring and observing nature while hiking and biking far and near and special summers with family and Friends at the lake. Travel was a big part of our life, especially in your semi-retirement as we set out to explore and to meet new and old Friends. Your family was very special to you. You were born to Doctor Marvin and Martha BRANDT (both deceased) in The Pas then moved to Dauphin, Manitoba; studied at the University of Manitoba then Ontario Veterinary College before settling in Winnipeg to work at St. Vital Clinic and then Birchwood Animal Hospital. You had great visions and Birchwood grows again. We will sure miss you with all of that warmth and charm.
