BEZAIRE, Betty
We would like to thank our neighbours, Friends and co-workers who supported us in the recent tragic death of my mother, Betty BEZAIRE.
Mom passed away on December 17th from injuries sustained in a car accident on December 2nd in Windsor. The cards, flowers, Mass offerings, food, phone calls and charitable donations were very much appreciated. Special thanks to those who made the 10-hour round trip to Amherstburg for her funeral 4 days before Christmas. We wish you all a healthy and happy 2008.

PENNEFATHER, Sarah Jane
Sarah Jane PENNEFATHER was born in Montreal on March 7, 1951. After a long and difficult battle with cancer, Sarah passed away peacefully at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Tuesday, April 22, 2008, with her daughter Caitlin by her side, and surrounded by loving family and loyal Friends. An astute business person and accomplished entrepreneur, Sarah was, above all else, a loving, dedicated and committed mother to her daughter Caitlin. More than that, she was Caitlin's confidant and friend. Sarah lived a full and active life. In her youth, she attended school in Europe and journeyed fearlessly across the globe. Later, in the late 1970's and early 1980's, she worked with Reader's Digest and the Financial Post. She went on to found her own computer consulting firm, becoming quickly absorbed by 'all things computer.' After that, the latest piece of technology was seldom absent from Sarah's side. Through all these accomplishments, Sarah was supremely focused and determined, leaving her unmistakable mark wherever she went. Most recently, Sarah became an avid golfer whose passion for the game was coupled with a voracious appetite for improvement. Even when she was unable to play, the din of the golf channel was always in the background. In golf, as with all things, Sarah jumped in feet first: immersing herself in the game. Sarah's legacy will be simple and clear: a good friend, an accomplished business person, a trusted and true traveler along life's road. But most of all, Sarah will be remembered through her daughter Caitlin. Sarah committed herself to Caitlin's life, always letting her know - in no uncertain terms - how she felt. Sarah supported Caitlin's decisions and advocated tirelessly on her behalf. Sarah's Friends and family would like to extend their warm thanks to Dr. Kevin BEZANSON and to Joan PALMER of the Community Care Access Centre care team. A commemorative service will be held at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East), on Tuesday, May 6 at four o'clock. If desired, Caitlin asks that donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com.

GOUSHLEFF, Chris Nicholas
(July 3rd 1946-July 18th 2008)
Beloved father of Nicco, Kiril, and Katrina. Husband of Jane WINGATE. Brother of Dennis (Elizabeth,) devoted nephew of Louis SPANCHEFF of Thorold.

RICH, Bernard Wakeham
Bernard was at home in Oakville in his bed by the window, his loving wife Margaret and his family were by his side as he closed his eyes for the last time. He died peacefully on June 12th 2008 at the age of 86. Bernard will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years Margaret (DAKERS) and his five daughters Bonnie RICH (Thomas CALVERT), Catherine HANSEN (Kaj), Virginia PEARCE (Richard), Linda ESSIEMBRE (Yvon) and Pamela BEZIC (Val) and his ten grandchildren Mark, Devon, Laurel, Emily, Peter, Eric, James, Rebecca, Joshua and Jennifer. He was born in Beamsville, Ontario, but most of his boyhood memories were of St. Catharines where he met Margaret before going off to the war. During World War 2, Bernard served as a flight instructor with the Royal Canadian Air Force before being assigned to 31 Squadron Royal Air Force as a flight officer and posted to Burma. Upon his return to Canada, he joined Trans Canada Airlines and went on to a distinguished 37 year career. He retired in 1981 as a highly respected 747 Captain with Air Canada after logging 26,600 hours in the air. In his retirement years when he wasn't filling his time maintaining his beloved home in Oakville he was golfing, sailing, flying and sharing happy hour with anyone who happened to drop in. He made many Friends in Naples, Florida where he and Margaret were the center of what they referred to as their "other life". For those who were lucky enough to cross his path, he was a genuine man's man. From skiing the mountains of the Alps to diving in the coral reef, from canoeing Canadian northern lakes to sailing Lake Ontario and everything in between; he took advantage of all life's opportunities and he generously shared his experiences with others. The Boy Scouts at Maple Grove United Church were one of the many groups that benefited from his commitment to community. Bernard was admired for his devotion to his five daughters (Bonnie, Catherine, Ginny, Linda and Pam). His passing is a devastating loss in the lives of his 5 daughters, ten grandchildren and all those whose lives he touched. All of our lives have been enriched by Grandpa's words of wisdom, encouragement and inspiration. His priceless life lessons will continue to guide us all. Our Canadian Airman has flown, to touch the face of God.
Final Departure.
Family will receive visitors in the Ward Funeral Home, 109 Reynolds Street, Oakville (905-844-3221) on Tuesday from 6: 30-8:30 p.m. Service will be held in Saint_John's United Church, 262 Randall Street, Oakville on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 2: 00 p.m. with a reception to follow. Cremation. In lieu of flowers donations to the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

WALSH, James " Jim" Anthony
(Told you I wasn't feeling well)
'It is only with the heart the heart that one can see rightly what rightly; what is essential is invisible to the to the eye' - The Little Prince.
Always the optimist, believed in the goodness of others, a coach at business and at play, trusted all to do the right thing, married 34 wonderful years to his soul mate Heather (née ALEXANDER.) In his quiet times an avid reader, he loved a good biography, his heroes were Gandhi, St. Francis of Assisi, Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Muhammad Ali. Born in Two Mountains, moved into Montreal to attend Loyola College, upon graduation Jim joined Northern Electric in Personnel Management. In the early 70's he discovered sales, and spent the remainder of his career in sales and sales leadership positions. From '73 to '87 Jim held a variety of senior executive positions with Pitney Bowes of Canada. In late '87, Jim moved from the corporate world and began a new career in the general insurance business. His main objective was to have more time with his growing family of Heather and their three young boys, Matthew, Russell, and Graham. In his professional life, Jim's key to his success was his ability to identify, recruit, train and develop his staff to their maximum potential. He coached and convened local soccer and baseball, but his real passion was coaching rep hockey with the Markham Islanders and the Leaside Flames Hockey Clubs. He felt it was a privilege to work with the players and he enjoyed every minute of it. He will be greatly missed by his family and Friends. Jim is survived by Heather and their boys, his sister Ann WALSH of Two Mountains, special family friend Susan CHATTAWAY and many nephews and nieces. His sister Lin BEECROFT passed away in 1991. The family wants to thank Doctor BEZJAK and all the medical staff at Princess Margaret Hospital for their wonderful care since Jim was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2001. We also would like to thank all those responsible for Canada's great healthcare system. A very special thank you to Ted TOBIAS for his support, loving care and Friendship. On April 16th 2008, Jim peacefully passed on at home, surrounded by his sons, in the arms of his devoted wife. A celebration of Jim's life will take place in Markham at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home, 8911 Woodbine Ave, 905-305-8508. Visitation on Sunday April 20th, 2pm-4 p.m. and 7pm-9 p.m. Service on Monday April 21st at 11: 00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Princess Margaret Hospital would be greatly appreciated.
